Tenants in possession of long term leases upon properties
have a legal interest in these properties. They rent, occupy and use them over
long periods of time. A tenant having a Leasehold Interest in a property may or
may not have a material interest in the value of such a property. In cases
where a lease is for an extended period of time, and when contract rental rates
are lower than market rates, the tenant is said to have a material interest in
the value of the property. Conversely, if the lease is of short duration, say 2
years, and the rent is at market, the tenant will likely have no material
interest in the value of the property. This is in spite of the fact that he or
she has a legal interest in the property. These issues can be complicated to
sort out and the services of an appraiser experienced in such appraisals should
be engaged to perform Leasehold Interest Appraisals.
