MISCELLANEOUS

All furniture (including 50″ flat screen TV and Blue Ray DVD Player), curtains, rugs, bedding, cushions, crockery, pots, pans, utensils will be included in the sale, but the white goods cannot be warranted.

Only certain paintings of sentimental value will be retained by the current owners.  The dining table, chairs, coffee table, , tall free standing cupboards, dressing table/desk, wall mirror frames are of solid light oak construction as are the doors of the kitchen units.

The property is wheelchair ‘friendly’, with wider doors etc. where required.

 

LETTING INCOME

The current owners market the property through the Royal Marine Hotel (which is a 4 Star Hotel and ensure the apartment is serviced to this standard), and their own Airbnb site, which provides an even balance of bookings between them.

Net income prior to Management Fees, and Utility Charges should be in the region of £10,000 this year (2021), and obviously this has not been the easiest year in which to operate.  These figures include income received and future bookings to date, but there are still vacancies available in June, September, and October, which will further inflate the income.  This also allows for periods of occupation by the owners themselves.

 

SERVICES

The Royal Marine Hotel offers an optional Concierge Service for £350 per annum, which includes checking the property throughout the year for any shortfalls with the property, changing lightbulbs, etc.  They will also attend to welcoming guests booked through the hotel, issuing keys, etc.

The property and grounds are maintained by Newton Properties, and this includes, gardens, lobbies, hallways, gutters, etc.  This costs £104 per month, with occasional additional bills for exceptional repairs and buildings insurance.

These services combine to ensure that the properties remain in good order moving forward, protecting your investment, and providing “peace of mind”.

 

COUNCIL TAX

The new owner will be billed by Highland Region for Council Tax Charges.  A full rebate is available if the new owner elects to offer the property for holiday lets for a minimum period during the year.  However, this will then incur Business Stream Water Rates and a water meter might be advisable in this instance.
