Agent’s Note
The garage of Bentham Place has an apartment over which is in separate ownership and is therefore subject to a flying freehold. In the event of an emergency only, the occupants of the apartment have a right to use a fire escape staircase sited to the rear of their property which exits into Bentham Place courtyard – this right has never been exercised in our vendors’ ownership. They also have permitted access into the front side recess of the garage as this is their bin store - which is also where number 9’s bins are located.
