    Have you ever watched how long voids appear to be on many commercial lets?

    P.P.
    Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

      The void issue can apply to any class of property investment, its all about location,location,location.

      With commerciall you have much more secure agreements of min 5 year lease.
      If its an estabilshed buisness,then void times/re-newals should not be a problem.

      However, I have noted that they are very expensive especially good freeholds.

        You are right 'Wickerman', it all sounds very complex.

        I'm just investigating other avenues of property investment with out all the hassels of residentail lets.

        Like some People I know have done without specialist knowledge and now own a chain of freehold retail properties.

        However, I will seek more info on the commercial forum of this site.

          Main reason for residential: you don't need a surveyor.
          In commercial let, T likely to request consents to this & that. If you don't have a surveyor, experienced T will have its own surveyor run rings around you.
