  • Description
    The property comprises of a two storey detached building with a multi-pitched slate roof, rendered brick elevations and double-glazed fenestration throughout. The property has been extended with a single storey element to the rear.

    The ground floor is let to The Southern Co-operative Ltd from 14 August 2015 on a new full repairing and insuring 20 year lease (no breaks) at a commencing rent of £80,350 per annum. There are therefore 15 years and approximately 9 months unexpired. The lease is subject to 5 yearly rent reviews in line with RPI with a collar of 1% and cap of 4%.

    Based on RPI data for the last 5 years we predict a rental increase in August 2020 to £92,000 per annum.
    The first floor is let to a private individual on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) Agreement from 23 April 2019 at a current rent of 11,400pa.

    The Southern Co-operative Ltd had a turnover for the year end 27th January 2019 of £450,851,000, with a tangible net worth of £105,504,000. The tenant can therefore be considered of undoubted covenant strength.
