PLANNING POTENTIAL AND STRUCTURAL SURVEY
A Structural Survey has been carried out on the Property and a copy is attached and any potential purchasers are deemed to be in full knowledge of its contents.
If any potential tenderers intend to demolish the house, as suggested by the Survey, they must make their own enquiries of the Planning Department at South Lakeland District Council, South Lakeland House, Lowther Street, Kendal, LA9 4UF. Tel: 01539 733333.
The LandThe land extends to 2.59 acres/1.05 hectares of meadow, being SD2281, pt 8813.
There are also 1.98 sheep rights on Kirkby Moor (CL0052).
BASIC PAYMENT SCHEME
The land is registered with the Rural Payments Agency and the Entitlements are included in the sale. The Sellers will not claim the payment for 2021, as there is insufficient hectarage but, if completion of the sale takes place before the deadline of 17th May and the Buyer is eligible, the Buyer may make the claim and retain all the payment for 2021.
Potential purchasers should be aware that, in order to claim payment against Entitlements, they must own or occupy at least 5 hectares of eligible land. The Entitlements and land will be transferred, for BPS and Rural Payment Agency purposes by NWA Professional at the appropriate time and the transferee will pay the sum of £125 plus VAT per lot in order for them to register the transfer.
The property is freehold and vacant possession will be given on completion.
