Adding value is central to our core investment strategy. Our team takes a hands-on approach to both new acquisitions and our existing portfolio ensuring that we are able to derive maximum value.
Our key areas of focus are:
- Planning gains on existing properties
- Purchasing vacant property with high potential for letting
- Re-gearing leases
- Investing in development opportunities
This approach has allowed us to realise profits from properties at the peak of their market value as well as ensuring that our existing portfolio is constantly evaluated to guarantee maximum returns.
Kilburn, London NW6
The property was acquired fully let and comprised of two ground floor shops with self-contained ancillary storage at first floor level.
New long term leases were agreed on the shops with the tenants surrendering the first floor. We subsequently obtained planning consent to convert the first floor into residential accommodation.
The property was acquired with full vacant possession and comprised a ground floor restaurant with six first floor residential letting rooms in need of modernisation. We simultaneously agreed a lease subject to planning with Papa John’s (GB) Ltd.
On obtaining planning consent for change of use on the ground floor to a hot food takeaway, we concluded a 15 year lease to Papa John’s.
The first floor has been refurbished and let on a single AST to students.
The property comprises a ground floor double shop with internal access to first and second floor ancillary accommodation let in its entirety to Coral Racing Ltd.
The property was purchased with two separate occupational leases each with a short time to expiry. We subsequently agreed a surrender of the existing leases and re-grant of a new 15 year lease without breaks.
This investment property was acquired with the ground floor shop let to Phase Eight Ltd on a reversionary lease together with a self-contained upper part comprising a beauty salon and residential accommodation in need of refurbishment.
The ground floor was subsequently reviewed and a substantial increase in rent was achieved. Vacant possession was obtained on the upper-parts and planning granted for 5 self-contained flats.
"Having sold several properties to Harkalm Investments over many years they remain scrupulously professional, honest and diligent in their dealings giving clients confidence in their ability to perform. They remain our first choice investment purchaser and bring a refreshingly proactive approach to property."
"Harkalm are a great client. I have successfully bought a number of retail investments for them in the North of England. They always perform quickly and are very straightforward to deal with. They will always give you an immediate response on anything you send through which is refreshing. They may never pay more than the property’s real value but they are always reliable."
