Our Cook County commercial real estate attorneys discuss the different types of commercial leases and tips for negotiating these leases. The different type of leases are: single net lease or net lease, net-net or double net lease, triple net lease, and full service gross or modified gross lease. While some commercial leases may truly be non-negotiable, almost every landlord or listing agent allows some “wiggle room” for negotiation. Negotiations can go back and forth several times, so be patient. If you have not heard back on your offer for 1 or 2 business days, feel free to follow up. Some tips for negotiating this lease are: identifying the length or term of the lease you would prefer, research comparable rents, determine you desired occupancy date, demanding favorable clauses, and reading the termination clause closely.
