Business Leases Are Not the Same as Apartment Leases
Business leases vary dramatically from leases for private apartments or homes. For private dwelling leases, the landlord is often on the hook for almost every property-related expense. Most commercial leases may have lower rent for the space, but everything building-related is likely the tenant’s responsibility, from insurance to maintenance. Looking at the different lease types will help you see that rent is only a small factor when looking at other costs and liabilities you might not know of.
