Amounts charged to tenants for expenses to maintain hallways, restrooms, parking lots, and other Common Areas. Example: In a regional mall, the cost of utilities needed to heat, cool, light, and clean the common areas was allocated to each tenant as common area maintenance, charged back to tenants.
