LONDON MEWS HOUSE
image A charming 2 bedroom house in Cheval Place, SW1 (1216 sq ft) which is a quiet road in the heart of Knightsbridge. The property was sold by Carter Jonas at the end of 2012 for a guide price of £2.250m.

The property if purchased in a non-natural name will now be affected by the Annual Residential Property Tax (ARPT) as it is worth £2m plus with an annual charge of £15,000. A valuation would be required for ARPT purposes as the purchase price is not deemed relevant for submission and the value is close to the £2m price bracket.

If the owners are not planning on occupying the property they may consider renting the property to a third party on a commercial basis, which falls under one of the exemptions. A recent rental appraisal carried out by our Knightsbridge & Chelsea office of £1,250 per week would provide a yield of 2.89%.
