Triple Net (NNN), Double Net (NN) and Gross Leases in Commercial Real Estate
A Gross lease is a type of lease wherein the landlord pays the property taxes, insurance, and maintenance (CAM). The tenant is only responsible for paying a flat fee as rent, the landlord will be responsible for all costs related to property ownership. When determining the rent, the landowner accounts for all the anticipated costs for the property and charges a flat fee that will cover the costs and cater to the required profit margin.
Modified Gross Leases in Commercial Real Estate
The modified gross lease, also sometimes referred to as the modified net lease, is a combination of the gross lease and the net lease. The operating expenses are both the landlord and tenant's responsibility. A modified gross lease falls in between the spectrum of a net lease (where the tenant is responsible for the operating expenses) and a gross lease (where the landlord is responsible for the operating expense).
