We offer competitive rates for the lease of property for all local and state government subdivisions, including sanitation districts, school districts, fire and police departments, city or county agencies, and more. The most significant obstacle faced by Government Agencies in acquiring needed property is meeting their fiscal year budgetary requirements. Often, there are not enough funds budgeted for the purchase of property. Teaming with RNO Financial/CNG Leasing to offer leasing options to your vendors will increase.

Arranging the lease

Usually, the Government Agency has identified its need for property and has either chosen a vendor or has requested proposals from several suppliers. We work with you and your vendors who respond to Requests for Proposal by providing lease rates and assistance with bid preparation. Contact us for assistance and information.

Leasing options

Lease to Own Plan (LTOP) - With an LTOP, the Federal Agency makes regular payments for their term of the lease. At the end of the lease term, the agency owns the property. Lease With Option to Purchase (LWOP) - Under an LWOP, the agency makes regular payments for the term of the lease and has the option to purchase the property at the end of the lease term for a specified price. If the agency chooses not to exercise its option to purchase, the property is returned to the leasing company. Straight Lease or Rental - With a straight lease or rental, the agency makes regular payments for the term of the lease. At the end of the lease term, the agency either renews the lease for an additional term or returns the property to the leasing company.

Why municipal agencies lease

Emergencies - Municipal Agencies often have non-budgeted immediate needs and are without the surplus funds to acquire them. Since they cannot be obligated long-term without an election, leasing the property is the only alternative. The Municipal Lease contains a non-appropriation clause that allows the municipality to enter into a lease without committing future funds. Lengthy Budget Process - Unless capital expenditures are already in the budget, it could take months or years to acquire property that is needed today. However, lease payments are appropriated from the operating budget, rather than the capital budget, and are often made from excess or emergency funds already available. Voter Approval Not Required - A general election is usually required to commit a municipality to long-term bond financing (i.e. obligates the municipality beyond the end of the current fiscal year). On occasion, unpopular issues (i.e. the location of a jail facility) are turned down although they are desperately needed. When necessary, lease financing provides an option to proceed without long-term obligation, and without voter approval (because the Municipal Lease may be terminated if funds are not appropriated). Too Small for Bonds - Low interest bond financing is usually not available for small projects under $1 million. Government Leasing, LLC leases property costing as low as $5,000.00 with no maximum dollar amount. Length of lease terms are generally to five years or longer, depending upon the useful life of the property. Bonds Cost More - After adding the soft costs of bonds, such as labor, advertising, printing, etc., lease financing is less expensive and much less time consuming. $1 Buyout - In a Municipal Lease, the lessee usually purchases and takes title to the property. The financing is a full payout contract with a $1 buyout at the end of the lease term.
