Sale & Leaseback - sale your property and sign a long term lease agreement
Sale & Leaseback is a transaction in which the owner of the company, who is also the owner of the property in which he operates, sells the property and at the same time signs a long-term lease agreement with the new property owner to continue his own business. Sale & Leaseback has proven to be a powerful tool for unlocking the capital which can be used for:
- Investing in the core business, e.g. business expansion, inventory, or debt payment;
- New investment opportunities that are not closely related to the core business, but will provide future income even in times of crisis.
Our owner-occupied clients are increasingly interested in selling their property and lease it back on favorable, flexible long-terms leases. Our Capital Markets team are experts in these types of transactions, and they have completed a great number of sale and leaseback transactions across every asset class. Delivering premium results for sale and leaseback transactions requires a specialist skill-set beyond traditional investment sales experience. We know how to strike the balance between protecting our clients’ long-term interests while maximising the value of the asset.

Throughout the process of an acquisition and disposal, we partner closely with our valuation and appraisal experts to ensure an accurate valuation that reflects a solid understanding of the property and the broader market dynamics. Whether you require a single asset valuation, a comprehensive portfolio valuation, a lease vs. buy analysis or arbitration and consulting, our team of experts will deliver the insights you need through clear, concise and timely reporting.
