Investment property, 600m to University. Fully let to 8 students for 2016-18 academic years. 2017-18 income = £36,064 with a 46 week lease. Potential £37,632 at same rent × 48wk.



An offer of £360,000 cash has been accepted, conveyancing work is underway.

We have another 8 bedroom student property for sale at £360,000, it's 400m from Plymouth University (PL4 8HN).


Group 1: 8 tenants contracted until 20th July 2017.

Group 2: 8 students have signed individual contracts & paid deposits for a lease term from 1st September 2017 to 20th July 2018. These tenants all have UK resident contract guarantors.


Average rent per room is £98 a week, this is up to 50% lower than the rate at student halls.

Payment is debited termly, it's calculated as follows: M = total rent ÷ 11. September = 5M, January = 4M, April = 2M.

Gross income for the 46 week 2017-18 leasehold is £36,064. Most landlords require longer contracts, a 48wk lease term would generate £37,632, 50wk = £39,200.


The property was last inspected by Plymouth University in April 2017, it received an A grade. Competitor accommodation is mostly further from campus and inferior in quality. We've had 100% occupancy since the property was purchased in 1997.
