What is a triple net lease?

The lease is a “triple net lease”. This means Augusta Penrose (the entity that investors invest in) as the landlord is insulated from all liability in relation to the property (other than in the event of damage or destruction, for which Augusta Penrose is insured). For example, any costs of capital expenditure, repair, maintenance and other works whether structural or otherwise are not Augusta Penrose’s responsibility. The lease stipulates the tenant is responsible and has the same liabilities in regards to the premises as if the tenant was the “owner”. This is widely considered the most landlord friendly form of lease.
