Block 4 is located on Third Road and the property is formed in a terrace of single storey workshops, with steel truss framed roofs in profiled metal sheeting, and brick walls. Each unit benefits from office space and a fenced and gated yard to the rear and there is a provision of shared car parking spaces at the front of the terrace.
There are six units available to companies / Directors to purchase for owner occupation.
Unit 1 lies at the end of the terrace and a refurbishment is underway. In addition to the standard ground floor office content, Unit 1 also has two small office/rooms at first floor level. With the absence of first floor space, Units 2,3,4,5 & 6 are slightly smaller than Unit 1. Each workshop area has new lighting and a roller shutter loading door opening onto the private yard. The loading doors have a height and width of approx. 9 ¼ ft. (2.83 m.) and 11 ½ ft. (3.5 m).
The properties are available to lease on standard, full repairing and insuring terms for periods to be agreed. The annual rent for Unit 1 is £26,000 per annum and Units 2,3,4,5 & 6 are available for £25,000 per annum. Each unit's contribution to the estate service charge is estimated at £0.35 per sq. Ft. Per annum. Rent and service charge are usually payable quarterly in advance, but monthly payments may be considered. VAT is applicable.
Our clients are also willing to sell their Heritable (Freehold) interest in each of these properties for a price of £250,000 + VAT per unit. The sales will be subject to a service agreement for the upkeep of the common areas.
Unit 1 has a Rateable Value (rv) of £19,000 and the rate poundage for 2020/21 has been set at £0.49. Therefore, business rates payable to South Lanarkshire Council for the twelve months from 1st April 2020 to 31st March 2021 would be £9,310.
RVs for Units 2,3,4,5 & 6 will need to be re-assessed by the local Assessor but based on similar units in Block 4, we estimate a rv of £17,100. If correct, because of the Small Business Bonus (sbb) scheme, an eligible occupier could claim 25% relief from Business rates. In 2020/21, this could have resulted in a saving of just over £2,000.
