Agent’s note
The property is constructed differently to many standard modern homes, which could affect a mortgage lender’s decision to fund a purchase. Thus, it would be prudent to check with your desired lender before instructing solicitors.


Improvements
The vendors have thoughtfully enhanced the property with a range of significant improvements. All interior walls have been stripped back, cavity filled with Kingspan/Celotex 60mm insulation, and the kitchen has been extended with a newly insulated floor. The garage has been converted into a versatile utility/workshop space and a separate garden study office room. The external woodwork has been meticulously maintained and painted, and a new roof was installed in 2014. Additionally, the conservatory has been replaced, a new boiler has been fitted and the bathroom has been fully renovated. The chimney has been repaired, repointed, and flanched, while new aluminium gutters and plastic fascias have been added. The property was also rewired when the vendors moved in back in 2002, ensuring all updates are up to modern standards.

The property benefits from mains electricity, water and drainage. Also a new Worcester Bosch combination oil boiler (oil fired central heating and hot water). Broadband is also available at this property.

Reservation Fee - refundable on exchange

A reservation fee, refundable on exchange, is payable prior to the issue of the Memorandum of Sale and after which the property may be marked as Sold Subject to Contract. The fee will be reimbursed upon the successful Exchange of Contracts.

The fee will be retained by Andrew Grant in the event that you the buyer withdraws from the purchase or does not Exchange within 6 months of the fee being received other than for one or more of the following reasons:

1. Any significant material issues highlighted in a survey that were not evident or drawn to the attention of you the buyer prior to the Memorandum of Sale being issued.
2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title.
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.
4. The vendor withdrawing the property from sale.

The reservation fee, equivalent to 0.5% of the accepted offer, is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from a buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed.

Should a buyer’s financial position regarding the funding of the property prove to be fundamentally different from that declared by the buyer when the Memorandum of Sale was completed, then the Vendor has the right to withdraw from the sale and the reservation fee retained. For example, where the buyer declares themselves as a cash buyer but are in fact relying on an unsecured sale of their property.

Once the reservation fee has been paid, any renegotiation of the price stated in the memorandum of sale for any reason other than those covered in points 1 to 3 above will lead to the reservation fee being retained. A further fee will be levied on any subsequent reduced offer that is accepted by the vendor. This further fee will be subject to the same conditions that prevail for all reservation fees outlined above.
