(1) Established over 50 years ago, Paperchase is the UK's number 1 retailer for exciting and innovative design-led stationary. Paperchase operates from over 130 stores in the UK, with over 30 sites across Ireland, Netherlands, Denmark, France, Germany and the Middle East (www.paperchase.com).
(2) The tenant will benefit from 3 months rent free from 01/10/2020, however the Vendor has agreed to adjust the completion monies, so that the property effectively produces 87,500 pa from completion of the sale until the expiry of the rent free period.

If you are the successful bidder, Acuitus requires a separate payment of £1,000 inclusive of VAT as a buyer's administration charge payable to Acuitus Limited upon exchange of contracts. A VAT receipt will be provided upon payment.

Due to the current restrictions in movement throughout the UK, the property may not have been inspected by Acuitus. Some photographs may not be current and these will be dated where this is the case. Plans showing nearby occupiers and mention of nearby occupiers may reflect a dated situation as some tenants are not currently in occupation. Floor areas and accommodation details are likely to have been obtained from VOA.Gov.UK and the Vendor.
