(1) Zoohause Limited are a boutique furniture designer that offer an eclectic mix of furniture pieces. They were established in 2016 and now trade from two different locations, in St Albans and Woburn (www.zoohause.co.uk).
(2) The lease is subject to a tenant option to determine on 25/10/2028.
(3) The tenant is benefitting from half rent from 25/10/2023 until 24/10/2024. The Seller will pay the Buyer the rent that would have been due in the absence of the period of half rent. Therefore the property will effectively produce £90,000 per annum exclusive from completion of the sale. The landlord holds a rent deposit equivalent to 6 months rent.

If you are the successful bidder, Acuitus requires a separate payment of £1,500+VAT as a buyer's administration charge payable to Acuitus Limited upon exchange of contracts. A VAT receipt will be provided upon payment.
