Whilst it is a good idea to visit a trading business that is being marketed for sale as a customer before making a formal viewing, it is vitally important that such visits are carried out confidentially and that no approach is made to the staff, operators or customers of the business.
Many investments are being marketed confidentially and the staff and locals may not know that the property is on the market, therefore a casual approach can adversely affect the business.
In order to comply with anti-money laundering legislation, the successful purchaser / tenant will be required to provide certain identification documents. The required documents will be confirmed to and requested at the relevant time.
