A gross lease is a type of commercial lease where the tenant pays a flat rental amount, and the landlord pays for all property charges regularly incurred by the ownership, including taxes, utilities and water.[1] Most apartment leases resemble gross leases;[2] the term "gross lease" is distinguished from the term "net lease".

  • identification, like a driver’s license, for a credit or background check
  • information about where you lived before[3]
