Hilary's Estate Agents are pleased to offer for sale spacious top floor apartment with the best views around! The property has a very large & spacious lounge/diner with separate modern kitchen and it also benefits from having attic storage space. Viewing is Advised.

A really fantastically positioned, top floor apartment sat beautifully on the Old Infirmary lock side - the perfect buy to let investment or first time home! Internally presented to a high standard, this superb dwelling is ideal for hospital workers, can be used as a professional base or even as a 'lock up and leave' property as it has a particularly safe feel to it.

A communal entrance hallway with post box for each property leads to the stairs which lead up to the top floor landing and the door to the property which opens into the apartment's internal hallway. The hallway provides access to two bedrooms, a three piece bathroom suite and a spacious living and dining area with open arch to a fitted kitchen.

This area is lit by three ceiling lights and has light and neutral décor and carpets. Doors lead off to both of the bedrooms, the bathroom and the spacious living area.

*Guide Prices and Reserve Prices

Each property sold is subject to a Reserve Price. The Reserve Price will be within + or - 10% of the Start Price. The Start Price, also known as a Guide Price, is issued solely as a guide so that a buyer can consider whether or not to pursue their interest. A full definition can be found within the Buyers Terms which is available to download on our SDL Auctions website.

Online Auction Registration

Every online bidder on SDL Auctions must first create an account on the online section of the SDL Auctions website - sdlauctions.co.uk/property-auctions/online/

This is a straightforward process. Starting the registration includes filling out your personal details, verifying your email address, and accepting the Online Auction ‘Terms and Conditions’. Once you have done this you will be able to search, ‘watch’ lots and download legal documents.

After starting the registration process you can come back to it to complete at a later date. We suggest completing the registration process at least 3 working days before the lot is due to end, in case you have any problems and need to contact the auctioneers.

In order to bid, you will need to be authorised for money laundering purposes. This includes uploading copies of two forms of identification and passing a anti-money laundering check. This check will leave a soft footprint on your credit report (but it should not affect your credit rating). The registration process also requires card details to be entered, however the card will not be processed unless you are the successful bidder.

Conditional Online Auction Procedure

If you are the successful bidder you will be legally obliged to buy the property for the full purchase price. You will enter into a reservation agreement with the seller and have 40 business days within which to exchange and complete. If you fail to do so, you may lose your reservation fee. During the 40 business day reservation period the sale is secure and the seller is not able to accept other offers. By placing a bid, you are authorising the auctioneer to sign the reservation agreement on your behalf.

The sale of each Lot is subject to a reservation fee of 4.8% Inc VAT (or 4.2% Inc VAT in London), subject to a minimum of £6,000 Inc VAT. The reservation fee does not contribute towards the purchase price.

We will automatically charge you a minimum fee of £6,000, unless stated otherwise above (using the payment details provided at the registration stage) if you are the successful bidder, as payment towards a reservation fee. Where applicable, you will be required to pay any outstanding amounts of the reservation fee immediately after the end of the auction, which can be paid by debit card or bank transfer.
