1. Leading research agencies Savills, Knight Frank, JLL and CBRE, have predicted house price growth in Yorkshire & The Humber of 17.6%, 13.1%, 14.2% and 13.1% respectively, over the next 5 years (correct as of 17/11/2017). The average of these predictions is 14.5% and once geared by the mortgage debt would deliver 5-year capital growth of 27%, based on selling the units individually. Once a dividend yield is added, this would equate to a total return of 48% over a 5-year period after deducting all costs of purchase (including the initial Property Partner transaction fee) and accounting for corporation tax on the capital gain, if the property were sold at this value. The enhanced rental income promotion is paid in addition to these underlying returns.
