Dividend Yield is a measure of the net income (gross rent less deductions) from a property investment relative to the value of the property. The Dividend Yield displayed for individual properties is calculated as follows:
- New Listings: annual Dividends expressed as a percentage of the Fund Raising Target (plus 2% London House Exchange fee)
- Resale investments: annual Dividends per share expressed as a percentage of Buy Price (plus 1% London House Exchange fee and 0.5% Stamp Duty Reserve Tax) at which that property is offered for sale at that time
For New Listing opportunities, the Dividend begins to accrue from the completion date of the property’s purchase, or a later date if specified in the property description.
