Build To Suit:
The point of a build to suit is to develop a commercial property that meets the specifications of a tenant. Meaning, the design phase of the build to suit process is a collaborative approach between the tenant, consultants and the commercial developer.
Typically, a tenant will have maximum to significant input on the design of the property in order to meet company/corporate standards.
However, the developer will play a vital role in building design, as the developer has a fundamental interest in the project, as well as expertise and understanding of the specific site and municipal requirements.
One important consideration of design is market standards. If the building is not “market standard,” but is instead vastly unique to a tenant’s specialized design, the building can be less attractive to investors and future users.
Sale & Leaseback:
Sale and Leaseback is a simple financial transaction which allows a person to lease an asset to himself after selling it.

One usually makes a leaseback transaction for high value fixed assets such as real estate and goods like airplanes and trains. Sale and leaseback is shortly called as leaseback.
A company usually enters a leaseback transaction for accounting and taxation purposes. For example, a company may transfer its asset to the holding company but still will be able to use it. Also, transferring to holding company will allow the parent company to track the assets’ worth and profitability. Another example is, that in case of financial distress or when a company needs money for some purpose, instead of getting a loan or raising money from outside, a company can sell the asset. The buyer of the asset is someone who is only interested in a securing a long term investment and will lease the asset back to the company. This way the company gets the cash influx and will still be able to use the asset.
