Commercial Property Investment

Commercial Property Investment
Added on Jun 26, 2013

‘Buy to let’ can be a great form of investment. Many people will know, or will have heard of somebody who buys to let residential property, but have you considered how investing in commercial property could be beneficial to you and your investment portfolio?

Investing in commercial property doesn’t necessarily have to mean vast factory buildings which require hundreds and thousands of pounds of investment. Just like residential property, commercial premises come in all shapes and sizes, meaning you can pick the right size and location for your money and investment.


What are the benefits of investing in commercial property?

  • Many commercial property contracts require tenants to take care of the upkeep of the building and are usually required to return it to its original condition once the contract is up. Those taking on the let of a commercial property usually take on the insurance along with service and maintenance fees. This will take away the additional workload required from you as the landlord to make the commercial property let self-sufficient.
  • Commercial properties typically let for between 8-15 years in the UK compared to a residential property which can be rented for as little as 6 months. This will give your investment more stability, along with the option to include automatic rent reviews to fit in line with inflation.
  • Depending on location, condition and size of a property, higher rental payments can often be obtained through commercial property lettings, allowing commercial property investors the opportunity to profit from their investment in less time than the residential equivalent.


Commercial property investment options:


What types of commercial property can you invest in?
