The intending purchaser must satisfy himself by inspection or otherwise as to the correctness of each of the statements contained in the particulars.

PLANS, AREAS AND SCHEDULES These are based on the Ordnance Survey and are for reference only. The purchaser shall be deemed to have satisfied himself as to the description of the property, and any error or misstatement shall not annul the sale or entitle any party to compensation in respect thereof.

FLOOR PLANS Floor and land Plans are for illustrative purposes only, not to scale. All measurements and distances are approximate.

METHOD OF SALE By informal tender.

INGOING VALUATION There will be no ingoing valuation.

RESERVATION OF RIGHTS In the event that following tenders there are a number which have little difference between them the vendor reserves the right to put the property up for sale by private auction with invitations being delivered to the highest tenderers to attend. The vendors would rather carry out such a process than enter a Dutch auction situation.

SIGNING OF CONTRACT The successful purchaser will be required to sign a contract within four weeks of acceptance of their tender. To facilitate this timetable the vendors' solicitors will have prepared a sale pack prior to the tender process. Searches will have been carried out. Purchasers will be required to pay approximately £150-£200 per lot plus VAT to cover the costs of such searches.
