Sale-leaseback(redirected from Sale-Leasebacks)
Also found in: Dictionary.
In a sale-leaseback arrangement -- also known as a leaseback -- an owner sells his or her property, and then immediately leases it back from the buyer as part of the same transaction.
This way, the seller gets the profits from the sale while keeping possession and use of the property, while the buyer is assured immediate long-term income on the property.
Sale-leaseback transactions are most commonly used in commercial real estate, but can also apply to commercial vehicles and other types of property.
