Agents Note 1: Please note, the floor plans and related drawings shown may not be to scale.
Agents Note 2: The purchaser will be responsible for paying the relevant Affordable Housing and Community Infrastructure Levy charges, which are believed to amount to approximately £30,000 per plot. They will also be required to reimburse the vendor for a share of the security fencing, at a cost of approximately £1000 per plot.
Agents Note 3: The vendors have paid for a 10 year structural guarantee through CRL which applies to the whole site. It may be possible to transfer this to a purchaser upon payment of the relevant premium (understood to be around £2,000 per plot).
Agents Note 4: There is currently an amount of top soil on the site which has resulted from the works that have already taken place, and is ready to use for the front and rear gardens to each plot.
Agents Note 5: Health and Safety - The site is currently enclosed by security fencing with padlocked gates. Agreement and contracts have been approved with Aedis and each plot will be required to contribute around £700 towards H & S inspections.
Agents Note 6: Sporting Rights - The Hopton Court Estate has historic sporting rights over the three building plots, similar to other houses in Hopton Wafers, which allows the hunting and shooting of game, as well as fishing. However, the 1980's Highways Act forbids any shooting with a gun within 50ft. of a public road, thereby excluding all the front gardens of the three plots. Health and Safety legislation would likely also prevent any shooting in the rear gardens. These Sporting Rights have never been exercised over the ground comprising the three plots or within the gardens of other houses in the village, to the vendors knowledge. Further details and a copy of the clause can be provided by the vendors.
Agents Note 7: Water Easement - There is a water pipe with mains supply serving Hopton Court, which runs parallel to the public road within 10ft. of the road surface and around the perimeter of the site parallel to the boundary with the Severn Trent Water Works within Plot 3. This is a historic easement from 1977, although there is no documentation on the Hopton Court Estate deeds. The pipe will not interfere with any foundation or construction works shown on the detailed plans. Further details can be provided by the vendors. A Unilateral Notice for an easement has been served on the Land Registry by the Hopton Court Estate and the vendors have indicated their willingness to negotiate an easement to be registered at the Land Registry. Further information can be provided by the vendors.
