A building which used to be a pop-in parlour for the elderly is being auctioned off for a guide price of £35 - £45,000.
The former Age UK single-storey building in Queen Street, Erith, owned by Bexley Council, is due to go under the hammer on Monday, December 12 at the Clive Emson Conference Centre at the Kent Councty Show, Detling, Maidstone, at 11am.
Senior valuer, Ben Snelling, said: “The property is located in the centre of Erith with its popular shopping facilities. It is thought that the building could be used for a variety of schemes and alternative uses, subject to all the necessary consents being obtainable.
“We’re receiving a lot of instructions from local authorities for the disposal of surplus land and property, from Kent to Cornwall, and they always generate a lot of interest from bidders, with most selling.”
Age UK stopped renting the property in July 2008 before it was used by Gee Construction until June 2009. A decision was taken on October 7 this year to put up the building for auction.
