How to calculate gross and net rental yields

While there are many ways to compare and contrast different properties, one of the simplest involves the use of gross and net rental yields. Once these figures have been calculated, it is extremely easy to compare and contrast different property prices, rental income and their comparative value for money. Even though capital gains on property investments tend to be the main focus for many people, cash flow is essential and gross and net rental yields are a useful indicator of value for money. Calculating gross rental yield The gross rental yield of a property is fairly straightforward although there are some issues to consider. If we take this example: Purchase price: £100,000 Annual rent: £7,000 Gross rental yield: 7% There is also an argument for including one-off purchase costs such as stamp duty (where applicable), legal fees, etc. If we assume additional purchase fees of £4000 the figures change slightly:...

Why it’s important that your building is energy efficient

  Whatever your business, if you manage a commercial property with over fifty square meters of floor space, you require an up to date energy performance certificate.

Office Trends We Can Expect to See Soon

  Of course it’s always wise to be a bit careful when making predictions, particularly where technology is concerned, as anything can happen. Innovations that everyone touts as The Next Big Thing can sink with barely a whimper and the idea that gets smirked at or used as bloatware takes off and dominates. When it comes to workplaces, companies and office space providers want to be ahead of the curve, as this means more profit, better communication with employees and clients, more industry recognition and, well, an easier worklife. This drive helps with predicting office tech trends, because if it lightens the load, it’s probably a goer. Here are four techie trends that are taking off: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Smaller companies and start-ups have never had a problem with employees and contractors bringing in their own laptops and tablets to work on.
