Cost Recovery Group Commercial Services

CRG can help you reduce your rent expense. The two biggest areas of rent overpayment are Minimum Rent and Common Area Maintenance (CAM). Mimimum Rent is frequently overpaid because of improper determination of initial lease year, step-up date miscalculation or consumer price index error. CAM costs are your building's operating costs, including:

  • Building Repairs
  • Maintenance Expense
  • Maintenance Payroll
  • Parking Lot Repairs
  • Security
  • Sweeping
  • Snow Removal
  • Real Estate Taxes
  • Utilities

CRG has the skills to audit your leases, find any underdeductions and overcharges and recover them.

Your lease sets the calculation of percentage rent, including the determination of the correct breakpoint and any allowable offsets to gross sales. Your lease also sets the timing and limit of any increases in fixed minimum rent and the extent to which the shopping center's operating cost can be passed along to you. CRG will thoroughly review your lease and your rent payment history. We will identify any errors that we have found and calculate the amount of any overpayment and credit due you. We will prepare a claim letter for your credit to your landlord. We will handle any correspondence related to your claim. CRG's services include site visits where appropriate.
