    negotiating a commercial lease

    ekp111 Newbie
      Can anyone give me some pointers on negotiating a commercial lease? I am starting a Math and Reading franchise in ma. The landlord is asking for a triple net lease and asking me to pay 8.47% of all of his costs as CAMS. That seems pretty high. How can I negotiate a fixed rate instead and how do I find out what the going lease rate in that neighborhood is? I know the rates have gone down a lot. I am trying to do this myself instead of hiring an attorney. Any advice or suggestionns from anyone who might have done this themselves?? Please help.
