The LEED Reference Guide states "If a project team wishes to pursue additional credits or thresholds beyond the construction scope of the LEED project, a binding tenant sales and lease agreement must be provided as documentation. This must be signed by the future tenant and include terms related to how the technical credit requirements will be carried out by the tenant. An unsigned or sample lease agreement is not acceptable".
This seems very unfair. This could delay LEED certification (where Gold or Platinum is sought) because you would need to use baseline parameters until a Tenant is in place which could be months after practical completion. This effects how we market the building to get a tenant in the first place.
What is other peoples opinions on this ?
