Private Accommodation – 14 units
  • Gross Development Value (GDV): £5,220,065
  • Expected Size: 7,630 sq. foot
  • Price Per Square Foot: £684
  • Average Unit Size: 545 sq. foot
  • Average Unit Price: £372,862

Commercial – 6 units

Gross Development Value (GDV): £140,000

This ground floor commercial space will be at a 999-year sale and leaseback agreement at peppercorn rate. The residual land price agreed was reduced since they will be building these units out but not retaining them. Risk is therefore reduced as the sale and leaseback are agreed at a viable residual land value for the residential development. In return, the vendor has requested a charge on the land behind any senior debt/equity charges if Tillingbourne Estates or the proposed SPV undertaking the scheme were to go into liquidation during construction. The developer has made it clear that any such charge will only be a token one and have no real value and the seller understands this.
