There are four primary types of commercial real estate leases, each requiring different levels of responsibility from the landlord and the tenant. In addition to rent, a single net lease makes the tenant responsible for paying property taxes; a double-net lease makes the tenant responsible for paying property taxes and insurance; and a triple-net lease makes the tenant responsible for paying property taxes, insurance and maintenance. Under a gross lease the tenant pays only rent; the landlord pays for the building’s property taxes, insurance and maintenance.
