Glenn Levison, associate director at Eddisons, said: “Leeds always holds a lot of appeal for potential investors and these lots offer an attractive range of opportunities across the city with some potentially very good yields.

“There is something for everyone, from straight-forward, fully-let properties providing an assured return to vacant properties and land with development opportunities and potential for longer-term capital gains.

“With both the commercial and residential markets performing well at the moment, we’re already receiving a lot of enquiries from around the country.”
