ON BEHALF OF COURT APPOINTED RECEIVERS: Residential property previously used as a 10 room HMO with an additional 3 bedroom flat in need of renovation


*VIDEO TOUR AVAILABLE ON REQUEST* The property comprises accommodation over two stories and an attic. It was previously used as offices, before being converted to a HMO. However, the property does not currently appear on the public register of mandatory licences at Sefton Council and any purchaser would need to assess the suitability of the layout against their current licensing standards. In addition we understand that the following planning permission relates to the property: S/2012/1313- Continuation of use of house in multiple occupation containing 8 units – approved with conditions on 20th September 2013. The current layout differs from the approved plans.

Development and a range of alternative uses are possible, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Interested parties should consult with the Local Planning Office to confirm what is currently permitted and any potential alterations.

The ground floor is currently configured to provide 4 letting rooms, 3 shower/WCs, an office and kitchen. At first floor there are 5 letting rooms, 4 shower/WCs and the attic a letting room, with a bathroom/WC and what was self-contained flat comprising a lounge/kitchen, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom/WC.


The property lies in a predominantly residential area of Southport, albeit on the edge of the town centre with commercial uses nearby and on adjoining roads. Southport is a traditional seaside resort, known for its Victorian glazed canopies to the shops on Lord Street and as the location of Royal Birkdale golf club which is a regular on the Open Golf rota. Liverpool lies approximately 15 miles to the south.

Local bus routes are available nearby on Eastbank Street (A570), with the main railway within 500 metres.
