What are the benefits of buying a leaseback property?

Leaseback schemes are a tax incentive to encourage owners to rent their property and create employment so there are plenty of benefits:
  • TVA rebate – the buyer receives a 20% VAT rebate / discount on the gross purchase price
  • Guaranteed rental returns – some management companies give you a guaranteed quarterly or bi-annual rental income which is reduced according to a tariff for the weeks you use it yourself
  • Low purchase price – typically leaseback properties are in larger developments which are competitively priced
  • A trouble-free investment – the management company will organise and fund the maintenance of your property
  • Furnishing and storage - leaseback properties are usually sold fully-furnished with a private storage space for the owners to use while their property is rented
