Investors paid 35.37p per share in the New Listing for this property, and it became available on the Resale market December 23rd 2015.
Our first purchase in Acton, a two-bedroom top floor flat in an attractive red brick block. The area already benefits from an exceptional array of transport links and is only set to improve with the addition of Crossrail and potentially HS2.
We believe that Acton and this property have a compelling investment case, underpinned by three factors:
- Crossrail will start running from Acton Main Line station in 2019. JLL forecasts property price growth of +48% between the end of 2014 and 2020 for properties within 750m of Acton Main Line station. Our property is just 530m from the station.
- Acton is extremely well connected being on the Central, Piccadilly and District Underground lines, as well as London Overground and National Rail. It is also close to the A40, which gives access to central London, Oxford and the Midlands. This is in addition to the fact that the area will soon be a Crossrail location and, potentially, home to an HS2 terminal if plans are agreed.
- Acton benefits from its proximity to local amenities, including Westfield London (one of Europe’s largest shopping centres), Imperial College and a Hammersmith Hospital, which is a major employment hub in the area.

The flat was acquired vacant and recently refurbished. The Chartered Surveyor’s report identifies no material issues. We have made a precautionary provision of £3,000 for tests that are required and any remedial works that the testing reveals, as well as a £5,000 contingency for window replacement. There is also a provision of £1,200 for furnishings.
The total rent forecast is £16,200 per annum. 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 4.14% and the Forecast Dividend Yield 2.46% (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.
We haven't included any growth in rental values in our forecasts, which is simply a precaution. However, it is worth noting that JLL forecasts rental growth of +35% through to 2020, for the area around Acton Main Line station.

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.
