Property Details

A mixed use investment property comprising a ground floor and basement Veterinary Practice with an additional and self contained 4 bedroom House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO). The commercial element is let at £9,000pa on an effectively fully repairing and insuring basis and the accommodation above is let to students at a low rent of £325pcm per room. Whilst the property is fully let producing approximately £23,300pa, we suggest that there is potential to increase this to circa £400-£450 per room, i.e a total rent in the region of £28,200 - £30,600pa. Early enquiries are recommended.


The property is arranged as a ground floor Veterinary Practice with additional basement storage, with a 4 bedroom House of Multiple Occupancy above. The maisonette above also provides a large kitchen/living room with 2 showers and WCs. Our client is in the process of applying for a Landlords License.


The property is situated in a prominent location in Hotwells providing easy access to the Cumberland basin, Bristol City Centre and Millennium Square.



The ground and basement floors are let to Independent Vetcare Limited (Company No. 07746795) at a passing rent of £9,000pa on an effectively a fully repairing and insuring basis for a term of 5 years from October 2017. Independent Vetcare Limited are a leading veterinary service providing over 1,300 clinics and hospitals across Europe.


The rooms are currently let on Assured Shorthold Tenancy terms for a period of 11 months at a rent of approximately £325pcm until 30/6/2020. We understand the rent includes water rates. We consider this to be a low rent and suggest there is potential to increase the rent to a figure in the region of £400-£450pcm (exclusive of bills) over a 12 month period.
Our client has made an application for a Landlords License and is awaiting an inspection.
