    Investment Summary

    Page 3

    A Recession Proof Investment

    There is a widespread dierence of opinion regarding what will

    happen in the residenal and commercial property market rightnow in the UK. But one thing that few experts disagree on is the

    potenal for both capital growth and surety of high rentals that

    comes with well located student accommodaon in key cies

    with presgious universies. Furthermore as always happens in

    me of nancial downturns and higher unemployment, student

    numbers always increase, providing you with a recession-proof


    A Stable And High Yielding Investment

    Over the past 6 years, rents in this sector have increased at 5%

    per year, in contrast to 0.6% for the commercial market as a

    whole and the occupancy rates for student accommodaon cur-

    rently sit between 97% - 100%. Also compared to residenal

    tenants who only sign up for on 6 month contracts students

    are oen required to rent for a full year.

    This provides incredible stability that is very hard to achieve in the global economic climate and

    which has made this opportunity so popular with both UK and overseas investors.

    A Passive Income And Turnkey Investment

    Most property investment is rarely as passive or hands o as we would like. However, by work-

    ing with a very experienced and established management company that specialises in the stu-

    dent accommodaon market, this investment provides you with that true armchair invest-

    ment where you can sit back, relax and see your regular monthly income hit your bank account.

    Please contact our experienced team on the details below if you have any quesons regard-

    ing this excellent investment opportunity, as we only have a very limited number of units


    Knight Franks View On Student Accommodaon In London

    With 291,000 full-me students enrolled across 40 Higher Educaon Instuons (HEI), London

    clearly remains a hub of student acvity and connues to occupy the top posion for student

    investment. It boasts a large proporon of both postgraduates and internaonal students, yet

    only 15.4% of its students are housed in university -owned accommodaon. Knight Frank con-

    siders that London needs a further 100,000 student bedrooms providing transport-accessible,

    value accommodaon in the 150-200 per week price range.

    Page 4

    Answering the growing demand for high quality student accommodaon

    There is currently a massive shortage of some 100,000 student rooms across London and in par-

    cularly in central locaons. For the discerning UK and overseas student, this bouque develop-

    ment, comprising of just 48 en-suite student studios will oer a luxury accommodaon opon

    and a fresh alternave to large, overcrowded old halls of residences and private housing in the


    Communal living areas and kitchens will be spacious and of a modern, contemporary design with

    large at screens televisions and all bathrooms ed to a high standard in line with achieving

    100% occupancy rates consistently, year on year. There will also be a fully ed gym, which will

    be free of charge for students.

    The development is located on Bexley Road which is just across from the Avery Hill campus and

    within walking distance of two of the most presgious further educaon centres for the Arts,

    Drama and Dance: Bird College and Rose Bruford College. Unique 51 week tenancies will be

    available which will ensure long term rentals and provide investors with consistent rental income

    for the future.

    Central Locaon To a Variety of Presgious Further Educaon Instuons

    Most students value the locaon of their accommodaon as much as the quality of it. This de-

    velopment at 157 Bexley Road, SE9 2PR, is located in a prime spot just across the road from the

    Avery Hill campus and close to two further educaon centres. This provides a large amount of

    student numbers for this small bouque student development and ensures long term rentals

    year on year and consistent rental income for investors.

    A guide for approximate locaons and distances from the student accommodaon is as fol-lows:

    University of Greenwich, Avery Hill - 100 metres

    Falconwood Railway Staon - 600 metres

    Rose Bruford College 750 - metres

    Q1. How achievable is the rental yield?

    A1. The rental yield is very achievable. Similar student accommodaon based in Greenwich oers a lower

    standard of accommodaon and smaller rooms, which rent for 180 to 220 per week and are consistent-

    ly 100% fully booked. Also this is without extra facilies such as a gym! Given the new build quality, theat screen TVs in the rooms and just 1 minute walking distance of the nearest university, these spacious

    and luxury student rooms will be the rst choice of any student studying in Greenwich. In addion the de-

    velopment is also close to two presgious performing arts and drama colleges as well, both of which do

    not have any accommodaon available for their students and have expressed a strong interest in these

    units already for rental purposes.

    Q2. What are the benets of 51 week tenancies?

    A2. 51 week tenancies are rarely oered by universies in their halls of accommodaon for the simple

    reason that they can rent these out on very high nightly / weekly rentals during the summer when they

    host conferences and convenons. In many cases rents can be as high as 100-

    150 per night. This caus-

    es a problem for students, in parcularly internaonal students who want to stay during the summer. By

    oering 51 week tenancies, not only does this development oer something unique, but also maximises

    the rental income for investors.

    Q3. What is the length of lease on the these student studios?

    A3. The lease would be for 250 years which is considered to be very long.

    Q4. Are there any sourcing / nders fees payable?

    A4. No.

    Q5. How experienced are the management company?

    A5. The management company will be experienced in this sector and are well established in the area. This

    level of experse enables the management company to consistently achieve occupancy rates close to

    100% year aer year.

    Q6. What do you mean by the rst year rental is assured?

    A6.This means that the developer will assure the payment of the rental for the rst year starng in Octo-

    ber 2012 which gives you absolute peace of mind. In the very unlikely event that the developer slightly

    overruns and misses the deadline, you would sll have your rental income for that year. Very few devel-

    opers have the experience and condence to oer such an assurance.

    Q7. How long do I have to make my decision to reserve?

    A7. As with all of our excellent property investment deals this project will be sold on a strictly rst come,

    rst served basis. Given the quality of this deal, the tremendous yields oered and the exceponal value

    for money we feel that this property deal will be very popular indeed so we would advise investors to re-

    serve as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

    FAQs (2)

    Q8. Can I purchase using a mortgage or does it have to be cash?

    A8. Unfortunately due to the current very stringent and restricted lending condions most lenders mini-

    mum loan amounts, at the moment mortgages are not available for this type of accommodaon and

    therefore you will need to purchase with cash. However, it may be possible, me scales perming, to

    raise nance either as a loan or re-mortgage secured on your exisng property which will then allow you

    to be in a cash posion to invest. The generally low interest rates available on a secured loan / mortgage

    would be easily covered by the extremely high rental yield oered here. The rental income should cover

    the cost of the loan and sll provide excellent passive income.

    Q9. How do I reserve one of the student studios?

    A9. Please contact our experienced team on the details below and we would be delighted to discuss with

    you the current availability. You would then need to sign and return the reservaon form along with the

    reservaon fee.
