The purchaser will, on completion, make a contribution of 2.5% plus VAT of the purchase price, subject to a minimum of £5,000 plus VAT, towards the Vendor’s legal costs.




The site is considered to have development potential subject to the necessary consents. A planning application was submitted for a scheme detailing the construction of 45 houses and associated parking and landscaping (Application Number: 13/05023/MAO). Whilst the planning report recommended the scheme, the Planning Committee refused consent on the 20th February 2014 as the development of the site would result in the loss of land used for recreational purposes and as open space and would therefore be contrary to Policy OS3 of the Replacement Unitary Development Plan. All documentation regarding the application can be viewed online on the CBMDC Planning Portal. Alternatively interested parties should consult direct with the Local Planning Office, City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, 3rd Floor, Jacobs Well, Bradford BD1 5RW. Tel: 01274 434605.


The site is subject to a clawback provision all as detailed in the Legal Pack.


VAT at the prevailing rate is payable in addition to the gavel price.

* Guide Prices and Reserves

Guide Price: An indication of the seller’s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
Reserve Price: the seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
Additional Non Optional Fees and Costs: in addition to the sales price please be aware that the buyer will be liable in addition for various non optional additional fees and costs. Please refer to the Guidance Document where more information is available.
