A significant percentage of signed deals under the private finance initiative (PFI) have involved property in one way or another. PFI projects that involve property provision as a core part of the service are not all identical. Property PFI can involve a wide range of types of transactions – from single site accommodation projects (such as the HM Treasury project), through to estates deals (such as DSS PRIME), to projects that involve the acquisition of land by the bidder as a means for it to deliver the relevant service (such as the Inner London Barracks project).Property PFI differs from other financing structures secured on property.
