Strictly offered For Sale to the Cash Buyer only. This property is NOT currently suitable for a Mortgage. Please DO NOT enquire or ask to view the property if you require a mortgage (Thank You for your co-operation in advance).
The particular property remains desirable due to its Semi Detached Bungalow style, it’s favoured Prestwick location and the opportunity it affords the knowledgeable purchaser with access to cash only funding. Owned & occupied for many decades by the same owner (circa 80 years) the property displays glimpses of its original character with the traditional panelled internal doors, picture rails and a fine fireplace with matching semi-glazed alcove cupboards in the lounge.
The photographs and “Virtual Tour” (available to view only on our blackhay.co.uk website – please ensure you view this internal tour before arranging a viewing) clearly show that the property has suffered from a lack of internal maintenance/modernisation as its owner lived through the decades. However, it undoubtedly offers the successful purchaser an opportunity to bring the property up-to-date in the usual fashion – kitchen/bathroom/electrics/windows/decor etc …with the caveat of undertaking building works to deal with the issue that appears to cast doubt over its “Suitable for Mortgage Status”. A brief “Engineers Report” summarises that external cracking suggests there may be an issue with the internal “wall ties” corroding – in essence a further inspection is recommended to confirm this and initial informal discussions with a “trusted builder” have outlined the likely works involved/potential costs. The Sellers have opted to make an “allowance” against the stated Home Report value of £120,000 (noting the Surveyor clearly highlights that value is subject to an Engineers Report stating that the potential structure issues have been resolved to a level where the property would qualify for mortgage status on normal lending terms).
So… the property is not suitable for the novice DIY’er however it remains desirable and an opportunity for a knowledgeable purchaser (as previously stated). The current accommodation comprises, reception hall, characterful bay windowed lounge, separate kitchen, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. An undeveloped attic is featured. The gardens have been tidied to an extent however will require more work.
Clearly the property is “Sold as Seen”. Cash Purchaser is the ONLY option.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments… “After 35 years in the property industry I have sold a myriad of property styles, from walk-in condition to derelict. This particular property doesn’t phase me, however I will not be the buyer. Understandably we are not in a position to answer speculative questions from speculative buyers.
If you are a serious Cash Buyer and wish to discuss matters with a view to making an acceptable offer then we are happy to engage. The Sellers may accept a sole offer or they may look at the option of a “Closing Date” – no decision has been made and the sale progress will be continually reviewed.
Ultimately it will solely be the buyer’s decision as to whether they proceed with their particular interest in this property. The information/opinions stated are an “overview” only and any potential buyer must satisfy themselves whether this particular property is suitable for them – it is essential that they consult in detail with their solicitor prior to making an offer for this property, noting again that only Cash Buyers will be considered and the property will be Sold as Seen with No Guarantee or Warranty whatsoever.”
