Property sales

The Bank is continuing the sale of properties vacated following the reorganization of its branch network.

The properties for sale are mainly bank buildings in the historic centre of the towns where the branches have been closed down. Some income-generating properties located nearby are also for sale. These are very prestigious properties, in many cases of great historic and artistic interest, an important part of the urban environment and a point of reference for the local community.

When disposing of property, the Bank evaluates expressions of interest received directly or in response to published notices of sale. The Bank selects purchasers in accordance with the standards and appraised values defined in consultation with independent experts as well as based on information obtained on the potential buyer.

The Bank also considers expressions of interest in renting its properties or leasing them without charge.

The Bank does not use the services of agents to sell its properties. Non-exclusive mandates may be given to agents only for sales or rentals of a small number of individual residential units.
