How French leaseback resale works ?
Process to sell a leaseback in France
We always start with a free valuation of your property based on its characteristics, leaseback agreement, financial strength of the tenant, charges…
This market price enables us to determine with you the selling price and start to market your property thanks to the legal selling service contract called “mandat de vente”. ( Please note that the selling of properties by professionals is regulated in France by the “Loi Hoguet”).
When a purchaser is found we write down the selling contract called “compromis de vente”, signed by the buyer and the seller and then transmitted to the notary to register the selling.
How long does it take to sell a French leaseback ?
If the property is at market price, it generally takes 2 to 3 months to find a buyer and 3 more months to accomplish all the paperwork and for the notary to be able to register the selling.
Commission / fees to sell a leaseback
Selling a leaseback is far more complicated than selling a traditional property. More time is needed to prepare the selling and more time is also needed to explain the scheme to the investor.
Our commission is thus 10% ex Vat of the market price and is paid by the seller upon final signature at the Notary.
Fees paid by the seller
Property Checks fees : a technical inspection is to be carried out on the property by a regulated company, usually costing a few hundred Euros, depending on the size of the property.
Syndic fees : the co-ownership management company (syndic) will charge fees for the paperwork to be done to change owner. The amount depends on syndic companies and varies from 200€ up to 450€.
Is VAT to be repaid
Since 2006, an addendum to the French financial law has establish that the VAT initially saved by the buyer is not to be repaid under the condition that the property is sold as a leaseback with the existing lease. This is the way we sell leaseback properties.
