Enterprise Inns has sold another 26 pubs for £32.5m.
The company has sold the properties, all of which are in London, to Hermes Property Unit Trust on a sale-and-leaseback basis on 35-year leases.
The proceeds from the sale are greater than the total book value as at 30 September 2010 of £25m.
All the properties will be held on full repairing and insuring leases with five-yearly upwards-only increases, all increases in line with RPI subject to a minimum uplift of 2% per annum and a maximum uplift of 4% per annum.
