Invest with only the best: Exclusive video interview with top student developer partner John Talbot

August 31, 2012Article by Ray Withers

With over 300 higher education institutions in over 200 locations in the UK and more and more accommodation investment opportunities coming to market, it can be hard to know what and with whom to buy.

I know from personal experience that investing with confidence is essential and having operated in the student property investment arena for 3 years now, my Head of Business Development, Stuart Johnson and I have got to know every major player and how they operate. Our rigorous due diligence and commitment to our core principle of Integrity means that we only work with the most credible partners with proven track records.

And it is for this very reason that we are delighted to be working in partnership with John Talbot & his associates on the very first Brighton student accommodation investment opportunity – The Regency.

John Talbot has been developing purpose built student accommodation in the UK for nearly 15 years. He has developed in the region of 3,000 purpose built student rooms in cities including Leicester, Birmingham and Lincoln.

The Regency will be John’s next project where he will be working alongside long-standing partners including Construction Manager David Nicholls who has over 20 years’ experience, Zebra Architects, Tier Consult, M&E Consultants and Project Manager, the renowned Edmond Shipway LLP.

Crucially John has also held a relationship with management company “provider of choice” CRM students for over 10 years through which the spacious studios will be let and managed.

Interest levels in The Regency have been some of the highest we’ve seen all year and 25% of the studios have already sold out within a fortnight of launching.
