Disposal of Retail Property

Custodian Property Income REIT (LSE: CREI), which seeks to deliver a strong income return by investing in a diversified portfolio of smaller regional properties across the UK, is pleased to announce the disposal of a high street retail unit in Cirencester at auction for £0.72m, in line with the 31 March 2023 valuation.

Commenting on the disposal, Richard Shepherd-Cross, Managing Director of Custodian Capital Limited (the Company’s external fund manager), said: “We were not confident in this asset’s future rental growth prospects and expect to use the sale proceeds to improve the remaining portfolio, which we believe will better support the strategy of providing our shareholders with strong income returns.”
