The Old Brewery launches tomorrow with prices starting at 140K

'Bristol Res' Blog • 30 November 2018

This Saturday will see Savills launch Bristol’s newest conversion, The Old Brewery. Situated in the hugely popular Old Market area of the city, The Old Brewery is an exclusive conversion development consisting of 19 studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. Erected in the 19th Century, it was originally the site of The Redcross Brewery and in most recent times has been in use as office premises. The former brewery has been sympathetically renovated and will add to the already popular neighbouring developments in Old Market.

The apartments have been designed to be stylish throughout with high specification fixtures and fittings but also benefiting from retaining some of the character of the original build. Alongside the excellent transport links within the Old Market area, the property is perfectly positioned for those wanting to be near to Temple Meads, Cabot Circus and everything else that Bristol city centre has to offer. Prices range from £140,000 for studios and up to £300,000 for 2 beds. With strong demand expected from high quality, professional tenants, we anticipate yields of up to 6.4% for some plots.

Should you be interested in the development, the launch will take place on site from 10am Saturday 1st December. We recommend arriving early as the apartments will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

If you would like to discuss the investment potential of The Old Brewery, please contact Don McKeever, Lettings Director, who will guide you through the best plots in the development.

Annual rental information submitted to HMRC

Each year all letting agents receive a request from HMRC under Schedule 23 of the Finance Act 2011.  This request requires the letting agent to respond to the following instructions from the HMRC.

‘What Information do we want’ ;

We need to know about rents you have paid to landlords who use your letting agency services so we can check that the landlords are declaring the rents for tax. To get this information I am using legislation that allows me to place a legal obligation on The Bristol Residential Letting Co to send it to me. This is not a check on your tax affairs. We use this information to check that the landlords have paid the right tax on the profits from their rents. Your return will need to cover Gross rents collected in the period 06 April 2017 to 05 April 2018.  In respect of each landlord you have obtained rents for you must give me the following particulars

  •  The name of the landlord to whom the rents or other payments were paid
  •  The landlord’s address
  •  The total gross rent paid by the tenant for the period shown in this notice
  •  The address of the let property to which the rent or other payments relate

The Bristol Residential Letting Co has just received the request for the 2017-18 data and we would like to inform all landlords that this information will be submitted to the HMRC in the first week of December.
