Special conditions of sale/auction information pack is available online. It is assumed that the Purchaser will have made all necessary enquiries prior to the auction.

Agent's Notes
1) Question 7.1 in the Property Information Form has been answered incorrectly. The northern part of the plot is lower lying and has flooded in the past, however It is understood that the barn itself has never flooded.
2) The property is sold together with and subject to the rights set out in the Copy Transfer of Bowerings Cottage, including a right of way. The seller's reply to section 8 of the Property Information Form is therefore inaccurate and needs to be read in the light of the Copy Transfer that forms part of the Auction Pack.
