This is an exceptional investment opportunity as the village of Tignes Les Boisses has and will undergo massive changes in the years to come. The first part of these changes has been the creation of a new road linking the dam to Tignes Le Lac and Tignes Val Claret which avoids the centre of Tignes Les Boisses. The traffic that used to drive through this village has now virtually stopped. The former road will very probably be replaced by a green slope in the winter and a large area for beginners will be created in the heart of the village. The old 2 seater chairlift that takes skiers from Tignes Les Boisses to the Marais area en route to the Aiguille Percee has been replaced by a brand new gondola costing 6 million euros.

Outright purchase or leaseback?

 

Whilst outright purchase is pretty simple and similar to buying almost any second home, the leaseback formula is not as well known (and is totally different from timeshares).

 

With most owners only using their Alpine properties for just a few weeks each year and the demand for accommodation ever increasing, the French government introduced a scheme to entice owners of new properties into renting them out when not in use, and allowing the recuperation of the French VAT (currently 19,6%).

 

The scheme known as ‘Residence de Tourisme’ in France, or Leaseback has been running for over 25 years and has proven to be very popular among purchasers of holiday homes. Our property partner has already completed many Leaseback Residences in the French Alps.

 

The residences are built to the highest standards and most of them are managed by our partner’s property management subsidiary which handles maintenance, letting and management for owners, providing a seamless after-sales service at a consistent high standard.

 

If you think that you would only be using your property for 4-6 weeks each year, Leaseback may prove the ideal option for you as you won’t have to worry about maintenance, about finding guests to rent it to, about finding cleaners and caretakers and your apartment will always be ready for you for when you decide to use it so that you can enjoy it as a holidaymaker without having to worry about anything.

 

The purchaser buys the freehold of a new property (within designated projects only, the "Residence de Tourisme") and then leases it back to the management company for an 11-year term. In order for someone to enter into such an agreement there has to be an incentive. This is offered in three distinct forms depending on the chosen leaseback purchase option.
