An "Expense Stop" is a limit set in a lease, usually for commercial properties like offices or stores, where the landlord will only pay for a certain amount of the tenant's expenses, like taxes or maintenance. If the expenses go over that limit, the tenant has to pay the extra costs.
It's similar to being given a set budget for a work event, and if the costs exceed that budget, the additional expenses must be covered personally or by the department.
"Wit & Whimsy with the Dumb Ox: Unlocking Knowledge with Rhyme:"
In the land of leases, for shops and for spaces,
An "Expense Stop" sets limits and paces.
It's a cap on the costs the landlord will pay,
And when the limit is reached, the tenant must weigh.
Like hosting a party, with a budget so tight,
When costs start to climb, beyond what feels right.
You reach for your wallet, to cover what's due,
For expenses exceeding, the limit set true.
In leases for offices, stores, and more,
Expense Stops ensure costs don't soar.
With limits in place, to keep budgets in check,
Expense Stops keep expenses from becoming a wreck.
