A brand new shop at 7 Crowborough HIll has had its price slashed to a new figure of £95,000 freehold to encourage an early sale. As most of the flats above have now been sold, the developer is keen to sell the freehold as quickly as possible of this large, spacious brand new shop offering just over 900 sq ft of trading area. There are a few minor works to be completed but those will be done during the legal process and it represents an extremely good opportunity for someone who wants a good large shop in Crowborough and would like a freehold. There will be the additional benefit of some ground rent income from the flats above.
Lawson Commercial have sold the former RVL site at Squires Farm Industrial Estate at Easons Green near Uckfield. Acting for Administrators, this complex of 7 industrial buildings plus a detached office building , overall some 47,000 sq ft sitting on 8.34 acres, has been sold to a local investor/developer. It was a very, long complex transaction and we had considerable interest in the site with a number of offers and going to a best bids situation.
This highlights the improved confidence in business overall. The site required a considerable mixture of different titles to be resolved and we are very pleased that a local party has finally been successful and intends to redevelop the site over the next few years.
Lawson Commercial have been retained to act for the new owner and we will be selling off a number of the individual buildings and marketing others on both a leasehold and freehold basis. There is also an excellent prospect for any business that wants a large yard as we have over an acre of concrete surrounding some of the key buildings and this can be divided up to provide secure compounds/yards. We will have everything from a small building of around 1,100 sq ft at £100,000 freehold to something as large as 10,000 sq ft with a yard. Contact us for more information.
