case study

Radford’s Field Industrial Estate – Oswestry

This fifteen unit industrial estate, originally developed by English Estates in the early 1990’s, was purchased by clients of ours, in an off market transaction, as part of a wide ranging brief to establish a commercial property investment portfolio with an end vale of c £15m.

Included in the purchase was a vacant parcel of land which was the subject of an Easement in favour of Severn Trent for a pipeline. The land was restricted to agricultural / amenity use thereby rendering it undevelopable and so of nil or nominal value.

Following considerable due diligence it was established the pipeline had never been constructed and indeed the Easement was no longer required. After Deeds of Release were entered into a planning consent for the construction of additional industrial accommodation was obtained resulting in a significant enhancement in the value of the freehold reversion.

Additionally, in our capacity as managing agents on the estate, some vacant accommodation has been let establishing a new rental tone which will assist in the forthcoming rent reviews.
