Some are traditional brick and pantile buildings and others are more modern construction but probably all would need some alteration to make them usable for your purposes. The Landlord is often able to organise that in a matter of weeks using his own building team. These particulars are generic and not all detail will apply to all properties. Please let us know what your needs are and the budget you have available per calendar month to rent premises and we will be happy to discuss the available options.

The main farmhouse is let and lies to the north east side of the steading and enjoys a separate drive from the Highway. The main brick barn is occupied in connection with the farmhouse for a catering supply business. The main yard at Ellers has a vehicular access which circles round an old Dutch barn in the middle and is suitable for articulated lorries.

Business Rates are not applicable currently but should they become applicable would be the responsibility of the Tenant.

However, some units may qualify for Small Business Rates Relief or other dispensation. The following is taken from the Ryedale District Council website.
“Businesses with Rateable Values below the relevant Rateable Value threshold may be eligible to qualify for Small Business Rate Relief provided they meet the qualifying criteria. Any qualifying ratepayer is automatically entitled to their charge being calculated on the Small Business Rate Multiplier for the relevant financial year. In addition to this, a reduction of up to 50% may be applicable dependant on the Rateable Value of the qualifying hereditament (premises).

Effective from 1 April 2010, the qualifying criteria for Small Business Rate Relief has been amended to coincide with the new Rating List. Any ratepayer already in receipt of the relief in the 2005 Rating List is not required to complete a new application. Please be advised that any applications received after 30 September 2010 may only be considered for relief from 1 April 2010. The criteria are as follows:
• Ratepayers who pay Business Rates for one occupied property in the Non-Domestic Rating List with a Rateable Value of less than £18,000.
• Ratepayers who pay Business Rates for more than one occupied property, but whose total Rateable Value on all occupied properties do not exceed £18,000. In these cases, a ratepayer can claim against the largest assessment only. In addition to this, the individual Rateable Values of the smaller occupied hereditaments must not exceed £2,600 each.
Qualifying businesses are entitled to their charge being calculated on the Small Business Rate Multiplier for the relevant financial year. In addition to this, a percentage reduction may also be applicable dependant on the following criteria:
1. 50% for businesses with a Rateable Value of less than £6,000
2. 49% to 1% for businesses with a Rateable Value between £6,000 and £11,999. This is calculated on a sliding scale. The percentage of relief decreases by 1% for every increase of £120 in the Rateable Value.
3. 0% (Small Business Rate Multiplier only) for businesses with a Rateable Value between £12,000 and £17,999.
Relief Increases From 1 October 2010 - The June 2010 Budget announced that the Government would make Small Business Rate Relief more generous, initially for one year starting from 1 October 2010. This has subsequently been extended by the Government for a further 30 months. The relief amounts will revert back to their original level effective from 1 April 2014 provided they are not extended by the Government again. The changes to the amount of relief are as follows:
1. 100% for businesses with a Rateable Value of less than £6,000.
2. Businesses with a Rateable Value between £6,000 and £11,999 that are receiving relief at the tapered amount will receive an increase in relief up to a maximum of 99% dependant on the Rateable Value.
Businesses with a Rateable Value between £12,000 and £18,000 are unaffected and will remain entitled to the Small Business Rate Relief Multiplier only.”
