Frequently asked questions

How do you select retail locations to purchase?

All the properties we purchase for our trusts must meet our strict selection criteria. We also have a comprehensive due diligence process to ensure our investors get the best outcome. Our due diligence checklist includes:

  • Ensuring that the property has no latent defects
  • Comparing the property to its market peers
  • Ensuring that the conveyance is legally effective
  • Form a capital expenditure plan to assure funding for standard maintenance

How do you select roadside retail properties to purchase?

All our roadside retail properties must meet our strict criteria to ensure they will provide the best value for our investors. We also use a comprehensive due diligence process which includes:

How secure is the rental income stream from tenants?

One of the risks of commercial property investment is tenant risk.  This includes the risk that:

  • The business of the tenant fails and the tenant is unable to continue to honour the lease obligations
  • The tenant completes the current term of the lease but does not renew
  • And there is a market review and, based on the business of the tenant, the rent reduces

These risks and the way in which Fawkner Property deals with these risks is set out in a separate section of the disclosure document devoted to risks of investing.

What makes non-discretionary retail a good investment?

Retailers such as supermarkets enjoy a unique position in the market since they form part of consumers' essential spending. Large supermarkets also have long leases with fixed rental increases.

Our trusts are designed to provide reliable monthly income and long-term capital stability, which makes non-discretionary retail an ideal choice.

What makes roadside convenience retail a good investment?

The convenience, Quick Service Restaurant (QSR), and fuel retail sector provides highly desirable commercial property investments. The sector is resistant to economic downturns and strong tenants provide reliable monthly income.

At Fawkner property, we are market leaders in roadside retail and convenience, and we have syndicated over $250 million in roadside retail assets.
