Tenure: Leasehold

***Attention investors**** This property is currently tenanted on a shorthold tenancy until October 2017 and is currently generating £525 rent per calendar month.  This represents a fantastic 8.4% gross yield for any future landlord.

This attractive one double bedroom first floor apartment is part of a sympathetically converted church known as St John’s Chambers. Recently redecorated, this apartment retains many beautiful original features from the Church and offers accommodation in brief comprising communal entrance hall with intercom system, lift, kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The property enjoys communal grounds. 

St. Johns Chambers was converted in the late 1980's, making it one of the city’s first flat conversions. The property is situated within a quiet part of Leicester city centre giving excellent access to the city's range of bars, restaurants and shopping facilities and is well placed for the outer ring road and Leicester train station (which is handily just across the road). The universities and the Royal Infirmary are just a short walk away via New Walk which runs past the property. Although centrally located, the apartment faces the communal gardens at the back of the building so is very peaceful.

The property benefits from a recently extended lease of 125 years. Service charge and ground rent are paid together on the 25 March and 29 September. Half yearly service charge payments amount to £493.17 and £37.50 half yearly ground rent. Therefore totals for the year are £986.34 for service charge and £75.00 for ground rent. Insurance is included in the service charge payment. The terms and conditions of the ground lease together with verification of these charges should be checked thoroughly by your solicitors before proceeding to purchase.
