Investors paid 145.94p per share in the New Listing for this property, and it became available on the Resale market March 31st 2016.
An opportunity to invest in 8 new-build flats in Greenford, West London’s Borough of Ealing. The flats were secured off-plan and are geared for enhanced returns.
- The investment comprises 8 out of 44 flats in this new-build block, and is geared at 50% loan-to-value (LTV) of the purchase price. Gearing gives enhanced exposure to property price movements, and the potential for amplified returns; though investors must note amplified negative returns if prices fall.
- London’s population continues to grow much faster than it can build new housing, so people are moving out from the centre. Greenford should continue to be attractive to professionals who are looking for more living space for their money.
- Greenford is well connected to central London, Oxford and the Midlands. The area benefits from two train stations, and short bus journey away from Ealing, Shepherd’s Bush (for Westfield London), Wembley, Harrow, Hayes and Heathrow.
- Greenford is a great place for families. The area enjoys generous amounts of green open space. Ravenor Park is the largest of Greenford’s parks and each summer plays host to the Greenford Carnival, an event organised by local people, with children’s entertainment, live music, dance and food.
Our exit strategy is to sell the units individually rather than as a single investment, thereby realising the discount that we have secured from buying in bulk.

The mortgage will be provided by a major high street bank with a two-year fixed interest rate of 3.85%. After this two-year period, the interest rate will switch to a variable rate based on the bank's base rate. At that point, we will assess the situation and either continue with the variable rate or fix the interest rate for an additional period. We have assumed a constant cost of debt and no rental growth in our annual income forecast. Please refer to our blog post on geared property for further details.
The investment comprises 8 flats within a 44 flat residential block - 5 two-bedroom flats and 3 one-bedroom flats. The flats were acquired off-plan. We have set aside a contingency of £3,840 for any minor issues that are identified after purchase. There is also a provision of £20,000 for furnishings.
The total rent forecast for the 8 flats is £133,800 per annum. For prudence, we have factored into our forecasts an annual void rate of 3.8%.
At the forecasted level of rent, Gross Rental Yield would be 4.09% and the forecast Dividend Yield 1.97% (fully accounting for and after mortgage interest payments, purchase costs, furnishings, 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 have not included any growth in rental values in our forecasts - any growth in rent will be incremental to our forecasts.
