Addendum To Printed Catalogue

We have been informed that there is a schedule of works required on the building; which includes (but may not be limited to) work on the external rendering, and windows in flat 5. The current scaffolding will remain in place whilst works are being carried out. Further information and approximate costings on the proposed works should be included in the management pack. All parties should read through the pack prior.

Property Description

A one bedroom apartment located on the entry floor of the building. The property features a double bedroom with sea views, lounge with glorious sea views enjoyed from the large bay window, separate kitchen and a bathroom. The previous letting agents for the property have stated the apartment could command up to £600 PCM/£7200 PAE in rental income on an AST basis, or could be enjoyed as a residential home. Other apartments in the building have been used for holiday letting purposes which could have the potential to generate approximately three-fold income compared with residential lettings, depending on occupancy throughout the year. As a ground floor apartment, it allows easy access from street level.

* Guide Price

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

* Reserve Price

The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Buyers Fee

A successful purchaser will also be required to pay a Buyer’s Administration Charge of 1.2% of the purchase price subject to a minimum fee of £1,500 including VAT (unless stated otherwise within the property description in the catalogue) by debit card or bank transfer.
