220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0620 Sale and Leaseback Transactions. The facts of a situation will determine whether a sale and leaseback agreement is a financing arrangement or a true sale. As a general rule, if the property was sold and immediately leased back to the former owner, and under the terms of the agreement the property did not revert to the lessee upon the final lease payment or the lessee did not have the option to purchase the property for a nominal amount at the end of the lease term, the sale would constitute a change in ownership. C 7/11/1980.
