  • Triple Net Lease

    In a Triple Net Lease, the tenant is responsible for the taxes, insurance, and maintenance, in additon to the lease payments, on a property.

    Triple net lease properties are often associated with single tenant, stand alone retail properties such as Drugstores, Bank Branches, Discount/Dollar Stores, or Restaurants (fast food or casual dining); however, a wide variety of triple net lease properties are available to investors.

    Net Lease properties may vary by:

    • Asset Type: Retail, Office, or Industrial
    • Location: major metro to smaller markets
    • Lease Term: 5 – 25 years
    • Tenant Credit Quality: Investment Grade & Below
    • Size and value of property: $2.5 to $70 million or more
    • Single or Multi-tenant
