Property Overview

This interesting and diverse property offers a fantastic investment opportunity and could be adapted in a number of ways to maximise potential. With six bedrooms, two kitchens, two living rooms and two bathrooms , this is absolutely ideal for use as a HMO, or could easily be divided and developed as two individual properties..?! Exciting!!

The existing layout lends itself perfectly to a new life as two three-bedroomed properties - a central entrance hall splits the accommodation evenly, with each side offering a kitchen, living room, three bedrooms and bathroom. There's a little bit of work involved with regards to updating and modernising the property, but there's no doubt that you'll get a great return on your investment with this one...

Auctioneer's Comments

This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the buyer to exchange contracts immediately; however, from the date the draft contract for sale is received by the Buyer's solicitor, the buyer has 56 DAYS in which to complete the transaction; whilst using every endeavour to exchange contracts within the first 28 days. Allowing the additional time to exchange contracts means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction, or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to make payment of:

  • A non-refundable Reservation Fee of 4.2% of the final agreed sale price including VAT - this is subject to a minimum of £6,000.00 including VAT - which reserves the property from sale by securing the transaction and takes the property off the market. The Reservation Fee is paid in addition to the final negotiated selling price.
  • A non-refundable Buyer Information Pack fee of £200.00 including VAT towards the preparation cost of the pack, if the Buyer Information Pack has been produced and provided by IAM Sold. The Documents in the pack can then be used by your solicitor during the conveyancing stage of the purchase.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
