PJD Properties have submitted a planning application for 5 light industrial B1/B8 (trade counter) units totalling just under 13,000 sq ft on a 1.26 acre site located on the edge of Stockport town centre. The 1.26 acre site is located at the corner of Chestergate and King Street West. The site, which was acquired in the 1970’s, and previously housed Chestergate Mill until its demolition in 2009, is currently used for car sales, with a children’s play centre occupying a warehouse at the front of the site. Plans submitted allow for five units, ranging in size from 1,880 sq ft to 4,000 sq ft, with up to 59 car parking spaces. A sensitive design and landscape solution has evolved out of Pozzoni Architects and Square Yard working closely with Steven Levrant Heritage Architecture; a team led by J10 Planning, with agency advice provided by Avison Young. Mentor House, which fronts King Street West opposite Weir Mill in a corner of the site will be retained due to its protected “locally listed” status but does offer another opportunity. Mark Davies, Director at PJD Property, said: “The site has changed considerably over the last five decades and whilst we have considered many alternative uses none of these have been found to be viable. I believe that the proposals will secure its redevelopment for a sustainable employment generating use. It’s in a great location, minutes away from Stockport town centre, the rail station with direct access to the M60 and the A6. “I am confident there will be a lot of interest in the units and I am prepared to speculatively develop the site given the demand for this scale of unit and location.”

Hello Investors, I have another amazing investment property for you this week with a yield of 7.35%. Just amazing!
Its a huge plot over 4,000 sqft with 2 on site car parks. The property is currently being utilised as 2 large house shares with a total of 16 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. I believe that out of this development you would be able to achieve 10-12 1 bedroom apartments which would each rent for approx. £600 per calendar month to good tenants (working professionals) if finished to a high standard, with modern kitchens and the inclusion of white goods. This would bring in a return of £6000 to £7200 per calendar month which is £72,000 to £86,400 per annum.
The property is on the market with MBRE for £1 million and the works would cost around £70,000 to £100,000 which, taking into consideration the rental prices, would achieve you a fantastic yield of 7.35% but also in doing this it would significantly increase the resale value.
For more information on this property or for more information on buy-to-let deals in Stockport, please do not hesitate to give me a call on 0161 474 8668.

- A number of UK average-priced homes could be bought for the price of some of 2018’s record-breaking, luxury items.
- In October, a 73-year old French Burgundy wine became the world’s most expensive bottle ever sold. The value of just one bottle could purchase nearly two houses in the UK. For car enthusiasts, the costs go higher. The record-breaking sale of a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO, was equal to the purchase price of 213 UK homes.
- Yorkshire born David Hockney broke the record for the highest priced work of art sold by a living artist this month, with a price tag equivalent to 286 UK properties. A month earlier a pink diamond smashed the record for the highest price per carat of any diamond ever sold.
- In property terms, London’s One Hyde Park penthouse remains the most expensive property recorded as ‘sold’ in 2018. It equates to 655 average-priced homes across England and Wales.

I am delighted to announce that we have been instructed as selling agents on this stunning new Town Centre development.
Local developer Sal Arya, of Urbanize Homes, have appointed CPUK to build their brand new 13 storey, 164 apartment building on the former Greenhale House site. The project was given the go-ahead last week by Stockport’s planning committee, with builders due onsite in April 2019.
The plans for the site include 78 one-beds, 84 two-beds, and two three-bedroom penthouse apartments in a 13-storey block along with a commercial unit at ground floor; this is likely to be occupied by a coffee shop. Nine of the apartments are to be affordable, in line with Stockport’s planning policy.
We are taking enquiries immediately. If you are interested and would like further information then please contact me at email@example.com

The number of property valuations for first-time buyers has risen in all areas of the UK except for London, according to the latest data released this week by UK Finance.
The largest increases in first-time buyer valuations were in the north of the country, where over 43% of first-time valuations are for properties priced less than £125,000. The North East leads the way with an increase of 3.8%, followed by the North West with 3.3%.
Across London, valuations in the first half of 2018 were down 3.9% on a year ago. A quarter of valuations were for properties priced over £500,000, compared to the UK average of just 4%.
First-time buyers are currently facing less competition for a property from buy-to-let investors. In the first nine months of 2018 buy-to-let mortgage approvals across the UK have fallen by 13.5% compared to the same period a year ago.

Stockport has entered the top 10 of buy-to-let investment areas in England and Wales, in new data published by specialist mortgage lender LendInvest.
It sits in second place, behind only Colchester in Essex, in the new quarterly Buy To Let Index Reporthaving moved up a whopping 18 places from 20th in last July’s figures. In more excellent news for the BTL scene in the north-west, Manchester is one place below its near-neighbour.
The research looked at each postcode area around England and Wales and focused on a combination of four critical metrics: transaction volumes, rental price growth, rental yield and capital value growth.
From these four metrics, Stockport has performed particularly well in capital gains with a growth of 6.34% and has been helped by rents rising by 3.18% over the same period. Strong yields of 5.29%, backed by reasonable figures in capital gains and rent growth, has helped Manchester move two places up in the index and the city’s buoyant property scene seems to be rubbing off on nearby areas. Elsewhere in the north of England, both Leeds and Harrogate feature in the top 20 at 12 and 20 respectively.
The Midlands also ranks highly in the new LendInvest data, with Birmingham joined by Wolverhampton and Coventry in the top 10.
Ian Boden, Sales Director at LendInvest, commented, “The growing opportunity for BTL investors in these regions reflects a knock on effect of investment in these key cities. Locking down a solid prediction of how the landscape will look into the New Year is no easy task. In this instance, we know it is best to let the data do the talking.”

These changes were introduced in April 2017 and progressively increase the tax liabilities of all 40% tax paying Landlords who have Buy to Let mortgages. Is this you? The first time you may become aware of this extra tax burden could be when you receive your next tax demand in January 2019.
We are recommending a meeting with our internal Buy to Let Expert to talk you through the implications and potential solutions.
Please call on 0161 474 8660 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a convenient time for either a telephone or face to face meeting.
