Hoping for a quick answer as I need to work something out this evening.

Basically, I'm looking for the answer to two things;

1 - What is the correct method in calculating the yield on a commercial property investment.

2 - In the current commercial property market, what would be considered a good yield, with a very good tenent in the property on a strong lease (25 years)?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

    1. This is actually basic maths, if you need to be told how to calculate it, should you be investing?

    2. 25 year leases went out with the ark. I won't sign anything longer than 3 year or I will sign 5 or 10 if it's in my favour and has a break clause.
