Bathgate is a popular town in West Lothian situated just off junction 3A of the M8 and is approximately 5 miles and 15 miles west of Livingston and Edinburgh respectively.
The subjects are located on Jarvey Street close to the corner of Hopetoun Street at the east end of the town centre. The immediate area is retail and commercial but there is also a high density of residential properties in the surrounding streets.
The train station is a short walk from the subjects and there are also a number of bus services connecting the town with surrounding districts. Local parking can also be found nearby.
Nearby occupiers include several cafes, a branch of the Bank of Scotland, Tanz tanning studio and Gianni’s Italian restaurant.
The subjects comprise a shop unit over ground floor only forming part of a detached two storey building, with residential units at first floor.
The premises was formerly occupied by a podiatrist business so there is a natural reception area to the left of the main entrance. There is a partitioned off treatment room which leads through to a staff tea prep area. To the rear of the unit is a disable WC.
Generally, the subjects are in good decorative order throughout with modern flooring and lighting. The removal of the partitions would create a good open space with the large main window to the front providing plenty of daylight.
According to our recent measurement survey the premises contain the following approximate net internal area:
34 sq m (365 sq ft)
Our client is seeking rental offers of £9,100 per annum (£175 per week) to grant a new lease.
The subjects are made available on the basis of a new full repairing and insuring (FRI) lease for a term to be negotiated.
According to the Scottish Assessor’s website (www.saa.gov.uk) the subjects have a Rateable Value of £5,300. The uniform business rate for the current year is £0.484 pence in the pound.
Occupiers may be eligible for rates relief through the small business bonus scheme if the combined rateable value of all their business premises in Scotland is £35,000 or less.
We understand the property is served by mains water and electricity.
