YPP Lettings has acquired 23 Butts Court, an office building in Leeds city centre, on behalf of its clients for an undisclosed sum.

Represented by Cushman & Wakefield, YPP acquired the building from David Samuel Properties, which was represented by Buchanan Bond and SC Associates. Schofield Sweeney acted for YPP on the purchase.

23 Butts Court is made up of two adjoining period buildings with separate ground floor retail accommodation and open plan office accommodation set over three floors. It is located in the prime commercial area of the city.

The entire building, currently let to Leeds Building Society, has recently been refurbished to a high standard.

“YPP are a growing firm, now with over 40 properties in the north of England. In particular, this building is in an ideal location and offers fantastic opportunities in the future, with potential for re-letting and conversion for hotel or residential use.”

Schofield Sweeney has made several additions to its property team in recent months.
