Moor Mead Rd, Facing Moor Mead Park, St Margarets TW1


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
Character 2 Bedroom Ground Floor edwardian maisonette in this stunning location directly overlooking the open spaces of Moor Mead Park within a brief walk of St Margarets Station & Village.

Vacant possession and no onward chain.

Lots of potential to renovate and remodel with a bright front lounge across from the Park and a roomy rear kitchen/diner plus a further utility area off and rear access out to the garden.

The property requires a general uplift but benefits from double glazing and a gas central heating system.

This property is competitively priced partly because it needs some renovation, but more because its existing lease only has about 50 years remaining. (The current lease is 99 years from 30th September 1971). For your information the current owners requested a voluntary lease extension last year and the freeholders offered to extend the lease for the sum of £105,580 on 25th September 2019. A similar offer may still be available but may now be slightly more as the lease is now a few months shorter.

The current lease length is outside the criteria of any standard mortgage product.

So you will only be able to purchase this property if (1) you have all the funds available in cash or (2) you can raise the full amount by raising equity from another property you already own or from some other source.

We are only prepared to show you the property if you are in one of these categories.

There may be a 3rd potential option for a purchaser to buy with a mortgage facility with the right to the lease extension process assigned to you, but you would have to be able to afford to pay the additional cost of the lease extension in addition to your purchase price and you should take legal and financial advice on this first. If you are hoping to buy with some sort of mortgage facility it is likely to be a specialist lender so we will only show you the property if your financial and/or legal advisor has vouched to us directly first how your purchase would be structured.
