(www.countrywide.co.uk)
(2) The self contained offices have been sub let to Breckenridge & Viana Limited (CRN 01683392) at a current reserved of £6,250 per annum exclusive.
(3) The lease provides for a tenant option to determine the lease on 24th December 2021 on serving 6 month written notice. The Seller has received no notice from the tenant and therefore the tenant has not exercised their option to determine the lease.

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.
