capital contribution
A lump sum paid to a tenant on taking a lease of a new property. The purpose is usually to induce a tenant with a strong covenant to take a lease, sometimes as a lead tenant, to encourage others to come to an office building. This is often on the basis that the property can then be sold to an institution as an investment property whose value will be enhanced by the quality of the lease.
