From London’s prestigious Barons Court in West Kensington, we’re pleased to bring you a property of rare distinction.

A beautiful building within walking distance of the famous tennis courts of The Queen’s Club. View a short video from our Director of Property on why this is a great investment.
- The investment comprises 5 flats in Jubilee Mansions plus a 50% share of the Freehold interest of the entire building 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.
- This Jubilee Mansions block is exceptionally well located in the prestigious area of West Kensington. The property is just 8 minutes walking distance to Barons Court and only 9 minutes walk to West Kensington Underground Stations.
- West Kensington is a very well established area surrounded by prestigious neighbourhoods such as Fulham, Chelsea and Hammersmith. Furthermore, the area is set to benefit from ongoing redevelopment plans approved by the Mayor of London. West Kensington is an attractive area to live in – with a vibrant community, international schools, and a diverse population – creating a unique character for the neighbourhood.

Property Partner does not provide advice and nothing in this Overview should be construed as investment or tax advice. The information which appears in this Overview is for general information purposes only and does not constitute specific advice.
The mortgage is provided by a major high street bank and has a two-year fixed interest rate of 3.8%. 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.
This investment comprises 5 flats (1 studio, 2 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom flats) plus a 50% share of the Freehold interest of the entire building.
The flats were acquired in good condition and the Chartered Surveyor's report identifies no material issues. We have made a provision of £3,000 for any remedial works that further testing reveals. There is also a provision of £6,000 for furnishings.
The total rent forecast for the 5 flats is £102,432 per annum. The number of vacant flats may vary month to month. For prudence we have factored into our forecasts an annual void rate of 3.8% and have not included any growth in rental values.
At the current level of rent, Gross Rental Yield would be 3.94% and the forecast Dividend Yield 1.87% (fully accounting for and after mortgage interest payments, 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.

This investment comprises 5 purpose built flats - 1 studio (flat 1), 2 one-bedroom (flats 3 and 10) and 2 two-bedroom (flat 4 and 6). Flat 4 and flat 6 also have the benefit of a balcony.
