Iceland, Hornchurch, Greater London

Iceland, Hornchurch 1

Freehold Blue-Chip lock-up Supermarket with parking

12 years

£12,000 p.a.

Guide: £1.95M + (6.4%) – THIS WAS SOLD PRIOR ON 20/11/2017!

Auction: Allsop, 5th December

Our Comment: For a high net-worth or even overseas investor. Solid long-term investment in a strong London location, financeable too.

Boots, WH Smith & Specsavers, Cosham


Freehold Blue-Chip Parade Investment with Uppers

Units let for 7, 3 and 4 years respectively

£91,650 p.a.

Guide: £1.25M + (7.3%)

Auction: Allsop, 5th December

Our Comment: For a sophisticated investor looking for an investment with medium-term asset-management or even development potential. As the leases expire, they can be renewed but possibly without the upper floors which could have residential conversion potential.

Azzurri Restaurants, Orpington, Greater London

Azzurri, Orpington

Freehold Blue-Chip Restaurant with Uppers

20 years

£60,000 p.a.

Guide: £950,000 (6.3%)

Auction: Allsop, 5th December

Our Comment: For an investor. Whole building in an affluent town with very long income. Whilst the property has been sublet we would expect the London High Street location to outweigh this fact.

McColl’s & Flat, Liverpool

McColls, Liverpool

Freehold Blue-Chip Retail & Residential Investment

13.5 years

£29,810 p.a. (rising to £32,913 in 2021 and £36,338 in 2026)

Guide: £435,000+ (6.9%) – THIS WAS SOLD PRIOR ON 29/11/2017!

Auction: Allsop, 5th December

Our Comment: For an investor. Solid long-term investment, financeable too given the 6 week completion. Some residential exposure too which is not subject to residential property taxes. Expecting this to sell a fair amount above guide.

Betfred & Flat, Bishop Auckland

Betfred, Bishop Auckland

Freehold Betting Shop & Flat

2 years

£37,500 p.a.

Guide: £200,000 + (18.8%)

Auction: Allsop, 5th December

Our Comment: For an experienced, portfolio investor. The huge initial yield on this property will likely reduce on lease expiry, however by that time over 30% of the overall investment will have been recouped. A good opportunity to earn some yield on a relatively small lot.

Restaurant & 4 Flats (2 with Planning), Lavender Hill, Greater London

Restaurant & Flats, Lavender Hill

Freehold Restaurant with 4 Flats Above

17 years for the Restaurant; Flats on ASTs

£102,179 p.a.

Guide: £1,950,000 + (5.2%)

Auction: Acuitus, 7th December

Our Comment: For a high-net worth investor who is open / capable of exploiting the short-term development opportunity to further boost the income on this property. May also appeal to overseas investors seeking wealth preservation, given the location and strong residential bias of this property.
