37 Watergate Street is a substantial town centre Grade II Listed Building comprising five 2 bedroom flats, together with a large car park to the rear, providing an ideal investment purchase with a potential gross annual income in the region of £21,000.

The building is divided in to five self-contained flats, four of which have been updated over the last few years, including the provision of new kitchens, bathrooms etc. The building, as a whole, has also undergone improvement works in recent years including updating of the electrical system and installation of the Rointe Kyros electric heaters.

Two of the flats are currently occupied on Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreements, whilst three of the flats have been left empty for ease of viewing whilst the property is sold.

Outside, there is a substantial car park to the rear providing ample parking and manoeuvring space to serve all five flats (please see plan attached).

Stamp Duty Calculator

Stamp Duty Total

You usually pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on increasing portions of the property price above £125,000 when you buy residential property, eg a house or flat.

There are different rules if you’re buying your first home and the purchase price is £500,000 or less.

You’ll usually have to pay 3% on top of the normal SDLT rates if buying a new residential property means you’ll own more than one.

You won’t pay the extra 3% SDLT if the property you’re buying is replacing your main residence and that has already been sold.
