  • Commercial Lease. Start a state-specific lease for the rental of commercial property. Specify the term and rent due, as well as whether the landlord or tenant is responsible for property taxes, insurance, and maintenance and repairs.
  • Commercial Sublease. When a tenant vacates commercial property before the lease term has expired, it may be able to rent the premises to a third party. The tenant would be the sublessor and the third party would be the sublessee. Besides preparing a sublease, both parties will want to review the provisions for assignment or subletting in the original lease agreement between the landlord and the sublessor.
  • Sublease Agreement. Tenants of residential property should prepare a sublease agreement if they are seeking to sublease a room or the entire apartment or house to a third party. All parties should review the original lease agreement to see if there are any restrictions on subletting or assigning the premises.
  • Triple Net Lease. Triple net leases are a type of commercial leases where the tenant has to pay for property taxes, insurance, utilities, and maintenance, in addition to the monthly rent.
  • Office Space Lease. When renting an office space, tenants should understand the amount of the rent and duration of the lease. Other important terms include whether the space can be subleased, which parties are responsible for maintenance, and whether any furniture and furnishings will be provided.

                        THIRD AMENDMENT TO OFFICE LEASE

      This Third Amendment to Office Lease is made this 10 day of December,
1997, by and between PGA PROFESSIONAL CENTER, LTD., a Florida limited
partnership ("Landlord") and THE WACKENHUT CORPORATION, a Florida corporation

      WHEREAS, Landlord and Tenant are parties to that certain office Lease,
dated April 18, 1995, as amended by amendments dated November 3, 1995 and August
1, 1996 (collectively, the "Lease"); and

      WHEREAS, Landlord and Tenant wish to modify the Lease as set forth herein.

      NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and
sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as

      1. The foregoing recitals are true and correct and are incorporated herein
by reference.

      2. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings
given to such terms in the Lease.

      3. The Lease is in full force and effect. Neither Landlord nor Tenant is
in default thereunder, and to the knowledge of Landlord and Tenant, no event has
occurred which would, with the giving of notice or the passage of time or both,
constitute an event of default under the Lease.

      4. Landlord hereby agrees to install, at Landlord's expense, 16 new air
conditioning units within the Building in accordance with the specifications
attached hereto as EXHIBIT "K." In addition, the above air conditioning units
will be integrated into and made a part of the Trane energy management system
previously paid for and installed by Tenant during the construction period but
thereafter removed and/or deactivated by Landlord. Landlord agrees to reactivate
the Trane energy management system to complete (or arrange for the completion
of) the training of Tenant's employees in the operation of said system. The
above work shall be completed no later than four (4) weeks from the execution of
this Amendment except that Landlord shall be afforded an additional reasonable
period of time to complete the employee training mentioned above. Tenant hereby
acknowledges that, subject to Landlord's obligations as set forth in this
Paragraph 4 and the items described on the Tenant's punch list dated July 10,
1997 attached hereto as SCHEDULE 1, which Landlord represents and agrees have
been or will be repaired or corrected within four (4) weeks from the execution
of this Amendment, Landlord has satisfied all construction obligations with
respect to the initial construction of the Core Building and Demised Premises
set forth in the Lease.

      5. The Lease is hereby amended as follows:

         (A) JANITORIAL RESPONSIBILITIES: Tenant has agreed to assume the
janitorial responsibilities heretofore performed by Landlord pursuant to
Paragraph 8C of the Lease until such time
<PAGE>   2
as Tenant elects, in its sole discretion, to return such responsibilities to
Landlord. While such arrangement is in effect, Tenant agrees to provide
janitorial services with respect to the Demised Premises at a level at least
equal to that heretofore provided by Landlord. In consideration thereof, Tenant
shall be given a reduction in annual minimum rent equal to $.65 per square foot
of space within the Demised Premises for which Tenant is obligated to pay rent
(Rentable Sq. Ft."), which as of the date hereof totals 91,759 sq. ft., but
which shall be automatically increased to reflect any Additional Space within
the Building hereafter leased by Tenant pursuant to Paragraph 39 of the Lease.
The above reduction shall remain in effect until such time as Tenant elects to
return to Landlord the janitorial responsibilities set forth in Paragraph 8C.
Tenant agrees to give Landlord at least 90 days advance written notice of its
election to return janitorial responsibilities to Landlord. Effective upon the
date specified in Tenant's notice for the return of janitorial responsibilities
to Landlord, the annual minimum rent payable by Tenant under the Lease shall be
increased by an amount equal to $.65 per Rentable Sq. Ft. and Landlord shall
again assume responsibility for janitorial services to the entire Demised
Premises in accordance with Paragraph 8C of the Lease except that if Tenant
desires additional janitorial services over and above those specified in
Paragraph 8C, the increased cost attributable thereto shall be billed separately
to the Tenant.

     (B) ADJUSTMENT TO ANNUAL MINIMUM RENT. In consideration of the Landlord's
agreement to install, maintain and repair the additional air conditioning units
specified in Paragraph 4 hereinabove, Tenant agrees that annual minimum rent
shall be increased by $28,000 such that the annual minimum rent payable by
Tenant for the Demised Premises (after taking into account the reduction set
forth above for Tenant's assumption of janitorial responsibilities) shall be
$19.16 per square foot per annum commencing as of December 1, 1997. Annual
minimum rent commencing, December 1, 1997 shall be $1,758,102.44 or $146,508.54
per month (plus sales tax).

Tenant may elect, at any time and from time to time during the term of the
Lease, to assume all or a part of the property management, administration and
maintenance responsibilities performed by Landlord with respect to the Building
or the Demised Premises. Within thirty (30) days after written notice of
Tenant's intention to assume such responsibilities, Landlord will disclose to
Tenant its expenditures with respect thereto for the two (2) preceding years and
Tenant shall be given a reduction in minimum annual rent equal to the average
cost incurred by Landlord over such two (2) year period for the particular
responsibility(ies) Tenant elects to assume. Tenant may elect to return to
Landlord all or a part of the responsibilities assumed by Tenant pursuant to
this Paragraph upon at least 90 days advance written notice to Landlord, in
which event annual minimum rent shall be increased by an amount equal to the
reduction previously allowed for the particular item to be returned to Landlord.
"Maintenance" as used in this Paragraph means preventative maintenance services,
landscaping, elevator and air-conditioning repairs and other similar items and
is not intended to include structural repairs or capital repair and replacement
responsibilities, which shall at all times remain the obligation of Landlord
pursuant to the Lease. Tenant agrees to perform the responsibilities assumed
pursuant to this paragraph in a manner at least equal to the level of services
previously provided by the Landlord with respect thereto. Should the standard of
service fall below that previously provided by the Landlord, the Landlord, upon
at least thirty (30) days prior written notice, may re-assume responsibility for
such item

of service and eliminate the corresponding credit given to the Tenant.

          (D) EXPANSION OPTION. Provided Tenant is not in default at the time of
exercise or at the time of commencement of the expansion option referred to
hereinbelow, Tenant shall have the option to lease the entire premises known as
Building B, PGA Professional Center (the "Expansion Premises") as more
particularly described in the Amended and Restated Business Lease dated July 1,
1996, between Landlord and Catalfumo Construction, Ltd. (the "Catalfumo Lease").
To exercise the option, Tenant must give Landlord written notice of its
intention to exercise the option no later than October 30, 2000. If Tenant
elects to lease the Expansion Premises, then after such exercise and in any
event prior to April 20, 2001, Landlord and Tenant shall negotiate in good faith
and enter into an amendment to the Lease which shall incorporate the Expansion
Premises therein and which shall provide that (i) the minimum annual rent for
the Expansion Premises shall be the sum of $15.50 per sq. ft. plus operating
expenses and real estate taxes, (ii) the term of the lease of the Expansion
Space shall commence no later than June 30, 2001 (or such earlier or later date
as may be mutually agreed to in writing between the parties) and shall expire on
the same day as the lease expiration date stipulated in the Lease (as the same
may be extended by any renewal options exercised in accordance with Paragraph 40
of the Lease), (iii) the base year for determining Excess Operating Expenses for
the Expansion Premises shall be the year 2001, (iv) Tenant shall be allowed a 90
day period immediately following commencement to perform, install or construct,
at Tenant's expense, any desired improvements to the Expansion Premises ("Tenant
Improvements"), during which 90 day period no rent (which term shall include
pass-through expenses for taxes, insurance and operating expenses) shall accrue
or be payable by Tenant with respect to the Expansion Premises, and (v) all of
the remaining terms and conditions of the Lease shall be applicable to the
Expansion Premises, except that adjustments reflecting the increased total
square footage demised under the Lease shall be made to the Tenant's
Proportionate Share of Excess Operating Expenses, the number of additional
parking spaces available for the exclusive use of Tenant with respect to the
Expansion Premises shall be not less than ______ spaces, and the amount of any
rent reduction then in effect for janitorial or other responsibilities of
Landlord assumed by Tenant in accordance with Paragraphs 5A or 5C hereinabove.

          (E) BUILDING REPAIR. In addition to and not in derogation of the
rights of Tenant under Paragraphs 8H and 18 of the Lease, Tenant shall have the
right (but not the obligation) to effect emergency repairs of the Building or
the Demised Premises for which Landlord is responsible under the Lease and to
deduct the reasonable cost of doing so from the next payment of rent if (i) a
reasonable likelihood exists that damage to person or property will result if
repairs are not effected immediately, and (ii) Tenant gives telephonic notice
thereof to Landlord prior to commencing such repairs (followed by concurrent
written notice via facsimile transmission or hand delivery) and Landlord fails
to take immediate action, (iii) Tenant utilizes, where practical under the
circumstances, the contractor(s) recommended by Landlord (provided, however,
that Tenant's inability to use the contractor(s) recommended by Landlord shall
not prejudice the Tenant's right to deduct the reasonable cost of such repairs
from the rent next coming due), and (iv) the cost of such repairs does not
exceed $20,000 in the aggregate per event, unless Landlord has failed to
undertake completion of such repairs immediately following the giving of a
second written notice thereof by Tenant in which event no such limitation shall

     6.  Except as hereby modified, the Lease remains in full force and effect.
In the event of any conflict between the terms of the Lease and the terms of
this Amendment, the terms of this Amendment shall govern.

as of the 10 day of December, 1997.
