Acronyms are prominently featured in this week’s Bulletin. Mainly to secure a good bargain for readers. Although, for some, an UKWMO Bunker is THE unique property to secure.

UKWMO is a proven favourite with a large number of readers – according to our statistics and page, from our previous sale of the UKWMO Ticehurst Bunker achieving around 20,000 website visitor “clicks”. A high volume of click-throughs appear whenever a rare UKWMO ROC underground bunker comes up for sale.

We featured and sold the last UKWMO Bunker at Ticehurst exclusively on this website. If you Google these structures, the main place to find them for sale is climbing up the internet rankings. See for yourself: just search the term for “UKWMO Bunker For Sale”. The results speak for themselves. It is increasingly shown that the Unique Property Bulletin online is the place to find and buy/sell one of these amazing spaces. So perhaps keep your eye on this website if you are after one of these highly unusual subterranean bunkers.

For newer Bulletin readers, we would clarify: the acronym UKWMO being United Kingdom War Monitoring Organisation, and ROC standing for Royal Observer Corps.

For the rest of this Bulletin we feature many bargains to be had via FTSAA. That stands for Failed To Sell At Auction. A situation that places a buyer in a very strong position to secure a good price with a post-auction deal.

Good luck to all of our readers this week, and please let us know how you get on.

However, we have, like previous lighthouse compunds our subscribers and members have purchased, identified THREE elements at Scurdie Ness that may be bought on an individual and separate basis. This makes the whole sale proposition much more affordable for buyers. Two parts are effectively earmarked by our buyers in waiting. The final part of the jigsaw is one of the former lighthouse keeper’s dwellings – a 2 bed flat:-

UKWMO Bunker, Ashwell For Sale (c) 2014 Owner’s Collection

The Royal Observer Corps was administered by the Ministry of Defence but mainly funded by the Home Office. The organisation was wound up and disbanded in November 1992.

Subsequently these underground bunkers were sold off.

 UKWMO Bunker, Ashwell For Sale (c) 2014 Owner’s Collection

Here at Unique Property Bulletin we have visited a few, and they can be a little claustrophobic. Though genuinely unique properties. We even bid on a couple in the 1990s at £5,000 and £6,000 but narrowly missed out. There has been a steady appreciation in price on these unusual underground bunkers over the years. Partially due to the strictly limited number built, and few that come onto the sale market.
