Common Area Maintenace Charges

Nancy L. Lanard

Practice Area:Commercial

Outcome:Typically we are able to negotiate a substantial number of the 28 items into the lease saving the tenant/client money each month

Description:What can be negotiated relating to Common Area Maintenance (CAM) charges? These are often called "additional rent" in a commercial lease and can substantially add to the monthly overhead of a retail business. We have an exhibit which we add to ever lease we negotiate which has 28 items to exclude from CAM charges.
