strategy & vision

Liberal House, Bell Lane, Studley, Nr. Redditch B80 7LR comprises a traditionally built 2 storey detached commercial office property. Studley is a satellite village of Redditch comprising local shops, pubs, schools and a hospital. This bustling village is located 5 miles south of the M42. Redditch town centre is approximately 4 miles. Main employers of Redditch include AT+T, The Law Society and GKN. The population of Redditch is 65,000.

Studley has a population of just 6,000 people and provides excellent links and local amenities.

Planning has been granted to convert Liberal House into 2 X 3 bed apartments from Stratford BC planning ref. 16/01042. The borrower will implement the planning and then turn the property into 2 x 5 bed HMOs under PD rights.

The RICS valuation of existing property is £175,000, the price which the borrower is purchasing the property for.

RICS estimate of converted property with works completed (GDV) is £500,000.

Initially £122,500 will be lent towards the purchase with the remainder being drawn down in tranches on verification of our IMS reports.

CrowdProperty Comments

This is an excellent opportunity to convert a disused commercial property in a sustainable manner to meet the current housing needs.

The conversion of the property into 2 self contained flats will be completed within a 9-12 month period allowing time for Paul to refinance and redeem his loan to The Crowd.
