Real Estate Leasing

Having undergone significant development under founding partner Pierre Rochelois, the Real Estate Lease department is now a significant hub of Practice activities, and is now a recognised and expert stakeholder in this area.

A financing technique directly backed by the real estate asset concerned, the Real Estate Lease is a tool to finance a company’s long-term real estate projects while preserving its cash flow.

For many years, the Practice has put its in-depth knowledge of real estate and tax matters at the service of important credit-lenders in the area, as well as lessees wishing to obtain advice and expertise in this often little-known area.

Advice and support is provided at all stages of the life of the lease contract, from its signature to its termination by the exercise of option, but also through all acts likely to punctuate the long life of the contract, such as assignments or amendments in order to always adapt to the requests and needs of the parties.

For more than 30 years, our team, now led by three partners, Anne Béchu, Philippe Leroy-Vivien and Bénédicte Lecarpentier, with 20 notaries and colleagues, has thus gained recognised experience and efficiency in the area and adapted to all types of files and volumes ranging from the now potentially “rechargeable” Lease Credit, to the user or investor with the financing of complex buildings or portfolios.

Alongside the Real Estate Lease, our team also supports financial institutions and borrowers in their mortgage financing projects.
