I’ve been familiar with leasing for a long time, and have often used it to finance equipment. I’ve also used real estate leasing on three occasions, for financial, legal and fiscal reasons.
On large‑scale real estate projects, you don’t want to tie up too much of your own capital, or choose a finance solution that has a longer repayment period than a conventional loan. So usually, you need to find external financial partners. Leasing is a very effective solution because you can keep your capital reserve intact, but also amortise your real estate investment more quickly. There’s also the added benefit of being able to exercise your lease option midway through the contract. The legal conditions governing this type of contract make it easier to sell the asset on to a third party, which offers great flexibility when managing a business.
