Real estate leasing is a meaningful institutional addition to traditional sole ownership with regard to maintaining and operating real estate for commercial purposes. 

Experience shows that this real estate institution is preferred by lessors, who have no affinity to real estate per se, and who see real estate as a pure operations and production means similar to a leased fleet of vehicles. 

Special attention must be paid to the future changes in the legal, commercial and financial conditions related to this obligatory, non-legally regulated mostly long-term permanent debt condition.

A certain typing of real estate leasing agreements exists even if each leasing company “maintains” its own agreement boilerplate.
