For real estate, leasing companies offer the following leasing variations (with their procedural elements):

  • capital goods leasing = leasing for commercial purposes and for creating operational capacity  
  • real estate leasing for the commercial use of the leasing property
  • application cases
    • office and administration buildings
    • production and commercial facilities
    • hotel and restaurant real estate
    • warehouses and shopping centres
    • parking garages
    • sports and tourism infrastructure
    • public and government buildings

real estate leasing and capital leasing

  • capital leasing = leasing for the medium and long-term paid usage and right to use transfer of real property capital goods
  • operations leasing = leasing with short-term primary contract terms, although this type of leasing tends to move in the direction of commercial site rentals, and for this reason, it is not offered by real estate leasing companies; conceivable area of application: interim use of industrial sites
