ON BEHALF OF SEFTON COUNCIL: Town Centre freehold part commercial and part residential property comprising vacant ground floor and basement levels plus upper floors sold subject to a long lease


The property comprises the freehold interest in a mid terrace three storey (as viewed from Eastbank Street) property, with a basement accessed from the rear. The upper floors (first and second floors, plus ground floor entrance) are subject to a long leasehold interest for 125 years from 1st January 2008 at a ground rent of £150 per annum.

The property was previously used as an unlicensed HMO, configured with one room with WC/bath in the corner to the front room and a rear kitchen room. These parts are accessible, but the basement area comprising further rooms is practically not safe to access, with there being a 5-foot drop from a hole in the staircase from ground floor and the rear access is comprehensively shuttered up.

Condition is very poor and a whole scale renovation is required internally and externally there are also many areas of dis-repair and urgent maintenance required. An Emergency Prohibition Order was served by the Council in 2016 and a copy is within the Legal Pack.

There appears to be an existing permission for conversion of part of the ground floor and basement to form 1 self-contained flat and minor alterations to the rear elevation Ref. No: N/2008/0425/Status: Approved Conditionally. The permitted works in Ref. No: N/2008/0425 appear to allow a single small retail unit, plus a 1-bedroom flat. Interested parties should rely on their own enquiries in respect of future permitted development at the property.


The property is located within Southport town centre, within walking distance of retail and leisure facilities. Eastbank Street, provides a range of commercial, retail and residential properties and connects to Lord Street. Southport is a traditional seaside resort, known for it's 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.
