For Sale by Modern Method of Auction; Starting Bid Price £140,000 plus Reservation Fee. An excellent opportunity for those seeking a project! Located within the sought after and popular residential area of Shiphay and conveniently situated close to local schools and public transport, with good links to Torquay, Newton Abbot and Exeter is this semi detached family home. The property has been subject to extensive fire damage to the first floor level and is in need of complete refurbishment and modernisation. However it offers excellent family accommodation and comprises a lovely sunny bay fronted lounge, large kitchen/diner, downstairs cloakroom/WC, utility area, three bedrooms and bathroom. In addition, there is a conservatory which, although currently in a state of disrepair, offers great potential to extend the property to the side and rear (subject to the normal building and planning consents). Outside there is a garden to the front with driveway offering off road parking and a very large predominantly level garden to the rear. Internal inspection is essential to fully appreciate the potential this family home has to offer.

The property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with a Traditional Auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the purchaser to exchange contracts immediately, but grant 28 days to achieve exchange of contracts from the date the buyer's solicitor is in receipt of the draft contracts and a further 28 days thereafter to complete. Allowing additional time to exchange on the property means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to put down a non-refundable Reservation Fee of 3.5% subject to a minimum of £5,000 plus VAT (£1,000) = £6,000 which secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. The buyer will be required to sign an Acknowledgment of Reservation form to confirm acceptance of terms prior to solicitors being instructed. Copies of the Reservation form and all terms and conditions can be found in the Legal Pack which can be downloaded for free from the auction section of our website or requested from our Auction Department.

Please note this property is subject to an undisclosed Reserve Price which is generally no more than 10% in excess of the Starting Bid. Both the Starting Bid and Reserve Price can be subject to change. Terms and conditions apply to the Modern Method of Auction, which is operated by iam-sold Ltd.
