Have your say

A PROPERTY deal in Sheffield has marked the passing of a major milestone for Irwin Mitchell’s real estate team, with its client the Mansion Student Accommodation Fund.

The deal, to acquire Rockingham House on Rockingham Street, close to the city centre, means that the firm’s Sheffield-based property lawyers have completed acquisitions worth £100 million on behalf of the business in just five months.

“This latest acquisition in Sheffield illustrates MSAF’s commitment to building up a portfolio of high quality student accommodation and its recognition that despite increasing tuition fees, demand within the UK’s top universities will continue,” said Irwin Mitchell associate Andrew Wallis.

We are delighted to have advised it on £100 million worth of acquisitions and look forward to working with MSAF in the future as it continues to realise the fund’s growth ambitions.”

MSAF was established by The Mansion Group, in partnership with Dartmoor Capital Management and specialises in acquiring purpose-built halls of residence in some of the UK’s largest towns and cities.
