Craig Still of Clifton Rentals recommends:
This great split level flat offers the purchaser great options to renovate and develop the property. Because of its size there are various options available – outlined below are the two options we believe offer the successful bidder the best rental return. Due to the flats current location it would be suited to either professional or student markets – the development depending on how it was done may require consents to be obtained from council. Both possibilities refer to rooms as shown on floor plan.
1.) Renovate as Professional let property
The flat could be developed at a lovely three double bed flat. Firstly the wall between the rooms shown as Bedroom 1 and kitchen could be removed and a split level open plan kitchen, diner and lounge. The rooms listed as reception and bedroom 2 would become bedrooms. The basement level could be dug down and a master suite with its own en suite (in smaller basement room) and even a walk in wardrobe (where current coal store is) could be developed. Under the stairs that lead to the basement you would create a well sized family bathroom. You could create a cloak room in the current cupboard in main hallway. The current bathroom could be either kept or more likely turned into a utility room. Ideally you would convert the front garden into parking spaces for the flat. A flat like this would attract corporate clients here for fixed term contracts. If done to a high specification with parking you would achieve £2750.00 - £3000.00pcm.
2.) Renovate as a Student let
With the correct consents you could create a 6 bedroom student property. Firstly you could split the current reception room in half, bedroom 2 would remain unchanged. You would create a shower room in the current cupboard in hallway. The kitchen could be slightly reduced in size and the current bathroom at rear would be converted into a bedroom. The current bedroom 1 would become the lounge/diner. The basement would be lowered and two bedrooms created in the current basement rooms. The space under the stairs to basement would also be lowered to create a large bathroom. If done to a good standard the return for this would be in region of £3000.00pcm. Due to potential planning restrictions the number of bedroom and configurations could easily be lowered and configuration varied to suit. If rooms were reduced the successful bidder should work on each bedroom renting for £500.00pcm.

Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £500 + VAT buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.
An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
