Allsop’s first commercial auction catalogue of the year offers 113 lots offering a total rental income of £5.9m, along with 25 investments guided at £1m or more. The February catalogue offers a wider range of assets than usual, from stalwart convenient store investments, to several major industrial property sites and care homes.

The February catalogue features 12 industrial investments, including lot 71, the largest lot in the catalogue. Located in Barking Essex and comprising of five warehouse units totaling 16,921 sq ft, it is likely to be sought-after in a sector that is short of supply. Currently generating a total rent of £217,198, it is guided at £3.25+m.

Lot 80, also an industrial investment, located in Warrington and comprising of 45 multi-let units totaling 36,668 sq ft on a four-acre site, it is guided at £3m+ and is the second highest priced investment in the catalogue. It currently generates a total rent of £272,967 per annum.

February’s auction catalogue also comprises 10 convenience stores, four care homes and a number of mixed-use investments combining retail and residential. For example, lot 61, a very attractive town centre Halifax Bank, with two maisonettes above, all let to Bank of Scotland at £195,000pa. It is guided at £2.7m – £2.9m.

George Walker, Partner and Auctioneer, Allsop said: “This catalogue offers a wider range of investments across all sectors, than we have offered for some time. There are good examples of quality offices, industrial, mixed use and a range of alternative assets from inside the M25 to right across the UK. The catalogue also features a high number of convenience stores, which is popular and familiar stock among private investors.

“With a strong end to last year we look forward to a good start to 2020.”

The auction will take place on February 11th at The Berkeley Hotel, Wilton Place, London SW1X 7RL. The catalogue can be viewed online.
