  • Competitive price psf on acquisition and bid price still represents day 1 price arbitrage given motivated vendor. On an overall asset value, limited number of 2 bedroom apartments with potential value add that are not ex-council properties at this price point.
  • Forecast 24 month hold period assumed to carry out prospective 3rd bedroom creation and sale. Forecast works conservatively estimated at £2.5k.
  • Tenants in situ paying £423pw until September after which single AST expected with 3 sharing professionals paying £550pw. Expected without agency cost if self-advertised and managed. September 2017 rent expected to generated 8.3% ROE.
  • Debt assumed at 75% LTV and 3% p.a. interest rate ; dependent on availability. Seek independent valuation on rental to overlook existing rental from tenants in situ.
  • Assume sale at £700k (sub £1k psf at £955psf) as a 3-bedroom split level flat, which is competitive in today’s values given the location for both owner occupiers as well as BTL investors (4.3% exit yield). No earlier refinancing assumed given expected early repayment charges.
  • Projected 36.9% IRR and 1.84x cash multiple (pre-tax).
  • Considerations: Structural engineer sign off and freeholder consent required as per lease requirement.
