General Remarks, Reservations & Stipulations

Method of Sale
The land at Scalehouses is to be offered for sale by Public Auction on 17th September 2019 at 2pm in Kirkoswald Village Hall.
The Vendors and sole selling Agents reserve the right to alter or divide the property or to withdraw or exclude any of the property at any time.
The Vendor(s) reserves the right to vary any of the terms and conditions of sale or to change the method of sale without notice. For this reason, we recommend likely buyers should register their interest with the Selling Agents as soon as possible in order that they are kept abreast of any changes to the marketing of the land.

General Conditions of Sale
The property will, unless previously withdrawn, be sold subject to General and Special Conditions of Sale which may be inspected during usual office hours at the offices of the Vendor's Solicitors and the Agents during the 14 days immediately prior to the Auction.

The Conditions of Sale may also be inspected in the saleroom but they will then not be read out.

The Purchaser will be deemed to have had notice of each Condition and all bidders to have bid on the basis they have inspected the said Conditions (whether they have in fact done so or not).

A deposit of 10% of the purchase price will be payable to the Vendor's Solicitors on the fall of the Auctioneers' hammer.

Money Laundering Obligations
As part of the new Money Laundering Regulations (The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017) relating to property transactions the Selling Agents are obliged to carry out Customer Due Diligence checks on any Purchaser prior to a transaction being completed.

The land is offered for sale freehold with vacant possession upon completion.

Basic Payment Scheme (bps)
The land at Scalehouses falls partially within the Severely Disadvantaged Area and partially outwith the Severely Disadvantaged Area for bps Purposes. An application has been successfully made to establish and activate Entitlements under the Single Farm Payment Scheme and these have transferred to the bps.
A claim has been submitted under the bps in 2019 and the Vendor will retain the entirety of the 2019 bps monies.

The Entitlements for the land are included within the sale and are as follows:
Lot 1: 0.62 sda Entitlements
Lot 2: 1.26 sda Entitlements
Lot 3: 5.43 Non sda Entitlements
Lot 4: 11.77 sda Entitlements

The transfer of Entitlements will be made upon completion of the sale and in time for the Purchaser to utilise them for bps purposes in 2020. It is the responsibility of the successful Purchaser to ensure that they are eligible to acquire Entitlements under the terms of the bps. The transfer will be made in accordance with the regulations of the scheme and will be carried out by pfk Land Agency for a fee of £200 plus VAT which will be payable by each transferee. Any transfer will be undertaken as soon as bps rules and regulations permit.
A copy of the 2019 bps application will be available for inspection at the offices of the Selling Agents by prior appointment.
The Purchaser will be required to comply with the terms of the Vendor's bps application in 2019 and will indemnify the Vendor against any breaches of the conditions, particularly in respect of Cross-Compliance.
