Important information relating to properties displayed on the Sphere Estates website

 

Particulars: Any property particulars are not an offer or contract, nor part of one. You should not rely on statements by Sphere Estates in the particulars or by word of mouth or in writing ("information") as being factually accurate about the property, its condition or its value. Neither Sphere Estates nor any joint agent has any authority to make any representations about the property, and accordingly any information given is entirely without responsibility on the part of the agents, seller(s) or lessor(s).

Regulations etc: Any reference to alterations to, or use of, any part of the property does not mean that any necessary planning, building regulations or other consent has been obtained. A buyer or lessee must find out by inspection or in other ways that these matters have been properly dealt with and that all information is correct.

 

VAT: The VAT position relating to the property may change without notice.

Information on the website about a property is liable to be changed at any time.
