Agents Monk & Partners are pleased to announce the letting of an industrial unit off Sutton Road, Coxside, Plymouth.

Having received the instruction and placed the property on our website last week, a viewing ensued on Monday morning and the tenant signed the lease and took occupation today, just 4 days later.

The unit having a floor area of just under 1000 sq ft has been leased to Skyline Recovery for a term of 3 years.

John Slade of Monk & Partners comments: “It is pretty unusual to transact properties this quickly but this proves it can be done.

This letting is further evidence that there is still plenty of demand for industrial units but a distinct lack of availability particularly for vehicle repair related trades.”

Written by

RETAIL LETTING - 51 Mutley Plain, Plymouth.

Local property investors who recently acquired the freehold of 51 Mutley Plain, an end terraced shop with residential upper parts and were advised on the acquisition and subsequent letting Plymouth commercial property agents Monk & Partners.

The property was formerly occupied by Boots Pharmacy prior to their move to larger premises three doors along this vibrant street.

Monk & Partners have subsequently relet the ground floor and basement of the property to a local Artisan bakery and café user who has obtained planning permission for their use and are currently undergoing a substantial internal refit.

The upper parts have now been approved to convert into two self contained flats and the refurbishment of those is about to start with a view to completion in July.

Agent John Slade from Monk & Partners comments, this property along with other shops have been available To Let for a considerable time but as can be seen from recent activity on Mutley plain, the vacant units are beginning to spring back into life with the recent opening of Starbucks, relocation of Dominos Pizza, Consol and other units currently being under offer.

Written by

Another Successful Sale by Monk & Partners on the Former Church Sale.

Acting on behalf of SW Baptist Association, Plymouth commercial property agents, Monk & Partners have sold the Former Ford Baptist Church in Alfred Road, in the Plymouth district of Ford.

The premises have been sold to a local property developer for conversion to circa 10 flats which will prove a welcome enhancement to the street with the property having become dilapidated and unused.

Property agent John Slade commented, we initially offered this interesting looking property having a mix of architectural styles to the market in 2016 only for the sale to falter and the property was withdrawn.

The subsequent conditional sale was agreed with the developers and after a lengthy planning process they achieved the required permission to convert the property.

The building works are now under way with a view to bringing the flats to the market in 2020.

5/6 Marjorie Ct, Saltash Parkway

Written by

Commercial property letting agents Monk & Partners have secured a letting of units 5 and 6 Marjorie Court to Bearing Options Ltd. Located on the established and popular Saltash Parkway estate, the units were constructed in 2008 and comprise a terrace of 4 units suited ideally to smaller businesses.

Having been instructed by the private owners, following two previous tenants simultaneously vacating, the agents identified the new tenant who were looking to relocate from smaller premises elsewhere in the town.

The units had a floor area of circa 500 sq ft each with partial mezzanines above and a rental of £10,000 p.a.x. was sought.

A new lease of the pair of units was agreed for a term of 6 years.

John Slade of Monk & Partners stated ”these units have always proved popular to the smaller or start up business. Since their construction in 2008 we have been instructed to let them at different times and each time voids are short lived due in part to the quality of the units, the landlord being flexible on the lease term granted and also the added benefit that business rates are nil in the current regime. Furthermore the units are located adjacent to the A38 providing easy access to the rest of Cornwall and the Tamar crossing into Devon, Plymouth and beyond.”
