We are pleased to announce that Daniells Harrison Chartered Surveyors have just completed the sale of a former care home in Hindhead, Surrey.
Richard Huffer and Chris Daniells of DHCS were appointed LPA receivers of the property.
Whilst the property had originally been used as a care home it was no longer deemed viable to be used for this purpose as it was considered too small.
When the property was initially marketed there was a good deal of interest for residential use but a change of planning use to residential was required. The process was held up as the local authority required significant contributions under their community infrastructure levy legislation in order to grant the change of use and negotiations were undertaken. However in November last year, a change in policy by the local authorities meant the levy was no longer required and the change of use application could proceed. We have now resubmitted the application and are waiting for a decision.
In the interim there had been renewed interest in the property from several parties resulting in best & final offers being invited by the 16th January 2015. The successful bidder completed the sale very shortly thereafter.
