CAM stands for common area maintenance. The CAM fee is a charge to maintain the common areas of the property for example the parking lot or lobby.

Shyda H. is absolutely correct! If you are negotiating a lease for retail space especially, it is quite common that the lease type is a NNN or triple net lease. Whereby; the Nets are broken down into CAM, Real Estate Taxes, Property Insurance and Operating Expenses aka (CAM expenses). The figure you would pay as a tenant as part of your rent is generally broken down per square foot of space that you are leasing divisible by the total square footage of the shopping center.
