What is a leaseback property?

Leaseback properties, otherwise known as ‘tourist residences’, have been a popular way to invest in French property for more than 40 years. A leaseback property is a property that is owned freehold just like any other, except it is then ‘leased back’ to a management company for a minimum period of 9 years.Owners benefit from a government-backed VAT-refund incentive designed to encourage investment in tourist residences, guaranteed annual returns from their fully managed and maintained property and relatively low buying costs. As the property will be used to cater for tourism demand in its location, a leaseback property is sold fully furnished, usually with a parking space and private storage for the owners.

Main features
