Potential exists to exploit the development potential in the future.
Based on the rental devaluation agreed between the vendor and the tenant, £10,281 of the total rent is attributable to the upper parts and the remainder is attributable to the ground and basement.
Therefore, based on the 8.0% purchase yield, this apportions £650,000 to the bank on ground and basement, leaving £120,000 for the upper parts which reflects only £48 per sq ft / £528 per sq metre.
Our research suggests that one- and two-bedroom flats in this location are worth in the order of £140,000 each / £280 per sq ft / £3,012 per sq m. We propose that there is the potential to create 4 flats on the upper parts, subject to planning permission. This would provide a potential future exit value from the upper parts in the order of £560,000.
