We determine if an arrangement is a lease at inception. We have operating leases for office and temporary living space as well as for some office equipment. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets, current operating lease liability and non-current operating lease liability in our condensed consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. Each time the Company acquires a business, the ROU assets and the lease liabilities are recorded at fair value as of the date of acquisition. The Company does not have any finance leases.
ROU assets represent our right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date based on the estimated present value of lease payments over the lease term.
As most of our leases do not provide an implicit rate, we use our estimated incremental borrowing rates, based on information available at the lease commencement date, in determining the present value of lease payments. We give consideration to our bank financing arrangements, geographical location and collateralization of assets when calculating our incremental borrowing rates.
Our lease terms typically include options to extend the lease. We consider the options in determining the ROU assets and lease liabilities. Leases with a term of less than 12 months are not recorded in the condensed consolidated balance sheets. Our lease agreements do not contain any residual value guarantees. For real estate leases, we account for the lease and non-lease components as a single lease component. Some leases include escalation clauses and termination options that are factored in the determination of the lease payments when appropriate.
If a lease is modified after the effective date, the operating lease ROU asset and liability are re-measured using the current incremental borrowing rate. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, there was $686,000 of unoccupied lease charges for two of the Company’s facilities. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, there was approximately $300,000 of unoccupied lease charges. Additionally, during 2020, there was a lease impairment of approximately $383,000 since the Company is no longer using one of its leased facilities.
In February 2021, the Company was able to settle one of the lease obligations assumed in connection with the Meridian acquisition for an amount that approximated the remaining lease liability.
During the current quarter, the Company decided to terminate one of its leases in Pakistan which, with a modification, will expire as of the end of the year. The Company does not intend to renew this lease and will consolidate its employees into the remaining facilities. As a result of the termination, the Company incurred a loss of approximately $18,000 which has been included in loss on lease termination, impairment and unoccupied lease charges in the September 30, 2021 condensed consolidated statement of operations.
Lease expense is included in direct operating costs and general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations based on the nature of the expense. As of September 30, 2021, we had 37 leased properties, six in Medical Practice Management and 31 in Healthcare IT, with remaining terms ranging from less than one year to five years. Our lease terms are determined taking into account lease renewal options, the Company’s anticipated operating plans and leases that are on a month-to-month basis. The Company also has some related party leases – see Note 9.
The components of lease expense were as follows:
