THE BUSINESS & OPPORTUNITY
The business traded at Operetta for many years. A new tenant acquired the business by way of lease assignation in 2018 for a substantial premium. The new tenants intended carrying out a
refurbishment in 2020. However, the tenant company was placed into Liquidation in December 2020. The property is now available to let by way of a new long-term leasehold opportunity. The premises offer and excellent opportunity to create a new and vibrant business. The premises are equally suited to focussing on early morning / daytime trade or alternately more conventional restaurant trade or indeed a combination of both.
The premises are offered on a new tenant full repairing lease. It is anticipated the lease term will be 15 years with 3 yearly rent reviews.
We are seeking rental offers over £65,000 pa exclusive of VAT and service charge. A rent free period will be granted to assist the tenant in the refit and to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic. Interested parties are free to offer for the movable equipment such as the kitchen equipment and tables and chairs etc. Any offer will be discussed by CDLH with the Liquidators of Operetta Scotland Limited. It should be noted the Liquidators have no interest in the property and landlords fixtures and fittings.
EPC available on request.
