Net Leases and Investments.
Depending on where you live and the polices affecting the area that you are in real estate could entail a lot of things. A net lease is a lease in real estate where the tenant covers the rent as well as all or some part of cost associated with maintenance, usage or operation of the property. The costs could be taxes, utilities, property management fees, trash collection and in other cases janitorial services.
The costs are broken down into three categories which are maintenance, insurance, and taxes. There are different kinds of leases and it would do well for a potential investor to understand them before venturing into a new market. The first category is the single net lease where the tenant is required to pay the taxes that are associated with the property apart from the rent. With the double lease the tenant pays the insurance premiums on the property, the property tax and the rent of the property as well.
The third category or the triple net lease has the tenant paying the rent and all other costs that are associated with the property. Single net lease are not that common in the market because the tenet has very little risk on their shoulders as they cover only the taxes. In covering taxes in the single net leases a landlord might state their wish of the tax payments to go through them so that they can make sure that the tent meets the payments on time and that they pay them in full.
Having made the decision on to make an investment in real estate that has net lease, you need to approach the market with a mentality that these leases will favor the landlord most times and learn more. As the investor you can negotiate the net leases and with the right information on how to go about them you need to consider doing so. Negotiating the leases is a wise move because you will be liable for the rent and the extra expenses regardless of whether your business is suffering losses or doing well.
Ideally the rent before the percentage of the usual cost should be less than it would be if you were to in a standard lease agreement. The investor needs to do well-informed research on all the details that are in a net lease in consideration with all other aspects of the business to have a complete picture of whether the whole thing is a worthy undertaking. The most common alternative to net leases is a gross lease where payment is a flat agreed upon amount per month.
