Product Description


Investors paid 21.29p per share in the New Listing for this property, and it became available on the Resale market June 5th 2015.


This is an unusual transaction, and plays to our collective strength as a cash buyer – with the added benefit of deep market knowledge.

  • It’s a leasehold property where the building’s freeholder (an investor) is going through bankruptcy proceedings. The resolution is ultimately a simple one: the freehold title will likely be sold by the administrator, who is acting on behalf of a bank.
  • However, administrative proceedings involving a bank can be drawn out and take several years. In the meantime, no one can secure a mortgage to buy any of the leasehold properties in that block.
  • Owing principally to this, we were able to negotiate a 20% discount relative to the RICS certified Vacant Possession value – paying £204,540 instead of £255,000. We expect investors to later benefit from the uplift in value, in addition to an enhanced rental yield provided by the capital discount.
  • The property is set within an attractive area of the South East and inside London’s M25.
