Agents Notes
1) Our client currently owns circa twenty-five acres and plans to retain circa ten acres with the intention to split the existing title. Within the retained ten acres is a bungalow to the rear. An existing easement currently allows shared access across the driveway of Champions Farm to the bungalow, but this easement will be given up post the completed sale, and a separate access road will be created for the bungalow and grounds that will not impact on the farm.
2) Any reference to potential uses is subject to planning permission. No planning for development of the barns etc has been sought by the existing sellers and there will be no overage/uplift clauses should the buyer wish to
explore this route post purchase.
3) The private drainage/sewage system is likely to require updating with a modern system to comply with current legislation.
4) A Propertymark Toolkit has been completed by the seller providing the buyer with additional information, therefore allowing for more informed offers to be made. Please request this from the agent post viewing and if interested in purchasing the property.
