Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

LOCATION
The property is situated in the centre of the village of Hanmer which is well known for the 45 acre mere which the property overlooks. This is a picturesque setting in an attractive village which has a Church, Primary School and a traditional village feel. The location is ideal for local trade and also passing trade from tourists and visitors.

Hanmer is approximately 6 miles from Whitchurch, 12 mils from Wrexham and 1 mile from the A525 Whitchurch to Wrexham road. The setting is one that will appeal to purchasers looking for a typical Village Store and Post Office. The road connections provide good links to the nearby towns but the location just off the A539 gives a rural environment.

DESCRIPTION

TERMS
The business has been established so long that it is impossible to give the exact date when it started but it has been run by the existing owners since the beginning of 2014. They have grown the business from a traditional village store and post office selling groceries, newspapers, alcohol, tobacco, confectionary and running the post office to include hot and cold takeaway food snacks which is an increasing part of the business.

The post office salary is an additional source of income and the detailed information regarding the business can be made available after an inspection of the property has been carried out. The transfer of the post office is subject to satisfactory applications.

The interior of the shop was refitted in 2014 and this has had an impact on both the appearance of the business and turnover. Following the installation of a kitchen the owners have developed the business to include homemade cakes, pies, sandwiches and treats. Festive seasonal sales are maximised by the sales of toys and gift hampers. The expansion of the business has been a success story and there is still scope for further expansion. The owners have reluctantly decided to sell for personal family reasons due to the birth of twin sons.

Tenure
The premises are held on a 15 year lease from 24th June 2014. The current rent is £2,000 per annum exclusive for the shop and living accommodation. There is provision for rent reviews at 5 yearly intervals but the rent cannot increase by more than 2% per review. The tenant is responsible for internal repairs, decorations and the reimbursement of the insurance premium for the property.

OUTGOINGS
The rateable value given on the Valuation Office Agency website is £2,425 based on the 2010 rating list. The draft valuation based on the 2017 listing is £2,600. The current owner does not pay business rates due to being a small rural business. Interested parties should make their own enquiries to the Valuation Office.

VAT
All figures quoted are exclusive of VAT which may be payable under the prevailing rate.

LEGAL COSTS
The buyer will be responsible for the Landlords costs in connection with the assignment of the lease otherwise each party is to be responsible for their own legal costs in connection with this matter.

OTHER
Fixtures & Fittings
