Increasingly corporate real estate occupiers are realising capital tied up in their real estate assets by divesting of freehold interests and leasing their properties back on favourable, long terms leases.

A sale and leaseback provides the corporate occupier with an alternative revenue raising opportunity for investment in business expansion, new plant and equipment, research and development, debt reduction and financial restructuring. The competitiveness of the current investment market usually enables a corporate owner occupier to extract a sum well in excess of the asset’s book value.
