Product Description


Investors paid 84.31p per share in the New Listing for this property, and it became available on the Resale market November 20th 2015.


Introducing our first ‘higher-yielding’ property. This represents an institutional grade investment opportunity, comprising 42 of the 48 apartments in this Grade II listed converted mill in Gainsborough. A truly compelling investment opportunity:

  • We purchased 42 of the 48 flats in this Sandars Maltings converted mill, plus the Freehold for the entire building, at a discount to its break-up value and geared at 60% loan-to-value (LTV) of the purchase price. Gearing gives enhanced exposure to property price movements, and the potential for amplified returns; though investors must note amplified negative returns if prices fall.
  • By purchasing the entire block at its investment value as opposed to its break-up value, investors benefit from a higher dividend yield than they would achieve by purchasing individual flats. Net income is further enhanced by a favourable mortgage rate relative to the net dividend yield.
  • The property is located in Lincolnshire, in the East Midlands. The well-regarded research team at Savills estimate this region to enjoy a forecast capital growth of 16.5% over the next 5 years (2016: 5%, 2017: 3%, 2018: 3%, 2019: 2.5%, 2020: 2.5%). Gearing allows significant outperformance to this market growth however investors should note that gearing amplifies losses if prices fall.
