Property description

Leasehold Business For Sale: £35,000


The Post Office enjoys a prominent location in Lyme's principal shopping street just a short walk to the seafront and within easy access of the town centre amenities.

It occupies the main front section on the ground floor of an imposing 3-storey building with a 'Georgian' style facade part clad in dressed stone.

To the rear in the former Sorting Office is a popular cafe with a courtyard garden and sale of interesting bric-a-brac, vintage and curios - these businesses are separately owned and have their own side access in addition to useful direct footfall between them and the Post Office.

The Business:

This is a purpose built Post Office building which it is probably the longest established business in Lyme Regis. There is a strong local clientelle enhanced by the many visitors to the town (throughout the year these days). In addition to the Post Office is the sale of stationery, books and cards.

If a purchaser had an alternative use for the extensive retailing space then there is a great deal of scope (Landlord's consent would be required and it should not compete with the 2 businesses in the former Sorting Office).

The current turnover is approaching £75,000 p.a. (just below the VAT threshold).

The Lease:

We understand the Landlord would agree to a new lease at a rental of £14,950 p.a. (£1,245.83 pcm).
Plus incidental costs of water, alarm and buildings insurance currently £78.49 pcm.
The incoming tenant will be responsible for the Landlord's reasonable legal costs for the preparation of the lease.
