  • Current rental income pcm: £8,300
  • Current rental income pa: £99,600

Rental potential:

Apartment 6 and 8 can be furnished and equipped, at an extra cost, which would increase the rents of each apartment to £1,195 - £1,295 excluding bills. The vendor has tested the market and confirmed that there is demand for it.
