Opportunity to acquire an off-market supported living apartment block in Wigan with freehold, which is in the final stages of being leased to a housing association for 25 years.

The property has been recently developed and comprises eight 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartments with modern fittings, a communal area and off-street parking for 8 cars. The average size of each apartment is 443 sqft.

The developer is in final negotiations with a housing association to sign an inflation-linked, fully repairing & insuring (FRI) lease for the property for the next 25 years. The FRI lease will also be fully backed by the local council in order to cover any voids, which will provide an additional layer of security to the purchaser.

The first full year of net rental income will be approximately £58,200.

The developer is willing to involve serious purchasers in the final stages of the lease negotiations so that they may have all of the terms that they require with the housing association.

The apartment block is situated on the outskirts of Wigan on the A49. Travel times into the town centre of Wigan are 8 minutes by car or 13 minutes by bus, with bus stops nearby. It is also close to the M6 (4 minutes drive), which provides easy access to Liverpool and Manchester (both are around 40 minutes drive). The area is well served by retail outlets; Asda, B&M Home Store and Sainsbury’s are all within a short walk of the property.

House prices in Wigan have risen by 3.7% and 18.1% over the last 12 months and 5 years, respectively (Source: Zoopla, May 2020).

The vendor is seeking offers over £970,667.
