Hi thereThanks for your enquiry.
In standard Agreements of this tyoe, provided you have offered the Park first refusal, then you are entitled to sell the Lodge independently.
I would therefore advise that you send the Park a registered post letter, stipulating that if you do not hear from within 7 days with confirmation that they wish to purchase the Lodge, that you will then sell it independently.
As regards the price you sell it for, you will need to try and get market value for it, and the figures you quote from the comparison you have, appears to be fine.
I would still send them a registered post letter- you will then have evidence- as some emails can "get lost" or they could argue they never received it.
As regards fair market value, the only way you can calculate this is by reference to the Sale price of other Lodges of a similar type. It therefore appears that you have done your homework on this, and have got some comparables.
In law, you would need to send a letter I'm afraid. Unfortunately, with phone calls, there is no written evidence you can produce that these wer emade, and likewise, as you are under a duty to offer the Lodge to them, the law in this regard would mean you writing to the Park with this Offer.
I hope this assists.
I am stilll here!
Well, as I explained in my earlie rpost, a fair market value is just that- you have to compare the selling prices of similar Lodges, and then you know what is a fair price or not. Obviously, if the Park only offered you 60K, this certainly would not be a fair market price, and would be well under the market value.
I will opt out then- you say anyone could have told you to write a letter, but it doesn't appear that you have done this yet!
