Key Ready Apartments in Bagshot, Surrey

A residential development, completed in February 2022. It is the result of an ambitious scheme that has converted an existing commercial property into a modern mix of 79, one-and-two-bedroom apartments. The development is set in a quiet and leafy residential district in Bagshot. It lies just 300m from the A322, and less than 900m from the nearest junction of the M3. This makes it an exceptionally convenient base for commuters: central London is less than 45km to the east, and many other employment hotspots are considerably closer still, namely Reading and Bracknell that house major corporations and large industrial estates. Like many districts of Britain, Bagshot is characterised by an insufficient supply of good, modern homes, which means that local rental demand is robust and reliable. The property is already over 75% tenanted and the developer will take responsibility for ensuring full occupancy. Consequently, as the newest and most striking development in the area, it promises low risk, dependable yields and excellent potential for continuing capital growth. A new residential conversion scheme Completed: February 2022 79 apartments A mix of studios and one and two-bedroom apartments Backed by a 10-year warranty 250-year leasehold £0 ground rent Prices from £190,000 Investment Highlights Prices start from £190,000 for a studio and £195,000 for a 1 bed and £265,000 for a 2 bed. Completed Development in February 2022 Strong local rental demand with all units currently rented Average Rent: £890 PCM 8.4% average annual price growth in the area Zero ground rent 250-year lease Service charges £1,027 per annum Allocated parking included with each apartment Short term lets allowed in the lease, providing up to 12% yield

The project is being built by the award-winning developer X1 and is scheduled for completion in November 2020. Once completed investors can enjoy a 2-year rental guarantee at 6% net or alternatively opt for a 3 years 5% net rental guarantee. Crucial to this project is the fact that it forms an integral part of a wider £650m waterfront regeneration project being developed by Peel Group which will see the Chatham Docks area regenerated into new retail, residential property, leisure facilities and also new transport links. Chatham and the surrounding area is in itself one of the fastest-growing London commuter belt towns and is currently undergoing a 20-year regeneration program of economic growth, new infrastructure and waterfront properties making the town one of the best prospects for capital growth in the UK. Property prices in the area have risen over 240% in the past 20 years and are scheduled to rise by 25-30% over the next five years. The population of Kent is also increasing with a forecasted 22.9% growth in the population by 2031.
