The aggregate estimated rental value is £120,240 pa (£10,020 pcm) with a service charge budget of £17,600 pa. The apartments are fully let and are achieving £9,520 pcm in aggregate. The commercial unit is currently vacant and contributes to £500 of the monthly estimated rental value.

The property is situated in the town centre of Hoyland, which lies 8 miles south of Barnsley (20 minutes by car) and 10 miles north of Sheffield city centre (30 minutes by car). The location has excellent transport links thanks to the close junction of the M1 motorway and Elsecar train station.

A £4.5 million redevelopment project has been announced, with contractors appointed, for the regeneration of Hoyland town centre, including a new market site with 30 stalls, three kiosks, a disabled toilet, wash room and a 26-space car park, a new 12,000 sqft supermarket and a 6,000 sqft department store, plus several smaller retail outlets.
