Property Overview


TO LETRETAIL UNITLarge basement. Opposite bus station. Should enable the possibility of some small business rates relief. Available immediately. £550 pcm / £6500 pa

LOCATION. The unit is located to the north of the High Street, within the popular North Yorkshire market town of Knaresborough. Knaresborough is located within the heart of the "golden triangle" of North Leeds, Harrogate and York. It has a relatively large centre and retail mix for a town of its size, including some nationals. The property benefits from a strategic position, opposite the town`s bus station and a Sainsbury`s supermarket.

DESCRIPTION. The unit forms part of a larger mixed use property, with a further retail unit to the east and flats above. It benefits from an almost full height, laminate glazed shop front, incorporating a recessed customer entrance door. A rear door, staff toilet and kitchenette are also provided. The property has previously traded successfully as a shop catering for mobile phone sales and repairs.

ACCOMMODATION. The shop extends to a net internal area of approximately 44 m (475 sq ft). The basement provides approximately 34 m (317 sq ft) of storage space.

SERVICES. We understand that the property has a dedicated electricity supply, although water is shared with the adjoining shop and residential units above and is included within the rent.

PLANNING. The wider building is Grade (II) Listed and within the town`s conservation area. We believe that it benefits from an established use for A1 (retail) purposes. Potential tenants looking towards alternative uses are advised to make their own enquiries with Harrogate Borough Council`s planning department.

BUSINESS RATES. We understand that the property presently has a rateable value of £5,500. This should enable the possibility of some Small Business Rates Relief under the current regime.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE (EPC). We do not believe that an EPC certificate is required as the property forms part of a Listed building.

RENT. £550pcm/£6,500pa.

TERMS. The property is available to rent for a term of years to be agreed on an internal repairing (plus shop front) basis. The ingoing tenant will be responsible for the payment of electricity and non-domestic rates (if applicable), as well as making a contribution towards the wider building`s annual insurance premium.

OTHER. The ingoing tenant will be required to enter into a rent deposit deed with the landlord and provide 3 months` worth of rent (up-front). The adjoining shop (to the east) benefits from a right of way across the back of the shop and through the rear door for fire escape purposes. The landlord will reserve the right to enter the basement of the property to carry out meter readings, as meters for the wider building are to this area. Both parties to be responsible for their own legal costs in terms of drawing up the lease.
