It is our opinion that the property has suffered from a significant degree of movement with noticeable deflection to the front elevation. We have been informed by the current owners that historically some large conifer trees close to the front boundary of the property have been removed as part of a completed insurance claim. It is therefore our opinion that Coreys Cottage is not in a mortgageable condition and therefore any prospective buyer would need to complete the purchase with cash funds or raising finance by alternative means and not against the property.
It is our understanding that Coreys Cottage is Grade II Listed. A recent inspection by "BEAMS" has confirmed that the property is of significant historical interest and therefore cannot be demolished.
The Tenure of this property is FREEHOLD.
The Council Tax Band is "F". The amount payable for the year 2019/20 is £2540.08.
