The premises are available on a freehold basis subject to the following tenancy.
Tenant: Henry Ling Limited / Company Registered No: 244715
Terms: The premises are let for a term of 6 years from 4th April 2015, at a rental of £59,500 PAX subject to a rent review on 4th April 2018 to an RPI multiplier. There is a tenant's option to break on 4th April 2018 subject to 6 months prior written notice.
An Experian credit assessment rates the tenant as "very low risk" and copies of the report are available upon request.


The current tenants have been in occupation for many years and have additional accommodation to the side and rear of the premises. We understand that new machinery has been ordered for the site which indicates an intention to remain at the site for the foreseeable future.
The Dorking industrial market is extremely tight with virtually no accommodation currently available. The current passing rent is £6.27 per sq ft gross internal and we believe that the current open market rental value is in excess of £8 per sq ft.
We believe that this site offers scope for redevelopment in the future, with recent developments close to the subject premises including a new Lidl supermarket and a residential development.


£900,000 plus VAT. This provides an investor a net initial yield of 6.25% and a realistic reversionary yield of 8%.
