Explore the option of selling your GP surgery to an investor and leasing it back from them
Sale and leaseback enables a GP practice to sell the property to an investor, but continue to work from the premises whilst paying rent to that investor, who will become the landlord.
There are a number of benefits of the sale and leaseback model, offering lower commitment and increased flexibility:
- Provision to release equity from your practice
- Support succession planning
- Eliminate some barriers to recruitment
- Exemption from stamp duty land tax (assuming all owners become tenants)
