Expressed in pounds per square foot, the live load equals the total weight of all occupants, materials and equipment to be found in a building.
LOSS FACTOR, OR LOAD FACTOR
The factor (expressed as a %) that when multiplied by the usable square footage of a multi-tenant building yields the proration of common area allocated to that usable space. Rentable area is then the usable square footage plus the common area proration.
MEANS OF EGRESS
A path to an exit. This includes any combination of doors, stairwells and passageways.
MILLWORK
Custom woodwork, produced in a mill or shop, specifically for a building. The items could be doors, sashes, trim, railings, or custom fixtures.

N/A
OPERATING EXPENSES
All expenses associated with the operation of a building including, but not limited to, utilities, taxes, insurance, maintenance, janitorial service and security.
OPERATING EXPENSE PASS THROUGH
An agreement between the tenant and landlord which states that the tenant will pay a pro-rate share of the increases in operating expenses over those in the designated base year, or in addition to the expense stop.
PRELIMINARY PLAN
A floorplan, which shows the degree to which your space requirements and layout will fit into a particular space. This plan typically shows interior office walls only.
PROPORTIONATE SHARE, OR PRO rate SHARE
The area of the building, expressed as a percentage, which a tenant leases (the tenant’s rentable area divided by the total rentable area of the building). This number is used in allocating building operating expenses and taxes.
PUNCH LIST
An itemized list that notes any incomplete or un-satisfactory construction. It is prepared after the contractor has notified the owner that the tenant improvements are substantially complete. Major problems on the punch list should be fixed prior to move-in. Minor ones are usually dealt with after the move-in.

N/A
RAILROAD

Drill Track – Connects main line with individual spurs and is maintained by the railroad.

Spur Track – Serves individual properties installed and maintained by the industry user.
RAISED FLOORING
A process whereby metal flooring is placed over existing flooring to allow for cables to be installed in between. Raised flooring is often recommended for computer installations and for tenants who must frequently reconfigure their space. Raised flooring reduces the floor-to-ceiling height of a room by 4 to 8 inches.
RENT COMMENCEMENT DATE
The date on which the tenant begins paying rent. Depending on the nature of the market, it may coincide with the lease commencement date or it may be several months after that.
RENTABLE AREA
The total area for which rent is paid. It includes the space actually occupied by the tenant, as well as a pro-rate allocation for common areas such as public corridors, building lobbies, core areas, and restrooms.
RENTAL TERMS

Effective Rent – The dollar per square foot per year figure, which the tenant pays on an average over the term of the lease. Example: A 5-year lease with 6 months’ free rent offers an effective rate with a 10% discount from the face rate.

Face Rate – The identified rental rate in a lease, which is subsequently discounted by concessions offered by the landlord, also known as contract rate.

Free Rent – Period of time in which the tenant occupies the premises under the lease, but does not pay rent.

Full Service – A rental rate which includes normal building standard services as provided by the landlord within the base year rental. Tenant will pay its pro-rate share of subsequent increases in the operating expenses over the base year or expense stop.

Net Rent – A lease in which the tenant is responsible for operating expenses associated with its proportionate share of occupancy of the building as of the lease commencement date. There is no base year or expense stop.

Rent Escalations – Changes in the base rent during the term of the lease. Usually tied to “fair market” or C.P.I. reviews.

Stair-Stepped Rent – A rental rate which increases by fixed amounts during the period of the lease term.
SECTION DRAWING
A reduced scale representation of a vertical slice through a space or structure.
SETBACK ORDINANCE
Part of a zoning ordinance. Regulates the distance from the lot line to the point where improvements may be constructed.
SPACE PLAN
See Preliminary Plan.
SPAN
Unobstructed area between columns within an industrial building.
STUDS
Vertical supporting members in the walls.
SUBORDINATION
An agreement to give priority to a right over another right.
SUBROGATION
The substitution of one creditor for another, coupled with transference of the claims and rights of the old creditor. Thus, without a “waiver of subrogation”, if a tenant negli- gently causes the destruction of or damage to the lease hold premises, the landlord’s insurance company, after paying for the damage, will have the rights of the landlord to sue the tenant for its negligence.
SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION
The point in the construction process when the contractor certifies that the majority of work has been completed, after which the tenant is expected to move in. To avoid unnecessary expense and confusion, a tenant should make sure his understanding of substantial completion is the same as the landlord’s. Without a mutually agreed upon definition, a tenant may be expected to move in before long-lead-time items are complete (such as the installation of glass doors or special lighting), or before the tenant has had a chance to compile a punch list that identifies items needing repair or completion.
TENANT IMPROVEMENT ALLOWANCE
A dollar amount or a list of items which the landlord contributes to the tenant in exchange for the rent being charged.
TRUCK HIGH
Refers to the design of a building which provides loading through doors at truck level. Normal height would be between 42 and 52 inches.
TRUCK INDENTURE
A cutout inside a building to provide inside truck area.
TRUCK WELL
A ramp and/or level area below ground level which creates loading at truck height. A pump is required to clear water from the well following rains.
TURN-KEY
A complete build-out of the tenant’s premises to the tenant’s specifications.
UNDERFLOOR DUCT
A metal duct built into the floor for telephone and electrical cable access.
USABLE AREA
The space which the occupant actually occupies, which is less than the rentable area.

N/A
WAIVER OF CIVIL CODE SECTIONS

Civil Code Sections 1932(2) & 1933(4) – Provides that a lease shall terminate on a major destruction of the premises. These Civil Codes must be waived, because the tenant’s rights in the event of such destruction will be governed solely by the lease provisions.

Civil Code Section 1942 – Provides that if the landlord neglects to make certain repairs to the premises as required by the lease, the tenant may vacate the premises and terminate the lease. This provision is customarily required to be waived by the landlord, because it would otherwise give the tenant the right to terminate the lease for a relatively small repair cost.
WINDOW MULLIONS
Those divisions on large windows which can accept tenant partitioning to create offices.
WORK LETTER
A letter that is a part of the lease. It defines the landlord’s contribution toward the construction of the tenant improvements.
WORKING DRAWINGS
Detailed construction drawings required for obtaining building permits and the buildout of the space. (See Construction Documents).

N/A

N/A
ZONES
The identified portions of an office area served by the HVAC system which have separate thermostatic and temperature controls.


 
 

Frequently Asked Questions

A landlord needs an experienced broker to negotiate in situations like Use clauses and Exclusive Use clauses that could hinder a landlord’s right to other preferred uses in the project. Also, by hiring a broker, a landlord will minimize loss of rent by exposing the project to a much higher number of prospective tenants.
Ask the advice of an experienced broker when you start planning a development. Up-to-date knowledge of current market conditions will help you build the appropriate space to meet market demands.
Depending on the size of the project, many brokers provide written reports once per month. However, a broker should be spending time finding tenants or buyers rather than preparing written reports. So frequent verbal contact makes better use of their time.
You will need to bring a copy of your most current financial statement or a balance sheet showing all of assets and liabilities for each party signing as a tenant. You should also bring any information about your current or proposed business. Interior photographs of your existing business or catalogue pictures are also important to show the landlord what your plans are for the space. If it is a new business, you should bring a business plan and information about your business experience.
Typical retail leases run between five years and 15 years, often with an option to renew for an additional five years.
Landlords understand that retail tenants need time to get city permits for improvements. Typically restaurants and other uses that require more remodeling will receive more time than a retail store. However, landlords often grant from thirty to one hundred and twenty days rent-free.
The most common issues between landlords and tenants usually involve tenant improvements. That’s why it’s important for you, as a tenant, to have an experienced and licensed contractor and architect to build out improvements and get the necessary governmental permits. In the long run, it will save both time and money.
You will need to provide the following information for the landlord’s approval:
• A copy of your insurance policy
• A tenant improvement plans prior to submitting to the city
• Contractor information (such as license number) before you sign any construction agreements.

You may wish to contact the telephone company to get your company name and number in the phone book, and also change all entry door locks.
