UK City Investments combined their residential and commercial property investment skills to acquire this stunning character property on Great George Street for a retained client. The building consists of 9 x tenanted 1 and 2 bedroom apartments with 4 x retail units on the ground floor and off street parking to the rear.

The deal was done off market and acquired from West Register (RBS) in late 2014.
Quay One - Leeds

Quay One, Leeds 

15 tenanted properties sold on behalf of a developer client. The majority of the sales were to investors with a small number sold to owner occupiers. Values from £75,000- £150,000 were achieved and all sales were completed within a 12 month period during 2013. We also worked closely with the letting agent and block management agent to enhance the value of the building. We advised the lettings agent on where rents could be increased, improving the tenant calibre and in return enhancing our client’s gross yield. We also project managed the refurbishment of several units on completion of sales, enabling our clients to immediately let the properties to new tenants at increased levels of rent.

These properties were being sold as a part of a managed exit from the development by Welbeck land and our investors were able to purchase 10 units at prices which represent a discount from the current market value of 15-20% with an average gross yield of 8.5%. Our clients were especially pleased to acquire these properties both furnished and tenanted on completion
