While triple net lease properties are typically considered one of the safest types of investments, there is always some level of risk associated with any type of investment. Inflation can cause problems if rent does not stay on track with market rates. The situation could be exacerbated if a tenant is into, or nearing, lease renewal options. NNN lease renewal options sometimes come with smaller rent increases. This lower rent, paired with long leases, could create a drop in yields.

The tenant’s credit rating, future profitability, and investment objectives are other factors that should be carefully studied before making large, long-term investments. Most importantly, negotiate carefully when looking to purchase a triple net lease property.
