Sale & Leaseback
Real estate transactions in which an educational institution sells its real estate assets. The educational institution then leases property long term (minimum 10 years) under market conditions.
The institution will have the possibility of maintaining the lease indefinitely, which ensures the continuity of the project, thus maintaining total control over the operation of his company. This combination allows the operator to reuse the capital that had been invested in real estate to continue the growth of the institution.
As illustrated below, a sale & leaseback occurs when the owner of the real estate sells the property to a buyer and simultaneously leases the asset back to the buyer, under a long-term lease agreement.
