Are you a landlord? Here’s how Lease Rental Discounting Can Help You

If you are a landlord and have a real estate property such as a warehouse, commercial space, retail space or a showroom, you earn monthly rentals from that property. If you want a loan on very competitive interest rates, you can apply for Lease Rental Discounting (LRD). Read on to know how can this be possible.

Lease rental discounting helps you get loan against these rentals by availing loan facility at attractive interest rates. The monthly rents received from the tenants are kept as collateral for getting the loan. The bank examines long-term cash flow and provides the loan based on the exact amount and the loan is then payable by the rents promised i.e., the loan is given on the monthly rentals received from the tenants in future on discounted price. Banks deduct time value of money from monthly rentals to be received in future and pay the balance to the lessor if lease rental discounting is availed.

Lease rentals are not secured by the property but by the rental cash flow that the property is expected to generate. Hence, the banks calculate the lease amount against the monthly rentals to be received in the long term. This means that the rent paid by the tenant is treated as the interest returns to the bank. The borrower and the lender sign an agreement along with the tenant that he will pay the rent as debt amount to the bank and not the borrower. Also, in an event of non-payment or default in payments, the bank can auction the property for the recovery of the loan amount. This kind of loan is given generally for a long term such as 10 -15 years and a lock-in period is decided in which the tenant cannot leave the property till the lock-in period is over. An escrow account is maintained where the tenant deposits the monthly rentals and bank treat those rentals as EMI paid.

Mostly the interest rate is little higher in lease rental discounting than any home loan. It ranges from 9% to 12% p.a. with monthly rests. The variation in the interest rate may depend on the loan amount, type of property and the rental revenues. Lease rental discounting is a long-term financing which has got the quantum of loan (min./max.) ranging from minimum of Rs. 10 lacs to maximum of Rs. 50 Cr.
