Head Leasehold Interest, Fairlands Court & Newlands Court, 28-34 Footscray Road, London, SE9 2SS
Sold £80,000

Currently let at £113.48 per annum

This ground rent investment is held on a Head Lease (The Crown is the freeholder) which expires on 5th July 2060 and includes 45 leasehold flats with associated garages, held as under-leases. 42 of the flats are sold on long under-leases with peppercorn ground rents. The three remaining flats produce a current annual ground rent income of £113.48 and should these leaseholders decide to extend at any date in the future, it offers the potential for a 50% share of the marriage value.

Fairlands Court and Newlands Court is a development of low-rise three storey buildings at the junction of Footscray Road and North Park. Located in a much sought-after area in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the flats are near to Eltham High Street and Eltham Station.

We understand the Head Lessee insures, maintains and manages the blocks, recovering the costs from the leaseholders by way of a service charge, which currently generates £19,500 per annum. Part of the property comprises a sub-station which is currently let to London Power Networks Plc for a term expiring on 4 June 2022. Negotiations are under way to renew the lease for a term of 40 years at an initial rent of £250.00 per annum subject to five yearly rent reviews based on RPI.
