Percentage Lease

From lawbrain.com

A rental agreement, usually with respect to a retail business property, whereby a portion of the gross sales or net sales of the tenant is used to determine the rent.

There is generally a provision in a percentage lease that calls for a minimum or base rental. It protects the lessor in the event of poor sales.
