Definition of CAM Charges

“CAM Charges” are the tenant's share of the lessor/landlord's costs to maintain the common area.  However, for the sake of convenience in drafting leases, other costs of the lessor/landlord are sometimes included in the definition of CAM Charges, even if those costs do not relate specifically to the Common Area.
