  • Tens of millions of dollars in the aggregate

Mistakes are common in the world of billing office rents. Almost always mistakes cost the tenant money, thousands if not millions of dollars. Employing skilled lease audit techniques and our niche expertise, we detect even the most complex and esoteric mistakes. We then cause the landlord to correct its mistakes and issue rent credits or refunds to the client.

We also cause the landlord to correct its incorrect methods and formulas so that future rent billings are calculated properly and no overcharges result. Our lease audit process can save a tenant thousands if not millions of dollars.

Our methodology

ďLease auditĒ due diligence benefits the client by saving money and reducing its future rental costs. Our due diligence process of verifying the operating expense, real estate tax and utility charges recoups past overcharges and corrects errors that if not corrected will cost the tenant additional monies in the future. Our reports and advice give our clients useful information about the lease and the landlordís billing methods. By giving our clients a better understanding of the additional rents paid and the landlordís methods of billing rent, our clients can better manage and value their leases.

We are client-focused and solution driven. Our select group of experts provides the very best talent and service. Each member of our group has experience working for or representing landlords as well as tenants. Today, we work only for tenants.
