Lease Term Analysis

A lease is a legally enforceable contract which defines a relationship between a lessor and a lessee for the use of an asset.

Common elements of a lease include:

  • Names of the parties to the lease

  • Deposit
  • Insurance
  • Lease/rental rate
  • Common Area Maintenance (CAM) and escalation terms
