    have been a long time follower of government leases those that is guaranteed x years of lease with optional y years.

    Wondering if anyone here has any experience/comments on this sorts of investments.

    Because the leases are signed and agreed upon, will the lenders take into consideration of the rental income and assess more favourably?

    A lot of these properties are on auction, I wonder how they all end up ie most likely end up paying a premium?guess I should visit these auctions some day.

    I say yay at the right price. I would think govt lease often is at a lower yield as you get the benefit of a very reliable tenant.
