Understanding how rental charges are determined and allocated is very important if dentists wish to safely and effectively negotiate terms within their budgets. The one thing most dental practice leases have in common is that, in addition to specifying the amount of "rent" to be paid, they require that dentists also pay the landlord's operating costs (real estate taxes, insurance premiums, maintenance costs, etc.).
• Gross Lease
• Pass-Through Lease
• Full Service Lease
• Net Lease
As you might imagine, it is easy to get confused, even tripped up by a fast-talking office broker or landlord. So understanding what is at stake and how the landlord's program is set up is paramount if you wish to avoid a rude surprise when it comes time to pay the "rent".
