The property is let in its entirety to Akzo Nobel Powder Coating Limited (trading as Cromadex) on a full repairing and insuring lease for a term of 10 years from 25 March 2014. The current rent passing is £20,950 pax, which equates to £4.69 per sq ft. The tenant has been in occupation for over 25 years.

The lease incorporates a rent review at year 5 to the Open Market Rent. The rent review of the 25 March 2019 has not been documented and therefore provides significant scope for immediate reversion. We are of the opinion that the current rental value is in excess of £30,000 pa (£6.71 per sq ft).
