What is a “Fully Net” or “Absolute Net” lease?


A Fully Net lease is a commercial real estate leasing agreement in which the tenant agrees to pay the rent, the property taxes, and all other aspects of property maintenance, including major repairs or replacement. 

It’s a type of passthrough lease in which all the property taxes, and other costs (except mortgage payments) become the tenant’s responsibility. In a fully net lease, the tenant is responsible for all costs associated with the property other than debt service, if any.
