Retail site in West End sold

Acting on behalf of joint liquidators Chantrey Vellacott DFK, Goadsby are pleased to announce the successful sale of the plot of land adjacent to Haskins Garden Centre off Mansbridge Road in West End.

The enclosed site, comprising approximately 0.25 acres was, in the majority, laid to hardcore and benefited from a timber retail unit.

Ben Welch of Goadsby comments: ‘This was an interesting instruction. As the last known authorised use of the site was camping and sales, we therefore had consent for A1 retail, this greatly increasing the attractiveness of the site.

We received a great deal of interest from a wide range of owner occupiers and local property investors and were pleased to secure in excess of the £225,000 asking price, within a short space of time.

This transaction suggests there is strong demand for property for sale, not only from owner occupiers but also from investors as the market begins to recover’.

Terry Evans from Chantrey Vellacott comments: ‘We are delighted with the outcome and the price achieved by the sale, especially after an attempt to dispose of the property, by the directors, by Auction was to no avail. The proceeds enabled the secured creditor to be repaid in full, with a surplus’.
