Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On January 14, 2013, The Wells Fund XI-Fund XII-REIT Joint Venture (the “Joint Venture”), a joint venture partnership between Wells Real Estate Fund XI, L.P., Wells Real Estate Fund XII, L.P. (the “Registrant”), and Piedmont Operating Partnership, LP, executed an agreement to lease approximately 11% of an office building containing approximately 70,200 rentable square feet located in Leawood, Kansas (the "20/20 Building") to Meara Welch Browne, P.C. (the "Tenant"), an unrelated party, for 88 months. The Registrant owns an equity interest of approximately 17.09% in the Joint Venture, which owns 100% of the 20/20 Building.
The commencement date of the aforementioned agreement is the earlier of the date on which (i) the tenant improvements are substantially complete or would have been complete without tenant delay days, (ii) the Tenant accepts possession and occupies the space, or (iii) March 1, 2013. Based on an estimated commencement date of March 1, 2013, following a four-month base rental abatement period, annual base rent of $18.25 per square foot shall be payable through February 28, 2014. The Tenant's annual base rent will increase by 2% annually beginning on March 1, 2014. In addition to monthly base rent, the Tenant is also required to reimburse the Joint Venture for its pro rata share of all operating costs and real estate taxes for the 20/20 Building that exceed base year expenses. In addition, the Tenant is entitled to a landlord-funded tenant allowance of approximately $193,000. In addition, the Tenant may elect to increase its tenant allowance by $24 per rentable square foot. If this election is made, the additional tenant allowance will be reimbursed monthly in the form of additional base rent over the term of the lease. The Tenant has the right to extend the lease term for an additional five-year period at the then fair market rental rate.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this Current Report on Form 8-K to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
