Full Service Lease - Types of Commercial Leases - Part 3
Full Service Lease - Generally applicable to multi-tenant office buildings, this lease has one monthly rate and covers all the costs associated with the property including electrical, janitorial, management, property taxes and property insurance. A Full Service lease does generally allow for the landlord to pass along any increases in its expenses to the Tenants each year. This increase is usually calculated by taking the actual expenses for any given year and subtracting the Expense Stop established in the lease. A highly similar lease type used in the Industrial & Flex market is the Industrial Gross Lease.

A commercial lease is, at least in general, a detailed specification of what property you will gain access to as a tenant, along with the responsibilities of tenant and landlord in terms of the elements of the property and the expenses involved. There are many different types of leases. Each should be analyzed carefully to see that they meet your expectations. Divvying up who will pay for what costs - now and throughout the life of the lease - is a major aspect of any lease. Some (many if not most, I hope) of these costs categories are summarized in the table below:

A big part of a lease is outlining how these and other expenses are divided between landlord and tenant and how these expenses can vary over time for the tenant - which can, and probably should be limited by caps applied in the lease.
