Britannia House, Stafford

Britannia House is our latest low-entry completed residential project located in the heart of England in Stafford. Britannia House features 32 apartments, a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments that are already tenanted and let to locals on assured shorthold tenancies. With prices starting from as little as £98,500 offering a yield of up to 10% net makes this a very attractive opportunity for our investors. All the apartments in this building have been built to an exceptional standard and contain everything a prospective tenant would need. All the properties are currently let and achieving yields north of 7% on long-term lets. With the high number of businesses and enterprises in the area as well as Stafford’s limited appeal to tourists, recently there has been a growing demand for short-term lets in the area. With the leases on these apartments allowing for short-term lets, investors have the opportunity to increase the current 7% gross yield on AST’s to a net yield of 10% net with short-term lets. The building was completed in 2019 and also has on-site car parking for up to 23 cars.   Introduction to Stafford The Borough of Stafford has a rich heritage and is home to over 6000 SMEs and micro-businesses through to large multinationals, such as Pets At Home, Perkins and GE.

About Sheffield Sheffield, the ‘City of Steel’ is in the eastern foothills of the Pennines and the valleys of the River Don with its four tributaries: the Loxley, the Porter Brook, the Rivelin and the Sheaf. Sixty-one per cent of Sheffield's entire area is green space and a third of the city lies within the Peak District National Park, the only city in the world to lie within a National Park boundary. There are more than 250 parks, woodlands and gardens in the city,  which is estimated to contain around 4.5 million trees. The city is 29 miles (47 km) south of Leeds, 32 miles (51 km) east of Manchester, and 33 miles (53 km) north of Nottingham. Sheffield played a crucial role in the Industrial Revolution, with many significant inventions and technologies having developed in the city. In the 19th century, the city saw a huge expansion of its traditional cutlery trade, when stainless steel and crucible steel were developed locally, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population. The city then became part of the county of South Yorkshire; this has been made up of separately-governed unitary authorities since 1986. The 21st century has seen extensive redevelopment in Sheffield. Sheffield's gross value added (GVA) has increased by 60% since 1997, standing at £11.3 billion in 2015. The economy has experienced steady growth, averaging around 5% annually, which is greater than that of the broader region of Yorkshire and the Humber.
