Under the arch to the rear of the property are several parking spaces with one allocated to this flat. Behind the allocated parking spaces is an area with washing lines for communal use. The whole overlooks the moors where walks may be enjoyed.


This property is one of 6 in this block, we understand each flat to own a share of the freehold so communal charges are decided by the freeholders and not by an outside management company.


999 years from January 1987 with £10 yearly ground rent. In a very recent change to leases, some mortgage companies require the lease to state that should the owner fail to pay ground rent to the management company (which would be a breach) the latter will give the mortgage provider 28 days notice before taking any action. This is a Catch 22 situation because this is a very new requirement so the clause is not present in a 1987 lease. The buyer will need to take a view or perhaps look into indemnity insurance.


The owners of the 6 purpose built flats each have a share of the management company CHS Ltd. Currently the members pay CHS Ltd £40 pcm which covers building insurance, maintenance and cleaning as well as contributing to a sinking fund for contingencies. Its secretary is a local solicitor who advises that on sale a deed of variation to the leases is needed should the purchaser require a mortgage and wish to rent out the flat. Individuals are responsible for their own contents insurance.


The town of Langport has a range of facilities fulfilling most day to day needs, with a variety of shops including a Tesco store, medical centre, various churches and schools for all age ranges including the well known Huish Episcopi Academy. The town of Langport itself lies only about 8 miles north of the A303 which connects to the national motorway network, and is well placed for the larger towns of Taunton with its main-line railway station (London/Paddington), Bridgwater and Yeovil with their main-line railway stations (Waterloo and Paddington). The Dorset coast is about 25 miles.
