The trigger for the overage/uplift payment will be the earlier of implementation of a planning consent or the sale of any, or all, of the land with the benefit of a planning consent.

PLANNING:

We are advised that enquiries have been undertaken by the Sellers who believe the farm buildings may be suitable for development under Permitted Development Rights for redundant farm buildings (planning use Class Q). This possibility was explored by the submission of a planning application to South Holland District Council by the sellers which was withdrawn owing to a requirement for detailed plans showing layout and elevations and the application was also withdrawn so as not to prejudice a purchaser´s particular requirement in this regard.

With regards to the house, it was considered that a purchaser may prefer to demolish the existing building and rebuild. The Sellers have made an application to South Holland District Council under application reference number H14-1147-20 for planning permission for a replacement dwelling. The current application has been suspended as the Conservation Officer at South Holland District Council states the house is considered a Non-Designated Heritage Asset. Any interested party or purchaser should pursue this if required by direct enquiry to the Planning Department at South Holland District Council.

OUTGOINGS:
The house is subject to Council Tax Band C and land drainage rates are payable to the Welland & Deepings Internal Drainage Board.

METHOD OF SALE:
The farm is offered for sale as a whole by private Treaty at a guide price of £275,000 to £300,000 subject to contract. The Selling Agents reserve the right to conclude a sale by ´Best and Final Offers´ or ´Private Auction´.

VIEWING:

VALUE ADDED TAX:
We are not aware that VAT is payable in addition to the purchase price but should, for any reason, the tax be paid before completion, then VAT will be payable at the prevailing rate, currently 20%.
