Agents comment

The lease to Homefair was negotiated during covid restrictions, the previous passing rent was £17,000 per annum. As the previous lease had expired, renewal of the lease illustrates the tenants confidence in the location to renew the lease, albeit with break options due to the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. With a well-located unit such as this, and a relatively low rent passing, it is considered that there are prospects for future rental growth.
