Revision in rent of the Leases dated 1/12/16 of Units 7 & 8 Midleton Industrial Estate leased to Wilson Electrical Distributors Ltd.

Decision Maker: Joint Executive Head: Assets and Property

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To approve the reviewed rent of the above properties leased to Wilson Electrical Distributors Ltd. The properties are held on 2 separate leases though the leases are virtually identical.
In accordance with clause 7 of the leases, the annual combined passing rent of £70,000 has been reviewed as at 1/12/21 (Note: rent to be backdated only to date that the head lease was surrendered – 4/5/23) and it is proposed to increase it to £77,100.

These units were occupied at the surrender date in May 23. The former head lessee had failed to trigger the 12/21 rent reviews. Accordingly, post surrender we decided to trigger the reviews and after a period of negotiation our consultant recommends the matter is concluded - the reviews being broadly in line with market evidence at the review date.

A memorandum will be endorsed on the lease recording this review.

If you have any queries, then please contact Charles Wood who will be happy to provide further information.
