- exercise of a renewal/extension option where extension period is included in the original lease term
- exercise of a renewal/extension option where extension period is not included in the original lease term
- negotiation of renewal/extension period not covered by a renewal/extension option in the original lease
- re-negotiation of a lease, including a renewal/extension period, that affects the terms and conditions during the original lease term.
