SALE METHOD - The freehold of 117/117A Bewdley Road, Kidderminster is to be sold by Public Auction, subject to prior sale, special conditions and reserve, on Tuesday 6 March, 2018 at Hogarths Stone Manor Hotel, Stone, Kidderminster at 6pm. The sale is being handled by the Stourport on Severn office of Phipps & Pritchard with McCartneys LLP on 01299 822060 or


VIEWINGS - Please contact the sole selling agents but also please note that as a mixed use building we cannot guarantee that both properties will be available for inspection at any one time due to the separate tenancy agreements in force.

BACKGROUND - Our clients are property developers and bought this property in 1989 having refurbished it at the time and it has been let ever since. The property is now offered for sale as part of our clients planning for retirement and is in the market to be sold straight away sensibly priced to attract immediate interest from able buyers!

POSITION - The property has a prominent fringe of town position, next to the ring road. Other nearby occupiers include The China Lodge Restaurant, William Hill and a long established Fish & Shop. A communal carpark also serves the parade of shops and albeit a communal area there are 20 plus spaces which is naturally a big attraction both for customers and tenants alike.

THE ROOF - Having been re-covered in 2013.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) And Personal Tax Implications - Since the introduction of the stamp duty surcharge in April 2016, a buyer of a mixed-use property such as this will pay significantly less in tax than someone purchasing solely residential buy-to-let. Firstly, this is because mixed use properties incur commercial property stamp duty and not the residential property tax where the surcharge is in place. Based on the guide price range of this particular property then in fact the SDLT charge would actually be ZERO. In contrast, a traditional residential buy to let based upon the guide price would rack up over £3,000 in SDLT! Again in respect of mixed use property for those looking to purchase with a mortgage, you will also be hit less hard by the mortgage tax relief changes that have now begun to affect Landlords of solely residential properties from April 2017. This is because the commercial part of the property will be exempt from the changes. This information is provided only in the spirit of trying to be helpful and therefore does not constitute formal advice from McCartneys LLP in any way. We as agents give no guarantee or warranty whatsoever and prospective purchasers' should most definitely seek clarification from their own Financial Advisor/Account/Solicitor relative to their own personal circumstances.

GOOD YIELD - Based upon the current combined rental income of £11,160 then an example purchase price of £115,000 this would generate a very healthy return of 9.7% exclusive of purchase costs! Prospective purchasers must make up their own minds upon the following but there might also be margin to increase the rent figures therefore making the return better still!

VALUE ADDED TAX - We understand that the sale WILL NOT attract VAT.


The Shop

This is Let to Geekobytes Computer Shack albeit the lease actually specifies names of individuals and not the trading business. We understand that the most recent lease expired in 2015 and therefore by agreement with our Vendor Client/the Landlord then the Tenant is 'holding over'. The passing rent is £6,000 per annum.

The Flat

The flat is let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement at £430.00 per calendar month. The same tenant has been in occupation since 24 July, 2015 at the same rent as today - £430 per calendar month.
