Thirlmere Deacon

A new investment company has officially launched. Based in central London, Thirlmere Deacon is an exclusive property investment company which offers opportunities to invest in key residential and commercial developments across the UK’s best performing buy to let cities including Manchester, Liverpool, and Birmingham.

Led by Stuart Williams, who brings over a decade of industry related knowledge to the firm, Thirlmere Deacon was established in Spring 2018 to offer investors the opportunity to purchase buy to let residential, commercial and student accommodation properties in the early stages of development, enabling them to benefit from exclusive prices, long term capital growth and excellent yields which could offer returns of 9-10%.

Stuart Williams, Director of Thirlmere Deacon commented: “We are delighted to launch Thirlmere Deacon to the market. We are focused on delivering a highly personal and dedicated service to our clientele, offering them excellent investment opportunities in the UK buy to let property market. Currently we have exciting flagship projects in Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham with more to follow in the coming months.

Investors who choose to invest in these projects early on in construction will usually benefit from “off-plan” discounts ensuring that securing themselves instant equity on the completed values and only have to put down a deposit of around between 15-30%. Once completed, our projects are fully let and managed and pay yields of up to 10%, making it a desirable choice for those looking to build a property portfolio.”

The highly experienced team collectively offer over 25 years of expertise, presenting their clients with specially selected investment opportunities designed to truly maximise returns. Stuart’s background spans 13 years in the property industry, the majority of that time with a market leader in the off-plan buy to let market. Stuart brings a wealth of experience, particularly in building portfolios with residential and student accommodation asset classes and is putting that expertise, along with his own ideas, network and client care ethos into practice with Thirlmere Deacon.

The company undertakes a rigorous approach by carrying out extensive due diligence on its projects, carefully selecting developments on their feasibility and security from reputable developers, providing their client base with confidence and peace of mind when they invest.

There are many great locations for strong buy to let investments across the UK outside of the capital. In fact, as the prices in London have risen dramatically over the last decade or so, making it a less attractive investment, the team at Thirlmere Deacon have sold over £200m worth of property throughout the UK, in many of the major cities including London, Manchester, Belfast, Birmingham, Liverpool and Leeds. There are also a number of other emerging global markets that the team at Thirlmere Deacon have secured valuable experience and investment in over the years, such as; Egypt, the Philippines, Zanzibar, Brazil, Caribbean, USA, Italy, Spain and Morocco.

Stuart Williams, Director of Thirlmere Deacon states “It is a very exciting time to invest in buy to let property, especially in the areas outside of London. In Manchester for example, we are seeing more and more young professionals heading there and graduates staying there due to many economic factors including there being over 80 of the FTSE 100 companies located there. Rents and the general cost of living is cheaper, and the quality of life is arguably much better than that of London.

“We expect that the rental market will continue to perform well, particularly in major cities such as Manchester and Liverpool. Supply Vs Demand dictates that both property values and rental prices will continue to rise as demand increases at a higher rate of supply. Manchester City Centre alone is expected to see an additional 125,000 residents needing accommodation in the city centre by 2025.”

The flagship projects that the team are working on currently are the Regents Plaza, in Manchester which is a luxury residential apartment complex made up of one, two and three bed apartments on the famous Regents Road, one of the main routes in and out of Manchester city centre. It features high-end apartments which are spread across five buildings with

construction set to commence this winter, with completion expected in Q2 2020. In a city where values are rising by over 6% per annum, investors are securing prices now from £155,785 and expect a 6% yield on completion.

Construction at The Natex, a student residence scheme in Liverpool, will also commence before the end of 2018 Q4 with completion expected by Q2 2020. The development is situated on the former National Express Coach Station in the city centre of Liverpool. It is a five minute walk from both the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University. Natex offers a variety of accommodation units, from cluster bedrooms to studios, offering choice the 60,000+ and rapidly growing number of students in the city. The starting price is £67,500 for the standard en suite which is a bedroom with its own bathroom, shared kitchen and living area, and go up to £89,950 for the top self-contained studio apartments which are as large as 349.8 sq. f.
