ON BEHALF OF THE COURT APPOINTED RECEIVER: Mid terrace house being used as a 5* bedroom HMO in need of refurbishment


The property comprises a mid-terrace house of traditional brick construction, under a tiled roof. It has a single storey extension at the rear. It is currently being used as an HMO, with the ground floor used to provide 3 letting rooms, shared common area room (former dining room, being used for storage and drying of clothes) and kitchen. At first floor there are 2 letting rooms and a shared bathroom, with WC.

The Receiver has obtained 4 copy tenancies indicating that the property is let at a combined annual income of £16,200 and we understand from the tenants on site that there is a 5th tenant. We cannot confirm this and we have no information as to their tenancy (if any).

*We cannot confirm if the current HMO Licence permits the current level of occupation, nor if the property complies with the relevant legislation and local Council's requirements and standards. We would anticipate various works and refurbishment is required and interest parties should rely on their own enquiries https://www.newham.gov.uk/housing-homes-homelessness/maintaining-good-standards-rented-property-landlords & https://www.newham.gov.uk/housing-homes-homelessness/rented-property-licensing/8.

Greengate Street (A112) provides direct access to local bus routes, with Plaistow Underground Station approximately 0.5 mile to the north. The intersection of Newham Way and the North Circular (A1020) is approximately 2 miles to the east.

Ground : 63 sq. m (679 sq. ft)
First Floor: 43 sq. m (461 sq. ft)
Total: 106 sq. m (1140 sq. ft)
