STARTUP ON RENTAL OR LEASED BUILDINGS

If your strategy is to startup in a rented or leased building as a way to mitigate risk while getting more experience, implications (mostly associated with environmental assets) have to be considered.

 Consulting will also be a valuable support on this matter.

Items to be checked during a regular evaluation for rental or leasing

  • Ownership regularity (irregularities, pendency’s and tax status)
  • Authorized soil usage (City and environmental authorities, considering present and future conditions)
  • Environmental asset as received
  • City operation certification
  • Firefighters project and certification
  • Environmental preliminary / installation and operation license
  • Environmental impact on neighborhood (and vice versa)

By the end of the leasing operation (when you will become the owner), it is mandatory to replace the items above by Land Pre Purchase Evaluation (LPPE).

PROPERTY EVALUATION

Land pre-purchase evaluation is an essential step to conciliate the expectations of involved parties about a land transaction

When considering the Land Pre-Purchase Evaluation (LPPE) or a property including a building, is preferable to begin early by specifying in the intention letter or pre-purchase agreement, the conditions under which the buyer can modify the terms or even cancel the transaction if discrepancies are revealed as a result of the LPPE.

To avoid a conflict of interest, is highly recommended that the buyer select an independent consultancy that has not undertaken its regular land purchasing process, or had any other pre-existing relationship with the seller. The reason is because a local acting independent consultancy is better placed to provide a neutral and realistic report.

It is also important that the consultancy is able to demonstrate consistent experience with legal and environmental issues associated to regular land ownership in Brazil.

LPPE report will identify any discrepancies issues to both buyer and seller, to themselves agree regarding corrective actions.

Items to be checked during a regular LPPE:
