Investment Case Studies

Private overseas client portfolio

Acting on behalf of private overseas clients Cyril Leonard were appointed to invest funds into a commercial property.

The client advised Cyril Leonard's Investment Department of their requirements including:-

  • Location
  • Sector
  • Length of income
  • Return Requirement

Upon this Cyril Leonard actively sourced opportunities matching these requirements and working with the client secured two properties, both in an off-market situation. The first acquisition was of a R&D Facility in Oxford single let for 14 years with rent reviews five yearly linked to RPI, thus providing the client with growth through the term. The second acquisition was of a Headquarters manufacturing facility close to Leeds which was newly constructed in 2012 and is single let to a global company for a further 13.5 years and again the rent was subject to fixed increases.

Cyril Leonard's Project & Building Consultancy team were appointed to undertake technical due diligence prior to the purchase of both buildings which provided different challenges given the Oxford facility had been sub-divided into laboratory space and the Leeds facility required significant due diligence in relation to the construction. 

Cyril Leonard's Property & Asset Management department have been appointed to manage the properties on behalf of the client which includes rent and insurance collection as well as act as a liaison with the tenants. 

In this example by providing a full-service offering to our overseas clients, they have a single point of contact in Cyril Leonard for their property portfolio and a trusted relationship has been developed as a consequence.
