Royal Bank premises go up for auction
Two redundant bank branches in Dumfriesshire are to go under the hammer later this month.
SVA Property Auctions expect to sell the Annan and Lockerbie buildings at an auction in Edinburgh on Thursday, November 22
Both branches were closed this summer by the Royal Bank of Scotland, leaving empty the prominent buildings on Annan and Lockerbie’s High Streets.
SVA has already sold 24 former bank premises this year which have been snapped up for retail or office use.
According to auctioneer Shaun Vigers, the C-listed former Annan bank, on the ground floor of a two storey 19th century red sandstone building, is one of the highlights of the sale. The property has a guide price of between £75,000 and £80,000.
He said:“We have found, over the years, that this is the kind of auction that buyers like and we are looking forward to seeing a room full of investors, entrepreneurs, seasoned auction attendees and new faces ready for an opportunity or a challenge.”
The former Lockerbie bank is the ground floor of a three-storey sandstone building and is grade C-listed. The guide price is £55,000.
