"Life Lease", strictly as a financial investment, works for the tenant
by reducing the tenant's monthly operating costs.
It may be compared to the way a down payment works for a home owner when
purchasing a house. The greater the
down payment, the less the capital borrowed by way of a mortgage, therefore, the
less the monthly debt service or mortgage payment.
