W h a t s h o u l d I l o o k fo r i n a c o nveya n c e r ? Buying or selling a property can be a stressful process, but there are some easy steps you can take to help to make the conveyancing process as smooth and as calm as possible. Reputation and client satisfaction Take time to research your solicitor or conveyancer. Recommendations by professionals, friends or family are a good starting point. Visit the solicitor’s website and if they have client testimonials, have a read through. Some firms have profiles, photos and contact details of their conveyancers, so you can be reassured who you will be dealing with. Law firms may also be accredited with The Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), providing evidence of a recognised quality standard. Transparent costs Like with most services, you will probably want to get 2 or 3 quotes for your conveyancing work. Make sure you are comparing like-for-like quotes, that you see a breakdown of the fees and that these are

transparent and fixed from the outset. Regular communication Property conveyancing is often dependent on a ‘chain’ and complications can arise that may hold the process up, so it is important your conveyancer keeps you informed of developments as they happen. When choosing your conveyancer, check how they will be communicating with you, for example, ask if they have direct dial and email, and can you check the progress of your matter online 24/7. If you would like to talk to Spratt Endicott Solicitor’s team of property experts in Brackley about buying or selling a property, please contact Terena Barnacle, Head of Brackley office on 01280 730882 or email tbarnacle@se-law.co.uk

Healthy drinking – everything in mod We’ve read the newspaper articles on the risks of alcohol, seen the government guidelines on units per week and every year there’s Dry January to help us get over our Christmas excesses, but in reality, drinking is as much a part of most social occasions as we are ourselves. With busy lives, too much to do and the need to go out and unwind every so often, it’s no surprise that most of us like an occasional tipple. On a lovely summer’s evening, many of us (erm, yes – guilty as charged!) regularly enjoy a Pimm’s in the garden, a well-earned G&T or few cold pints after a long day at work and it’s a lovely treat to share a bottle of wine over dinner. We know that regular heavy drinking can lead to all sorts of health problems – causing some cancers, liver disease, obesity and so many more problems, which is enough to make most of us reconsider even the tiniest tipple.

health, because it’s packed full of antioxidants, and the anecdotal evidence of people living to a ripe old age is that many swear by a small tot of something each night as the key to long life. The key, as with everything, seems to be everything in moderation. Certain groups of people, such as pregnant women and those with some pre-existing conditions or who are on certain medications, need to stay well away from

The summer holidays can fill parents with joy but also dread. What to do with the children to keep them entertained? Getting children outside and into the garden can be tricky when there are computer games to be played and things to watch on screens. But we can and should encourage them out; spending time outside gives them learning opportunities that cannot be simulated and is great for physical and mental wellbeing. Perhaps your garden has a neglected corner

that can be given over to the children to build a den from old wood recycled at home or foraged on a walk. Imaginations can then run wild; is it a little house in the woods, a soldier’s bunker or a fort? If it isn’t too shady, the area could be turned into an area to have them grow something.

back , a bit of food and water and ‘watch the flowers grow’. Alternatively, sows ome biennials for next spring, to get the full wonderment at seeing a whole plant grow from a tiny seed. Planting butterfly attracting flowers like Monarda (bergamot) Verbena bonariensis and Sedum spectabile will bring all the colourful butterflies and moths in. See how many different ones they can spot, and do a count of all the species. If you have a pond, do dips and see how the mix of creepy crawlies changes over the summer. One of my favourite garden projects as a child was growing on a Silver birch sapling; it grew quickly and was so rewarding to see it go from a few inches to feet to metres tall.

With some bamboo sticks and pool noodles you can make mazes or obstacle courses. Set up a route and time them; they will want to get quicker and it will keep them occupied for hours. If the weather heats up, water stations and paddling pools can be used to water pots, veggies and establishing plants in the garden. Put up a tent in the garden and use that as a den by day and sleep over by night. Perhaps the grownups could join in too, and toast a few marshmallows as the sun goes down.
