  • A total of 163 lots, let at a total rental income of £9.4m
  • 30 lots being marketed at £1m or more
  • The March catalogue is 45% larger than this time last year

Allsop’s March commercial auction catalogue offers 163 lots at a total rental income of £9.4m, with 30 lots guided at £1m or more.

The March catalogue continues to offer a wider range of assets with retail investments representing some of the larger lots. The catalogue also features a good range of industrial properties, which is a sector that continues to be of interest to buyers, as evidenced from the success of the February auction.

Retail investment highlights include a total of 10 convenience stores such as lot 7, a Co-op store in St Albans, let at £85,000pa on a lease expiring in 2032 and guided at £1.5m. In addition, the catalogue includes two more long leasehold B&M stores likely to be of interest to investors, lot 97 in Ebbw Vale and lot 101 in Brigg, on sale from a portfolio.

A further 10 industrial assets are on offer, which are likely to be sought-after in a sector that is short of supply. This includes lot 6, in Reading, a warehouse and office investment comprising a total of 18,294 sq ft, let at £110,000pa and guided at £1.1m – £1.2m.

The largest lot on offer is lot 92 a multi-let office in Hertford, comprising of a total of 18 office units covering a site area of 1.64 acres. The accommodation includes a large car park and is let at £306,687pa, guided at £3.7m.

George Walker, Auctioneer and Partner at Allsop, said: “The latest catalogue is released into a market which is cash rich, and based on the results from our February auction, is eager to buy the right stock. The latest fluctuations on the stock market serve to reinforce the long term reliability of income streams available from a range of commercial investments and we anticipate a busy sale, which is 45% larger than this time last year. The first weekend of marketing has already proved a busy one.”
