The article discusses a report showing that the average capital value across all property in Great Britain declined when a lease of five years or less was signed. Figures are provided which show that the number of five-year leases went up since 2007. It was found that shorter and more flexible leases were not popular with investors looking to secure long-term income. A decline in the value of retail buildings that feature five-year leases is also addressed.
