Property description

For Sale by Modern Method of Auction. Exciting opportunity to convert a Grade II Listed Church Hall set in the beautiful village of Romaldkirk into two residential dwellings with off street parking.

The Property
Church Hall currently comprises two large rooms that have previously been used for the local community. The Hall has a small kitchen area in the entrance to the property and a WC lying off the first room with wash hand basin.

The School Hall’s grounds are bounded by a stone wall to three sides and a mature hedge to the southern boundary.

There is currently a stone built garage lying to the north of the School Hall which is to be demolished as part of the planning to create off street parking.

The property has mains electricity, water and a private septic tank. The property also currently has electric storage heaters.

Please note that the roof on the extension to the rear of the property has collapsed. Internal access to this area is prohibited.

Planning Permission and Listing Building consent has been granted for the conversion of the building into two, one bedroom dwellings with allocated parking spaces to the north of the property. Permission was granted on 20th March 2020 with the planning expiring three years from this date.

Further details can be found on Durham County Council’s Planning Portal, reference DM/20/00207/FPA.

Viewings are strictly by prior appointment with George F. White.

Modern Method of Auction
This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the buyer to exchange contracts immediately; however, from the date the draft contract for sale is received by the Buyer's solicitor, the buyer has 56 days in which to complete the transaction; whilst using every endeavour to exchange contracts within the first 28 days. Allowing the additional time to exchange contracts means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction, or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to make payment of a non-refundable Reservation Fee of 4.2% of the final agreed sale price including VAT - this is subject to a minimum of £6,000.00 including VAT - which reserves the property from sale by securing the transaction and takes the property off the market. The Reservation Fee is paid in addition to the final negotiated selling price. A non-refundable Buyer Information Pack fee of £300.00 including VAT towards the preparation cost of the pack, if the Buyer Information Pack has been produced and provided by iamsold. The Documents in the pack can then be used by your solicitor during the conveyancing stage of the purchase. It is recommended that you view the Buyer Information Pack before agreeing to your purchase. Fees paid to the Auctioneer may be considered as part of the chargeable consideration for the property and be included in the calculation for stamp duty liability. Further clarification for this must be sought from your legal representative. The buyer will be required to sign a Reservation Agreement to confirm acceptance of the terms prior to solicitors being instructed. A sample copy of the Reservation Agreement and all terms and conditions can be found in the Buyer Information Pack, which can be downloaded from the auction section of our website, or requested from our Auction Department. Please note this property is subject to an undisclosed reserve price which is generally no more than 10% in excess of the starting bid, both the starting bid and reserve price can be subject to change. Terms and conditions apply to the Modern Method of Auction, which is operated by the Great North Property Auction powered by iamsold.
