To be sold for the first time since new! An excellent opportunity to improve and with no onward chain…

3 good-sized bedrooms, bathroom, large hallway, downstairs cloakroom, lounge/ dining room, kitchen, store, workshop, detached garage, south facing gardens, long driveway.

A charming semi-detached house, understood to have been built around 1948 and having been occupied by the same family since new. The property benefits from a long front garden, offering the potential for lots of parking if required, and has a secluded south facing rear garden. Many properties in the area have been extended, so it may well be that this property offers similar potential, subject to any necessary consents.

The property is now in need of renovation and modernisation and has therefore been priced accordingly.

Set within an established part of Whitley, opposite the John Madejski Academy and under a mile from Junction 11 of the M4 and Green Park, where a new railway station is expected to open next year.

There are local shops nearby and bus services in the area run into Reading town centre where there is a wide range of leisure and retail facilities and a main line railway station.

There is an informal video tour and 360-degree virtual tour available online.

Procedure for written offers by Sealed Bid

We have been instructed by our client to obtain written offers from any interested parties. We shall follow the procedure recommended by RICS in their Residential Estate Agency Standards. Please read the following points carefully as they form the basis under which we may accept your offer.
* Your best and final offer is to be received in writing no later than 12 noon on Monday 25th October 2021 in a sealed envelope posted or delivered to Martin & Pole Estate Agents, 16 The Parade, Silverdale Road, Earley, Reading, RG6 7NZ. Please write your name and address on the reverse of the envelope and mark it “Not to be opened before 12 noon on Monday 25th October 2021”. This is to prevent us accidentally opening the letter beforehand and compromising the confidentiality of the proceedings.
* Any conditions on which your offer is made are to be specified.
* Please confirm your solicitor’s details.
* Please confirm your financial arrangements and include supporting documentation (e.g. copies of mortgage agreements in principle, evidence of deposit or cash funds etc). It is unlikely we will accept an offer without supporting documentation.
* If you are selling a property please include information about the sale including the estate agent.
* Please confirm whether your offer is subject to survey or not. If it is and your offer is accepted, then the surveyor is to be instructed within 2 working days and the survey is to be carried out within 10 working days of acceptance of your offer.
* If your offer is accepted, we will expect you to exchange contracts within 28 days of your solicitor receiving the contract from the seller’s solicitors.
* Any offers sent by email or not in a sealed envelope will not be considered and may invalidate any offer that is then received from you in a sealed envelope. This is to prevent a potential breach of confidentiality.
* Only offers of a non-variable nature will be considered.
* If your offer is accepted you will be required to visit our office with photographic identification and proof of address.
* If your offer is accepted we will not accompany visits with contractors for the purposes of obtaining quotations or making plans for future works. This should be done once you have bought the property.
* The vendor reserves the right not to accept the highest, or any, offer made.

Data Protection

The information and any documentation you provide will be held securely and used to discuss your offer with the seller. It shall not be shared with any third party. Any documentation shall be securely destroyed when no longer required (normally at exchange of contracts by the successful buyer). Therefore please only send copies of documents, not originals.

Explanatory Note

Whenever several parties want to buy the same house we need to follow a procedure that allows each party an equal and fair opportunity and prevents a bidding war. “Sealed bids” is the industry recommended procedure for doing this. The reason we ask you to include financial information within your offer is because we cannot allow a situation to arise where we accept what appears to be the best offer only to discover afterwards that the buyer is not able to proceed.

Viewings and Coronavirus: We request that you look at all the marketing material including the video and/ or virtual tour, as well as familiarise yourself with the location prior to requesting a viewing. Please note only a maximum of 2 adults from the same household will be allowed to view. You will still be required to wear a face covering, sanitise your hands or put on clean gloves.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We have endeavoured to ensure the details of this property are accurate, however all measurements are approximate and none of the statements contained in these particulars are to be relied on as statements of fact. They do not constitute any part of an offer or contract. We have no authority to make any representation or give any warranty in relation to this property. We have not tested the services, appliances or fittings referred to in the details. School catchment zones are verified as far as possible with the local authority but cannot be guaranteed and may change in the future, nor do they guarantee a place in the school. We have not checked whether any extension or alteration to the property complies with planning or building regulations. Distances are ‘as the crow flies’. We recommend that each of the statements is verified and the condition of the property, services, appliances and fittings is investigated by you or your advisers before you finalise your offer to purchase or you enter a contractual commitment. Martin & Pole may, at your request, recommend to you a mortgage advisor or solicitor. The mortgage advisor will pay us a referral fee equivalent to 30% of any fee they earn. We do not receive a referral fee from the solicitor but have traditionally received a gift at Christmas. 9/9/2021 5:36 PM
