Goodwin Racing Expands Call Centre

During the Lockdown Goodwin Racing expanded their call centre into their betting shop next to Boots in Bell Walk Uckfield. This proved so successful they decided to close the shop and to move the expanded call centre to alternative premises.

Having just missed out on the 1st floor Suite at 4a Kingfisher Court recently let to Parfitt Cresswell, the ground floor suite then became available, a suite of some 1,600 sq ft, slightly smaller than 1st floor because of cloakrooms/stairs and they were able to secure this and move in within a very short space of time.

Their former premises next to Boots are now available and comprise a very spacious shop of some 1,245 sq ft which is well fitted throughout including air conditioning and has rear access and car parking.

The shop is held on an existing lease from 2016 with the useful benefit of a tenant’s only break clause in Dec 2021. The current rent is £21,000 pa.  This is a good smart shop in a prominent position. Call now for full details.

Solicitors Open New Office in Uckfield

Parfitt Cresswell, a firm of solicitors with 8 offices in the South including Windsor, Haywards Heath, Fulham, Edenbridge and Tunbridge Wells have secured new office premises in Uckfield at Kingfisher Court on the Bellbrook Estate.

The firm trades under a number of trading names including Colemans, Max Barford, Keene Marsland and Jevons Riley & Pope. We are delighted to welcome this new firm to the Town.

They have taken over the former Acuity accountants offices at 4a Kingfisher Court which comprises just under 2,000 sq ft. It was an interesting deal because it was negotiated during the Lockdown and shows, even in these strange and uncertain times, there is confidence in the Town long term and still demand for offices of quality in good locations

From Flowers To Estate Agents

After Lockdown eased Florist Miss Bloomsbury decided not to reopen at 166 High Street, Uckfield. The Proprietor will continue to trade from home as she did successfully during Lockdown and anyone wanting flowers can still contact Miss Bloomsbury on the usual number.

Lawson Commercial were instructed to find a new occupier for the shop which has an attractive double frontage display and comprises 560 sq ft + a rear store.  It was available on a new lease at £12,500 pa. 

We had a lot of strong interest and quickly agreed a letting to View Homes Sussex Ltd who will be opening a new estate agency at the premises. With all the new housing schemes being proposed throughout the Wealden area it is not surprising that a new estate agents feels there is potential in the Town and they will be open for business shortly.

Lockup Shop In Prominent Uckfield High Street Position

A great opportunity for a small business or a startup to acquire a lockup shop in a prominent position in Uckfield High Street.

The premises are almost opposite Pizza Express. With a sales area of 560 sq ft plus a rear store the shop is available on a new 6 year lease at a rent of £12,500 pa.

There are not that many opportunities to find a small lockup shop in this busy High Street and we already have considerable interest.  It is well positioned and with a rateable value being under £12,000 there should be no rates to pay for a qualifying occupier.

New Terms Available On Uckfield Shop With Flat

New terms are being offered on 93 High Street, Uckfield which comprises a shop with flat over and which is now available to rent as well as on a freehold basis.

The property comprises a large spacious shop of over 800 sq ft on the ground floor with a most delightful 3-bed self-contained character flat above. The flat is accessed from the rear and includes an attractive garden which faces west plus there are 2 car parking spaces.

It is unfortunate that we had a buyer for this property just as the lockdown was announced and, despite having arranged finance, they have reluctantly decided not to proceed. This property is thus back in the market. Now, not only can the property be bought but it can alternatively be rented on a new lease at £25,000 pa to include both the shop and the flat. The Landlord is prepared to allow sub letting of the flat.

So a really great opportunity. Call now for more details and to view.
