Real estate tax provisions usually provide that a tenant will pay either its proportionate share of all real estate taxes or the proportionate share of all such real estate taxes that are in excess of real estate taxes assessed against a property in a predetermined base tax year. There are several clauses, however, that rarely find their way into a landlord’s initial draft of the lease that may be beneficial to a tenant. In addition, certain real estate tax provisions that are typically included in a landlord’s standard lease form need to be carefully reviewed to make sure they are fair to both the landlord and the tenant.

Part Two of a Two-Part Article
Part One of this article outlined the basic elements of a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement (SNDA), which regulates two competing interests in the same property — tenant’s right to possess its premises pursuant to its lease and mortgage lender’s security interest in that same premises. Part Two explains the differences between the concepts of “non-disturbance” and “recognition,” while contending that lease recognition is more important to the tenant than not having its possession disturbed.
