What we look for.
We invest in retail or office properties. A residential element is acceptable as long as it is not the main driver of the investment. We are currently looking for Central London properties in good locations either already established or with good mid to long term potential.
The properties we look for are ideally at least partly occupied by a good quality covenant; alternatively, we develop new properties on the basis of previous agreements with a strong commercial partner who will then occupy the premises. In either case, we appreciate the chance of long term capital improvement through asset management and contract re-gearing.
Completely vacant properties can be considered if they have an attractive low capital value and excellent location.
Properties that we may be interested in are: food convenience store (up to 6,000 sqf) let to primary market operators with good capital value; food stores (lot size between 6,000 sft and 12,000 sqf) let to primary market operators with good capital value; office buildings with or without a retail or a residential element at least partially rented and in a good location; high street stores or restaurants as long as part of a multiple chain.
Virtual freehold or freehold only.
We are normally a cash buyer and consequently we are able to complete very rapidly.
We have a team of legal and tax advisors, surveyors and property managers in the markets where we operate that can support us in the acquisition process.
