In a sale-leaseback, you agree to sell your property to a commercial real estate investor and lease it back for a set period of time, usually at least ten years. While you occupy the building, you pay rent and operating expenses under the triple net structure. This gives you control over the building. When the lease expires, you have options to renew at pre-negotiated terms, letting you stay longer. Or, if you’re done leasing the property, you can walk away and leave it with the commercial real estate investor.
