Lease Audit Services

Real Estate is one of a corporation's most substantial expenses. Commercial leases are intricate documents that are interpreted by landlords, their attorneys, accountants, architects, engineers & contractors. Relying solely on their calculations and interpretations risk exposure to significant rent overcharges. Most leases place the burden on the tenant to identify errors and bring them to the landlord's attention.

A lease audit is a comprehensive analysis that identifies billing oversights and errors. It recovers rent overpayments and ensures that the landlords billing practices are validated with the original negotiated lease terms.

The lease audit is a complete review of every expense incurred by a tenant as part of their lease commitment.

Lease Audit items include:

  • Base Rent
  • Escalations
  • Real Estate Taxes
  • Operating Expenses
  • Common Area (CAM) Expenses
  • Construction Costs
  • Utility Charges
  • Management Fees
  • Space Measurement
  • Gross Ups

Combining a thorough investigation of all lease documentation, strategies are implemented in order to obtain the most favorable terms for maximum recovery.
