EPC - Portfolio

This is a portfolio of investment properties, predominantly student lets set in and around Huddersfield. The Limited Company that owns the portfolio started acquiring property some 16 years ago and since then has developed this substantial rental income.

The houses offer a spectrum of accommodation from 2 letting room terraced houses to 4 letting room town houses. Most of these are within easy distance of the university itself.

Because of the substantial size of the portfolio, approximately 35 properties in all, the letting has been handed to 3 local letting agents. The instruction to the letting agents is to ensure that occupancy is maintained, as a consequence the highest yields have not been achieved, instead occupancy has been maintained. The owners feel that an additional £90,000 in rent per annum is easily achievable from the portfolio should a more aggressive tact be taken. This becomes all the more likely as the Huddersfield University student population grows exponentially.

This would then represent a yield of 8.0% approx per annum against current expected market value of £4.895 million.

The properties utilise the tremendous demand for student accommodation in the area thanks to Huddersfield University.

The University now provides courses for over 23,000 students and was awarded the prestigious Times Higher Educational Entrepreneurial University of the year in 2012 and 2013, plans are afoot to extend the University even further adding another 4000 students over the next two years.

As a consequence the pressure on student accommodation, which is already substantial, will be increased and expectations are that with Kirklees Borough Council's restrictive planning permission agenda for new build properties, this demand will only get stronger.

Furthermore, there is also the capital appreciation of the assets themselves. Although predictions of rises in property values is a notoriously speculative issue, Huddersfield is expected to see growth of approx. 8% in residential house prices from 2017 to 2018 despite Article 50 issues and is expected to be driven by the substantial increase in student population.

It is also worthy of note that funding is in place for the properties to an approximate figure £2,900,000. These mortgages are in the name of the Ltd company with the liability to be set against 100% of the issued share capital.

For a serious entrepreneur looking to capitalise on the robust student lettings market in Huddersfield this represents a tremendous opportunity to acquire a superb portfolio in one hit.

It is also of note, that another property portfolio in Huddersfield is also on the Market catering to a similar student market. It may also be of note that there is a tie up at Director level between the portfolios.
