Investors paid 45.22p per share in the New Listing for this property, and it became available on the Resale market February 16th 2015.
The property is situated in Whitechapel and within walking distance of the City of London, which is London's financial district. We believe that the investment case for residential property investment in Whitechapel is compelling.
Two specific factors underpin the investment case for the area and this specific property.
- The area, which is within walking distance of London’s financial heart, is undergoing a social transformation and looks likely to undergo some of the dramatic gentrification seen in nearby Shoreditch and Hoxton.
- Crossrail station is due to open in Whitechapel in 2018. Crossrail is currently Europe’s largest infrastructure project and represents a major improvement for public transport in London. JLL expect Whitechapel to benefit most from Crossrail driven capital growth over the next 5 years.

The property was offered for sale at auction on 3rd December 2014. However, this is a difficult time of year to engage most buyers and the property failed to sell. Suspecting the vendor was motivated to achieve a sale quickly, we made an offer after the auction below guide price and on the basis that we would exchange contracts before Christmas. The timetable slipped slightly to the New Year but we exchanged on 9th January 2015.
The total rent forecast is £22,800 per annum. For prudence we have factored into our forecasts an annual void rate of 3.8%. After accounting for building service charges payable to the Freeholder for block management, maintenance and insurance of the building, the current Gross Rental Yield is 3.29% and Dividend Yield of 2.13% (fully accounting for fees, purchase costs, works provision and corporate taxation). From April 2016 UK taxpayers are entitled to a £5,000 annual dividend allowance. See our FAQs here for more information.
