Additional information

During the marketing of these properties we have been asked to clarify some issues. Below we set our clients response to these:

Planning

It should be appreciated that our Clients are the Housing Department of Kettering Borough Council. Although the Council are also the planning authority, both departments operate independently. It is therefore important that you obtain your own independent planning advice.

However, the Housing department have been told;

"I can find no planning history linking the existing parking to specific properties and as such in planning terms their use isn’t conditional of the onsite parking being in place.
If anyone wanted to increase the number of flats within the front site a planning application would be required and parking would be something that would be considered. We would look at the difference between the existing number and units and the proposed rather than all the units afresh."

Asbestos

We are informed that there are no asbestos reports in respect of either building in their entirety.
It will be the responsibility of prospective purchasers to undertake their own asbestos reports if required.

Gas

Each of the individual flats have a gas supply, many of the meters have been removed and are stored in the property. It should be possible for a Gas Safe Registered Engineer to re-install the meters but it will be the responsibility of the purchaser to check all the meters are present and suitable for re-use.

Land Registry Title

The two buildings, together with Nos 1-3 William Street are currently contained within one single Land Registry Title. When the property is sold the Title will be split in 2 with the Council retaining ownership of Nos 1-3 William Street, a section of garden land and the existing parking area (a plan is available from the selling agents).
The Council will not be splitting the Title any further, any purchaser requiring the titles of the individual flats to be separate units will have to make the appropriate arrangements after legal completion has occurred.
