Lease Review Services
Shuster & Company, PC is a provider of lease review services (also known as rent reviews, CAM reviews or escalation reviews) for tenants. We focus on the analysis of commercial real estate leases and conducting lease reviews of rent, operating expenses, common area maintenance (CAM) expenses and real estate taxes to identify potential financial savings on behalf of forensic accounting tenants.
Many leases have wording that provide tenants with "audit rights" or "inspection rights" to analyze the landlord's accounting records and perform a lease review. Companies that utilize these rights properly are much less likely to incur overcharges made by their landlord. Through the lease review process, we can identify if errors and overcharges have occurred, which may allow tenants to recoup monies they may have already overpaid.
