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.
