Depends on the lease and what can be negotiated. We ALWAYS ask for a security deposit to cover the anticipated LAST month's rent + CAM. If the rent schedule calls for rents to be increased over the term of the lease to where it is higher at the end - then that is what we ask for / require and add on anticipated CAM - ALWAYS. Of course - all is negotiable between all the parties and addressed in the lease and in the market conditions of the property. Scott Brown Commercial Property Mgmt., Denton, TX

Depends on the lease, but usually includes CAM.
