Investors paid 17.29p per share in the New Listing for this property, and it became available on the Resale market July 15th 2015.
We believe that Plumstead, and this maisonette, have a compelling investment case underpinned by three factors:
- The ongoing transformation of Plumstead and surrounding areas, which ought to have a significant impact on long-term prospects for the area.
- The benefit of access to Crossrail stations at Woolwich and Abbey Wood in 2018. The decrease in journey times to central London is expected to have an impact on local GDP, which is a key driver of house prices and rental values.
- Property prices in Plumstead are lower than surrounding areas. As residents in South-East London seek better value, and reduced travel times, Plumstead is well placed to benefit from capital growth.

The Chartered Surveyor’s Report highlights issues, including the need to replace four windows, service the hot water tank and replace an electric heater, over the coming years. From our own inspection, we agree with these recommendations. We have made a provision of £3,500 for these works.
The total rent forecast is £9,900 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, this equates to a Gross Rental Yield of 4.89% and a forecast Dividend Yield of 3.00% (fully accounting for purchase costs, furnishings, remedial cosmetic works, forecast maintenance, annual voids, corporate taxation and all fees). From April 2016 UK taxpayers are entitled to a £5,000 annual dividend allowance. See our FAQs here for more information.
For prudence, we haven’t included any growth in rental values in our forecasts. However, it is worth noting that Savills forecast rental growth for London (excluding ‘prime’ central London markets) of 29.5% over the five years from January 2015.

Note: UK taxpayers are currently entitled to a £5,000 annual dividend allowance. This means that the total income related tax you pay is no greater than if you were to own the property directly. Gross rent and dividends may be lower than estimated. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in future. See FAQs for more information on taxation. The Dividend Yield assumes an investment at the Latest Valuation.
