Types of net
There are standard names in the commercial real estate
industry for different sets of costs passed on to the tenant in a net lease. Double and triple-net leases are more
common forms of net leases.
Single net lease
In a single net lease (sometimes shortened to Net or N), the lessee or tenant is responsible for paying property
taxes as well as the base rent.
Double net lease
In a double net lease (Net-Net or NN) the lessee or tenant is responsible for property tax and building
insurance. The lessor or landlord is responsible for any expenses incurred for structural repairs and common area
maintenance. "Roof and structure" is sometimes calculated as a reserve amount, which the tenant must
Triple net lease
A triple net lease (Net-Net-Net or NNN) is a lease agreement on a property where the tenant or lessee agrees
to pay all real estate taxes, building insurance, and maintenance on the property. In such a lease, the tenant or
lessee is responsible for all costs associated with the repair and maintenance of any common area. This form of
lease is most frequently used for commercial freestanding buildings. However, it has also been used in single
family residential rental real estate properties.
Bondable lease (Absolute
A bondable lease (also called an "absolute triple net lease", "true triple net lease", or a
"hell-or-high-water lease") is the most extreme variation of a triple net lease, where the tenant carries every
imaginable real estate risk related to the property. Notably, these additional risks include the obligations to
rebuild after a casualty, regardless of the adequacy of insurance proceeds, and to pay rent after partial or full
condemnation. These leases are not terminable by the tenant, nor is it permissible for rent to
be abated under them.
The concept is to make the rent
absolutely net under all circumstances, equivalent to the obligations of a bond. An example of this type of lease would be
a leaseback arrangement in which a retailer leases back the building it formerly
owned and continues to run the operate its business at the location.
Typically, triple net leases
(NNN) are 'equity investments', rather than 'cash flow investments'. For example, the investor will finance a
significant portion of the purchase price on a property and pay the resulting mortgage with the lessee's monthly
owed rent. There is usually a small amount left over as monthly profit for the investor (positive cash flow), but
the greater investment payoff comes from the tax shields afforded to the investor through the use of leverage. The resulting
property is then sold after a period of building up equity.
