Originally a leasehold tenure with a term of 999 years from 1991, the freehold was then acquired by the four owners in August 1999, and a management company in the name of Poplars Court (Market Harborough) Ltd was set up to manage the freehold of numbers 9, 10, 11 and 12. The company is a private company and has only four shares. The shares are owned by the owners of each flat. Each share holder has a certificate. On sale, the share is transferred to the new owner. A copy of the Land Registry plan is available from the selling agents. Interested parties are recommended to seek advice from their solicitor.

Fixtures and fittings mentioned in these particulars are included in the sale - all other items regarded as owners fixtures and fittings may be removed.
