Obviously I cannot give you ad hoc advice here and now without knowing more about your circumstances, but generally, rented studios do not make money.
I think that the encroachment into this business by "Education, education, education" and the incredible number of Music Technology Students along with the Government sponsored schemes aimed at hug a hoodie policy's make even the property owning businesses very scared for the future at any level in Britain.
Every School in the Land now has a purpose built studio run by teacher's that seeks to bring in Local Artists and even commercial TV companies at well under the market rate even sponsored by a major Supermarket today. Yes I know its price fixing and illegal but hey this is socialism and we are the privileged land owning Lords of the music industry ripe for the guillotine. Hey why don't Tesco's run a voucher scheme to get kids free clothes and bicycles instead of giving microphones and musical instruments and recording equipment to teachers.
