Portfolio Services

As the largest global provider of Lease Administration, responsible for over 150,000 leases annually, we create value through portfolio analytics, process implementation, desktop audits, savings initiatives, compliance, systems knowledge, and portfolio and asset-level reporting.



The advantages of effective lease administration are easy to underestimate. As your business grows and evolves, keeping track of rent payments, critical dates, negotiation opportunities and accounting compliance can represent a sizeable drain on time and resources – resulting in hidden inefficiencies and unrealized savings.

The time and depth of expertise required to address this can be prohibitive. Outsourcing the management of your lease obligations to CBRE’s dedicated Portfolio Services team allows us to identify opportunities, uncover savings, avoid risk and manage landlord and sub-tenant interactions on your behalf – leaving your organization free to focus on core business objectives.

Typically delivering savings of around 20% to our clients, CBRE has identified and recovered more than $58 million for our corporate occupiers by mitigating the risk of missing key dates, while ensuring the full capture of rent payments for all lease action obligations.
