Analysis of commercial lease transactions, Hong Kong
The analysis of comparable transactions and the effect of the value of incentives is only one part of the process of considering the value of a specific property. There is no single correct approach to analysis and no 'right' answer. Methods may vary depending on the circumstances of individual cases and market practices in different areas and sectors. Changing markets can mean that an approach adopted previously may no longer be appropriate. This is particularly so in Hong Kong, which also has its own distinctive characteristics of deal structure and length of leases, which necessitates unique guidance in the form of these notes.
