Our apartments will be completed in Q1 2021 and are selling quickly. If you require a development that is ready sooner please anticipate higher prices as they are all considerably more expensive than The Pendleton.

It is a reality in Manchester, that the value and selling prices of properties can rise considerably during construction. Our prices reflect a considerable off-plan discount compared to current market values for similar apartments.

110% Buy-Back Guarantee after year 5 (only if you want it)

March Progress Report Here

Recommended Apartment

A 1-Bed Apartment has a RICS Valuation £136,000. 

You get a 10% Discount giving a purchase price of £122,400

30% Deposit which includes the (reservation fee of £2,500) – £36,720

70% balance of purchase by way of Buy to let mortgage –       £85,680  

Mortgage payments on Buy-to-Let Interest only will be circa £249.90 pcm 

Guaranteed Rental yield of 8% for the first 3 years     £816.00 pcm  

The 8% yield is equal to a gross return of £9,792 a year less mortgage payments of £3,000 provides a guaranteed balance of £6,792 per annum profit.

There is a buy back option after 5 years of 110% of the purchase price which equates to £136,000 giving a capital growth profit of £13,600 (local experts predict much higher growth rates – property is scarce nationally and in Sheffield particularly).

Therefore, if the property was sold in 5 years for the guaranteed value of £136,000 you will have earned £13,600 + £33,960 (5 yrs rental income after mortgage payments) = £47,560.  Obviously, you also get your deposit back.

This example is based on potential rental income from year 4 based on current rent levels and costs. 

These returns are very high and is an example of how your money can work harder for you rather than depreciating in a high street bank earning under 1% 

You also have the options to keep the apartment in Sheffield and, as the value increases, you can release some of the equity to fund another investment further down the line and grow your property portfolio.

The Developer    

Noble Design and Build was established in 2001 and over the years has built up an impressive project portfolio. As a successful house builder and developer Noble is highly experienced with both small and large-scale developments. Since 2005 it has been a market leader in the residential and student sector with circa 3,700 completed units to date, and a further 1,200 in the pipeline until the end of 2017. 

Noble Design and Build’s focus has been on key growth areas of the UK, including Buckinghamshire, Luton and Sheffield. Sheffield has been a particular focal point, with a number of residential eco-developments that have been designed to meet the under supply of accommodation for 20-24 year olds. These unique eco-friendly projects run on 80% plus renewable energy; examples of these green methods used in Noble builds include full rainwater harvesting systems, full biomass heating systems and A+ grade recycled wood pellets. Recent projects include London Court, M Suites and Printworks. 

Since 2012 Noble has operated a very successful letting and management company; Noble City Living – this was created to provide a seamless service alongside the development company. Noble City Living efficiently let and manage all 3,700 units and maintain a 96%-100% annual occupancy rate. It also manages the wide range of services and amenities within the developments, which include gymnasiums, cinema rooms, laundry rooms and retail space. Noble’s simple philosophy is to create high quality developments at affordable entry levels that will provide guaranteed and sustainable year-on-year rental returns for all investors. 

Why invest in Sheffield? 

Sheffield, England’s fourth-largest city, is an exciting and modern place with a population of over 560,000. It is one of the UK’s popular destinations for students, playing host to over 60,000 domestic and overseas students, a high proportion of whom choose to stay, or return and settle in the city. 

There are currently over £1billion of major schemes underway in Sheffield, including New Era Square, the city’s pioneering, £65 million, 21st century ‘Chinese Quarter’. The complex, due for completion in 2018 (and very close to the Sheffield Central development), will include retail units, offices and an exhibition hall surrounding a central, open-air public events space, as well as a ‘business incubator’ to enhance trade links between China and the UK.

Please enable images for the best reading experience
With a huge shortage of quality accommodation in the area, ONE London Road (Phase 3) offers a unique and unrivaled option for students at an incredibly competitive price: 

  • Home to two universities, the area is screaming out for quality student accommodation. Demand versus supply is probably the strongest in the UK.

  • With the town centre an easy 10 minute walk, ONE London Road will cater for students at both Keele and Staffordshire Universities.
  • All apartments priced at a very attractive £69,999.
  • 10% net returns assured for 3 years excluding Ground Rent (£350).
  • Payment to purchase is spread throughout the build.
  • 4% interest paid on deposited funds until completion.
  • The developer has an excellent track record, having built the 100% occupied, 160 room Keele House nearby.
  • Keele University will list the development on their dedicated accommodation site, where students can book apartments direct.
  • The first two blocks sold out quickly and are already under construction for completion in xxxx.
  • Phase 3 will complete in time for the 2020 academic year intake.

The Location

Newcastle-under-Lyme is a historic market town in Staffordshire and part of the wider Stoke-on-Trent area. With a population of 75,125 and a regional catchment area in excess of 140,000 the town has excellent transport links with the A500 providing direct access to the nearby M6. 

Direct rail services are available to London, Birmingham, Manchester and further afield from nearby Stoke-on-Trent railway station. Manchester and Birmingham International Airports are situated 35 and 54 miles away respectively and easily accessible. 

Newcastle-Under-Lyme has grown to become an education and service hub with both Keele University and the Royal Stoke University Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the UK, situated in the town. 

In addition, the University of Staffordshire in nearby Stoke-on-Trent, has campuses across the country being consolidated into this location.

Situated on London Road, the development is a 10 minute walk to the town centre. The Royal Stoke University Hospital, home to the Keele University Medical School, is only a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction. 

The site provides easy access to both Keele and Stafford Universities, which are directly accessible in approx 20 minutes from bus stops located outside the development, with 4 buses per hour throughout the day.

The Student Market

The Newcastle & Stoke region is the largest higher education destination in Staffordshire and extremely popular with students. Keele University and the University of Staffordshire currently have a combined 24,270 full time students.

Please enable images for the best reading experience
The local Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) market is in its infancy in comparison to other UK locations with student populations of this size. The supply of PBSA is limited, with the vast majority of beds being under University ownership and both out dated and poorer quality. 

In Newcastle there are currently only 160 beds available in the direct let market. These are located in one scheme, Keele House, a previous and successful project by this developer. A further 440 are available in Stoke-On-Trent across three schemes. The area is significantly under supplied for the number of students there and this will only increase with the continued growth and popularity of Keele University. 

The majority of students are currently forced to live in poor quality HMO’s located throughout the area, vastly inferior to the product provided by ONE London Road, which will offer the highest quality accommodation for students in the region, superior to all current options.

Property Description

Phase 3 of ONE London Road follows in the same design, and high quality that was offered in Phases 1 & 2, both now sold out. The development has been very popular with investor clients due to the practicality provided by the development to the students it will service. 

These are high specification self contained studio apartments, with the majority being a generous 18 sqm. 

Phase 3 will complete in time for the 2020 academic year intake.

A landmark scheme, ONE London Road provides quality accommodation and amenities for its student residents, with easy access to Keele and Staffordshire Universities, as well as the town centre. 

Phase 3 is arranged over ground and three further floors, with a roof terrace and use of the spacious external communal space. A generous amount of car parking is provided, giving ease of access for students moving in and out, for investors this also provides further potential for income generation.

About Easy Property Investment

Welcome to our website

Here, we hope, you will find useful information and opportunities that you can rely on to deliver what they promise.  There are many types of Property Investments and Investors.  What is perfect for one is of no interest to another.  We have tried to find a small range of the best opportunities.  Investments come and go, so if you don’t find what you are looking for please revisit.  Or better still, please contact me personally with any queries or thoughts on my email :

Our Story

My colleagues and I have had varying degrees of experience in the Property Investment Industry.  Some experiences have been fantastic and others have been, frankly, disappointing.  We have worked for agencies and developers across a spectrum of property classes mainly in the UK and Europe.

When I started out I just did what I was told with very little understanding of the product or opportunity.  I certainly had no knowledge of any potential risks for clients. Just sell.  That was the way it worked.  In some cases and places it still is.  Over time I gained a firsthand (yes, I invested my own money) knowledge of how the industry works.

I became a cynic and almost a specialist on when and why it didn’t work.  Bad partnerships of Developers and Agents that were doomed at the outset, due to greed and a lack of transparency on either part or both.  No safety nets in place.  People chasing commissions rather than long term client relationships.  Recently a wise old Sikh gentleman summed up the offerings to agents from developers.  “The higher the commissions the bigger the risk to the client.” How true !!

Doing it Right

We have taken all our knowledge and use it to find the safest and best deals in the marketplace.  If we don’t think a client’s money is secure we won’t promote an Investment.  We only look at developers with a proven track record.  We ask a lot of “What if ?” questions to ensure that every possible occurrence has a contingency plan.

It is not all about protecting your Investment, though that comes first.  It is imperative that completions take place on time and that mortgages, if required, are obtainable and the property is fit for finance purposes.  A regular flow of information from the developer is important to see that milestones are being achieved on time.

We Want The Same Thing

A good agent looks after clients and only promotes solid Investments.  A good agent judges an Investment on its merits rather than their own earnings.  A good agent becomes a great agent because of repeat business.  We hope to serve you in the years to come.

If you ever need some information (not necessarily on our opportunities) or have any questions, feel free to contact me on the details below and I will be more than happy to help.

All the best,

Des Donnelly /
