Jonathan Hackett, consultant director at Bond Wolfe, said: “It is pleasing to see that we are now able to attract instructions on a national basis.

“Our rebranding earlier this year has certainly played a part in how we are perceived by the wider market, coupled with our ability to transact with investors further afield.

“The hybrid model we offer to sellers with our agency and auction businesses under one brand offers something different to the market and we continue to explore potential business acquisitions to assist our growth.”

Tudor added: “These kinds of long-term property investments are proving increasing attractive at our auctions as they will provide a steady income for decades to come – in many cases more than 100 years.

“It is clear there is a strong market for ground rents at present, particularly in an area where the residential property market is so strong.”

The portfolio of ground rents are among a number of lots that will appear in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which starts at 9am on Wednesday 8 December.
