Visual Lease was originally developed by KBA Lease Services, a real estate consulting firm specializing in lease auditing. Lease auditing is the validation of tenant obligations for building operating costs, taxes, utilities and other similar costs.  It involves a specialized and disciplined review of lease documents, invoices and various other materials as well as a review of landlord books and records.  Lease audits are contemplated by most lease agreements and are common in the commercial real estate industry.  Lease audits help you:

  • Recover overpayments
  • Keep leases in compliance and bring them in line with original projections
  • Increase landlord awareness of errors
  • Improve internal controls
  • Identify areas for improvement of future leases
