Ale Property shares fall on rent determinations

ASX-listed Ale Property Group announced on Monday that it had received rent determinations on about half of its portfolio, with independent valuers determining that rents would remain substantially unchanged from rents preceding November 2018.

The A-REIT said the rent for 79 properties subject to review had increased by 4.4%, which included the rents for the 36 properties that were previously agreed to increase by the full 10% cap.

On top of the 2018 rent reviews, 85 of Ale’s 86 property leases continue to benefit from annual CPI increases.

The company said it was undertaking a detailed review of these issues, and would provide further updates on property valuations, capital management and distribution policy.

Shares in Ale Property closed 5.4% lower at A$4.49 on Monday.
