Location

The property is located in the coastal town of Workington, a civil parish at the mouth of the River Derwent on the west coast of Cumbria. It is bounded to the west by the Solway Firth, part of the Irish Sea, and to the east by the Lake District National Park. Workington is approximately 7 miles west of Cockermouth, 8 miles north of Whitehaven and 32 miles south-west of Carlisle.

The property prominently fronts onto Corporation Road on the edge of Workington town centre. It is situated in a mixed-use area directly opposite the Workington Town Hall Community Hub. Surrounding uses are commercial, leisure and retail, together with other established residential uses (predominantly characterised by Victorian-era terraced housing) along Corporation Road itself. All the town centre amenities are just a short walk away and both Workington Train Station and access onto the A66, which connects the town to the M6 motorway at Penrith, are under 0.5 mile to the West and East respectively.

Accommodation

Site Area - 0.17 acres (combined across both parcels of land).

Terms

Tenancy Schedule – See attached brochure for information

Guide Price - We are instructed to seek offers in the region of £1.25m.

This reflects a Net Initial Yield of 8.94%, assuming standard purchasers costs of 5.96% (and assuming the increased income is being collected). Based upon our views of ERV, this would show an attractive reversionary yield of 10.39%.

Title - The property is held long leasehold (999 years) from 11 February 2016 under registered title number CU294911. The title includes two separate parcels of land, the building itself and the car park opposite.

We understand a ground rent of £4,500 per annum is payable. 

Tenancies - All apartments are occupied on 6 or 12 month AST’s, with some tenants holding over due to being in occupation for several years.

Whilst we have not been provided with documented evidence, we understand that some of the rents have increased from those we have reported, which means the actual income being produced currently is £118,440 per annum. We are looking to verify this.

Services - Mains water, drainage and electric are all connected to the property.
