The deals include three convenience stores in Norwich, Aston and Washington let to Co-operative Food Group, a leaseback deal with Cazoo in Cardiff and a two-storey car park with 385 spaces in York – currently fully let to Q-Park. In addition to these assets the real estate investment trust purchased a 44-bedroom Premier Inn hotel in Exeter, which is fully let to Whitbread Group.

LXi REIT then secured three further deals that included a Tesco foodstore and Home Bargains in Houghton le Spring, a 73,000 sq ft ASDA superstore in Halesowen and, finally, a Compass training and conference facility in Stone, Staffordshire.
