There are many advantages of renting out a property to a bank like long-term lease, lucrative rents, etc. 

Knowing professional tips on how to rent out a property to a bank will make the process a cakewalk and help you earn a good income.  

How to rent out a commercial property to a bank

Banks have specific prerequisites to rent a property for a bank branch or ATM. Here are some of them 

  1. The property size should be suitable for the bank requirements. Every bank has a different space requirement. The official website of the bank will contain specific information about the size requirements for the bank branch and ATM.
  2. The property should be located in preferably a commercial complex or a mixed-use complex.
  3. The property should be easily accessible and have good visibility. 
  4. The property should be free from any legal feud.
  5. There should not be any pending dues for the property.
  6. All the property papers such as property title, allotment letter, building plan approvals, tax receipts, encumbrance certificate, etc. should be available for verification. 
  7. The property should have all the required permission from the municipal authorities. 

If your property has all the prerequisites required, you can approach the bank for renting out the property. 

You have to perform some research to gather information about prospective banks that you can rent out.

Here are some ways to gather information and reach out to your prospective renters. 

Look for Ads or tenders

The first step in the process is to look for the ads posted by banks.

Usually, banks post ads for vacant land or buildings for bank branches and ATMs. The advertisements or tender notices contain all the detailed information about the requirements of the bank and the process to be followed to submit the application.

You have to simply follow the process and give an application to the bank authorities. 

Search the bank’s official website

You can also visit the official websites of different banks to know whether they are on the lookout for vacant land or property.

For example, if you are interested in renting your property to IDFC bank, you have to visit their official website and search if they have any notices or ads for vacant properties in your area.

If you find an ad or notice, you can make an application by filling in the necessary details. 

Call the bank’s customer service

Almost every bank has a customer service number. You can call the customer service number of your preferred banks and know the eligibility criteria and the requirements to rent out your property to the bank.

The customer service representative will walk you through the process and specific requirements of the branch. 

Perform market research

Alternatively, you can enquire in the nearby bank branches about their intention to open new branches.

You can also research which banks do not have their branches within a 2 km radius of your area and contact those branches with a good offer to open a branch in your locality. 

Post classifieds

Post classified ads in local newspapers or online real estate portals. Most online real estate portals charge a small fee to post property ads.

You must mention the specifications such as the address of the property, the area available, which floor it is located, amenities in the building, parking facilities, etc., and your contact details such as name, address, phone number,  email id, etc.

The bank authorities will go through the listing and call you for further discussions. 

How to rent your residential property to a bank 

Banks are also looking to rent residential properties to provide accommodation to their employees. Most banks usually prefer long-term leases for this purpose.

If you have a residential property, you can approach the nearest branch office of the bank and provide the necessary details.

If the bank finds your property fit for accommodation, they will sign a lease with the terms and conditions agreed by both parties. 

How to Rent your property to a bank ATM

If you have a small space or land, renting it out for a bank ATM is a good option. Renting out for bank ATMs is a safe bet as the banks often take premises on long-term leases and there are no rent defaults by banks. 

Banks need an area between 50 to 100 square feet to set up ATMs. The property should preferably be on the ground floor and must have good visibility. Here is a step-by-step process of how to rent out your premises to a bank ATM. 

  • File an application for ATM installation by providing details such as the complete address, locality, nearby landmarks, space availability, etc. 
  • The bank will go through the proposal and study the feasibility of setting up an ATM in the area depending on the demand and expected footfalls. 
  • If the bank deems it possible to set up an ATM, you will be asked to submit further details and property papers. 
  • Once all the details are provided, the bank will verify them and enter into a lease agreement with you. 

ATM rent per month

The rent offered by banks for ATMs depends on a variety of factors such as the prevailing market rate in the area, valuation of the property, location of the property, average footfalls in a day, etc.

The rent usually ranges between Rs. 60 per square foot to Rs.200 per square foot. 

Procedures and Process to rent out your property to a bank  ATM
