Lincoln is a cathedral city in the East Midlands. Westminster House is approximately 2 miles directly north of Lincoln city centre, situated at the eastern end of Welton Gardens. Welton Gardens is a cul-de-sac which is accessed off Laughton Way North.

The living accommodation on the first floor includes an open plan kitchen / dining area, separate living room and entrance hall. At second floor level there are two double bedrooms, a separate bathroom and a toilet.

The kitchen benefits from an integrated hob and oven, fitted base and eye level units, stainless steel sink and drainer, tiled splash backs and vinyl floors. The dining room off the kitchen area has wood laminate flooring.

The lounge has carpeting, a gas fire, wall mounted radiators, good natural light and a balcony.

The bathroom has a bath with a hand held shower hose, sink and vinyl floor.

There is gas central heating via wall mounted radiators, UPVC double glazing and intercom access. The apartment has been refurbished within the last 1 months. There is a shared garden to the rear of the  property.

Investment Analysis
Six of the flats are located in Batley which is located within a 7 mile radius of two of the three largest cities in Yorkshire – Bradford and Leeds. The strong retail demand in Batley saw a £30 million Tesco superstore open that employs over 450 local staff in its 80,000 sq. ft. store. The six flats in Batley are all in the same block which is in a highly desirable location in the town centre. The flats are all modern and only require a low level of maintenance. The flats in Batley have previously all rented for £425 pcm but to avoid any void periods an agreement was reached with a housing association and all flats are now rented at £350 pcm.

The flat in Lincoln was refurbished approximately two years ago and offers modern living accommodation close to the city centre. The current tenant has been in occupation since May and has agreed to renew his lease for an additional 12 months.

One flat in Halifax has been  rented to the same tenant for 5 years and the other flat has been let to the same tenant for 3  years.

The total annual rental income of the portfolio is £40,800 and reflects a yield of 9%. If the rents were increased to £425 pcm on the Batley flats the reversionary yield would reflect approximately 10%. As above, the flats in Batley have all been previously let at £425 pcm.
