Skip this explanation and go directly to the Questions below:

This Lease is appropriate and intended as an office lease in a multi-tenant office building. Rent is based on a fixed dollar amount, with provisions for sharing or not sharing common area maintenance ("CAM") costs. The rent amount is purely subject to market conditions and negotiation. Most leases now require Tenant to pay some or all of Landlord's costs (NNN Lease), although there still exist leases where the Tenant pays only rent and no CAM charges (Gross Lease).

This form is designed to provide many options including the initial lease term ( the time which the tenant is in possession), whether to grant one or more options for renewal, and if so, for how long, and options to maintain the rent as fixed, or adjusted. If the rent is to be adjusted, this form permits you to choose different alternatives of how such adjustment will be made.
