What is Expense Stop?

An expense stop is a type of provision that is often included in a commercial lease agreement. It sets a limit on the amount of money that the landlord will pay for certain expenses, such as property taxes, insurance or repairs. After the limit is reached, the tenant is responsible for paying any additional expenses. This type of provision helps to ensure that the landlord does not incur excessive expenses for the property and that the tenant is aware of their financial obligations.
