Navigating Lease Audits: A Multi-Unit Tenant’s Guide

Lease Audit Guide and best practices

As a commercial tenant, managing your lease agreements involves more than just paying rent on time. It requires a keen eye for detail and a proactive approach to ensure that you’re not being overcharged or taken advantage of by your landlord. While the idea of lease audits might not always be at the forefront of your mind, the potential ramifications of overbilling can significantly impact your bottom line and disrupt business operations.

Commercial leases are intricate documents filled with various provisions, including clauses specifying costs to be passed through to tenants such as repairs, utilities, taxes, and Common Area Maintenance (CAM) fees. These costs can quickly add up, making it crucial for tenants to understand their lease terms thoroughly.

Unfortunately, mistakes in expense calculations and lease interpretation errors are all too common, often skewing in favor of the landlord. This is where the importance of conducting targeted lease audits comes into play. By scrutinizing your lease agreements and expense statements, you can ensure that you’re paying your fair share of expenses while safeguarding yourself against ambiguous language that may tilt the scales in the landlord’s favor.
