Having previously acted for Redefine International in the letting of Delta 900 to Oxford Brookes University, Keningtons were well placed to advise Swindon Borough Council on the acquisition of the investment when it was brought to the market by Redefines investment agents BCMRE.

Redefine had a 125 year long leasehold interest and granted an occupational lease to Oxford Brookes University in May 2016. It was this long leasehold interest which was being sold.

Jeremy Sutton of Keningtons saw this as an excellent opportunity for Swindon Borough Council who are the freeholders, to buy back in the long leasehold interest and benefit from an enhance rental income return from the asset.

The purchase price reflected a net initial yield of 8.15% after purchaser’s costs.
