And Public Rights Of Way
The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all existing wayleaves of electricity, pipelines, and all public rights of way whether specified or otherwise in particular the following will be referred to in the Tender Pack.
The footpath shown on the 1:500 block plan and stamped 'planning permission approved P04/0623 dated 24th August 2004' has been repositioned away from the development - to the Eastern side. A plan is available for inspection at the Auctioneer's Tarporley Office showing the approved new position and a copy of Cheshire County Council's confirmation notice dated 26th January 2007 is provided in the Tender Pack (this includes the plan).
The existing electricity supply serving the holding is inadequate to service the proposed development. The purchaser shall be responsible to provide a new overhead supply to the approximate position indicated on the 1:2500 location plan. The supply shall be of adequate capacity to service the 6 proposed units, the existing farmhouse, proposed garage and manège. The vendors have spoken to Scottish Power and obtained a quotation. The capacity requirement for the development and the retained farmhouse is to be assessed as to the adequacy of the proposal and if necessary a higher capacity new supply shall be provided.
Scottish Power indicated that they would require a building to be constructed near to the transformer and the vendor will grant any necessary permission for the purchaser to so construct such a building. The vendor reserves the right to maintain the existing underground cable to the farmhouse from the existing meter position in the existing buildings until a new supply is provided by the purchaser and the vendor is able to connect thereto (in the building to be provided to house the meters).

The quotation provided by Scottish Power dated 28h November 2007 was for a sum of £39,444.74 inclusive of VAT. A copy may be inspected at the Auctioneer's Tarporley Office and was for an 84KVA supply. As stated above the supply capacity shall be independently assessed as being adequate to serve the new units and the existing farmhouse, proposed garage and manège and if inadequate a larger capacity supply provided.
The vendor will grant all necessary wayleaves over retained land to enable Scottish Power to install the new supply.
The spare generator and oil engine situate in the existing building (where the electricity meters are located) will be removed by the vendors before the 30th June 2007.
The existing Water Board main is believed to terminate in the approximate position indicated on the location plan near Newtown Cottages. The purchaser shall be responsible to check the availability of an adequate main supply at this point to serve both the development and the existing farmhouse. The purchaser shall provide a new metered connection for each new dwelling and provide and lay 7 new pipes, 6 to serve the development and 1 to serve the farmhouse and land retained. The vendor will provide the pipe for the farmhouse and land retained.

The purchaser will also be granted any necessary drainage easement to connect 'clean roof and surface water' drainage into any outfall drain or ditch on retained land and shall be granted all necessary easements to install the same. The purchaser shall connect the 'clean water' drainage pipes serving the farmhouse and grant the vendor the right to connect any new 'clean water' drainage pipes into any drain provided in the future. The purchaser shall provide any necessary pipe to connect the clean water drainage from the farmhouse into the new system.

- Contaminated Land Survey
As stipulated within condition 'Number 6' of the approved planning consent, the site requires the completion of a contaminated land survey and written approval from the Local Planning Authority before the development commences.
A structural survey was commissioned by our clients and was undertaken by Mr D Huxtable from Huxtable Hodgson, 100 Brook Street, Chester, CH1 3DU on 12th February 2004. The report summarises:
It is clear in our opinion that the building is in overall good condition and suitable for conversion without the need o undertake substantial rebuilding or repair to the external walls, But we would at minimum propose to rectify the most noticeable external wall distortions consistent with repair works undertaken during Barn Conversions
Other general repairs would in our view be largely discretionary to address areas of local weathering followed by repointing throughout.
A copy of this structural inspection report may be inspected at Wright Manley, 63 High Street, Tarporley, CW6 0DR, or a copy obtained upon payment of £35.25 inclusive of VAT.
The development shall only proceed in accordance with the terms set within this report and no further demolition or rebuilding work shall take place without prior consent from the Local Planning Authority, in accordance to satisfy condition 'number 4' on the approved planning permission.
The purchaser shall be responsible for all boundaries where indicated by an inward 'T'.

Any further amendments or changes to the boundaries shall not be undertaken without further consent from the Local Planning Authority.
The purchaser shall erect a 9 x 6' 0 high Old Cheshire Brick wall between Points A-B on the sale plan prior to occupation of any of the approved units.
The vendor reserves a right of access to the farmhouse and land retained until the erection of the new wall (A-B) and specifically reserves the existing right of way for a period up to 31st October 2008.
The approved plans were prepared for the purpose of obtaining planning permission only. The vendor gives no guarantee that the proposals shown comply with the current building regulation requirements.
