54a English Street extends over a side archway leading to the rear of the properties through which there will be a pedestrian right of way to access a small enclosed rear yard. The rear yard has not been fenced off separately at the time of preparation of these sale particulars but will be fenced by the vendor prior to completion of the sale. The archway through the property will remain in the vendor’s ownership subject to a pedestrian right of way in favour of the buyer and we understand the section of flat 54a lying over the archway, would become a flying freehold but this is to be confirmed by our client’s solicitors. Access to the rear will be for bin access, emergency use and maintenance. There will be a clause in the contract ensuring all bins are kept within the rear yard and in a clean and tidy manner but more detail can be given on viewing.
