The sale will be subject to overage for the benefit of the Vendors.

Overage is to be payable on a disposal or implementation of planning permission based on 50% of the net increase in value after deduction of allowable costs. The overage will be secured by a restriction on title together with a first charge over the property.

Please note that if planning permission is granted for residential development on the area hatched on the plan (Area A) the overage as set out above will apply.
