(1) For the year ending 31st March 2019, Salvation Army Trading Company Limited reported a total turnover of £54,317,884, pre-tax profits of £6,753,953 and shareholders funds of £17,291,528 (source: SmartSearch 29/09/2020).
(2) The lease is subject to a tenant option to determine on 26/07/2025.
(3) Under the terms of the lease, the tenant is paying half rent from the start of the lease until 25/01/2021. The Vendor has agreed to adjust the completion monies, so that the property effectively produces £7,000 pa from completion until the fixed rental uplift in January 2021.

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.
