The property was acquired at an initial yield of 13.4% due to the fact that the tenant was not a major covenant and had a break in 2016 – which in practice they did not exercise.

The top floor fl at was also derelict which has now been refurbished and re-let along with the first floor on a new 15-year lease. The ground floor lease renewal is due in 2020 and the plan is to hold the asset for income and capital growth until that point.
