Tom Bromwich, of Bromwich Hardy

Commercial property specialist Bromwich Hardy has helped conclude a £3.1 million deal for a number of units on a Yorkshire industrial park.

Founding partner Tom Bromwich said the acquisition – on behalf of a private property company for which Bromwich Hardy was acting – was further proof that the commercial market was remaining resilient in the face of the pandemic.

Tom said the deal had involved four units covering 119,000 sq ft at Bridge Road in Brompton on Swale, Catterick.

The North Yorkshire Timber Company sold the site but will take a new 15-year lease on the units as part of the deal.

Tom said: “We are delighted to have helped conclude this deal for our client. It again demonstrates that there remains a healthy interest in the investment opportunities in the commercial property market.

“Our experience even during this latest lockdown is that investors are still confident in the long-term yields they can expect from industrial property and continue to see well-placed attractive sites as a sound investment.

“This is just one of a number of such deals we have concluded in recent months or are now close to bringing to fruition across the country.”

The Coventry-based agency has enjoyed a highly-successful start to the year, with figures from Estates Gazette placing it sixth in the country for deals in the industrial sector in January.

The figures – which compare all agents signed up to Radius Data Exchange – also showed that Bromwich Hardy was the eighth most successful agent nationwide last year for both retail and hotel & leisure sales and lettings.
