Allsop, the UK’s top auction house by transactions, has released its July commercial auction catalogue, featuring 136 lots with more than a quarter guided at or in excess of £1 million.

Lots on offer at the July auction include a mix of convenience retail, with both high street and roadside assets, as well as hospitality, pharmacy, industrial, residential, and medical investments across the UK.

The auction follows a busy six months for Allsop’s commercial auction team, which sold 280 lots in the first half of the year, raising £220 million and with an average success rate of 91%.

George Walker, partner and auctioneer at Allsop, said:
“With private investors remaining extremely busy expanding their property portfolios in the first half of the year, we’re delighted to release another prime catalogue that boasts numerous opportunities across a range of commercial property types. This catalogue presents a wide variety of assets, from the ever-popular roadside investments to development opportunities in London. Investors looking to deploy their cash quickly and effectively, especially as the summer break approaches, will likely be out in force.”
