(1) For the year ending 31st December 2020, Bank of Scotland Plc reported a turnover of £773,000,000, pre-tax profits of £883,000,000 and shareholder funds of £13,380,000,000 (Source NorthRow 17/05/2021).
(2) The property is let for a term of 15 years from 10/12/2012 by virtue of a Reversionary lease from 10th December 2022 until 9th December 2027. The current rent reserved under the terms of the lease is £25,000 per annum exclusive. The tenant is currently benefiting from a rent concession of £16,666.64 per annum exclusive from 25th March 2021 to and including 28th September 2022. The Seller will pay the Buyer the difference between the current rent reserved of £25,000 per annum exclusive and the concessionary rent of £16,666.64 per annum exclusive from completion of the sale until 24th March 2021. Therefore the property will produce £25,000 per annum exclusive from completion of the sale.

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.
