The Challenge

Our client is looking to diversify their wealth and build a buy-to-let portfolio in Central London. Our aim is to identify opportunities where we can buy 6 more units in order to both qualify for commercial rates of stamp duty but also secure decent discounts. The aim of the portfolio is to provide our client with a stable rental income and capital appreciation over the medium to long term.


The Perfect Conclusion

We successfully sourced this superb bulk discount purchase of multiple units in one of the best new builds to come to market in north central London in recent years. Islington Square was once formerly an Edwardian Royal Mail sorting office, and retains period charm and character combined with all the efficiencies of a new build. We negotiated aggressively and managed to secure a significant 17.75% saving on the asking price resulting in a 4.8% projected net yield (return on equity).


The Unfair Advantage

We have the expertise to source and negotiate excellent discounts in the best buildings for our clients. In this instance our client has been able to take advantage of the weaker pound, and a softer market, to secure an attractive discounted multiple unit purchase. Black Brick will manage the letting of the apartments, providing a seamless service at minimal stress to the client.
