OSBORNE BUDGET A BOOST FOR FIRST TIME BUYERS, SAYS FOX & SONS Chancellor George Osborne’s announcement of a Lifetime ISA in the recent Budget is good news for first time buyers, according to local estate agency Fox & Sons in Poole. With more scope to save towards a deposit and over a longer period of time, the team believes that this initiative will give many aspiring home owners another boost towards owning their own home. The Lifetime ISA will see those that take advantage of the scheme given a Government top up of £1 for every £4 saved. This can be put towards a deposit for a new home or alternatively towards a retirement fund available from the age of 60. With the option to save up to £4,000 each year, and with a tax-free bonus of £1,000, first time buyers can in fact save more than with the original Help to Buy ISA. Additionally, savers who have already started contributing towards a Help to Buy ISA will have the option of moving their savings over to the Lifetime ISA, therefore taking advantage of the more generous Government offering. “The desire from first time buyers to purchase a property is as strong as it has ever been but lack of access to finance continues to be a major stumbling block,” says Charlie Parish, Mortgage Services Consultant at Fox & Sons. “The announcement of a new Lifetime ISA is another great incentive for first time buyers providing much needed help for those raising a deposit to take their first step onto the property ladder. “With a bigger Government contribution, higher savings limits and a longer time limit, the Lifetime ISA will no doubt instil more confidence in those aspiring home owners. It also sits nicely with the existing Help to Buy opportunities available and should help to stimulate the market from the bottom up,” concludes Charlie. If you are a first time buyer and would like more information on the local property market, visit your local Fox & Sons branch at Poole or call 01202 672736. For more information on the Lifetime ISA: www.gov.uk/government/ publications/lifetime-isa-explained

HMOS REMODELLED TO MEET NEW DEMAND

DOG ALMIGHTY

Dorset’s biggest private landlord has turned another of its ‘houses of multiple occupancy’ (HMOs) into self-contained flats as it continues to remodel its housing stock to meet local need.

Dog Almighty was set up by Verity to provide a professional service for dog walking care for when you cannot be there for your best friend, covering Christchurch, Bournemouth, Highcliffe and surrounding areas. Verity is a huge dog lover and has five years experience working with dogs, she tells us that “Dogs are a real life time passion of mine and I love everything about them.”

DWP Housing Partnership invested £350,000 in the Westbourne property in Norwich Avenue West that now has 11 flats rather than multiple rooms with shared facilities. In the last two years, the company has converted 75 bedsits and rooms housing over 100 tenants into self-contained units. There is a growing number of local workers looking for homes and DWP is adapting its stock to supply that demand.

committed to updating our housing stock and turning HMOs into self-contained flats or back into houses. We are looking at the longterm future because it is better for ourselves and our clients if they stay longer in our properties, and we are encouraging this by providing the accommodation people want. “Although the number of tenants we can accommodate in our remodelled HMOs will of course decrease, we are making up for that by building brand new purpose-built flats. “The demand for our properties has never been greater and over the last five years we have invested more than £20m in new developments and millions more converting our HMOs.” www.dwphousing.co.uk

The accommodation brings newly refurbished self-contained rental properties into the reach of modest wage earners, enabling them to find a property without all the exorbitant costs of using an agency. The remodelling of its HMOs is running alongside DWP’s continued investment in brand new developments. No tenants have been left without a home during this rolling programme of improvement which is set to continue. Steve Wells from DWP said: “We are

HONESTY BEING APPRECIATED, SO FAR... SK Property Group pride themselves on NOT being the ‘norm’, the look, the predictive spiel- everything that results in the negative perception of agents. Their refreshing approach to their work has reaped the rewards. “We are happy to report a 100% success rate with market appraisals and instructions, don’t get me wrong there will be people that don’t accept an honest achievable valuation due to ‘agent 2’ giving an inflated valuation of £15,000 more but so far everyone has bought into what we have said” Simon Kerley, Director Already SK Property Group are collecting some stunning testimonials: “I can’t believe how professional you have both been”, Mrs. G- Vendor “I wasted 12 weeks with another agent, I received your leaflet, gave you a call and never

Fully insured as dog walkers they provide a reliable and caring exercise service for your dog. Many people have hectic work commitments and lifestyles and by using Dog Almighty you can rest assured in the knowledge that your dog will be well cared for and will not only be going out for a regular walk but also socialising with other dogs and generally having lots of fun.

looked back. Your approach proved to me that not all agents are the same”, Mr M- Vendor. “We were first time buyers and quite daunted at the prospect of spending so much moneyDouglas and Simon were with us every step of the way and even met with us for a coffee on a Sunday when we thought everything was going wrong”, Miss P- Purchaser “We have the same ‘tools’ as every other agent- we just use them in a more proactive way, we make your property work for you and do what we say we are going to do. We aim to help everyone that gets in contact so we look forward to hearing from you soon” Douglas Stirling-Kibble, Director

They also offer an individual service for some dogs who need one to one attention. Whether it’s a regular daily walk for your dog, once or twice weekly or just a really long, energetic ramble or even popping in to feed and check on them at home, call them to discuss your requirements. No job (or dog!) too small! Verity, Dog Almighty t. 07957635553 e. vertmill24@yahoo.com

ASK THE EXPERT Matthew Fleming-Duffy Cherry Mortgage and Finance LTD Mortgage and Finance Broker

Are you ready for the buy to let changes? You may or not be aware that as of 1 April 2016 the stamp duty land tax (SDLT) on second homes and buy to let purchases will be increased by 3%. If that wasn’t enough for landlords, the government has also announced that as of April 2017 the tax relief claimed by

SETTING YOU ON THE PATH TO GARDENING SUCCESS

landlords on their financial costs will be capped at 20%, instead of the higher rate of 45%, which will be phased out over the following years. Chancellor George Osborne also added that the current ‘wear and tear’ allowance afforded to those letting out furnished property would be scrapped and replaced with relief against the cost of replacing furnishings. With so many changes all within a small time frame, it has created a complicated scenario for many landlords, who may be seeking the financial guidance of an adviser to ensure they make the right decisions. In an effort to curb incentives for housing investment, the government has introduced the changes to “level the playing field” between landlords and first-time buyers. This has caused some controversy within the industry as some feel the changes are unfairly targeting landlords when the housing crisis is also affected by many other factors. Some landlords are even considering incorporation and setting up a limited company to apply for their mortgages, to ensure their portfolio remains as tax efficient as possible. But this is a complicated area and these changes will affect each landlord differently. That is why talking to us and your accountant, will help prepare you for and deal with the changes.

Our Investments Silver Arrow Investments was formed to enable investors who would not normally have the time, expertise or inclination to invest in the northern buy-to-let market an easy, safe and secure way of doing so. Silver Arrow Investments (SAI) generates consistent absolute returns in each calendar year through capital property growth and ongoing rental revenues. SAI exclusively invests client’s funds into repossessed or heavily discounted properties at a minimum of 20% below their independently approved, real market value. Our unique position to purchase properties below market value affords instant equity and boosts capital growth potential, in comparison to existing property investment opportunities. We only invest into properties with a low ‘price-to-rent’ ratio ensuring a consistent and proven high rental return from acquisition date.

Five key reasons to invest with Silver Arrow Investments Clarity & Simplicity As an asset based investment you can easily understand where your money is invested and what is generating the return. Security Investment is in a proven and secure asset. Each investment is secured with a first charge on the property in your name. Diversification The northern buy to let market has consistently produced very impressive returns and has performed even in recessionary periods.

Expertise Each investment is diligently managed and every acquisition is based on RICs approved advice. Each investment follows a strict set of risk averse rules to ensure that the returns we produce are consistently market leading. Consistent Returns Silver Arrow Investments guarantees the return to each client. Our revenue is generated from capital growth and rental income. We create enough of a margin to ensure the consistently high interest payments we pay to our clients and cover any times of non-occupancy.

Northern Buy to Let Market in the Newspapers

Buy-to-let investors have made £12,000 profit on every £1,000 they put into property since mortgages for landlords were first launched in 1996 – returns that have far outstripped every other type of investment, according to an analysis by one of Britain’s biggest lenders.

Northern cities and Scotland are producing the best returns for property investors, far outstripping yields in the South. In Sheffield, where the average property costs just under £70,000 and the average monthly rent is £645, landlords are reaping gross gains of more than 11pc. This is the highest in Britain and well above the nationwide average of 4.2pc. In fact nine of the top 10 postcodes for buy-to-let yields are in the North and Scotland.

The team are very knowledgeable and highly professional from the first viewing of the property through to completion. I was very impressed with the communication skills between all parties, including the tenant who understandably was anxious about her position. If I had any questions the team were efficient, making their enquiries and promptly returning to me with the answers. I highly recommend Landlord2Landlord Sales and have no hesitation in using their services in the future. - D.H.

I have used Move On Rentals for many years and have always been impressed at the level of service provided. More recently I decided to dispose of a rental property and used their Landlord To Landlord service to market the property, the service provided by L2Lsales was exemplary, the Solicitor employed by my buyer proved to be exceptionally difficult to deal with causing delay after delay, and L2lsales always took it upon themselves to rectify every situation that occurred. Next year I shall again be looking for further rental properties and intend to use the services of this company again, I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody. - R. Barlow

I have dealt with Move On Rentals who have looked at both renting my properties and have also let me the property that I now live in. Overall I have been very impressed with both services. They have always looked after me as a landlord and also as a tenant... nothing has ever been too much trouble. I also deal with many other letting agents around the area but I believe that the service I have had from Move On Rentals is the most professional and reliable. - J.D.

A successful Dorset business

Making Waves with Richard Carr Why any truthful person, with a modicum of Intelligence, will vote to leave.

Abakon Ltd is fully insured, has ISO9001 accreditation and are members of The Guild of Master Craftsmen showing our commitment to providing a professional service. We provide a ten year guarantee.

Let’s take this to pieces. The EU is and has become, a failed Socialist experiment of continental wealth re-distribution. In other words, the Northern countries will subsidise the southern. Well even that is wrong. In fact, Germany and the UK will basically subsidise the others, well even that is wrong! Actually we the British are being sucked dry by the whole of the EU because we are the largest contributor after Germany. We do not manufacture big-ticket items like Audi, BMW, VW, Mercedes Benz, Mini, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Seat, Porsche, Renault, Citroen, Renault, Peugeot, or Lamborghini. No, the cars we manufacture are for foreign owned companies that suck all the profits back to their homeland, as we have seen with Google. In addition to this, a lot of the equipment used in Dentists or Hospitals is predominantly German, so in who’s interest is it to be the largest contributor to the EU: Germany’s. So the question remains, why are we the second largest contributor? We are being conned. We spend €2,636 (per head) on the NHS, while Germany spend €3,337, and France spend €3,058. They can afford to because of the vast exports to us resulting in huge VAT payments to their exchequers. Have you ever wondered why their Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is so high? Well that is because of the big-ticket items, such as cars, and then comes Defence and Aviation. By the way Germany and France export more arms than the UK. We need to take stock and stop this pathetic position. We are Anglo Saxons and the French are Normans, the last bloke I met called Norman was not that bright! We all love going to Europe but we now need to leave this futile experiment. Nothing will change because ultimately they need us more than we need them, as we do not make anything! If it were going to make a difference why would the Frankfurt Stock Exchange be trying their hardest to buy The London Stock Exchange. Hardly a sign that ‘The City’ is going into decline. Since planning this piece we have all seen the terrible situation that has occurred in Brussels. Surely this must make the stayers realise that we must have borders and strict ones. What we British have forgotten, as we are not part of the ‘Schengen Agreement’ (well not all of it), is that most of the people in the EU can travel on an ID card, yes not a passport, so is it any wonder that terrorists can just wonder round Europe? To my amazement Cameron is still saying that now is not the time to review this, sorry pal now is the time for all of us to be told that we must carry our Driving Licence and that anyone who wants a Social Security number must have a valid Driving License! At least then we would all have a form of identification. As you now know I am one for “out”, just ask yourself what has the EU done for us? We are an island race and we need the money that we spend every day on the EU going into the NHS. To lift our expenditure per capita to at least that of Germany! 60

Planning permission? We get it.

Since 2003, we’ve specialised in helping developers and private individuals negotiate their way through the complex planning process. Call us for a free initial consultation. Our successful track record speaks for itself and includes the following recent projects:

New mixed use development Boscombe, Bournemouth Permission granted at Public Inquiry appeal Now under construction Ken Parke Planning worked with their clients’ architect to put forward a mixed use scheme comprising 8 retail units and 51 flats. The Council planners refused the scheme for being too big and harmful to the character of the area. However, a Planning Inspector agreed with Ken Parke that the development was a rare opportunity to redevelop an entire street block which was well considered and designed so that it would not cause harm.

7 Houses on a backland Brownfield site Winton, Bournemouth Planning Permission Granted September 2015 Ken Parke Planning Consultants turned around a previous dismissed appeal to obtain consent on this controversial site in Winton. A sensitive scheme was devised with the architects which would preserve neighbour amenity and the merits of the scheme were successfully argued at the Planning Committee against local objection.

Replacement cottage in historic location Mudeford, Dorset Appeal granted September 2015 A long running battle to replace a locally listed cottage in a sensitive conservation area was finally resolved at appeal. Ken Parke Planning successfully argued that it was not worthy of listed status. An Inspector agreed that the proposed replacement building is efficiently designed and provides appropriate accommodation for this prime location overlooking Christchurch Harbour.

Help to Buy is a government scheme created to help first time buyers and existing home owners to purchase a home, and get on the property ladder, with as little as a 5% deposit. How does it work? The government lends you up to 20% of the purchase price of your new build home, so you will need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage. There are no loan fees charged on the 20% loan for the first five years. Example of Help to Buy on a home with a purchase price of £200,000 Can I use the Help to Buy scheme? Equity loans are available to first time buyers as well as homeowners. The home you want to buy must be a new build property with a price tag of up to £600,000. You will need a 5% cash deposit to use the scheme. You must not own any other property at the time you buy your new home. Where are Help to Buy homes available? Help to Buy homes are available from house builders registered to offer Help to Buy homes in England. Registered builders will make it clear in their advertising if Help to Buy homes are available on their development sites. Are there any restrictions on the mortgage provider? Your first charge mortgage must be from a qualifying lending institution. These include lenders who are authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, and who have permission to enter into regulated mortgage contracts. This is likely to include most banks and building societies. The Financial Conduct Authority keeps a register of authorised persons on its website. The register can be found at www.fca.org.uk/register Your solicitor/conveyancer will check that the lender is compliant before a sale can proceed.

A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF A PROPERTY MANAGER We are often faced with the question “What does a property manager do?” To answer this we kept a brief record over the course of a week of the various issues we deal with.

MONDAY Monday morning is always interesting and we usually receive our highest call levels between 9 and 12. Following a stormy weekend this Monday was no different with a number of storm related incidents reported. Our two maintenance teams are dispatched to fix guttering and repair fences which have blown over in the wind before returning to their pre-planned work schedules. We also had reports of a power failure at one block and our electrical sub-contractor attended first thing to carry out investigations and resolve the problem. There have been 27 service charge payments received today and these are logged onto our specialist property management software – Blockman. Over 20 communal meter readings have been collected and Katie is logging these with the energy providers.

TUESDAY Today we have reports of fly tipping in the bin stores at one block and parking issues at another. Our maintenance team attend to clear the bin store and letters are hand delivered to the blocks occupants. With regards the parking issues a review of the lease is carried out and the matter passed to our solicitors for legal confirmation. In accounts Alison and Rhianna are reconciling the portfolio’s individual bank accounts and issuing service charge reminders. Tony, our Health and Safety Manager, is completing a review of the health and safety reports and the weekly fire alarm testing results. Any issues are passed to our electrical contractors for immediate action. WEDNESDAY Our staff meetings usually happen on a Wednesday morning before the office opens and are a great way to ensure all of our staff are on the same page. Headed by Emily, the meetings are fun and informal but with the

serious business of planning for our weekly pro-active management plan and deal with any issues that have occurred in the last week. Up for discussion today are those blocks which require additional works over and above the planned schedule. Works that would cost leaseholders more than £250 each would need to be consulted on in accordance with section 20 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 and the list of these blocks is passed to our surveyors for reports to be compiled. The smaller projects are distributed either in house or to one of our trusted sub-contractors. Our cleaners have submitted their worksheets which contain a box for reporting any issues. These issues are discussed and an action plan agreed for rectifying them. On their list of issues today are: items being stored in communal areas including buggies and bikes; vomit on the stairs; locks not working properly; and, in one block, more letting agent’s boards than there are flats. These issues are fed into our software and work orders compiled. The agents are telephoned and asked to remove their boards and the locksmith attends to test the lock. Unfortunately the barrel is beyond repair and a new one required. What appears to be a relatively simple job never is of course. There are 14 residents living at this property, some home owners and some tenants so arranging for each to receive two keys without being locked out becomes a mammoth task. By eight o’clock contact had been made with all affected and a visit was carried out to reset the tradesman’s button. Over the following week further keys were cut and sent to “buy to let” owners and their agents. Something as simple as a broken barrel can turn into a big project with so many people affected. That’s communal living for you! THURSDAY Today we receive a call saying there is a damp patch showing on the ceiling of a top floor flat, believed to be coming from the roof. Our maintenance team is dispatched to carry out an initial investigation. The roof is a flat roof and there is no evidence of a problem but it is clearly leaking into the flat. This is reported back to the office who arrange for one of our roofing contractors to attend and carry out a further investigation and the occupant is kept fully appraised of the situation. Today Tony has a huge order delivered. On his shopping list this week was a new batch of 100 lightbulbs, 25 smoke alarm batteries, 30 fire direction signs, 10 ashtrays, 2 post boxes and 10 parking posts. The items are placed onto our work schedule ready for collection by our maintenance team. The work orders produced list the job item and a time frequency is added depending on the urgency of the work. Only on completion of the job the works orders are given to Katie to update the issue manager and mark the job as complete or add any comments needed.

FRIDAY We have two residents meetings scheduled today which are being held in our boardroom. The first meeting is with the directors of a Residents Management Company who, after some ten years with their current agent, have decided on a change. A presentation is given to them and then a slightly less formal question and answer session discussed over coffee. The Directors appear impressed with our ability to respond to faults and problems immediately rather than have to wait for outside contractors to attend. At the end of the meeting it was agreed to instruct us and so another 12 units come under our umbrella. Our second meeting of the day would not prove to be quite as straight forward. The meeting is with a group of leaseholders who have recently received proposals to increase the annual budget. Understandably this has not gone down well. The meeting is chaired by Emily and she opens by providing a detailed statement showing the previous year’s annual expenditure. Reading through the list, one of the areas of overspend has been in rubbish removal. Only one of the attendees actually lives at the property, with the remaining being “buy to let” landlords, and so very few at the meeting are aware that their tenants routinely use the bin and bike stores to dispose of furniture and rubbish. It is pointed out that the costs of removing and disposing of furniture and fridge freezers etc. is extremely high in today’s climate and it is agreed that landlords will attempt to educate their tenants and letting agents. It is also agreed that we at SPL will provide updates on this situation by way of our leaseholder portal. The portal allows each leaseholder to sign into their account and retrieve budgets, copies of insurance policies, health and safety reports and fire risk assessments. There is also a notice board where messages can be posted. All agreed this was an inexpensive way to improve communication and the meeting ended on a positive note with an amended budget agreed. 5pm comes and it is the end of another busy week. Home to relax and hope the emergency phone doesn’t ring over the weekend!

gardening and window cleaning services, allowing us to provide a fully comprehensive management service. We also have a pool of trusted contractors should clients wish to employ external contractors.

SPL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT Q&A We have answered a selection of your questions, for further information please get in touch with us on 01202 555560 or email info@splmanagement.co.uk Who are SPL Property Management? SPL Property Management was formed in 2009 with a small portfolio of 15 local properties. Over the last 7 years the company has gone from strength to strength and has grown significantly to a portfolio of properties which now extends across the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch conurbation, but also further afield in Southampton, Yeovil and Swanage. What makes SPL Property Management different from other similar firms? At SPL we have our own in-house maintenance team who are able to quickly respond to any issues which may arise. We are also able to offer our own cleaning,

How do you keep track of everything going on at a property? We use specialise property management software – Blockman – which allows us to track issues, raise works orders, charge our service charges and ground rents, receive payments, summarise expenditure over budget categories and issue reminders. We have also invested in expanding our use of this software to include a tenant portal where leaseholders can access their account online to see if any monies are due and access various important documents about the property. Why should I use a property management firm? Can’t I just manage the block myself? We would always recommend that a property management firm should be employed to assist with the management of a block of flats. Communal areas of a property are considered, under law, to be a workplace and, as such, they are subject to increased legislation, especially in terms of Health and Safety and Fire Safety. There is also a significant amount of Landlord and Tenant legislation which freeholders need to be aware of. Falling foul of this legislation can have significant consequences, from being unable to collect service charges, to being charged with corporate manslaughter. At SPL our Property Managers have a full understanding of the

legislation and requirements and are therefore able to advise Clients on their obligations. I am interested in getting a quotation for your services; how do I go about this? We would love to hear from you. Contact us by e-mail, telephone or letter to have a no-obligation conversation about the management of your property. We will need a few small details, such as the number of flats, the current management arrangements and the location, and we will then be able to tailor a quotation to fit your needs. If this is of interest we can then arrange a no obligation meeting with the Directors or leaseholders so that any queries or questions can be raised and discussed. Once you have decided that we are the right company for you we can then proceed with the management as quickly as required.

Property is our business, people are our passion SALES • LETTINGS • LAND & DEVELOPMENTS • NEW HOMES • HOLIDAY LETTINGS • COMMERCIAL Churchfield are delighted to welcome two new members of staff to the Churchfield Team. March 2016 has seen the arrival of Anthony Baynham as Residential Branch Manager and Anna Corbridge-Atkins as Lettings Negotiator and we are very excited for both of their futures within the company. Churchfield are involved with a number of new developments coming to the market in the next 18 months and we are thrilled to welcome these two new additions to our team as part of our ongoing strategy to expand each department to continue our outstanding customer experience. The sales department welcome Anthony to the team: “Anthony Baynham has a vast

knowledge and years of experience within the industry. We are excited to see Anthony take hold of the sales department and with his knolledge and experience build trusted relationships with our clients old and new.” The lettings department welcome Anna to the team: “Anna Corbridge-Atkins has a great knowledge of the local area and of the lettings market, we are pleased that Anna has joined the team and look forward to seeing her grow within the company. Although Anna hasn’t been with us for long her strengths are already shining through with her excellent customer service and eagerness to broaden her knowledge within the industry.”

ANNA CORBRIDGE-ATKINS Anna started working in the industry in 2014 as a lettings negotiator and spent a short time in 2015 as a sales negotiator where she learnt that her passion was for lettings. Previously from a retail background Anna is extremely customer service focused and prides herself in building strong and trusted relationships with her clients. Having lived in Bournemouth all of her life she has a good knowledge of the local area. Anna Adds: “I hope to progress within the lettings team at Churchfield and my future goals are to conduct valuations and focus on the marketing of our properties, working closely alongside our landlords”.

ANTHONY BAYNHAM Anthony began his estate agency career in 2004 for a large corporate estate agency. He quickly established himself as top sales person and made Branch Manager within one year. Through a proactive and customer focused approach Anthony lead his branch to being a market leader. He then moved to an independent agent within the New Forest and once again turned what was a failing branch into a market leading position once again. This process has been repeated for similar corporate and independent estate agencies throughout Dorset and Hampshire. Anthony has gained a wealth of experience and is accustomed to dealing with a variety of property, ranging from waterside and rural homes to town centre houses and apartments. All of this experience combined with determination and attention to detail and an understanding of his customers’ needs allows him to offer both sellers and buyers alike a level of professionalism which is founded on traditional values and an extensive local market knowledge.

WILL 2016 BE A YEAR TO REMEMBER? 2016 will, in my humble opinion, be a year to remember. Will it be the death of buy to lets, will it be the year house prices dropped, will it be the year of the least transactions of properties being sold or will it be the year house prices rose significantly? The conflicting reports on a daily basis, is enough for most people to almost turn off and say ‘talk to me in a couple of months once the dust has settled’. The budget has caused a whirl of activity within the buy to let (BTL) sector of investors purchasing like mad before the stamp duty rise of 3% from April, this has caused many conveyancing solicitors to be working well into the night up to the deadline. This has certainly been a productive couple of months in our sales department. Although it should be noted, the stamp duty can be claimed back as a tax deduction when you sell the property. I am being asked if you sell your main residence and purchase another main residence but own other property, will you be liable for the extra 3% stamp duty, so I thought this graph from the government website would help. How many properties do you own at the end of the day of the transaction?

One: The transaction is not subject to the higher rates, regardless of what the property is used for.

Yes: The transaction is not subject to the higher rates.

Two+: Is the property being purchased replacing your main residence (which is being sold)?

Yes, but previous main residence has not yet been sold: The transaction is subject to the higher rates, but a refund is available if the previous main residence is sold within 18 months.

No: The transaction is subject to the higher rates.

The Bank of England are currently discussing the extra conditions for BTL mortgages, which could put another squeeze on the property sector, we have seen MMR (mortgage market review) have a significant impact on the normal residential sales market. One of these stress level tests is assuming a rate of 5.5% for mortgage payments. BTL mortgages are expecting a 20% increase over the next 2 years in mortgage applications, however, they are also anticipating a deduction of 10-20% of these being passed.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

GREY’S ANATOMY

Once upon a time, magnolia ruled in homes. The warm peachy shade was for years apparently the only choice for walls - until out of the shadows came grey. “It’s an interior designer’s murder mystery - did grey kill magnolia?” teases Kate Watson-Smyth, whose new book, Shades Of Grey, focuses on the power of a grey palette and explains in crystal clear fashion, spiced with a liberal dash of humour, how to use it stylishly. “Nowadays poor old magnolia’s a byword for all that is bland, blah and boring in interiors, even though in its heyday it was lauded as being practical because it didn’t show the dirt, and its soft colour instantly suggested homeliness. “Unfortunately, new lighting in the Nineties, not grey, was the real culprit, which gradually brought about its demise. The harsher, cooler, clearer light of halogen, LED and fluorescent lamps, which replaced incandescent bulbs, simply made magnolia look terrible and left the field clear for grey, which now rules the roost. Our love of all things Nordic and the popularity of grey in fashion has also played a part in our passion for this palette.” Fresh, modern and easy to match to other colours, it’s perhaps hardly surprising that elegant, sophisticated grey is currently regarded as the perfect neutral. There’s only one snag - deciding which shade to choose.

As if the names for shades weren’t baffling enough - take these, ‘Elephant’s Breath’ is actually midgrey, ‘Blackened’ is actually pale blue, bestselling ‘Down Pipe’ is dark grey while ‘Clooney’ (named after George, natch) is a bluey grey - the number on offer can induce paint chart paralysis. Fifty shades? Forget it - Dulux recently expanded its range and now offers a mind-boggling 557 greys. “Grey’s one of the hardest colours to get right when it comes to decorating your home. Get it wrong and the effect can be cold and energy-sapping, but if it’s right it will look ultra chic and modern, so although it takes a bit of mastering, it’s well worth it,” says Watson-Smyth. “To find the best shade, you need to consider a few key things, including which direction your room faces, what time of day you’ll be in there, the prevailing weather and, last of all, the actual shade you like! “Hopefully, by understanding grey, you’ll be spared from buying a zillion expensive sample pots, having walls daubed with confusing splashes of paint, or painting a whole room in the wrong shade and finding it resembles a prison cell! I’ve done it myself in my kitchen and had to repaint it. Just be warned, once you’ve gone grey, you’ll be hooked.”

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

Making Grey Work How you use a room has a bearing on the intensity of grey you should use. “If you’re in a room mainly in the evening, or always have the lights on, you can afford to opt for a dark shade,” advises Watson-Smyth. “Rooms in use all day long and beyond, such as a kitchen where you also eat in the evening, require a grey which works with natural or electric light. For daylight hours, dark grey will work particularly well if you have a reasonably light room to start with. “Dark walls in a kitchen work well with a light floor and cabinets - choose warm greys for northfacing rooms and cool greys for south-facing rooms. Dining rooms, which often suffer from lack of light, can be painted in dark greys which will conjure an intimate, cosy atmosphere but if this room’s also used in the day, opt for a lighter grey. EXPERT VIEW: “Grey paint is like the chocolate on a biscuit. Just as that will bring out the flavour of the biscuit, so grey brings out the depth of the other colours it sits with,” says Marianne Shillingford, creative director of Dulux.

See The Light Grey’s enduring popularity over the last decade is partly down to the cold, clear Northern light we enjoy in this country - put simply, grey just looks good here - but always evaluate how much natural light a room gets and the direction it comes from.

“For a small and dark north-facing room, don’t fight the space by painting it a pale colour,” says WatsonSmyth. “Instead, embrace its cosiness. Pick a strong shade of grey - as near to black as you dare - and use on every wall. “The warm light of a south-facing room allows you more freedom of choice - pale greys can work as well as dark ones. East and west-facing rooms can be tricky, as the light will change from warm to cold as the sun moves across the sky. The secret is to look for a shade which will warm the cool and tone down the warm. For east-facing rooms, try greys with a blue or green base.” A shade to consider, she suggests, is Little Greene’s French Grey, a warm pale grey which won’t dominate or darken a space. Absolute matt emulsion, £19.25 for 1L (www.littlegreene.com). EXPERT VIEW: “I started by painting one alcove in my house grey - it’s a good way to experiment with a shade - and then fell in love with the colour and painted the whole house in dark grey. It’s the best interiors move I ever made,” enthuses interior designer Abigail Ahern. To be safe, buy a sample pot and apply a generous amount in various places in a room, to see how the colour alters at different times of the day.

Grey Matters Always consider the effect that your existing furniture, textiles and flooring may have on a paint shade - no grey is ever seen in isolation.

“Grey goes with all the other colours on the wheel, so you could throw in some pink until you feel like a

change, and then maybe swap it for orange or yellow. It’s probably more affordable to swap the accessories than the wall colour,” suggests Watson-Smyth. “Be aware, though, that light will bounce off a bright pink sofa and turn walls slightly violet. Modern LEDs often throw out light with a blueish tinge, which will add to the pink purple effect. “If you’re concerned a room may look too plain painted all grey, use a textured wallpaper as a base to add interest. Skirting boards and radiators painted the same grey as walls will open up and enhance a space and painting a ceiling a paler shade of the wall colour, rather than white, can also be effective.” EXPERT VIEW: “Grey has a mercurial personality. It can be masculine or feminine, strong or subtle, depending on how it’s used and the overall design palette,” says American designer Kelly Wearstler. “I love playing shades of grey off metallic, marble or hand-painted silk wall coverings in a room. A monochrome palette of grey and white allows geometric forms, patterns and textures to have a stronger voice.” Shades Of Grey: Decorating With The Most Elegant Of Neutrals by Kate Watson-Smyth is published by Ryland Peters & Small, priced £19.99.

CHILDREN’S PLAY AREAS

Our products are perfect to be used in children’s play areas ensuring they have an eco-friendly and safe environment to play in. Due to the ever-increasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. All the plastic used is recycled in the UK and is a perfect alternative to wood. Our aim is to help rebuild the environment by utilising a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody.

144

The benefits of using Reformed Plastics to create your children’s playground are: • It is UK designed and built • Bespoke design solutions • Safe and secure • No splintering • Maintenance free • Easy to clean • A range of colours and textures • Will not need painting or staining • Will never rot • Sustainable sturdy alternative to traditional materials • Resistant to salt water • Resistant to chemicals • Resistant to insects and bacteria • Resistant to vandalism • Non-slip decking • Lasts for over 50 years • Strong, durable and wear resistant

PARK SCHOOL, BOURNEMOUTH Park School (Bournemouth) have worked with the Reformed Plastics team for some years now. During this time, the school has revamped their outdoor areas in many ways. Investing in a range of products including Picnic tables, kit shelves, a nursery bridge, sandpits, theatre stage, a picket fence and new signage. They even bought our Reformed Plastics train for their playground, which the children love! We received a Fantastic testimonial from their Bursar:

“We’ve been working closely with Reformed Plastics for some years now, and on every project from concept to completion we can always rely on them to deliver a keenly priced product and service that is both Quality and Sustainable, which our children and staff Love! Thanks again and we look forward to the next project.” – Andrew Main (Bursar) Our products are ideal for school environments, as they do not split or splinter, are resistant to bacteria and do not rot. This makes them safer for children to use, as it reduces the risk of injury that may be caused by wooden splinters or rotting, unsanitary wood!


OUTDOOR LIVING

ST.CATHERINE’S SCHOOL, COLEHILL We also supplied St.Catherine’s School of Colehill, Dorset with severall pieces of Multi-coloured Outdoor Furniture to brighten up their Playground. These will last them forever, stay looking great & keep the children safe. By choosing to purchase Reformed Plastics furniture, they have also prevented the equivalent of 32,340 Plastic 500ml Bottles from going into a landfill!

FINANCIAL BENEFTIS The initial amount payable is more than wood, but our products are an investment as they never need to be replaced. When the costs of replacing fencing or garden furniture, both wooden and metal, due to corrosion, fatigue or natural deterioration plus maintenance materials are taken into consideration, solid plastic lumber and furniture quickly pays for itself and in the long run saves a lot of time and money. Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing decision. Although some recycled products have greater up-front costs, their longevity and durability make them a more cost-effective option over the long term.

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

THE NEW VAUXHALL ASTRA SPORT TOURER The new Astra Sport Tourer is now on sale priced from £16,585. One of the UK’s topselling cars, the Astra has sold almost three million in the UK over the last 36 years, including 50,000 in the last 12 months. More than 25 per cent of British motorists have either owned or driven an Astra. The Sports Tourer is based on an all-new lightweight platform with a new design, powertrains and technology. It is built at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port manufacturing plant in Cheshire. It is the only plant to build this body style. The Sports Tourer has proved a popular car in the UK market, with sales making it the third most popular estate car sold in 2015. With a fleet/retail sales split of 80:20, it holds great appeal as a company car but should also appeal to private buyers who are looking for a practical family car.

ROAD TEST: SUZUKI SX4 S-CROSS Sales of compact crossover sports utility vehicles continue to rise, with the Nissan Qashqai, new Mazda CX-3 and the Vauxhall Mokka among the leading contenders, writes NICK FLETCHER. But when compiling a short list, be sure to not overlook the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross, for while perhaps not the first model to spring to mind in this sector, it has a tremendous amount to offer. With its smart well-proportioned design, the S-Cross offers a high-riding driving postion, a versatile interior, excellent ride comfort and surprisingly agile dynamics. Prices start at £13,999 for two wheel drive entry models, which have decent kit including air-con, cruise control, Bluetooth and stop-start as standard. Mid and upper range versions pile on more equipment, and also the option of four wheel drive. There are petrol and diesel versions, 6-speed manual and CVT transmission options and my recent test model was a 118 hp 1.6 litre diesel with CVT transmission and All Grip 4WD. This flagship model, priced at £25,149, has a wealth of features including double sliding paroramic sunroof, leather upholstery with heated front seats, 17-inch alloys, DAB radio,

duel-zone climate control, rear parking camera, keyless entry and start, sat-nav, rear privacy glass, and roof rails. It offers a 0-60 mph time of 13 seconds, top speed of 108 mph and very good fuel economy – 68.2 mpg combined. The exterior styling is sleek and attractive, and the cabin looks robust but still quite classy thanks to use of quality trim materials. The dashboard is effectively laid out for logical use, with big twin-dials, steering wheel mounted buttons and an intuitive touch screen all helping make life easier for the driver. The S-Cross is a tad narrower than its main rivals but still manages its interior space well. There is good head and legroom front and rear, decent boot space at 430 litres, and this can be doubled to 875 litres by folding the rear seats. There are also lots of stowage places for smaller items, including under-floor compartments. Underway, the 1.6 diesel unit is smooth and has good midrange punch, and the CVT transmission on the test model was very slick. Steering feedback is excellent and the suspension set-up enables comfortable ride quality and assured, agile handling. Overall it provides a more agreeable driving experience than most in this sector.

NEW PORSCHE 911 R

148

Just announced, the new Porsche 911 R, powered by a rearmounted 500 hp flat-six engine, with a lightweight body and a six-speed manual gearbox. Only 991 will be available world wide and the UK price is £136,901. The car has a 0-60 mph of 3.7 seconds, a top speed of 201 mph and returns fuel economy 21.2 mpg combined. Porsche describes the 911 R as “a thoroughbred driving machine with technology from the race track.” It is fitted as standard with specially-tuned rear-axle steering, direct turn-in and precise handling is guaranteed while maintaining high stability. In addition, the mechanical rear limited slip differential ensures maximum traction. Motorsport development has adapted the control systems of the Porsche Stability Management for the 911 R, tailoring the car for “a focused and authentic driving experience.” For everyday versatility, a lift system can also be ordered: it raises ground clearance of the front axle by approximately 30 mm at the touch of a button. The driver and front passenger sit in carbon-fibre bucket seats, trimmed with bespoke fabric centre panels. Ahead of the driver sits an R-specific 360 mm diameter GT sport steering wheel, and a short shift gearlever.


MOTORING

SPORTAGE RECORD SALES

ROAD TEST: VOLKSWAGEN TOURAN SE FAMILY First launched back in 2003, the Volkswagen Touran has been a strong seller in the mid-size MPV sector and the latest version, with revised styling and extra equipment, aims to bolster its position as one of the stars of the class, writes NICK FLETCHER. Prices start from around £22,000 though you don’t get much standard kit at entry level. Most buyers will see bestvalue among the mid-range SE models which are very well equipped. The latest (and slightly larger) models have sharper visual styling and a fresh-look and more logical dashboard. There are no less than 47 cubby or pocket stowage places, easy to operate flat-fold seats for load versatility and decent space for five occupants. There are two extra pull-up seats at the back but they are in effect just for children. All seats fold individually and maximum loadspace with all seats down is 1,857 litres. There are petrol and diesel engines, and standard 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG auto gearbox. My test model came with smanual gearbox and an outstanding 2.0 litre 148 hp diesel engine. In SE Family trim,

it is at the top end of the price range, laden with kit and costing £28,215. I found this engine an exceptionally smooth, quiet and economical 2.0 litre diesel unit with excellent power delivery, good mid-range punch and very impressive fuel economy. On one of my regular 450-mile test runs using city and rural roads and the motorway, and driving without special effort at achieving economy, I got a remarkable 57 mpg, quite close to the official fuel figure of 64.2 mpg combined. The 0-60 mph time is 9.3 seconds and top speed is 129 mph. The Touran is pleasant to drive, doesn’t feel over-large, provides good steering feedback and has agile assured handling and a comfortable ride. It scores highly for its overall functionality and you can clearly see why the Touran has notched up worldwide sales of 1.9 million – with 100,000 of those in the UK. Standard kit on the SE Family test version is extensive and includes extra-large panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, an enhanced sat-nav system with 6.5 inch touch screen, and Pre-Crash preventative occupant protection.

Kia has seen the Sportage enter the Top Ten UK bestsellers as the all-new model enjoyed its first month on sale. With 2,889 new cars delivered to customers in February, Kia saw its market share reach 3.46 per cent and for the first two months of 2016 the brand recorded a sales figure of 7,955 – a 3.14 per cent market share. In its first month on sale Sportage contributed to a stunning performance with 1,521 vehicles delivered to customers and dealers report huge demand for March deliveries. More than 5,000 customer orders have been placed since the latest generation of Kia’s stand-out compact SUV hit showrooms on 5 February. Kia’s February sales total was up almost 25 per cent on last year’s figure of 2,334 and in the first two months of the year Kia outperformed the 2015 figure of 7,248 by almost 10 per cent. The all-new Sportage range features 18 variants with four engines and three transmissions. Prices range from £17,995 to £31,645.

MASERATI LEVANTE DEBUTMULTISPACE XTC BLUE Maserati’s first SUV, the Levante, has been unveiled and will cost around £55,000 when it goes on UK sale later this Spring. The new Maserati SUV is based on the Quattroporte and Ghibli architecture, and features sophisticated suspension double-wishbone on the front axle and multi-link on the rear, combined with electronically controlled damping, four corner air-springs providing 5 dynamic ride levels. The Levante is fitted with a 3 litre V6 Twin-Turbo petrol engine with either 350hp or 430hp, and a 275hp 3 litre V6 Turbo Diesel. All engines are combined with the “Q4” intelligent all-wheel drive system - which can transfer torque between the axles instantaneously when required - and an 8-speed automatic gearbox, with integrated Start&Stop System. The Levante S (430hp) covers 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, and has a top speed of 150mph. Driver assistance systems are available, including adaptive cruise control with automatic Start&Stop function, forward collision warning, automatic brake assist system and lane departure warning. Further options include blind spot alert, surround view camera and a powerlift tailgate. Two extended feature packs are available for the Levante, a Luxury-Package and a Sport-Pack.

HEALTH & BEAUTY The latest beauty tips and treatments from the owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Academy, Sophie Tamagna

SO WAS IT NEW YEAR – NEW YOU? So as we head into April it’s time to reflect on whether we stuck to any of those New Year’s Resolutions we made…? Ok so if you’re anything like me you’ve probably forgotten what they even were!

3. Most people don’t realize that the sun’s UV rays are still strong even when it’s cold out. While most of your body parts are covered, be sure to wear sunscreen on your face and hands—even in the winter and on cloudy days. 4. Take a multivitamin every day.

But hey, who needs a date change to make serious changes in our lifestyles….it’s never too late to make changes and here’s a few I suggest The start of a new year is ironically characterized by a night of heavy drinking followed by a day we’re supposed to start changing our ways. Hmm … not sure who made the rules here, but it seems like we’re set up for failure because by February most of our best intentions for losing weight, quitting smoking or limiting Facebook time to an hour a day fall by the wayside. 1. Change your moisturizer to one that has an SPF. Already use one? Use a heavier moisturizer in the winter to protect your skin. Try Dermalogica’s Intensive Moisture Balance RRP 100ml – £55.50 2. Commit to a skin-care routine. Try a new regimen for at least two weeks before changing products, as this is the amount of time it usually takes for a new products results to show.

5. Work out at least three times a week for a naturally glowing complexion, not to mention, a hot bod! 6. Start using an eye cream. It’s never too early or late to fight fine lines and wrinkles. Try Dermalogicas Age Reversal Eye Complex for noticeable results RRP £59.40 7. Get your skin analysed at Chic. A Chic skin Care specialist can help you better understand the changes and problems that are brewing underneath your skin. 8. Eat more good-for-your-skin foods like salmon, almonds, and berries. 9. Exfoliate once a week using mild soap and a washcloth or exfoliating cloth or brush. We love the Dermalogica Ultimate Buffing cloth RRP £12.65

ENJOY YOU TiME FOR LESS TREATMENTS INCLUDE

10. Schedule a beauty date with your BFF, sister, or mum. That way, you can both feel indulged and have some quality catch-up time. The Chic Twin Treat – 2 therapists in one of our unique Twin Treatment rooms. Treatments include 2 Back Neck and Shoulder Massages and 2 Express Facials £90 11. And last but by no means least….drink more water! This is totally a habit forming exercise… once you get into the habit it becomes the norm and the results you will see in your skin, overall health and energy levels will be well worth it!

HEALTH & FITNESS Charlie Lowe from the fastest growing bootcamp ‘Wassmuffin Fitter Than fit’ talks Fitness, well being, healthy eating and of course Thai Boxing.

QUIT TALKING START DOING, NO EXCUSE!

So I thought this week I’d talk about the excuses I come across as to why people cant make it to bootcamp. And give you some reasons as to why you CAN! I’m too unfit/I need to get fit first Ok. This is one of my personal favourites. This is what we’re here for. Getting people fit is what we do. Yes we have some fit people that come. We got them there. We also have some people that aren’t fit but are on their way. The workouts are adaptable to any level. And personally one of the things I love about this job is seeing the improvement clients have made whether that be doing their first full press-up or beating their personal best on a 10k. I’m not sure about punching and kicking things I’ve never done it before We are a Muay Thai bootcamp so there are times where we do punch and kick things. Things being pads. I know a few of my clients have been a little weary of this side of the bootcamp but have actually ended up completely loving it and even gone on to do our more technical Thai classes in the evening. The Thai boxing in Bootcamp is very basic as it’s used to keep the heart rate high, burn fat and tone up. It’s also only part of the session. We do so many other things sometimes we only do pad work for 10 mins at the end of a session. Just totally depends on the day. You won’t know if you enjoy it or not until you try it. It’s too early I’m not going to deny the morning Bootcamps are early. 6:30am. But let me talk about the benefits

of that. Once you have finished that hour work out you’re done for the day. The rest of the day is your own. No thinking about going to the gym after work. No trying to muster up the energy to get yourself off the sofa in the evening. And it can really set you up for the day too. A lot of clients tell me how it means they got more done and don’t feel anytime was wasted. You feel fresh, energised and ready to attack the day. There are showers based at the YMCA so if you are tight for time we have the use of those. If you really cant make it we also have classes at 9:15 or early and later evening classes (6:30pm and 8:00pm respectively). So there’s some thing to suit everyone. I don’t really like being shouted at There maybe times when I raise my voice. I like to call it motivational! To be fair I don’t need to shout. People come for a reason and to reach goals. I ask people to do things to help them reach these goals. If you don’t want to do it you don’t have to do it. Simple. But if you pay for a class I would say you probably want to get your moneys worth. And what we do seems to work (I would just like to say I can’t speak for Michael as far as shouting goes)! I’m too fat, slow, weak, old... None of these excuses apply. If you want to make a change you need to come. We have clients from 5-65. Of all shapes and sizes and all abilities and levels. They are with us for a number of different reasons

from confidence to fitness to weight loss. I know I say this time and time again, but I’m genuinely honoured to have such an amazing, supportive, lovely group who are all there for each other. I completely understand the barriers of initially starting a new class but once you come to us you’ll see why we can make a difference. We can make you faster, stronger, slimmer maybe not younger but certainly feel it! And all in a supportive environment. I’ve heard you do bootcamp on the beach, I don’t really want to train outside in the winter Well you don’t have to. We do have some outside classes, even running throughout the winter. We meet at Boscombe pier and move around that area. But our morning bootcamps are based at the YMCA in Bournemouth, Westover Road, so nearly all our morning classes are inside. Occasionally we will take the group outside weather permitting but also depending on what the group want as a whole. The outside classes aren’t always on the beach either they can be anywhere in that vicinity. We have so many classes to choose from and based between central Bournemouth outside at Boscombe and our gym in Boscombe. There’s bound to be something to suit everyone. There’s free parking to be found around all areas which is a great added bonus. Basically we have a lot of options and only a few classes outside in the winter so the chances of you going home horridly sandy are slim. YES I have an answer for everything!! Contact us: Charlie 07968855163 info@fitterthanfit.co.uk www.fitterthanfit.co.uk

7 DAYS OF FREE BOOTCAMP FOR EVERYONE! We are giving all HOUSE Magazine readers 7 days of FREE Bootcamp sessions during April. It is held in the YMCA sports hall on Westover Road Bournemouth (opposite the pavilion), 6.30am Monday - Friday, all you need to do is turn up. For more information contact Charlie 07968855163 153


FOOD & DRINK

REVIEWED

We wanted to know what all the fuss was about...

ESCOFFIER BRASSERIE Our food future The Escoffier Restaurant, located inside the Bournemouth and Poole College campus, is a fully functioning fine dining restaurant, whereby the students from the College’s reputable ‘Hospitality and Culinary Course’, our working to cook and serve for you. It’s a really rather delightful experience that harnesses many of the classic fine dining traditions; from the service to the food. I would hate to describe our experience as something that was ‘good for a student’s effort’, because it was above and beyond that. If anything, these guys are at the top of their game – learning and treasuring the fine art of hospitality, where most servers in restaurants today, tend to just fall into such positions. We arrived ready and waiting to be seated, when we met our charming host for the evening Clare Stanton. Just a side note, be sure to make a reservation, they have quite the list of regulars and they often book weeks in advance. It’s important to go in with an open mind, if it’s a lunchtime seating your going for, keep in mind that it is a leisurely affair. You’ll want time to enjoy and you’ll definitely want to ensure enough time (and room) for dessert. The restaurant speaks of a characteristic French brasserie; crisp white tablecloths, silverware, flowing drapes and twinkly orb-like fairy lights above. Clare introduced us to our waiter for today’s service, James, James Sewyer specifically. The level of service was utterly by the book - they didn’t miss a trick. The homemade artisan bread, the menu fully explained and our glasses were never empty. All small things, that make a huge difference to the comfort and satisfaction of your guests. In fact, looking around every table seemed well looked after and entertained. Well, all good tales contain word of the grand banquet, so on we go…

154

To start: ‘Pea and mint tortellini, with fresh goats curd’ - Simple, balanced and delicate. Though this dish doesn’t throttle you with the punchy flavour, it’s perfect in a more sensitive sense. Pea and mint have been supporting each other from day one, a typical fine dining match made in heaven. Pasta; perfection, but the goats cheese curd is what really grasped my attention. Call it a cheesy obsession, but I longed for more of it – a sprinkle more and I’d have been sold. For main: ‘Herb crusted Pollock with cauliflower puree and grilled potatoes’. This dish was everything I was hoping for. It encompassed classic cooking, with a modern twist, and it was stunning. The fish was to die for, translucent white flesh with a top-notch crispy skin, better yet, herb encrusted crispy skin. The cauliflower puree worked perfectly, acting as a creamy partner to the crunchy texture of the fish skin, and the potatoes – oh my. Similar to fondant potato; soft in the center with a grilled buttery jacket which added a pleasant saltiness to the apposing sweet puree. As our meal was winding down, and the dessert options were posed, we couldn’t help but be distracted by the show that was going on at the table next to us. Something that hospitality has lost is the ‘pizazz’, a little showmanship. It’s strange, whilst bars and clubs have increased the entertainment aspect of service, with acts such as flaring (the throwing, catching and flipping of bottles), proving popular amongst customers; the alternative dining flare has declined. At Escoffier, they are training their students in traditional service styles including the infamous ‘Flambé’. The cart with the desserts appeared, complete with a mobile gas stove, and four ingredients: sugar, butter, oranges, and brandy. If you’ve never witnessed a live flambé before, I suggest you book up soon because it is nothing short of thoroughly engaging. I decided to spoil myself with the dessert of the day: ‘a deconstructed raspberry ripple’. Deconstructed desserts are a firm favourite these days, not only do they look stunning, it can be (when done right) an

exciting exploration of flavour for the diner; trying everything individually and then bringing all of the components together to the grand finale. After all, where’s the fun in an already constructed dessert? On the plate, or rather slate in this case, were a few delicate scoops or air-whipped raspberry mousse, and it was divine. Mousses are always so pleasurable to consume: soft, silky and that gentle bubble bursting sound that come when crushing it between your tongue and the roof of your mouth it’s a real sensory experience. To then have the added delight of top quality fresh fruit, well I was hooked. Balancing the slight tartness of the berries were tiny cube of white chocolate gelatin, sporadic twirls of milk chocolate, and a brush stroke’s worth of sugary sweet puree. Life was good. I couldn’t believe it, there I was having been spoilt with the most decadent lunch I have had to date, and all housed within the Bournemouth and Poole College. Their lunchtime set menus are always changing to offer variety and to work within the bounds of seasonal produce. The price however, remains the same: three courses will set you back a mere £10.95, and two will be just £8.95. For a meal such as the one I had I would feel more than comfortable being handed a bill for three times that amount, and then some. Thank you to the fantastic students who served us, and to those who slaved away in the kitchen preparing and cooking all of the stunning food. You have stunned and impressed us, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you all. Special mentions go to Chef Martin Tarbuck, Chef Paul Daymon, Hannah, Ingrid our bartender, and to all of the fantastic students in the kitchen that day.

the student lettings market leader

Calling all landlords with student accommodation!!! “I was using a university affiliated letting agent who paid me a monthly rent of £1033. Then mystudentpod let my property and increased my monthly income by £370 a month. That gave me an additional income of over £4000 a year!!!!” (Mrs Clark) “mystudentpod recommended I carry out some minor improvements to my student property to make it more appealing. They arranged works totalling £1670, that I could pay off with no interest over 11 months. As a result of the work they let my property for £100 a month more than it was achieving before. The actual works cost me an extra £51 a month for 11 months and now my property is in much better condition.” (Mr Rogers)

We have let nearly all or our property. We need your property now!! Come to the experts in student lettings!!! If you have a student property, or a property you feel may be suitable for student accommodation, call Phil Taylor on 01202 533666 for an informal and friendly chat.
