After nearly 7 months of tense negotiations, representatives for an unknown foreign investor and former owners, N7 properties closed the sale of a lifetime.

N7 properties were represented by local estate agent MS properties, based on Lenton Boulevard.

Michael Sahota, who runs the agency said it was four times larger than his previous best sale.

Mr. Sahota was able to confirm that the investor was based overseas, but could not divulge the identity of Mr. Mystery Moneybags.

The portfolio of properties contains a whopping 99 bedrooms, and representatives for Senor Mysterio, SweetSpot Nottingham have revealed they are planning extensive renovations to bring the properties up to a luxury standard, according the Nottingham Post.

Residents however, were kept in the dark:

“We had no idea what was happening until we got a letter through the door” said one bewildered student.

When told about the nature of the new owners business, one Lenton resident quipped, “We don’t need more luxury houses, this is expensive as it is”.
