CAM in a commercial real estate lease stands for Common Area Maintenance. Some often confuse NNN as being CAM however that is not correct. CAM is a component of the NNN.
CAM’s include repair, maintenance, and upkeep to such things as landscaping, parking lots, roofs, interior and exterior building components, HVAC, maintenance fees, etc.
When major replacements are needed to the Roof or parking lot those would not be considered CAM items.
All commercial real estate properties will have CAM charges whether you are leasing warehouse, retail, or office space.
