A quick update …. we met with the agent and vendors on Friday (17 July) and it looks like our offer to buy has been accepted. We are keeping everything crossed.
The previous would-be purchasers had gone as far as having a survey done. One thing that was flagged up was the septic tank (which is actually situated outside the curtilage of the station) which might not conform to modern regulations. New regs. came into force in January 2020 to do with sewage treatment plants. This is unlikely to come to anyone’s attention unless the Environment Agency (another EA!!) decides to undertake a spot-check ~ or when the property is sold. It will be a priority for any new owner to get this sorted.
Buyers Information Forms have been sent out and returned completed to the Estate Agents. ‘Under offer’ has appeared on their website this morning (Tuesday 21 July) and fingers crossed, it proceeds to ‘Sold’!
Any more news will appear here.
