(1) For the year ending 28th July 2019, J D Wetherspoon plc reported a turnover of 1,818,793,000, pre-tax profits of 95,419,000 and shareholders funds of 316,812,000 (Source: SmartSearch 25/08/2020).
(2) The mortgagee is aware of a lease dated 2 July 2005 in respect of the upper floors at the property granted to an individual for a term of 25 years at a peppercorn rent. The lease is not registered and as far as the mortgagee is aware, the Individual was not in occupation at the date of the mortgage (i.e. 1 February 2007). Accordingly the individual did not have an overriding interest and it is considered that the mortgagee is not bound by the lease. It is proposed that the Seller will execute the transfer deed for the property by way of a TR2. The buyer is however to make his own enquiries and satisfy himself as to his legal position.

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.
