THREE BEDROOM SEMI DETACHED HOME
AGENTS NOTE: PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE NOTES BELOW "WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A CORPORATE SALE"
An opportunity has arisen to purchase this three bedroom semi-detached home in Sixpenny Handley that requires significant updating and modernising and would be ideally suited for purchasers that are not averse to a project.
Sixpenny Handley is approximately 12 miles to Blandford Forum and 13 miles to Salisbury and offers many amenities including a doctors surgery, general store, butchers and a first school. The village also benefits from a large recreation field located directly behind the house.
The property sits on a generous size plot with a large garden to the rear and an attractive outlook over fields to the front.
The ground floor accommodation comprises entrance porch, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom, lean to and store room/workshop, whilst to the first floor there are three well-proportioned bedrooms.
The sitting room enjoys a front aspect with an attractive outlook towards the fields. There is useful under stairs storage and the floor is laid to wooden floor boards. Off the sitting room is access to an inner hall which in turn provides access to the bathroom, kitchen and lean to to the rear.
The kitchen has an inset one and half sink with drainer, under counter units and matching eye level cabinets. Additionally there is space for a washing machine. There is currently no oven or hob.
The bathroom suite comprises W.C, wash hand basin and bath with shower attachment.
The store room/workshop is a good size and has the benefit of both power and lighting.
The rear garden is an impressive size with established plants and shrubs and backs on to the village recreational ground.
The property is heated by way of oil central heating and has UPVC double glazing throughout.
Council Tax Band: B
Estate Charges: The property is likely to be on an estate that continues to be privately owned and managed by the seller. The proper and effective management of that estate involves financial outlay by the seller in respect of :
? Repair and maintenance of communal areas such as grass verges, tree works, footpaths and hard standing
? Insuring property owner's public and third-party liability
? Complying with government legislation
? Outgoings (such as sewerage, rates and taxes)
You may therefore be required to contribute a fair and reasonable proportion towards this expenditure by way of a variable service charge which is calculated on an annual basis. Charges will likely be in the region of £20 to £100 annually but may vary due to the amount of managed areas on the estate.
What to expect from a Corporate Sale
When raising enquiries: The seller will not have occupied the property and will therefore not be able to answer the usual enquiries. There will not be a fixtures and fittings form and the property is sold as seen. Buyers will be expected to satisfy themselves with the condition of the property, based upon their own inspections and surveys. The sellers Solicitor will provide all documentation they hold at the point that the draft Contract pack is issued to your Solicitor. There will be certain items, such as FENSA Certificates, historic Gas or Electric Safety Certificates etc that you may request. However, the seller will often not hold these items. You may ask the sellers Solicitor to obtain copies, but they may respond by advising that they will not be sourcing them.
Legal Title: The seller is able to provide Limited Title Guarantee only as the property has been occupied by a tenant of the seller and therefore not directly occupied by the seller. Please raise this with your Solicitor if this is an issue and it can be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
What deadlines will be put in place: A deadline of 28 days for exchange from issue of draft Contracts will be put in place. It is important to have fully instructed your Solicitor and paid for searches within 24 hours of draft Contracts being received, to minimise delays, as well as making sure your Solicitor is aware of the deadline.
