Glossary of Commercial Real Estate Terms

Air Rights

The space or air above a piece of property that by definition legally belongs to or is attached to the property. The air rights of a property can be transferred, sold or rented. The term is often associated with a building that has been built over property that is being used for another purpose (the building is said to be using the air rights). The most common examples of an air rights building are those built over a railroad track or right-of-way, or over a road or highway.

Lis Pendens

The record of notice that a legal action or suit has been filed that will potentially affect the title of a particular piece of property. This document is attached to a property’s title and will usually prevent the property from being sold until a court action or suit is settled.

Double Net Lease

An agreement whereby the Tenant has agreed, in addition to a rent payment, to pay separately for two of the maintaining or operating expense items that would otherwise be paid for by the Landlord for maintaining and operating the building and providing office space to the Tenant.

We were engaged by our client, Adams County, to help locate and negotiate an approximately 35,000 RSF office lease in the NW Denver area for a facility to house several Adams County departments. After researching and touring a number of potential options, we had not yet found the ideal solution. Our tenacity paid off, however, and we located an attractive office building for sale within the targeted location.
