  • 94 lots on offer at first Allsop commercial auction sale of 2024
  • Over 40% of the lots on offer are in London and the South East
  • 20 lots have guides at or in excess of £1m, three of which are over £4m
  • Total income from all the lots on offer is in excess of £6.39m p.a
  • Six lots are being offered on behalf of Receivers


Allsop Commercial Auctions have launched the year with the release of 94 lots in their February catalogue.

The sale will take place online on Thursday 8th February and it contains a wide range of well-priced properties, with guides ranging from £6,000+ to £7m. Sellers include Tesco, Farmfoods, My Dentist, Various Trustees, Columbia Threadneedle and numerous other Funds, Property Companies and Private Investors.

George Walker, Partner and Auctioneer, commented “After a stronger end to last year we are pleased to release our first catalogue of the New Year, with a bias towards some larger lots, continuing the trend from Q4 last year.

The largest is Larkswood Retail Park, Lot 26 in Chingford, guided at £7m, an office in the heart of the City of London Lot 16 Lovat Lane EC1 guided at £4.25m+ and a Nuffield Gym, Lot 18 in Stoke Poges guided at £4.3m+. The market has plenty of choice across these three sectors alone in which to invest.

With the continued easing of long-term inflation and the pressure now to reduce interest rates and tax in the March budget, we believe that there are reasons to be optimistic about the year ahead.”
