What you need to know about Triple Net Leases

What you need to know about Triple Net Leases

In real estate, every property and every transaction are unique. It’s important to become familiar with the various kinds of commercial and industrial leases to best serve your specific interests. Keep reading for a basic overview on industrial triple net leases.

What Is A Triple Net Lease?

Generally, a net lease is a common agreement entered into by commercial and industrial landlords and tenants where the tenant bears the cost for some or all of the expenses that are traditionally covered by a landlord. These expenses are paid in addition to a calculated base rent and may include the cost of real estate taxes, operating expenses, utilities, and insurance. A triple net lease, or a “net-net-net” lease, is usually used when a single tenant leases an entire industrial property and agrees to cover all of the additional expenses mentioned above. Tenants will typically pay these expenses monthly based on a landlord’s estimate of yearly costs.

Why Should a Landlord Consider a Triple Net Lease?

Industrial triple net leases are fairly common and generally favor landlords as they manage risk and ensure a property’s profitability. Triple net leases reduce the effects of inflation by shifting any increase in property tax, insurance premiums, and operating expenses onto the tenant. This allows industrial landlords to manage their expectations for a fixed net return and reduce the risks associated with potential expense increases. These arrangements can also relieve the landlord from its duty to maintain and repair the premises and are great for someone looking to make a more hands-off investment in real estate.

Are there Benefits for Tenants in a Triple Net Lease?

A triple net lease can be the right option for a very specific kind of tenant. This lease will best serve a large sophisticated industrial tenant who knows the business and is looking to lease either a large portion or the entirety of a property. These tenants will have more bargaining power and may be able to negotiate a lower base rent. A tenant in a triple net lease may also customize their space and generally operate with more freedom than they would have otherwise in a traditional lease.

What is an Industrial Gross Lease?

What is an Industrial Gross Lease?

An industrial gross lease which is sometimes referred to as a modified gross lease is a type of lease commonly used for industrial properties. These leases are meant to be mutually beneficial to property owners and industrial tenants. In an industrial gross lease, the tenant is responsible for some, but not all operating expenses incurred at the property. Typically, the operating expenses will be factored into one monthly payment to the landlord in addition to the agreed upon rent.

The term industrial gross lease has broad meaning, and these are usually heavily negotiated to fit the specific needs and wants of the landlord and tenant at each site. This is an attractive arrangement for industrial tenants who wishes to make a single payment to the landlord for operating expenses as opposed to assuming complete responsibility like in a triple net lease.

Pros and Cons of an Industrial Gross Lease

An industrial lease arrangement offers advantages to both property owners and tenants. Property owners can minimize their financial risk by having tenants assume partial responsibility for operating expenses. An industrial gross lease offers tenants a location for their business and extended controls without assuming all of the risks and expenses associated with being a property owner.

Property owners and investors should keep in mind that an industrial gross lease arrangement will require them to oversee and manage the property and assume most of the financial responsibilities related to being a landlord. An industrial gross lease is not the most hands off arrangement for a property owner who wishes to limit their involvement in managing their property. Tenants should consider whether they have the financial means to make the increased rent payments each month covering some of the property’s operating costs.
