Larkfleet Invites Buy-To-Let Investors to Oakham Development For Special Open Weekend

From Friday 29th August to Sunday 31st August, housebuilder Larkfleet Homes ( is holding a special ‘investors’ event’ at its Leighfield Park development in Oakham, Rutland.

Over the three days, Larkfleet will provide buy-to-let investors with details of the full range of properties available at Leighfield Park, including tours of the development’s three showhomes on site. Free financial advice will also be on offer and a local letting agent will be on hand to provide rental and landlord advice to anyone interested in purchasing a property to let out.

As a special weekend incentive, investors who reserve a home during the three day event will get all flooring included in their property purchase price.

Leighfield Park offers fantastic opportunities for buy-to-let investors. The energy-efficient properties – PV panels that generate energy from sunlight are fitted as standard to all houses – are built to LABC standards with a ten year NHBC warranty.

Properties range from one bedroom apartments from just £114,995 – perfect for young professionals – to five bedroom family homes for growing families at £289,995.

Oakham boasts low unemployment figures and rental demand in the area greatly exceeds availability, providing investors with a potential 5.5 per cent gross rental yield (based on an apartment brought for £129,995 and rented for £600 per calendar month).

The location of the development, on land between the Oakham bypass and Barleythorpe Road, is also ideal, offering the best of rural living with excellent transport links. The area offers several outstanding schools and Rutland Water, one of Europe’s largest man-made lakes, is less than seven miles from Oakham.

Larkfleet CEO Karl Hick said: “The Leighfield Park investors’ weekend will provide buy-to-let investors with a real insight into the opportunities that our Oakham development offers. The development has proved to be popular with buyers due to its location and quality of properties. For this reason, properties on the site are also a great investment for those looking to expand their property portfolio, especially as Oakham continues to grow.”

The Leighfield Park sales office will be open from 10:00 to 17:00 over the ‘investor’s weekend’ event.

Leighfield Park is part of Oakham Heights, Larkfleet’s major urban expansion of Oakham.
