Article image A reassuring message to anyone wanting to invest in bricks and mortar, the prospect of getting the stamp duty paid and furniture package also provides a double whammy of significant savings and attractive proposition to potential tenants looking for somewhere to live.

Mary Timlin, Crest Nicholson sales and marketing director said: “The fact that anyone who buys a property at the award-winning development can gain instant returns on their investment places Bath Riverside in the box seat for would-be property investors.

“To have brand new furniture as part of the deal will also give buyers a hassle free route to attracting tenants.”

Ticking a lot of boxes for discerning landlords and tenants, Bath Riverside’s proximity to the city centre and Bath Spa railway station is a big selling point. The fact that the properties are brand new and are cheaper to run is also a big attraction for potential tenants.

The city’s favourable reputation both home and abroad for both its secondary and further education also attracts thousands of students, many from other countries looking to study in the UK.

Including scores from China and the Far East, pressure on current housing stock has meant limited availability in terms of places to rent, so anyone wanting a buy-to-let will find a ready supply of tenants looking for somewhere to live.

Mary added: “UK education is highly regarded across the globe and Bath is blessed with two well renowned universities and a host of quality private and preparatory schools.

“Parents, whose sons and daughters are planning on coming to Bath to study for a degree, and are considering buying so that their offspring have somewhere to live during their studies, will be hard pushed to find anything comparable.

“It solves the issue of them having to find somewhere half decent to live and renting the other rooms out will help provide an income.”

Current availability at the development includes a selection of two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments, often viewed as the preferred choice for those looking to rent.

Located in the Alexandra House phase, they will be the last apartments available for at least two years at the development – so the need to act now couldn’t be more urgent.
