What are Sui Generis properties?

Properties not fitting any of the other use classes. This will include cinema, concert, bingo and dance halls. All buildings operating within two use classes, will be classed as Sui Generis.

Sui generis has increased the properties that fall within including:

  • Theatre
  • Amusement arcade
  • Launderette
  • Night-club
  • Cinema
  • Concert hall
  • Bingo hall
  • Dance hall

All of the above do not fall within a specific use and therefore offer Sui Generis. Any property operating within two use classes will be classed as Sui Generis.

      No, we only display a selection of properties on our website. We recommend signing up to our mailing list for exclusive access to over 80% more properties within the E, F1 and F2 use classes (formerly D1 & D2).

      Each property listing is different, some we are already retained on by the vendor in which case you will not have to pay us. Those that we are not retained on, are clearly marked. If you are unsure or would like to check please ask. Our standard fees are 2% + VAT of the purchase price, or 10% + VAT of the average annual rent. 

      Please register your interest in the property first, we will then send you a brochure and the address if requested. 

      We will ask you for details of how you intend to fund the transaction, proof of a mortgage offer (if applicable) and proof of cash available in a UK bank account. We will also require your charity number if applicable.
