We can help your business grow through our property services
The UK's market leader in sale & leaseback transactions
ARE YOU WONDERING HOW TO RAISE FINANCES FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
We provide sale and leaseback services to UK businesses looking to release cash tied up in property. We also purchase property for expanding businesses to move into. This means business owners can use their working capital for their core business, instead of a deposit for a mortgage.
"A sale and leaseback was the perfect solution to help us service two large new contracts and expand the business."
What is a sale & leaseback contract?
A sale and leaseback transaction is where a business sells its commercial property to generate a substantial cash injection, whilst entering into a long-term secure lease. The tenant company retains complete operational control over the property, as if it were the owner. Our flexible approach can accommodate businesses looking to buy back in the future.
Sale & leaseback vs Commercial mortgage
A sale and leaseback provides proceeds up to 100% of the appraised value of the property, versus 60-70% LTV lending from a mortgage company.
Can I buy the property back in the future?
Yes, we structure each sale and leaseback transaction around our clients needs/requirements. If you would like to buy back in the future this can be pre-agreed (timeframe and price) before the sale and leaseback transaction takes place.
What are the advantages of a sale and leaseback contract?
A Sale and Leaseback agreement is an easy way to raise finances for your business. It releases capital that is tied up in commercial real estate without taking on any additional debt. A Sale and Leaseback contract is fully tax deductible and is cost-effective alternative to a property mortgage and Commercial leases also leave you debt-free and with no asset-risk allowing you to use the capital gain on solely growing your business.
Why should companies choose sale & leaseback?
Sale & Leaseback transactions improve liquidity by releasing capital which is tied-up in premises. The capital can be reinvested into the core business to drive the business forward and generate additional revenue.
Why shouldn't I buy my premises?
Purchasing business premises can be expensive, especially due to the deposit required, typically 30%. Mortgage applications can also be a lengthy process, not ideal if timing is a concern. Instead, funds can be used to invest in the core business if a sale and leaseback transaction is utilised.
Are there upfront costs involved?
We do not charge any upfront fees for our services. We can provide a free no obligatory offer within 48 hours.
