Charging a tenant rates

Question ID: 19961

As Salaamu Alaykum
Respected Mufti Saheb

Is it permissible to include in a lease agreement with a commercial tenant
that they will be responsible for the following:
1) Monthly municipal rates which will be billed by the Municipality to the
landlord. These charges will be passed on to the tenant.
2) If at any time during the lease agreement there are any increases by the
municipality in rates, the tenant will also be liable for such increase.

Jazak Allah
