2 years

£27,360 p.a.

Guide: £275,000+ (10.0%)

Auction: Allsop, 17th October

Our Comment: Good for a portfolio investor. High initial yield with good re-letting potential if tenant vacates given unit size and potential to split it into two.



Europcar, Liverpool

£34,000 p.a.

Guide: £540,000+ (6.3%)

£14,500 p.a.

Reserve below: £280,000 (5.2%)

Auction: Barnett Ross, 25th October

Our Comment: For an investor. Nice small lot in an affluent town. Low yield is due to very low rent. Secure long-term investment.

Northwood ClinicFreehold whole building

Lessee holding over

£12,000 p.a.

Reserve below: £350,000 (3.4%)

Auction: Barnett Ross, 25th October

Our Comment: For a local investor / developer or occupier. The unit is well under-rented (ERV = £30k p.a.) so either renw lease at raised rent, vacate tenant altogether or negotiate to take back the flat and obtain planning to separate its access.
