Triple net lease

A lease providing that the tenant pay for all maintenance expenses, plus utilities, taxes, and insurance. This results in lower risk for investors, who usually form a limited partnership.


A lease in which the tenant is responsible for costs in addition to rent. The tenant is responsible for net property taxes, net insurance, and net maintenance for the duration of the lease, which is the origin of the name. Because the tenant is responsible for costs that the lessor would otherwise pay, rent on a triple-net lease is usually lower than on other leases.
