RENTAL APPRAISAL

Local Lettings experts DIGS say;

In our opinion, this building holds the potential, subject to planning, to greatly increase the number of lettable units which would then create a significantly increased income from that being achieved currently. The existing layout has very large bedrooms and excessively spacious communal areas. It is likely that the purchaser of this building would want to completely change the internal layout to accommodate a larger number of smaller letting units to make full use of the internal communal areas and perhaps also to utilise the possibility of adding further skylights to the top floor to create more bedrooms centrally. The flats would need to be completely refigured and refitted throughout.
With the current lack of opportunities in the City Centre this is an area that is now rapidly becoming more and more the prime focus of developers in this market area and is a location which we believe is going to play a key part in the student letting market of the future.
Projected income for 3 to 4 bed cluster units in this location if done to A1 high standard is £475 to £495 for 2018-19 occupation depending on room size.
