Full description

Situated on the outskirts of the village of Bobbing close to the A249 which allows easy access to the M2 and M20 motorways as well as the Isle of Sheppey.

The premises comprise a range of former farm buildings which have been converted to a high standard to provide offices, together with a purpose built workshop and yard.

The majority of the site is let to established building contractor, B.W.May & Sons Ltd (formed in 1971) and acts as their administrative headquarters and working yard.

Main Office Building
Single storey brick built converted farm outbuildings arranged to provide seven offices, board room, two store rooms, reception, filing room, staff cloakroom and kitchen.

Purpose built unit of brick and profiled metal cladding arranged to provide two workshop areas with separate offices and canteen room on the first floor.

Car and lorry parking area.

Let under the terms of a 25 year lease from 17th April 2006 at an initial rental of £72,000 per annum with rent reviews every five years and no break clauses.

The lease is effectively fully repairing and insuring with the landlord insuring and then recovering the costs from the tenant as ‘insurance rent’. A copy of the lease will be available for inspection at the Auctioneer's Office. Tel: 01622 608400.

In addition to the site let to B. W. May & Sons Ltd there is additional land extending to approximately 0.24 hectares (0.59 acres) and located to the rear of the joinery workshop.
Planning Permission was granted by Swale Borough Council on this land under ref: SW/03/0849, dated 3rd September 2003, for the construction of a rear extension to the joinery workshop (creating an additional 430 sq.m. workshop space), subject to conditions.

This Planning has lapsed, however, it is considered that the land may offer potential for the construction of a detached industrial workshop or office building, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.

Interested applicants are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority, Swale Borough Council. Tel: 01795 417850. Website:

Strictly by confirmed prior appointment with the Auctioneer's Office. Under no circumstances are prospective buyers to contact the tenant directly.

May & Sons Ltd’s lease which allows the freeholder a right of way in order to access the land to the rear of the joinery workshop.
