Property Investment

We have a strong track record advising a range of clients, both private and corporate, in the acquisition and disposal of commercial investment properties.  A couple of examples of our integrated approach are presented here as Case Studies.


4/5 Southernhay West, Exeter

In 2015 Stratton Creber Commercial were instructed by a London based investment company to act on their behalf managing this multi-let period office building situated in Exeter’s prime business district adjacent to Cathedral Close and the High Street.

After a period of active management, aimed and improving the fabric of the building and tenant profile the company decided to sell the building in 2016.  They instructed us to carry out a full marketing campaign which resulted in significant interest where we eventually realised a price in excess of the asking figure of £700,000 at a yield equating to 6.5% after allowing for normal purchasers costs.

Following the sale, a local investor re-instructed Stratton Creber Commercial to continue managing the property liaising with him to refurbish vacant lower ground offices thereby maximising the rental income and improving the client’s investment yield. We continue to provide a pro-active management service anticipating future expenditure demands within the scope of the service charge budget.


Lower Tweed Mill, Dartington

On behalf of Dartington Hall Trust we have recently sold an office building known as Lower Tweed Mill in Dartington let to three tenants. Due to the high level of interest in the property we sold the freehold to a local investor in excess of the asking price of £525,000, providing him with a net initial yield of about 8.3%.
