|Case Study #3:
Revising the gross-up methodology used by the landlord
||A very large financial services firm leased 80,000 rsf in a 400,000 rsf office project in Southern California.|
The lease included a provision requiring the landlord to "gross-up" expenses to reflect operating expenses that would have been incurred had the building been fully occupied.
||RTG reviewed the gross-up methodologies employed by a prominent national landlord. We challenged their assumptions and formulae related to electrical utilities and successfully induced them to engage an outside utility consultant to review their methods.|
||The landlordís third party utility expert validated RTGís approach, forcing the landlord to pay an immediate refund of $65,000 to our client plus similar annual savings for the remaining years of the lease.|
