A triple net lease is a type of net lease among the types of real estate lease contracts in the United States. A single net lease is a lease contract in which the lessee is responsible for paying real estate property taxes in addition to the rent, while a double net lease is a lease contract in which the lessee is responsible for paying property taxes and building insurance in addition to the rent. Here, a triple net lease is a rental agreement in which the tenant is responsible for property taxes, building insurance, building maintenance and repairs, along with the rent.
