The Leaseback structure is a very popular way of buying property in France. On new build properties purchasers benefit from a government-backed VAT-refund incentive and on specially sourced resales it is possible to procure an excellent property in a wonderful location at a great price. The property is leased back to a management company who look after the rental and management of your property, with the investor benefiting from guaranteed annual rental returns and a hands-off investment that can be used for your own holidays in addition to income, or simply as a pure investment.
