The “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.
