THE SUN SHINES FOR THE SANDBANKS BOAT SHOW Visitors to the Sandbanks Boat Show this weekend were wowed by the variety of boating brands and marine products on show at Salterns Marina in the stunning Poole Harbour in Dorset. Gracing the marina were some of the finest luxury high-end British motor yachts ranging from Fairline, Princess , Broom and Sunseeker to an extensive and unprecedented mix of sports cruisers, high performance craft, fishing boats, ribs and jet skis. There was much to see and do. The RNLI was in attendance, hosting a free lifejacket clinic and giving vital safety advice. There was an opportunity to ‘win a berth’, courtesy of Salterns Marina, worth up to £13,000. The film crew for the new series of Ben Fogle’s ITV programme, Harbour Lives, were on site too filming the weekend’s activity and action and using the opportunity to meet boat owners, buyers and people in the trade and capturing how important boating is to the area’s economy. Jon Eads, Director of the Salterns Group said, “We are really delighted with the success that the Sandbanks Boat Show has enjoyed this weekend. We’ve had an excellent, steady footfall of visitors. I understand from many of the exhibitors that boats and equipment have been sold and that a significant number of good enquiries have been received. It’s certainly been a great weekend for visitors and exhibitors alike.” Jon continued, “Boat shows are hugely important to the leisure marine industry and the smaller regional events such as ours definitely compliment the larger national boat shows held in January and September each year. For this show we are incredibly fortunate to be located in Poole Harbour which is without doubt one of the best boating locations on the South Coast. “ Jon reflected on recent years and said, “The Marine industry has suffered over the last 5 years but this year we are seeing much more positivity returning and confidence is certainly growing. This weekend we’ve been selling lots of jet skis too and not just to youngsters but to a mix of clients, many over 50. People want to be on the water.” “I would like to thank Poole based company, Coleman Insurance Brokers who kindly sponsored our exhibitors BBQ and drinks reception on Saturday evening. It was a fantastic end to day one of our event and an excellent way for our exhibitors to network with colleagues in the industry. Salterns Marina Ltd and Brokerage provides and sells boats and it’s good to be working and partnered with Coleman. They are an important element to our business and it’s good to have them represented at the boat show and to be able to interact with them face to face. ” Tony Pauffley, Yacht Development Executive at Coleman Insurance Brokers said, “I am really pleased to be here supporting our marine trade customers. At Coleman we feel strongly that spending time with boat owners in their leisure time is very valuable and important in order to build long term relationships. It’s great to be engaging with the new generation of boat owners. “ Tony added, “The UK’s global dominance of financial insurance markets really helps Coleman Insurance Brokers. The market is definitely expanding and we have recently been placing business far afield.” Coleman and Coleman Insurance Brokers are trading styles of E Coleman & Co Ltd which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

ACTRESS HOPES TO MAKE QUANTUM SUPPORT FOR AIR FESTIVAL IMPRESSION AS HOSPICE PATRON PATRON’S 100 CLUB! Lewis-Manning in Poole has announced that local actress and television celebrity Debra Stephenson, star of Bad Girls, Coronation Street and The Impressions Show, has become a Patron for the hospice, which supports over 650 local people each year living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Debra, who starred as Jack in Lighthouse’s panto Jack and the Beanstalk last year, has been a big supporter of the charity since she moved to the area a few years ago and has been involved in many of its events including the Ladies Lunch, Summer Fayre, Starlight Stroll, James Bond ‘Skyfall’ charity night and more recently hosted the Stars In Your Eyes night at the Barrington Theatre in Ferndown. Debra was first introduced to the hospice when she opened its Ashley Cross shop while starring in Peter Pan at Lighthouse in 2010. Elizabeth Purcell, CEO at Lewis-Manning Hospice, said, “We are absolutely delighted that Debra Stephenson has accepted the invitation from the Chairman and Board to become a Patron of Lewis-Manning Hospice. Debra has been

such a committed supporter since she moved into the area and we have all been very grateful to her for her time and energy. Debra joins a growing group of influential and well known people who have formalised their relationship with the hospice at this exciting time in our development. Welcome Debra!” Debra herself said, “I feel honoured to have been asked to become a Patron for Lewis-Manning Hospice. I’m proud to support the wonderful work they do to help local people with life-limiting illnesses. I was so impressed when I first visited the hospice and have been keen to be involved in fundraising events and to be a friend to the hospice in general. It is such a beautiful and peaceful haven. The staff really are wonderful and totally committed to making Lewis-Manning a very special sanctuary for patients to find the care and positive support they really need. Lewis-Manning Hospice has now begun opening its 15 ensuite bedrooms on the ground floor, to offer respite, rehabilitation and end of life care.

David Bailey, the Patron’s Ambassador for the Bournemouth Air Festival Patrons 100 Club was delighted to welcome on board a new Patron, Jacqueline Entwistle of Quantum Recruitment, at a recent Air Festival Patrons event. David, who is also the Hotel Director at the Hotel Miramar said, “Since setting up the Patron’s Scheme we have successfully sponsored the twilight events at the Air Festival and also been able to make substantial donations each

year to nominated charities, including The Jon Egging Trust. This has added an exciting new dimension to the Air Festival programme, as well as affording local business people the opportunity to get involved and enjoy some exclusive membership privileges.” Managing Partner at Quantum Recruitment, Jacqueline Entwistle, advised how it was two of her passions in life that had driven her to join the Patron’s 100 Club; Planes and Bournemouth! Jacqueline explained

how her love for planes was born from her early career when she traded in military aircraft spares. Jacqueline enthused, “Being totally passionate about Bournemouth is another reason that I am keen to support the annual Air Festival. Jacqueline said, “I love the town! It’s such a vibrant place to live and work.” Anyone interested in learning more about becoming a Patron is asked to contact david@miramar-bournemouth. com

DRIVING THRILLS If you have ever wondered whether it is possible to drive a car with your hands tied behind your back, then you can get the answer from House magazine motoring writer Nick Fletcher’s new crime thriller Snapshot. The book is a collection of eight novellas - one set in Poole -featuring ex-journalist turned private eye Max Slater, subject of two previous novels by Nick. The stories are set in the UK, France, Spain, and California and involve Max using some of his journalistic skills in a series of offbeat adventures including

the murder of a photographer. In this story, set in and around Poole, Max is forced into driving a BMW with his hands tied behind him! “Crime fiction is a great contrast to writing road tests, but I always try to include one or two car-related incidents into my novels,” said Nick. “So far, my impact on the best-seller list is too small be to measured, but I live in hope! “ Snapshot is published in paperback and is available on Amazon, and direct from Nick’s website: www.nickfletcher.co.uk

ADVICE

PROPERTY VIDEOS – THE FUTURE OF PROPERTY SALES Buying property is a complicated business. The details have to be right and the property has to look and feel right too. This blend of hard-headed realism and emotional response requires sensitivity but also having all the facts to hand. As a seller it can be nerve-wracking and as a buyer it can be a real roller-coaster. It doesn’t seem to matter whether it’s a family home, a timeshare in the sun or a commercial property, the process is still demanding on both parties. Marketing is crucial. Kirstie Allsopp may insist that it’s location, location, location that sells but everybody knows that the decision to buy a property is based on how you feel when you see it. And before you can have a feeling about it, you have to see the property in question. As a result, property marketing videos have become one of the biggest advantages available to a seller.

PROPERTY MARKETING VIDEOS – THE LOW DOWN There are five reasons that video marketing gives you an advantage: 1. It drives more web traffic to a website – that means that potential buyers are more likely to find the property they’re seeking 2. It’s cost effective – a professional quality, high definition video is surprisingly viable in price 3. It makes a property more enticing. Whether you’re an agent offering videos of many properties or a vendor wishing to sell your property quickly and at a great price, the ability to ‘visit’ a property and move around inside it from the comfort of their own sofa makes property videos an exciting idea to many potential purchasers. 4. The property is available for viewing 24/7. No extra costs for staff to accompany viewings, no hassle about keeping your home clean and tidy just in case somebody asks to come round. Video is always welcoming. 5. Multi-channel viewing used to be buzzwords for retailers only. But today, whether they find your property on YouTube, through property websites, via our home page or on your own website, a property video is an instantly accessible way for potential buyers to explore a property. Evidence bears these claims out. Video improves viewing-to-sale conversions by as much as 403%.

10

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS A video film also engages the emotions in a way that static words and flat images cannot. 84% of buyers search for a new property online – which means that they can experience your video, share it with family and friends and get a sense of your property, massively reducing the number of time-wasting viewings and bringing a higher number of seriously interested potential purchasers or renters to your door. And the reason they reach you is that they’ve already felt what it would be like to be in your property, and they’ve enjoyed the sensation. With a video the heart is engaged, and when a professionally produced and edited video is used, the facts can be clearly expressed too: local schools, transport routes, parks and shops can be included in the presentation to answer potential questions during online viewing. Property marketing videos make sense for the head and the heart, and make selling your property easy

If you’re ready to bring the dynamic potential of video marketing to your business, or talk about any print advertising call us and to explore how we can help. Call our creative team on 01202 200930 to find out more.

DOWNSIZING Finding the right property to suit your lifestyle During the ‘downturn years’ of 2008 to 2013, a large percentage of property transactions were triggered by vendors selling up and moving to a more suitable property to meet their requirements for later in life.

The top motivators for downsizing Easier home management

Indeed, 58% of all downsizers in the UK are over 65. In Canford Cliffs we have also seen a growth in vendors downsizing from 11% in 2012 to 15% in 2013.

Reducing running and maintenance costs Surplus of internal space

Matching your residential need with your life stage The term ‘rightsizing’ rather than ‘downsizing’ is designed to reflect how people have different residential needs at different life stages. For the homeowning older generations, motivators for selling a family home and finding a new one are varied. Many people are looking to move as they no longer want the responsibility of living in a large house with expansive gardens and high running and maintenance costs, to freeing up funds to help children onto the property ladder.

Releasing equity

Surplus of external space

Reducing debt Releasing funds to help children onto the property ladder Health reasons

A rising trend According to Savills research, those rightsizing or downsizing by choice will make this move in the run up to retirement or immediately after and

£

Potential for future property taxation

such homeowners are thinking about lifestyle preferences. Currently, two-thirds of all housing wealth tied up in owner occupied homes is held by the over 60s. Around 55,000 homeowners downsize each year, releasing equity of around £7 billion. Nationally at Savills, we are seeing that rightsizers are selling a property worth on average £1.46 million and buying a property worth on average £990,000. Across the South, downsizers are selling a property worth on average £1.04 million and buying a property worth on average £860,000. “The prime markets face some challenges over the next five years, given the focus on the taxation of high value property that has already resulted in increased stamp duty above £2 million,” explains Sophie Chick of Savills Research. “With an election in 2015,” she continues, “any further changes to the taxation of high value property risks a period of sobriety. However, on the assumption that sense prevails and a full scale mansion tax is avoided, we expect a continuation in the growth cycle post the 2015 election.”

ADD AMAZING CHARM TO YOUR HOME SOMERS HOUSE STYLE We’re finally leaving winter behind, yet our homes can look as though they’re still suffering from its effects. Thankfully, a few changes, small but significant, can spruce things up. It’s all too easy to get used to cluttered surfaces, especially in the kitchen, so make a clean sweep and store away all but the essentials and allow attractive items, like quirky mismatched crockery centre stage.

Everyone’s loyalty and support is the secret behind our success and leading position within the sports industry and for this, we are extremely grateful!” Roger Woodall commented, “To be able to sell out the campsite to 3,000 people four weeks in advance was a huge achievement for us and an important reminder as to what the festival has grown into over the past 7 years. It is a credit to our team who are now attracting individuals and teams from around the world.” With this year’s event proving to be the biggest and best to date, there is already a large amount of anticipation as to what 2015 will bring.

ASK THE EXPERT Margaret Annable Paul Watts Estate Agent

LEASEHOLD PROPERTIES We are looking for a two bedroom flat to purchase, and friends have told us that we must make sure any lease is long enough. Can you tell us about that, please? (Mr A) Your friends are quite right about that. If you have never purchased a leasehold property before, it is a little different to buying a freehold property. To go back to basics, with a freehold, the owner owns the whole of the property in perpetuity, until sold. When purchasing a property on a lease, effectively that is renting the property in question for the length of time of the lease, usually paying ground rent to the owner (the freeholder or lessor), and if no action was taken before, at the end of the lease period the property would revert to the freeholder. In reality, that situation would not arise, as clearly action would be taken by the leasehold owner (lessee) to either extend the lease, or acquire a share of or the whole freehold, but the value of the property is affected adversely as the length of lease left decreases. The most significant issue for many prospective purchasers is that lenders are not so keen to grant a mortgage on a leasehold property with less than 80 years left on the lease. Even if you can buy the property without the need for a mortgage, you need to bear in mind the adverse affect on future value and saleability of an ever shortening lease. Current legislation affords a leaseholder the right to apply for an extension of a lease on a flat for another 90 years on top of the unexpired term, as long as you have owned the leasehold property for at least 2 years. The freeholder will charge a premium for this and hopefully agreement can be reached amicably, but if not legal advice may be required. It is also possible to approach the freeholder, either alone or together with other leaseholders in the same building, to purchase the freehold interest. This can be a lengthy process, and again specialist legal advice may be helpful. It is always important to discuss such legal matters with a solicitor, but it is best to target a flat that is being sold with a lease of well over 80 years (and some are 999 years from the start), or with a share of the freehold of the building.

ASK THE EXPERT Tony Peters Planit Mortgages Your local mortgage adviser Leverage! I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Jacob and Reece of team Athena, the Young enterprise team I mentor on achieving the best product award at this year’s Dorset Finals. They wowed the judges with their delivery and confidence despite being the youngest team in the final. As a mentor, my role is to facilitate, encourage and cajole the students into producing their best efforts so that they get a sense of responsibility and ownership of a cause. Most people need a helping hand when it comes to starting a business or property adventure and the right advice is most important. The best way of getting the maximum return for your efforts is to leverage it. For example when it comes to rental properties, it’s better to have 2 properties leveraged at 50% loan to value (LTV) than it is to own 1 property outright. Let’s say you have £100,000 to invest in property and let’s see what you can do with it…

Scenario 1 You buy a single property for £100,000 and rent it out for £500 per month. You keep it for 10 years and it doubles in value. Your return is 6% annually and 100% on the capital. Not bad but you could do so much better…..read on.

Scenario 2 You buy 2 properties each for £100,000 with £50,000 deposits and £50,000 mortgages. You get buy to let mortgages at 3% and pay £130 per month interest only for each one. You still receive £500 per month for each property in rent and you keep both of them for 10 years where they double in value. Your return is £1000 - £260 per month = £740 which gives an annual return of 8.88% You now have 2 properties worth £200,000 each after 10 years and £100,000 in mortgages. You have turned £100,000 into £300,000 and the capital return is now 200%. You could actually get 4 properties with deposits of 25% taking your annual return to over 14% and your capital return to a whopping 600%!! The returns above are purely speculative. We have no way of knowing whether house prices will double in the next 10 years or not. There are many ways of financing your first deal or project. You would be surprised at where you can get funding from for the right project and where you have leverage. A good adviser is not just a mortgage broker. They are your leverage to a better financial future. If you are interested in getting into any type of property or business venture and are wondering about the best way to raise finance to fund your idea, contact us and we will be able to tailor an individual plan to suit your own unique financial position.

ASK THE EXPERT Neil McKeon Planning Consultant I’ve just had a planning application refused, what can I do? Why not appeal it? All planning applications have a right of appeal to the Secretary of State although in practice appeals are determined by an independent Inspector from the Planning Inspectorate. The right of appeal is one of the most important features of the planning system helping to keep local Councils in check by enabling decisions to be reviewed by an independent experienced expert who is more geographically and politically detached. An appeal must be submitted within 6 months of the decision date (12 weeks for a householder application). There are three methods of appeal – written representations, informal hearing and public inquiry. The Planning Inspectorate will decide which method will be used depending on the complexity of the case. There is also an opportunity to apply for a costs award if you feel the Council has acted unreasonably in determining the planning application or during the appeal process. An appeal can also be a key part of a planning strategy – sometimes you don’t know if you have maximised the development potential of a site unless you have tested the limits on appeal. Sometimes an appeal is the only way of overcoming a local “political” objection. We represent developers, architects and private householders on a wide variety of planning appeals and have achieved great success in challenging the decisions of numerous Local Planning Authorities throughout the south of England and beyond. Recent successful appeals include a planning consent to extend a semi-detached dwelling at Bramdean, Hampshire. Whilst Winchester City Council refused the application on the basis of the extension exceeding the 25% increase in floor area, as per the adopted local plan policy CE.23, we successfully persuaded the Planning Inspector that this policy was out-of-date and inconsistent with the National Planning Policy Framework. This decision has future ramifications for others looking to expand similar small countryside dwellings in the Winchester District. Closer to home, Pure Town Planning recently won an appeal for a two house backland development at Ensbury Park in Bournemouth together with a full award of costs to the appellant. The application had been refused at Committee despite the Council’s planning officers recommending approval. Pure Town Planning was able to convince the Inspector that not only was the proposal perfectly acceptable, but that the Council had acted unreasonably in taking a decision which simply could not be convincingly defended. As such, he made a full award of costs which means the Council had to pay our clients costs associated with making the appeal. If you wish to challenge the Council’s decision on your planning application then why not ask Pure Town Planning  for advice as to whether we think your proposal has a good chance on appeal. You never know you may end up with the Council picking up the bill…

INTERIORS

ROOM FOR PLAY

Children and a calm, stylish home don’t always go hand in hand. But you can create spaces to suit grown-ups and youngsters alike, as family lifestyle expert Ashlyn Gibson tells Gabrielle Fagan. If your home is feeling like a battleground after the school holidays, as you and your children fight for territory, it could be time for a new strategy. Before you consider moving or boarding schools - or simply resign yourself to chaos until they’ve flown the nest - there is another answer: creating rooms that suit your need for stylish spaces as well as theirs for play areas. “Children and decor aren’t generally regarded as a match made in heaven. Sticky fingers, the patter of tiny, muddy feet and an evergrowing collection of plastic toys can take their toll on rooms,” says Ashlyn Gibson, author of Creative Family Home; a blueprint for transforming a home that appeals equally to grown-ups and youngsters. All that’s needed, she believes, is a little imagination, a dash of flair, and with your children’s help, a

family home can be one that’s fun and which you’re proud to show off. “Bringing up children is an adventure and living with them should be fun,” she says. “It’s all about capturing their spirit of wonder, discovery and sense of fun, and giving them child-friendly spaces which encourage them to be imaginative. Spaces where you can all relax, and they can express their personalities.” Key ingredients, she says, are practical layouts, easy-to-clean durable surfaces able to withstand the rough and tumble of family life, and ideally a neutral backdrop so that it’s easy to add vivid colour and pattern, which children love, in everything from fabrics and furnishings through to their toys, collections and artwork. “With a bit of ingenuity you can showcase their possessions to great effect, and have a home that never looks stagnant or dull. A colourful, visually stimulating home is an inspiring place for everyone, young and old.” Irene Desk, £492, Sisters Guild

PLAY & DISPLAY The Little Things Craft Company

Children's toys seem to have a life of their own, apparently cloning themselves over night so they constantly overflow storage boxes and invade every corner. Make stumbling over them a distant memory by providing child-friendly storage. "A home free of clutter will have a relaxed, calm vibe which the whole family will enjoy," says Gibson. "Portable storage, a box on castors or a vintage suitcase, is versatile and allows children to transport contents from room to room." Tip: Have a clear-out of toys regularly but do it with your children - don't rush them, because choosing what to discard is all part of the process of growing up. Donate unwanted items to a charity shop or let them boost pocket money by selling at car boot sales.

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals Veronica Strongman (Sales & Lettings Director), Des Simmons (Managing Director), Anita Smith (Holiday Lettings Director)

ASK THE EXPERT Bournecoast Property Agents Should I manage my own Buy-to-Let holiday property? Much depends on personal circumstances which may dictate one route or another as it is clearly impractical to arrange lets, cleaning and maintenance if you live away from the property. With current financial pressures some owners are looking at letting their holiday properties on their own to cut costs and avoid agents’ fees.  However, Bournecoast would suggest that they think long and hard before going down this route for many reasons. A few years ago a holiday landlord decided that the best thing would be to use an agent whilst at the same time they advertised themselves on a website, putting up an ad to see what happened. Immediately the landlord’s email became bombarded with enquiries for the already over-subscribed busiest weeks in the year in peak season and in the meantime the holiday letting agent was successful in getting out articles in the regional and national press on the property, let several of the ‘less exciting’ weeks in low season and weekends that were out of those popular summer months, helped the landlord to set the prices and ensured that she was compliant in line with current regulations. In the first year, the agent consistently secured lettings in the shoulder months. To fill the summer months is much easier, particularly if, like this landlord, your property is sitting in a prime seaside location but the real art is keeping the bookings flowing right across the year and out of season. By the second year, the landlord was taking only about a third of the bookings whilst the agent was out achieving the landlord’s bookings through a steady marketing strategy of the whole marketing mix, using advertising in national publications, subscribing to the most popular holiday letting websites and ongoing publicity regarding the area.  This pattern continued for five years until the landlord’s bookings took a nose dive – which was attributed to the economic climate.

Earlier this year the combination boiler in our rented house stopped working, so we had no hot water or central heating. The only heating in the house was the electric fire in the front room. We rang our landlord and he said it had happened before and said we needed to top up the water pressure on the boiler via small tap on the boiler. We could not find this tap anywhere and called him back. He then said he was not prepared to pay a plumber to come out for such a small task and said he would come over the following day. Five days later he turned up saying he had got something in his eye and had to go to hospital and could not drive. Meanwhile we had had no heating and no hot water for almost a week during one of the wettest and coldest parts of the year. Can I refuse to pay rent for those five days or reduce my rent, or even end my contract early?

It is the landlord’s responsibility to ensure that the boiler is working correctly for the provision of hot water and heating - under the statute of section 11 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985. The landlord is expected to attend to the problem within a reasonable amount of time, once he is notified of the problem. In this case, it appears that the boiler cut out due to a drop in water pressure. The landlord should have attended to the problem by showing you how to bring the water pressure up to the required level, and then you would have then known how to rectify the problem in the future. If the boiler keeps cutting out, there may be a fault and that will require the landlord to repair the problem under section 11. If the landlord does not attend to the repair for which he is liable under section 11, then the tenant’s best option is to contact the local authority housing standards team or the environmental health team. They can inspect the property and contact the landlord about the repair. The landlord has now resolved this problem but you were without water and heating for five days. You could try and negotiate with the landlord about paying a lower rent for that period but I would not advise you to stop paying rent for that period as it would lead to rent arrears.

The agent with many years experience and knowledge of building a firm foundation to market the property continued to out perform the landlord and the year ended with a higher occupancy rate than the previous year.

If you are in a fixed term of the tenancy, and you leave early without the agreement of the landlord, you could be pursued, though court action, for any rent outstanding up until the end of the fixed term.

After 6 years, the landlord finally appreciated the amount of work involved with holiday lettings and got tired of dealing with all the enquiries, the difficult requests, the changes of cleaners, the maintenance required and preferred the agent to deal with this side of the operation. After all, they achieved higher rental levels than the

Ferndown has changed since 1951. Now it’s our turn.

I

n 1951, Ferndown - part of the parish of Hampreston until 1972 - was a small town of some 4,200 people. These days it has nearly 18,000 and much of the woodland and heath that surrounded the old town is now home to a popular, thriving residential community. At Wellstead & Wellstead, we’re proud of our contribution to the town’s development - helping families, people retiring or second-homers buy their perfect property. And just as Ferndown continues to flourish, so do we: as part of our merger with YOUhome, Bournemouth’s premier estate agent, we are now offering a residential lettings and property management service to Ferndown and the surrounding area.

DON’T LET RENTING CRAMP YOUR STYLE

124


INTERIORS More and more of us are living in rented homes - but can we ever make them feel like our own? Joanna Thornhill tells Gabrielle Fagan about her mission to help tenants create stylish nests. Our home should be a place where we can truly feel ourselves and show off our style and taste - but millions of us are living in someone else’s property, with all the limitations that imposes. Tenants have to cope with decor choices that aren’t theirs and landlords’ rules on what they can and cannot do to rooms. To add to the frustration - especially for decor divas current spiralling house prices mean it could be years before many can make the giant financial leap onto the property ladder. After living in 12 rented homes, Joanna Thornhill knows exactly what it’s like to “have a sinking heart as you look at wallpaper that doesn’t appeal and furniture that’s seen better days, and to be unable to make even basic cosmetic alterations”.

which bursts with inspiring ideas, practical advice, projects and tips to transform rooms without breaking the rules or busting the budget. It’s just as suitable for those who are nesting temporarily in their first-bought house or flat, before investing in their ‘forever’ home. “I’ve found through personal experience and through visiting a range of homes for the book, that rather than feeling burdened by the challenges of living in a place that cannot really be changed, it’s possible to be empowered by those circumstances. “Underwhelming or disheartening spaces can be transformed with a bit of creativity, imagination and a minimal outlay. Small changes, easy DIY projects and a little reorganisation can make a space you’ll truly love that you’ll be proud to call home.” Follow her suggestions for rescuing rented spaces, and you’ll find you don’t want your tenancy to end!

She has come to the rescue with her new book, Home For Now,

WALL WIZARDRY Boring walls - especially in an unappealing shade - can really impact on the atmosphere of a home. “Don’t be daunted, with a little thinking outside the box there’s no reason why patterned walls can’t be a part of any home, without breaking any of your tenancy rules,” says Thornhill. She suggests: Hide hideous walls by cladding a large freestanding board in wooden planks, or simply use a trompe l’oeil woodprint wallpaper. B&Q’s vinyl Wood Effect Wallpaper in Brown by Lutece, £14.98, looks like planks (www. diy.com).

If the walls are plain but boring and there’s a paper you love, try suspending one roll as a single drop by hanging it from a trouser or wire hanger secured with clothes pins or simply a couple of tacks at the top. Tactic tip: A tenancy agreement may stipulate that you cannot make changes to your home, but if there’s a specific task you feel needs doing you could approach the landlord to ask if you can do it yourself. For instance: one wall may be shabby or in a garish colour and you could paint it and then promise to return to the original colour when your tenancy ends, if they wish. 125

Pictures and photos instantly personalise a space but hanging these up can be a problem if the landlord will object to potential damage of walls from hooks and nails. “Removable wall stickers, and increasingly, removable murals and even wallpapers have risen in popularity in recent years,” says Thornhill. “They’re also perfect for commitmentphobes because they can simply be peeled off, leaving no trace when no longer required. Picture hanging strips, instead of nails, could mean less, or no, damage to walls.”

BUY NOW Home For Now by Joanna Thornhill is published by CICO, priced £16.99.

She suggests: Make the most of paint leftovers or tester pots and create your own inexpensive artwork with a cheap canvas. Dab on different colours to create an abstract pattern, or echo colours which are already featured in the room. Lean against a wall on a shelf or centre-stage on a mantel, or use to cover up an ugly fireplace. Small cardboard gift boxes glued together create a display space, and are the perfect spot to show off lightweight items. Line

each box with colourful paper offcuts and attach to a wall with removable picturehanging strips. Removable wall stickers and murals are available from companies such as Stickers Wall (www.stickerswall.com); Command’s range of adhesive picture hooks and hanging strips available from supermarkets and stores including Homebase (www.homebase.co.uk). NB: Always do a patch test before embarking on a project to ensure the surface is suitable. Tactic tip: If you plan on staying in the property for a while, use this as a bargaining tool. Tell the landlord how keen you are to make it feel like home as you are likely to stay longer if you can make minor alterations. No landlord wants a property lying empty or the constant expense and hassle of advertising for tenants and vetting them, and so may be willing to bend the rules to retain a long-term tenant.

Why not give your property a facelift? Absolute stone and brick use a DOFF steam cleaning system based cleaning system. It’s unlike any other steam system and can achieve temperatures 150°C. The DOFF system will remove dirt, paint, moss, algae, fungi, some graffiti, soot and smoke damage from almost any surface. The system uses steam so there is no need to use a chemical biocide during the removal process and the surfaces are dry within minutes. Unlike jet washing, DOFF uses steam rather than preasure to clean so it wont damage the surface being cleaned and also the steam kills any moss, fungi bio matter so the surface stays cleaner for much longer.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

DIY EXPERT Get those jobs done with a little help from ‘Big Al; our resident DIY expert.

Buying a home is expensive enough, so having it surveyed as well can seem like an extra expense you and your bank balance can’t quite manage. But not getting it done is a false economy. A surveyor can identify problems you haven’t noticed, and as a result, you may be able to negotiate a lower purchase price, or decide to withdraw from the purchase altogether. If you’re buying with the help of a mortgage, the lender will instruct a surveyor to value the property to ensure it’s worth what you’re paying. This valuation should identify any very obvious problems with the property, but that’s about it the lender is simply protecting its interests. While the valuation is sometimes free, you usually have to pay the lender for it. You can also often upgrade to a survey by paying more, the cost of which may be subsidised by the lender, or you can get a survey done independently of the lender’s valuation. If the valuation is less than the purchase

CHECK IT OUT price, the mortgage lender may not agree to give you the loan, or may reduce the size of it. It could also put a retention on some of the loan, which may only last until you fix a serious problem, such as damp, or get a specialist report on it. Apart from the lender’s valuation, there are two main kinds of survey for buyers: the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors ( RICS) HomeBuyer Report and the RICS Building Survey (or full structural survey) - see www.rics.org/uk.

such as a timber specialist to confirm if woodworm damage is active or historic, or an electrician to check the wiring. The HomeBuyer Report is designed to provide a snapshot of the overall condition of the property, rather than a detailed investigation. For this, you need the Building Survey.

al construction, in need of renovation, or have been altered substantially. The surveyor will check the property thoroughly, but, as with the HomeBuyer, they’ll only examine things that are visible or easily accessible, although they can adapt their inspection to suit your requirements.

The Building Survey is the most extensive - and expensive - type of survey. It’s particularly suited to properties that are large, listed, very old, of unusu-

Again, the surveyor may recommend getting in specialists to look at potential problems. The Building Survey should be very thorough and lengthy, of-

The HomeBuyer Report is usually quite long, but divided into sections to make it easy to digest. It uses an easy traffic-light system so you can clearly see what repairs (and maintenance) are required, and how urgent they are. A green/ number one rating means that repairs aren’t currently necessary, amber/number two means something needs to be repaired or replaced but isn’t serious or urgent, and red/ number three means it is. The surveyor will often recommend getting experts in to make further investigations,

ten containing a long list of defects - but remember all properties have defects, so don’t necessarily be alarmed. Many buyers trust the surveyor implicitly, but I know, as a seller, that surveyors can get things wrong. Reporting on one house I was selling, the surveyor said that a lock needed to be upgraded, but it was a five-lever British Standards lock; that the cold-water tank in the loft should be supported, covered and insulated, but it wasn’t connected or in use because the boiler was a combi; and that the (dated-looking) boiler was a new installation, which it wasn’t. The buyers’ solicitor therefore wanted the paperwork for the boiler and wouldn’t believe that we hadn’t fitted it - because the surveyor said it was new - until I produced a photo showing the boiler in-situ when we bought the house. So yes, surveyors are experts and most of us aren’t, but they’re not infallible, so get a survey done, but use common sense when evaluating it.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK POLYCELL 3IN1 MOULD KILLER Mould on walls and ceilings looks awful and isn’t good for our health. If your home has a mould problem, solving the cause of it should be a priority, whether it’s replacing the windows or opening them more. Even if there isn’t an easy solution, you need to keep on top of the mould. Normal cleaning sprays can struggle to remove mould, but Polycell 3in1 Mould Killer (£5.49, www.homebase.co.uk)) steams through it. It contains a powerful fungicide that kills mould and is designed to prevent it coming back. If you want to paint surfaces that are prone to mould, cleaning off the mould first is essential, and this spray is just the thing for the job. 144

HOW-TO TIP Bank holidays mean offers galore if you, like me, are doing up your home. Check store and company websites and adverts in the papers and on TV/radio in the run-up to national holidays to make sure you don’t miss out - B&Q, for example, often changes its offers on Fridays, so keep a check on its website, www.diy.com, if you have a DIYing weekend ahead of you


ASK THE EXPERT ASK THE EXPERT Robin Watson Laceys Solicitors The new flexible working rules: Are you ready? On 30 June 2014, the law concerning how an Employer deals with a request for flexible working changes. Currently, only certain Employees can apply: those who have children under the age of 17 (18 if a child is disabled) or who are carers. From 30 June, the right is extended to all Employees. However, an Employee must have been employed for at least 26 weeks and only one request can be made in any 12 months. From 30 June, the Employer must consider the request in a ‘reasonable manner’ and has 3 months in which to decide. This can be extended by agreement. ACAS has published a draft code that Employers should follow. The key points are: 1. Consider the request when you get it. Arrange to talk to the Employee as soon as possible. Tell the Employee that they can be accompanied by a work colleague at a meeting or appeal. Try and meet to discuss the request in private. 2. Inform the Employee of the decision in writing as soon as possible. 3. If the Employee’s request is granted, or with modifications, discuss with the Employee how and when the changes might best be implemented. 4. If the Employee’s request is rejected, ensure that the rejection is for one of the permitted business reasons and allow the Employee to appeal it. 5. Consider and decide on all requests, including any appeals, within a period of three months, unless an extension is agreed with the Employee. Practical Points: 1. Policy: Now may be an ideal time to review your existing policy on flexible working, or to introduce one. Laceys can provide a suitable policy. 2. Be prepared: Consider how you or your managers will deal with a flexible working request. Don’t wait until the changes happen to think about this. 3. Training: If you or any of your managers need an update or training on flexible working or any employment law issue, contact Laceys.

Laceys can advise on how to deal with a flexible working request and all aspects of employment law.

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

TOP TEN HATED ROAD HABITS Talking or texting whilst behind the wheel is not only illegal, it’s now the nation’s most despised road habit. New research from Kwik Fit reveals that using a mobile handset whilst driving is the nation’s number one bugbear on the road, as cited by 47% of UK motorists questioned. Tailgating, previously the number one most hated habit among motorists when Kwik Fit conducted the study in 2010, now takes second place, cited by 42% of drivers as their motoring pet hate. Failing to indicate (35%), dangerous over-taking (30%) and middle lane cruisers (26%) complete the top five. Drivers using their phone appears to be more of a nuisance to older motorists than younger ones, with 62% of over 65s citing this as their main motoring complaint, compared to just 38% of those aged 18-24. BRITAIN’S TOP TEN MOST HATED ROAD HABITS:

• • • • • • • • • •

Using a mobile handset to talk/text 47% Tailgating 42% Failing to indicate 35% Dangerous overtaking 30% Middle lane cruisers 26% Last minute braking 23% Undertaking 19% Hesitant driving 12% Being slow away from traffic lights 12% Jumping the lights 10%

Roger Griggs, director of communications at Kwik Fit, says: “These driving habits aren’t just annoying, they are dangerous and some of them against the law. You’re four times more likely to have an accident if you use a mobile while driving, in addition to the frustration it causes for fellow motorists.

FIAT PUNTO JET BLACK A new, limited-edition FIAT Punto Jet Black 2 has gone on sale in the UK featuring distinctive looks and a high level of standard specification. It costs £12,000.

control and cruise control, while standard safety features include rear parking sensors; adaptive cornering fog lights; five airbags and voice-controlled Bluetooth multimedia connectivity.

Powered by a 77hp 1.4-litre petrol engine fitted with Start&Stop as standard, the Punto Jet Black 2 combines, says Fiat, “ample performance with low running costs.”

Available as a three-door only, the Punto Jet Black 2 is finished in Crossover Black metallic paint and is equipped with dark tinted rear privacy glass and smoked, 12-spoke, 17-inch alloy wheels as standard. Body-coloured side skirts and a matching rear spoiler; sports suspension; front fog lights; special side stripes and a tailgate logo complete the bespoke look. The interior also benefits from additional features including a leather steering wheel and gear knob; automatic climate

ROAD TEST - RANGE ROVER VOGUE SE Luxury cars and sports utility vehicles are normally in separate sectors, as it is difficult to successfully achieve both functions in one car. But Range Rover is the notable exception, writes NICK FLETCHER. The company has no hesitation in describing its latest model as “the world’s finest luxury SUV” and I don’t think you can argue with that. The current model features a lightweight aluminium body saving 420kg and boosting fuel economy and reducing emissions. Prices start at £71, 320 and even the starter models are so well kitted, you could easily think there was no need for extra equipment. My recent test model was a midrange Vogue SE, priced at £84,720, laden with a novel-length list of extra kit, and just in case even that was not sufficient, the options fitted included an upgraded audio system (£4,000), a rear-seat touch-screen entertainment system (£1,900) and a sliding panoramic sunroof (£1,500). In all, £10,000 worth of extras were included, and even then that wasn’t the flagship version, which tops £105,000. The 10-model range allows much personalisation of equipment to get in effect a bespoke car, which is what customers want with the Range Rover. The interior is ultra-premium, beautifully styled with craftsman touch, and exudes an ambience that confers a rather royal glow around you. There is a sporty version with a supercharged V8 petrol engine, but

most buyers will opt for either the V6 or V8 diesels, both powerful, smooth and quiet. My test model had the V8, offering 339 hp. Top speed is 135 mph, the 0-60 mph time just 6.5 seconds impressive for a vehicle weighing two tonnes. Fuel consumption is 32.5 mpg combined.

Accommodation front and rear is spacious and comfortable, and the boot area enormous, though the drop-down tailgate means you need extended arms to reach some of the luggage, though the upper glass section does open separately.

On the road, the Range Rover drives and handles with precision and remarkable agility, partly due to its active lean control and continuously variable damping. Ride quality is also excellent, with a suppleness that is not only best in class but better than most luxury saloons.

So far, it has been all about luxury and on-road performance. But make no mistake, the Range Rover is not just a stunning example of motoring art, it is also a formidable off-roader. I have driven one in bonnet-deep snow in the Scottish mountains and it never faltered.

The cabin not only offers a great view but you can see all four corners of the car, a rarity these days. Dials and essential switchgear are well placed and most functions are controlled via a central touch screen, which is quite intuitive.

No doubt about it in my view - the Range Rover is in an exalted class of its own for all round capability and sheer elegant luxury. No rival is even close.

Eliminate processed carbohydrates from your diet. This, initially, will appear harder than you first think. Breakfast cereals, pasta, bread, white rice, cakes, are all processed carbs. If you took a more Palaeolithic approach, eating like our forefathers, your meals would consist of vegetables, fruit, meat, and dairy, and this approach would boost your immune system, reduce your inflammation and risk of inflammatory diseases, cut out your risk of getting type 2 diabetes and you would become much leaner. Use organic filtered coffee before exercise. Coffee has been shown to help you focus and concentrate, it also mobilises fat cells so reduces the use of carbohydrate (glycogen in the muscles) as full and increases the use of fat as fuel. After your exercise coffee should be avoided. The caffeine in coffee will maintain an elevated stress hormone environment in your body, this will hinder the repair process that the body should now be going through. Keep a diary. If you plan, you plan to improve. Therefore you should keep a log of your training and of your meals each day. This will help you stay focused on Y ONL your goals.

BURGER SHOP

Inspired by Southern America, Chicken Shack brings the best of the region to your dinner table at home with their all new delivery service! Available 6pm10pm every day! And from midday at the weekend.

For years pubs and bars alike have been serving the burger in many shapes and forms. Some go big, and some have taken to creating weird and wonderful toppings to disguise their meat. At Burger Shop they stand for one thing and one thing only: creating the perfect burger, using only the best that their handpicked farms have to offer! The concept was developed by a team of five very talented individuals, including Mark Redknapp, (son of football legend Harry). After countless market research in and around London and inspiration from American influences, Burger Shop was born. What we all really want to know is: how do you create the perfect burger?!

The answer is a combination of the following…let’s start with the patty: prime beef, sourced from a local butcher with specific restrictions that he may only supply them will meat from a select few farms across the country, (these guys know their meat). Now onto the science of it all: the meat is cooked at a precise 64 degrees, to create that juicy medium rare tenderness – to add a little perspective larger commercial fast food chains cook their patties at around the 84 degree mark, (think of all of that meaty juiciness we have been missing out on!). To top our perfect patty is the perfect bun; using only the finest brioche bun, (with added top secret glaze), adds a complimentary sweetness to the burger that you just cannot get with a seedy roll. After hearing so much about what goes into making this masterpiece, we just had to try one! And believe us when

we say: best burger in Bournemouth! The meat was unbelievably tender, the mushroom bacon topping was divine, and the perfectly melted cheese just brought it all to life. LUNCH TIME DEAL: House Burger or Veggie Burger or Salad Basket + House Side + Soft Drink ONLY £6.95!

The Italian hide out for business folk alike! We visited Alcatraz one lunchtime to enjoy their carefully selected lunch menu. The décor speaks of little Italy: little wooden tables, traditional liquors (lunchtime pick-me ups!), fresh oregano on the table, with a chic twist of modern design. Every dish we sampled was brought with a side order of friendly smile from our fantastic servers! To start: the smoked salmon! Fresh fish, used to encase a tangy, lemon infused sauce, on a bed of crisp, lightly dressed salad leaves: pure decadence, (and all before 2pm!). Next, the main: gnocchi, sealed with mozzarella in a creamy tomato sauce. An absolutely moreish dish, the rich flavours from the creamy tomato sauce, combined with the wonderful stringy consistency of the mozzarella was just too good to put our spoons down. Now for the finale, the

KOH NOI Lilliput

292 Sandbanks Road, Lilliput, Poole, BH14 8HX www.kohnoi.co.uk

The Koh family have been dazzling diners for over five years now, brining us authentic Thai cuisine in some of the grandest venues around the country. At Koh, tapas doesn’t just mean multiple sample sized dishes; it is about sharing an experience together. Every detail from the genuine Thai chefs, down to the cushions on your seats, have been carefully selected and brought together to create a complete dining experience. Koh Thai has been brining you delicious food and drinks in their restaurants for years, but now is the turn of the latest edition to the family: Koh Noi. The phrase “Koh Noi” means tiny island, and wow do great things come in small packages. Koh Noi is their first tapas bar, focussing on brining you a refined selection of tapas dishes, and their always-delightful drinks menu. No reservations are allowed here, the island consists of walk ins’ only, (a refreshing twist we think). We thought that we would leave it to the experts and let our wonderful server choose for us…moments later, (and I really do mean moments with their quick and attentive service); we were presented with a plethora of tantalising dishes. The 24-hour Ribs were melting in the mouth, gorgeously tender, and fell from the bone. Their Spicy Spring Roll was packed with hot Thai flavours; they say that chilli has a strange effect on people – though you might want to stop, its just too tasty, sort of a pain versus pleasure dilemma. Koh’s Own Chicken Satay left us wanting to know all of their secrets, and the Thai Sliced Crispy Beef had us succumbing to its moorishness. If the food wasn’t enough, next came the cocktails. A personal favourite of ours would be the Mai Thai: Fresh lime flavours, packed with punchy rum! But Koh, like everything they do, have taken it to the next level, with the addition of fresh chilli: all coming together to make a delicious concoction! The team have informed us that they are even available for takeaways! Collection only at the moment, but have no fear, they are doing everything they can to get those delivery wheels in motion. At Koh Noi, you aren’t just having a meal or a few drinks; it is a complete dining experience, that these dedicated Kohians can’t wait to share with you! 5 Stars Guys! Get the Mai Thai’s ready! ”If Like us you are spoilt for choice and just cant decide we would recommend the following, (Be sure to write this down, or ask for the HOUSE specials) 157
