FOR SALE BY ONLINE AUCTION. Terms and conditions apply.

Duckworths Estate Agent are pleased to be offering an exciting opportunity to acquire a large multi-let building within Accrington town centre. The property occupies a prime corner position on Broadway and Union Street and briefly comprises four tenanted units, across basement, ground, first and second floors. The property is currently fully let, but Barclays Bank have exercised their withdrawal notice and so the bank unit will be vacant from January 2022.

The subject property is very prominently positioned along Union Street and Broadway, Accrington. Well situated in a prominent town centre position, the property is between the bus station and nearby Accrington train station. The location is expected to be a major route of high foot traffic in Accrington for years to come. It is close to all major town centre amenities, high streets and pedestrian zones.

We are advised that the units are let on the following agreements:

5 Union Street (Barclays bank) Let by way of a 20 year FRI lease from 15th January 2007, granted to Barclays Bank PLC at a current rent of £38,600 per annum, which is subject to upwards only rent reviews in December 2018 and 2023. Barclays have exercised their break clause from January 2022.

1 Broadway Let by way of a 3 year IRI lease from 7th September 2021 at a rent of £6,000 per annum, granted to an individual.

3 Broadway Let by way of a 3 year IRI lease from 18th September 2020 at a rent of £4,560 per annum, granted to an individual.

5-7 Broadway Let by way of a 3 year FRI lease from 18th September 2020 at a rent of £5,700 per annum, granted to an individual.

This combines to a total annual income of £54,860.

Sizing as follows: 5 Union Street (bank): 440.39sqm (4,740sqft) 1 Broadway (sandwich shop): 32.39sqm (349sqft) 3 Broadway (barber shop): 41.40sqm (446sqft) 5-7 Broadway (convenience store): 89.32sqm (961sqft) Total NIA: 603.5sqm (6,496sqft)

This property offers a unique opportunity to convert a large portion of the property under permitted development rights, into residential accommodation. A high yielding proposal would require reconfiguring some of the commercial units to offer a two bedroom apartment and a 5-bedroom HMO.

Further information on this proposal can be provided upon request.
