The Accommodation - From the street we walk into a communal hall with understairs cupboard housing the electric meters for all the apartments. Turning right we walk through its own front door directly into the sitting/bedroom. This has a window to the front, tv point, fireplace and a storage heater. Through into the inner hall with storage heater, left into the shower room with toilet, wash basin and walk in shower. Back into the inner hall and into the kitchen.

The parking is an allocated space to the rear of 12 Barn Street, less than 2 minutes walk from the front door.

Tenure, Services And Local Authority - Share of Freehold. The freehold is held by the London Road Management Co, of which the owner holds a 25% share. The lease is for 99 years from 1985 with a ground rent of 40 per annum. A service charge is currently paid at 60.00 per month to cover maintenance and insurance. There is currently 3,000 in the fund (September 1st 2016). The service charge of 60 per month is a temporary increase of 200%, which was agreed at the last AGM of the Management Company, in view of a significant programme of repair and maintenance works to be carried out on the property. These works include: repointing of all areas which require it, repairs to the chimney, repainting of all external woodwork, and overhaul and repair of all rainwater goods. This programme of works has recently received Listed Building Consent from Wiltshire County Council, and will be commenced shortly. The total cost will be in the region of 12 - 13,000, of which the leaseholders will be asked to contribute between them 10,000, and the Management Company will pay the remainder. The contribution to be paid by the leaseholder of flat 1 will therefore be a maximum of 2,000. Once the works have been completed, it is likely that the service charges will revert to their previous levels, which in the case of flat number 1 is 20 per month.

The property is Band A, 2016/2017 1109.50 Wiltshire Council. Trowbridge, Wiltshire. BA14 8JN. 0300 456 0100.
