Gross lease

A gross lease is a type of commercial lease where the tenant pays a flat rental amount, and the landlord pays for all property charges regularly incurred by the ownership, including taxes, utilities and water.[1] Most apartment leases resemble gross leases.[2] The term "gross lease" is distinguished from the term "net lease".
