16 Market Place
Let to Sabri Alaybeyi (t/a Molino Coffee) on a full repairing and insuring lease, for a term of 15 years from 5th September 2023, expiring on 4th September 2038. There is a tenant’s break option on 5th September 2028, subject to six months’ notice.
The passing rent is £25,000 per annum. The lease benefits from 5 yearly upwards only rent reviews to open market rental value. The tenant benefits from a rent free period expiring on 4th March 2024. The vendor will ‘top-up’ the income by way of an appropriate adjustment on the completion sum in order that a purchaser does not suffer an income shortfall.
A rent deposit of £8,250 + VAT is held by the Landlord. This deposit will be released at any time after five years in the event that the tenant can produce audited accounts showing three continuous years when the net profit exceeds the rent by a multiplier of at least 3 times the rent passing.
