8th September 2016 Print

Located in the centre of Cardiff, the Cardiff Student Village perfectly located for students who are studying at both Cardiff University and Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Cardiff is the capital city of Wales and is constantly evolving and growing with it being the central location for many sporting events as well as being the home of the National Assembly for Wales. The population of the city is 354,300 with around 12% of that being made up by students. Cardiff is ranked in the top ten highest rate of population growth in the UK for students and it has been ranked top in the UK for international student support on numerous occasions, making the city a great choice for students.

The Cardiff Student Village is a development that consists of 249 studio apartments and all are fully furnished. They come with a fitted kitchen, en-suite shower room as well as a reception area and laundry room making them extremely desirable to all students.

Students who choose to reside in the development will have access to a number of amenities such as train stations, the Principality Stadium as well as a huge range of restaurants, bars and shops. It is a vibrant city that offers so much from a social perspective that it is not surprise that thousands of students choose to study in the city.

For investors, the development offers a superb opportunity to invest in student property within a city that performs extremely well when it comes to student numbers. 

Investors will have the ability to purchase off-plan where limited pricing discounts will be applied to phase one. Investors will see a 10% net rental return and 7% interest paid on their deposit. The development guarantees rental or five years which will provide investors with the peace of mind they need and of course the likelihood is that student numbers will continue to grow, strengthening the rental demand. The scheduled completion date for the development is the final quarter of 2017.

To take advantage of this exceptional student property investment in Cardiff that guarantees excellent yields, investors will have to complete the reservation form and pay a £5,000 non-refundable fee. 

This will then be followed by instructing solicitors before receiving the legal’s pack and completing the laundering process. Upon exchange of contracts, which takes place 28 days from the date of reservation, 25% of the purchase price will be paid to the solicitors with another 25% being paid three months after the exchange. The remaining 50% will then have to be paid with the title deeds being registered with the UK Land Registry.
