The mooring plot is situated on the Norfolk bank of the River Waveney in the parish of Gillingham on the opposite side of the river to the market town of Beccles. Beccles is a gateway to the Norfolk Broads, with the River Waveney leading to Lowestoft, Breydon Water, The New Cut and the River Yare.

This offers an opportunity to acquire a freehold mooring plot of approximately 35ft with timber staging on the River Waveney.

The plot also benefits from vehicular access rights to a private hardcore parking area situated only approximately 200m from the mooring plot. These access and parking rights will be granted to the purchaser under a 75 year lease. Further details below.

The vendor is willing to manage the letting of the plot for the purchaser if required at 20% of the letting fee.

The mooring plot is sold freehold and is edged red on the sale plan.

The river wall immediately behind the plot, edged blue on the plan, vehicular and pedestrian access rights plus parking rights are offered leasehold. A copy of the draft lease is available for inspection in the Agents Beccles office. The principal terms are as follows:-

Term - 75 years, commencing 22nd December 2016
Ground rent - £10 per annum

There will be a service charge to cover the hardcoring of the access track and car park owned by the freeholders, plus the grass cutting of the above and the river wall access to the moorings. This will be split equally between the 20 plots using the facilities and it is anticipated this will be in the region of £100 per year.

No services are connected to the plots.

None that we are aware of apart from the ground rent and service charges previously mentioned for the leasehold area.

Should any sale of the property or any rights attached to it become a chargeable supply for the purpose of VAT such tax shall be payable by the purchaser if levied by Customs & Excise in addition
to any monies to be paid during the course of the sale.
