To the far end of the site is an area of agricultural land totalling a further 2.45 Acres which is also within the ownership of the vendor. The vendor has confirmed they would be prepared to offer this additional land with the site for an additional consideration. There would be an uplift imposed on the field should the purchasers obtain residential or commercial planning consent on this area of land within 10 years from the purchase. Full details available on request.
The property is currently served by a bore hole on the vendors retained land, but a mains connection is available, and this will be swapped over at the vendors cost within 6 months from completion of the sale.
We understand electricity is available to all units, including 3 phase to some units, with drainage via a private drainage system located within the boundaries of the site.
We understand that VAT is not payable on the purchase price.
Price and tenure
Offers are sought in excess of £1,275,000 for this substantial freehold Investment opportunity subject to and with the benefit of all tenancies as at completion, offering considerable scope to both further develop the site and increase the rents currently being achieved. The current rent roll is just over £107,000 to include the annual fit payments from the solar panels, offering an investor a gross return close to 8.5% before purchaser costs. In addition there are areas of the site that could be developed, or redeveloped, to offer additional units or further storage containers, subject to the usual consents.
A tenancy schedule is available on request, which shows many of the rents currently achieved are low in the current market, several of which haven't been reviewed for the duration of the current lease. Most of the leases have been excluded from the Landlord and Tenant Act, although some which are holding over could now fall within the act, purchasers are therefore advised to seek their own professional advice.
Each property is separately rated with each tenant being responsible for the rates of their respective unit.
Energy performance certificate
Energy Performance Certificates have been obtained for the units, copies are available from the agents on request. Most of these are C, D or E ratings.
Each party to be responsible for their own legal costs.
