Location

The City of Perth sits within Central Scotland on the banks of the River Tay and is the administrative centre of Perth and Kinross. It has a resident population of around 50,000. The City is approximately 43 miles (69 km) north of Edinburgh and 22 miles (35 km) south of Dundee. Perth benefits from good road communications being easily accessible from the M90 and A90 trunk roads.

Description

The subjects comprise a recently refurbished retail unit arranged over the ground floor only of a substantial brickwork building with the majority of the upper floors in separate residential use.

The subjects until recently comprised part of a larger building on ground floor, where the adjoining subdivided space is currently under refurbishment for the creation of a new retail unit with fully glazed frontage. This property will be leased or sold separately.

Internally, the premises comprise regular open plan sales space with storage and staff facilities to the rear. The unit has been fitted out to a very high standard including new flooring, ceilings, lighting and air conditioning.

Investment Considerations

  1. New FRI lease for a term of 10 years without breaks;

  2. Let to the strong covenant of Sally Salon Services Ltd – Total Assets of £36 million;

  3. Tenant relocated/upsized to the premises from a smaller unit within St John’s Centre, as a result they have full trading history from retailing in Perth City Centre. New unit is trading ahead of expected target figures;

  4. A purchase at the asking price will provide an investor with an attractive net initial yield;

  5. Scope for reversion at rent review in Year 5;

  6. Attractive lot size.
