If it is decided that it is necessary to re-locate the following steps are undertaken:
We at Shalan Properties are well equipped to partner the Seller in assisting in the marketing of the Seller’s property.

In some cases a tenant may prefer not to re-locate but are not sure or is not happy with the rental or other issue they may have with the landlord and Shalan Properties can assist in this regard by representing the tenant in engaging with the landlord to negotiate a more market related rental or obtaining a tenant installation allowance to re-furbish the tenant’s offices etc.
This is often a difficult balancing act as it can well be landlords that Shalan Properties has to try to retain a good relationship going forward but at the same time the tenant is actually our client in this case who will be paying an agreed fee for the service. Shalan Properties has a good relationship with the landlords built up over the 24 years that we have been in the business so we are confident that we can arrive at a win-win solution.

Sale and Leaseback
A sale and leaseback is an agreement where a seller leases back the property from the purchaser. In a leaseback arrangement, the details of the arrangement, such as the lease payments and lease duration, are made immediately after the sale of the asset. Essentially, the seller of the property becomes the lessee and the purchaser becomes the lessor.
How Leasebacks Work
Most often, a company needs capital to grow. Companies acquire capital by either debt or equity financing or both. Debt must be paid back and goes on the company balance sheet as a debt. Equity does not need to be paid back, but it comes at the cost of ownership. A leaseback allows this to happen.
Leaseback deals can also provide the seller with additional tax deductions. The lessor benefits in that it receives a guaranteed lease with stable payments for a specified period of time.
Shalan Properties would assist in ascertaining a market related lease rental for the type of property and the area it is located in and determine a sale price that provides an attractive yield for a prospective investor.
A sale agreement and lease agreement would then be drawn up and negotiated between the two parties.
