Definitions of Common Commercial Leasing Terms
During the lease negotiation process, you may encounter unfamiliar terms related to the industry. Definitions for frequently used terms include:
- Rentable square feet—the Building Owners and Management Administration (BOMA) defines rentable square feet as “usable square feet” in addition to part of the common area. RSF is calculated by taking the usable square feet amount and adding the percentage of the building’s common area, which is divided among the other tenants leasing areas of the building based on the percent of a tenant’s usable square feet.
- Usable square feet—indicates the square footage amount used only by the tenant. USF generally includes such areas as closets, rest rooms and other storage facilities
- Load factor—this is the calculation of the monthly rental costs that combines a percentage of common area square feet and usable square feet. Areas included in the load factor equation are elevators, lobbies, common hallways and stairwells
- Double net lease—a commercial lease in which the tenant pays part of or all of the insurance and taxes associated with using the property.
- Fully serviced lease—when the tenant agrees that the monthly rent on a building includes specific services such as trash collection, water and sewage and property taxes, then he or she is said to have agreed to a fully serviced lease.
