The modern method of auction This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction. Should you view, offer or bid on the property, your information will be shared with the Auctioneer, iamsold Limited. This method of auction requires both parties to complete the transaction within 56 days of the draft contract for sale being received by the buyers solicitor. This additional time allows buyers to proceed with mortgage finance. The buyer is required to sign a reservation agreement and make payment of a non-refundable Reservation Fee. This being 4.2% of the purchase price including VAT, subject to a minimum of £6,000.00 including VAT. The Reservation Fee is paid in addition to purchase price and will be considered as part of the chargeable consideration for the property in the calculation for stamp duty liability. Buyers will be required to go through an identification verification process with iamsold and provide proof of how the purchase would be funded.

This property has a Buyer Information Pack which is a collection of documents in relation to the property. The documents may not tell you everything you need to know about the property, so you are required to complete your own due diligence before bidding. A sample copy of the Reservation Agreement and terms and conditions are also contained within this pack. The buyer will also make payment of £300.00 including VAT towards the preparation cost of the pack, where it has been provided by iamsold. The property is subject to an undisclosed Reserve Price with both the Reserve Price and Starting Bid being subject to change.

other information Total current rent: £16,477pa

We understand that most of the tenants are in receipt of housing benefit/universal credit.

The current owner has had the property for nearly 20 years and although we believe C4 planning permission is not in place, there is historic HMO use that can be evidenced.

We have been advised that due to the changes that have been adopted by Leeds City Council regarding communal space standards, that the council have recently advised that a communal kitchen and communal lounge must be installed to the ground floor of the property. This means that the studio flat must be re incorporated into the house.

EPC energy rating is currently G although we have been advised by a Domestic Energy Assessor that this could be made to be an E or better by installing a fixed heating system.

We have been advised that the you could not go straight to a mortgage on this property and therefore the successful purchaser would need to buy with cash, or bridging finance. A mortgage could be raised later once the necessary compliance works have been carried out.
