Residential Land in Property Week: Resi Land unveils plans for £500m spend


Residential Land has put a £40m development in Chelsea on the market and revealed plans to spend £500m in prime central London this year.


Knight Frank and Savills have been appointed to find buyers for Peony Court, a gated development of seven townhouses and 12 apartments covering 18,065 sq ft, which are fully let with an annual rental value of £1.34m.

The £40m asking price reflects a yield of 3.35%.

The scheme also contains a 1,136 sq ft retail unit, let to the Little Black Gallery, which is owned by celebrity Tamara Beckwith.

Planning permission has been granted for an 840 sq ft penthouse apartment at the site on Park Walk, which runs between Fulham Road and King’s Road.

Bruce Ritchie, chief executive of Residential Land, said: “Prime central London has an undeniable elegance and with the pound deflated against the dollar, Peony Court offers a profitable and unique investment opportunity.

“We invested £500m in central London residential in 2016 and we are looking to spend a similar amount this year, predominantly in new-build stock.”

Autumn Statement 2016: No more lettings administration fees

In today’s Autumn Statement (23.11.2016), the chancellor, Philip Hammond has announced that lettings administration fees are to be banned ‘as soon as possible’.

At Residential Land, we pride ourselves on being a responsible landlord, therefore have taken it upon ourselves to act immediately on this and have cancelled all our administration fees ‘as of today’ (23.11.2016).

Autumn Statement 2016

Please be assured, this won’t affect any of our services to anyone looking to rent and/or our tenants. We take our responsibilities as a landlord very seriously. We employ an in-house team of lettings agents, building surveyors, property managers and maintenance experts. With a 24-hour helpline and on-site staff to answer questions during office hours, we are confident that renting a property from Residential Land will be an enjoyable and stress free experience.

Residential Land prides itself on being London’s largest private landlord and therefore has a vested interest in its buildings. This is just one of the reasons why we were voted Landlord of the Year.
