Ground Rents

 Harco Assets Group believes commercial ground rents are a real opportunity for the market. Our current landmark investors are leading the way with a number of initiatives which have been developed to assist and help vendors  to generate and release additional value from their freehold land & property.

Benefits of Commercial Ground Rents

Generate and Release Additional Equity Value by Restructuring The Title

Release Funds While Retaining Long Term Ownership 

Can be Used to Fund Purchases and Reduce Cash Input

Alternative to External Debt Such as Banks or Private Equity

It’s a straight forward concept very much like a form of sale and leaseback.
The difference, however, is the lease is very long and the rent is low in comparison to open market rent.


The property owner retains ownership of the property or asset on a long lease and is responsible for the ground rent payment, all other income generated is retained by the property owner. As ground rent is a secure and robust income stream, the price paid for it will be much stronger than the overall asset would typically attract.

The split into freehold and long leasehold creates an uplift in the overall value of the site and therefore a gain to the owner.
