What are controllables in relation to commercial real estate?

In terms of commercial real estate, controllables are items that a landlord typically has some control over keeping in a certain budget (maintenance, property management fees, etc.) as it relates to CAM (Common Area Maintenance) expenses.

How do cumulative CAM caps work?

Cumulative CAM (Common Area Maintenance) caps are limits imposed on how much expenses the tenant pays can increase each year over their base rent. With cumulative caps, any unused amount typically rolls over into the next year. This means if expenses are allowed to rise 5% and they only rose by 3% that year, then they property owner could carry over 2% for a 7% rise in cost allowed the following year.
