MANAGING THE RISK With Insurers facing ever escalating claims costs and clients demanding minimal premiums it is inevitable that those firms who are able to demonstrate superior claims experience and high quality risk management procedures, are those who will be most sought after by insurers. Due to the limited number of rated providers and the quality of data retained by insurers, it is highly likely that many underwriters will have received risk presentations from the same clients or prospective clients year after year. In some cases this can be through a variety of brokers which enables them to build a historic risk profile. With this in mind it is more important to demonstrate to insurers that firms have robust procedures in place which will prevent claims from happening, rather than insurers assuming that a firm simply may have been fortuitous in avoiding claims to date. Claims are seen from a variety of areas such as administrative errors, routine clerical mistakes, pressures of work volume, poor recording of client instructions, client selection, giving advice in areas without sufficient expertise, and training. Insurers should be advised that not only

have these risks been identified by firms, but that there is a culture of embedded risk awareness throughout the firm, rather than as an after-thought. Partners should be aware of their responsibilities, that there are procedures of risk management in place, and these are reviewed to ensure they are effective with a clear chain of responsibility with named individuals to ensure prevention, or early recognition of instance which may give rise to a claim. A good quality insurance broker will not simply gather information to complete the proposal form. They will take the time to discuss and understand their clients and potential clients’ business, and pass these positive features on to the insurers. There is of course a Commercial consideration for doing this, because they are looking to present clients in the best possible light and differentiate themselves, not just from competing brokers but also from any previous information an insurer may hold for a firm. For further information on any of the above content above please contact:Tristan Webb, Managing Director, Aspire Insurance Services Limited, 0845 270 6720

OPEN HOUSES A BIG HIT WITH BUYERS AND SELLERS Open house events are a highly effective way of selling your home and getting the best price in the current housing market, according to estate agency Fox & Sons based on Wimborne Road in Winton. The local team has seen an influx of buyers registering their interest in purchasing a home since the start of the year. Open houses offer a fantastic environment in which to showcase properties to their full potential and to as many buyers as possible; as well as getting the best price as buyers look to out-bid the competition. Indeed, Fox & Sons recently secured a sale for a property on Poole Lane in Bournemouth by holding an open day on Saturday 22 February which attracted a lot of interest from would-be buyers. “The housing market has changed so much over the last year, in fact it is almost unrecognisable when you consider there are now more, higher loan-to-value mortgages available and schemes like Help to Buy, both of which have culminated in many more buyers looking to purchase a home,” says Michael Stillman, Senior Negotiator for Fox & Sons. “A

different market requires a different approach to selling and open houses are a fantastic way for us to get the best sale for our vendors.” Fox & Sons’ open house in February enabled interested buyers to attend and have a good look round the fantastic property on offer. The team were available to answer questions and offer advice so potential buyers can take their time and look at everything the home has to offer. On the back of its success in selling the property on Poole Lane, Fox & Sons was instructed to sell the property next door. “I hope to help lots of sellers get the best possible sale of their property through one of our open house events,” Michael continues. “If you have a property to sell and would like to discuss holding an open house like the successful event we held on Poole Lane, please call the Fox and Sons office for a chat.” If you have a property to sell and would like to arrange a free market appraisal of your home, please contact the team on 01202 512606 or email: winton@sequencehome.co.uk

RENTAL DEMAND HIGHER THAN EVER After a very strong start to the year, Goadsby are in need of more rental properties in the local area. Jessica Morley is our Lettings Manager for Wimborne and Blandford and shares from an article she read on propertywire.com “New tenancies across the UK increased by 15% in the last 12 months. Buy to let mortgage applications increased by 17% annually as the appetite for property investment remains strong.” She adds “Anyone who hasn’t had dealings with the

rental sector would be forgiven for thinking it’s a slow market. This truly isn’t the case. We frequently find ourselves running very low on properties to offer good quality tenants. Generally speaking there is often more than one person wanting to apply for the same property, meaning many lose out and remain keen to find an alternate. We’ve also found that now the sales market is starting to improve, a number of ‘accidental’ landlords are selling their properties

after being forced to rent them at short notice - meaning there are more and more applicants fighting for the same properties as they become available. As an agent it is our job to ensure we obtain the right tenant for your property and is something we take very seriously.” If you are thinking of investing in the area or have a property that you are considering letting, please contact Jessica Morley in our Wimborne office on 01202 848984 or Jessica.morley@goadsby.com

SOMERS HOUSE DESIGNS SPRING HAS SPRUNG 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. Collect decorative items in one place, deciding which work well together, and then redistribute them in different arrangements throughout the house. Mix-match heights, sizes, textures and colours to make them visually appealing and they’ll look new and different. Finally, plump up sofa cushions, fling windows wide open for at least 30 minutes a day, and drape a colourful cloth over a table and make fruit or floral arrangements a centrepiece.

NAVY AND WHITE Beach, Nautical, Nantucket and French Riviera styles are everywhere right now. Mixtures of wood, shells, blue and white cushions and lanterns will bring the sunshine from outside into your home. Driftwood lamps are in high demand at the moment. Use nautical trimmings for cushions, leading edges and lampshades. There are vast ranges available to day and Samuels and Sons hit the spot for these styles. “A glass vase filled with zesty, colourful lemons and limes whose aroma will scent the room is a stylist’s favourite trick,” Another idea is to fill with a Riviera Maison hurricane lamp for an effective display. “Sheer curtains allow sunlight to filter evenly through a room, and if you add layers of textiles in different patterns and materials you can give your space a textured, layered look” Like jewellery, curtain finials complete your window dressing and make it even more elegant, playful and personal. The best part is that you can easily change them whenever you feel you want some variation. Add some beautiful tiebacks and the look will be complete. Springtime is all about giving interiors an uplift. Breathe new life into a jaded dining and living areas by introducing a few key accessories in bold, zesty colours. Update your look with brightly upholstered chairs or new chair cushions, and a statement rug to zone the area.

OUTDOOR LIVING

TOP 5 TIPS

FROM TODD DOORS

1

A new front door creates a striking first impression

Choose an eye-catching new entrance door to match the style and period of your house. Whether your house needs a period reproduction or a more contemporary style, a new timber door will be built to last. All timber doors can be painted or stained in the colour of your choice.

2

Replace your old door handles

Accentuate your interior doors with Todd Doors’ new range of Groël door handles. Beautifully tactile, weighty yet sleek, they come in a number of finishes to complement your door. This attention to detail is a great finishing touch!

3

Choose glazed doors if you have a dark entrance hallway

Most internal and external doors can be ordered with glazed panels which can greatly help to brighten a room. Ask for acid-etched glass if you are concerned about privacy, but still want to let the light in.

4

For something different, choose white, or black doors

If you want to keep your design simple, yet stylish, white or black doors are very effective and right on trend. Many white doors come pre-finished, or you can even order an oak door which has been deep smoked for a stunning, modern look

5

Sliding doors are great when you’re in a tight spot

If you want to partition a room, or close the door on a wc, utility or cloakroom, a pocket door system looks sleek, and ensures you can make the most of your available space.

How does it work – and what are the limits? Property owners can borrow up to 20pc of their property’s value over a period of up to ten years. The loan is secured against the property as a “second charge” – where it sits alongside the primary, “first charge” traditional mortgage. No interest is payable. At the end of the term, a portion of the property’s increase in value is paid. The maximum proportion of the property’s value that can be borrowed – as a combination of both the loan and the regular mortgage – is 85pc. The loan must be a minimum of £10,000 and a maximum of £400,000. Other fees in the form of set-up charges also apply, which work out at

Instead of charging monthly interest when the equity loan is redeemed borrowers have to pay a share in any upside in the value of their property, along with the initial loan. The proportion of the increase in value which is paid back at the end of term will be twice the proportion borrowed. Say a borrower with a property worth £200,000 took out an equity loan worth 10pc. Over the period of the loan, in this case ten years, the value of the property has increased by £50,000. So the borrower repays 20pc of the gain – £10,000 – plus the original £20,000, totalling

Landlord lenders apply several limits to the amounts they will lend. They restrict the proportion of the loan against the value of the property – typically to a maximum of 85pc. But they also apply a “stress test” which measures the monthly mortgage interest costs against the likely rent the property will generate. In most cases the rent is required to be 125pc of the monthly interest cost, or more. This means many low-yielding properties, such as those in expensive areas like London or other urban centres can be bought by investors who otherwise would have

to raise bigger deposits.

What are the risks? As with all secured loans, the property is at risk if the borrower does not repay according to the terms of the contract. There is also the risk that the primary lender will not agree to the addition of the loan. Currently, Britain’s biggest lender, Lloyds Banking Group, will accept the parallel top-up mortgage, as will others – but others have yet to agree. Call to find out if your lender will accept the top up.

ASK THE EXPERT Steve Isaacs, Director Baileys Estate Agents What should I do to prepare my home for sale? We are often asked this question by prospective vendors. In truth it is quite simple, you need to take positive steps in your home. Your agent should ensure that all of the photographs are a positive reflection of your home. With the use of the internet being so prominent, the photographs are often the main reason why a person will or will not view your home. You should not feel rushed to have your property on the internet. Taking an extra day or two in order to ensure the presentation is as good as it can be to make a good first impression is essential.

Tips for making a good first impression Many people will still drive past a property before wanting to view it. Therefore, keeping a tidy front garden is recommended. Simple things such as making your house name or number clearly visible, together with a well presented front door can give a great first impression to your property. Try brightening up the front of the property with some flowers or hanging baskets. If a purchaser sees a well cared for home when driving past, they are much more likely to view! Inside the home, remember you are trying to demonstrate to viewers that they could make it a home. Therefore presenting a cared for home on the inside is also important. Replace any spent light bulbs, clear the cobwebs, keep bins emptied and laundry in baskets. Remember you are presenting the viewers with their new home, so selling a lifestyle is important. The age old tips for a pot of coffee and bread in the oven do make a difference and provide inviting and comforting aroma’s which help people relax and feel at home.

REMEMBER TO BE POSITIVE WITH EVERYTHING YOU DO WHEN PREPARING FOR SALE.

Baileys Estate Agents takes positive steps in selling your home by providing top quality photography, professionally drawn floor plans and glossy brochures to retain the positive first impressions you have prepared. The Baileys team  are trained to promote all the best features of your home and provide a professional service throughout the home selling process.

ASK THE LETTING EXPERT

Jeremy Clarke Belvoir Lettings

Margaret Annable Paul Watts Estate Agent

The Somerford Estate housing market outperforms Friars Cliff by 82%! We all know Friars Cliff as one of the most sought after places to live in Christchurch, with its beautiful tree lined avenues and its early 20th Century Arts and Crafts designed detached houses, along with some very pleasant modern bungalows. Christchurch Estate Agents tell me that buyers are not only coming from London and the Home counties, but also from some exotic locations around the globe to snap them up. The larger detached houses sell for upwards of £700,000 and the most ordinary 2 bed apartments will sell at up to £200,000. So, it was with some surprise, when after reading last month’s ‘Christchurch Property News’, a landlord who I had never had the pleasure of meeting before, took me up on my offer of popping his head round our door on Fountain Way (near Waitrose) for a chat about the local property market. He lived in the Friar’s Cliff area and wanted to know my thoughts on what to buy in the coming 12 months for a possible rental investment. Buying property to let is about the balance of the annual yield or return from the property verses the potential of its growth in value. In the Friar’s Cliff area, those larger houses let out for between £1,800 and £2,500 per month, giving an annual yield of around 3%. However, yields are over 80% more on the Somerford Housing estate, where the annual yields currently being achieved would be around 5.8% per year (as they can bought for under £200,000 and rent day in day out at around £850 per month. So surely the Somerfield Housing estate is the place to buy, as it has much higher yields? However, we must remember that yield is not the sole consideration when investing in buy to let. The value of the larger properties in Friars Cliff, over the last 10 or 11 years, has risen on average by 73%, whilst property on The Somerford Estate has, in the same time period, only risen by an average of 19%. So you either buy for yield or you buy for capital growth! Ultimately, we found there’s a general rule that the better the area you buy in, the lower the return you’ll get. This is because you’ll have to pay more to buy property in a nice area, and the amount of rent you’ll get doesn’t rise at the same level, but properties tend to go up in value better, over the long term. However, it is easier to judge yields today than deciding what will go up in value in the future. Buying in a less plush area, such as The Somerford Estate doesn’t mean a property won’t rent, but it does have a bearing on the type of tenant you are likely to attract. Again, every property and every landlord is different So, feel free to pop into our offices near Waitrose for a chat about the property market in Christchurch.

Buying a New Home Buying a new home is not an everyday occurrence, and so I thought some advice to assist in perhaps saving time and effort might be of use. This is perhaps even more relevant when the market is as lively as it is now, with demand outstripping supply for some types of property. Its best to have a firm idea of what your priorities are, where you want to be and also the all-important budget. If you need mortgage finance, find out how much you can borrow, and obtain written confirmation of your offer in principle. Its possible to do a lot of homework on the internet, checking out which properties might fit the bill, and you can register with the various portals such as RightMove and Zoopla to be notified when new properties in your budget and area become available. Most estate agents will have a floorplan of their properties online, as we do, and that can save a lot of time in deciding whether the layout of any particular property works for you, or could perhaps be adapted to suit your requirements. Our floorplans show a compass point, so you can check which way the garden faces. If the accommodation offered is generally OK, and you like the look of it from the photos, wherever possible its best to take a look at the outside before arranging a viewing. You can then check out the general area, and make sure there is nothing you don’t like the look of in the immediate neighbourhood, or if you don’t live locally, Streetview is very useful. Sometimes we find that buyers arrange an appointment to view, and then cancel it because they have driven by and decided the location is not right for them – time-wasting for everyone and also disappointing for the sellers. If all looks OK, then phone the agent to arrange a viewing. If you can give at least a day’s notice and perhaps a range of times available, it will be easier to arrange. We accompany all our viewings as part of our service, and find that whilst we may have a general idea of what someone is looking for, we have a much better idea after a viewing. If the property chosen to view is not right, we can hopefully suggest another property that will fit the bill – and bear in mind that not all properties are offered on the open market, but we offer some on a low profile basis, so its best to register to make sure you are in the know. A bit of forethought and preparation can really pay dividends when househunting.

ASK THE EXPERT Evelyn Runde Director HD Inventories

Veronica Strongman (Sales & Lettings Director), Des Simmons (Managing Director), Anita Smith (Holiday Lettings Director)

Are landlords losing money through deposit disputes? Landlords in the UK are losing a staggering amount of money through deposit disputes because of inadequate property inventories. According to the figures published by mydeposits.co.uk only 8% of disputes get awarded in full to the landlord.

ASK THE EXPERTS Bournecoast Property Agents Is there any money to be made from Buy-to-Let? If you are considering buy to let as a serious investment, then you’ll probably want to know one thing: is there real money to be made? Well, the simple answer is yes there is. It’s just you have to put in time

It is easy to understand why. As mydeposits.co.uk points out: “The law starts with the principle that the money is the tenant’s. It’s up to the landlord to justify withholding all or part of a deposit.”

and effort - and hone your research skills. Some people dip their toe

Should a dispute between landlord and tenant arise at the end of the tenancy, this will have to be evaluated by one of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services from one of the authorised Deposit Protection Services.

private landlords who own hundreds of properties, who make money

At that point landlords realise, to their surprise, that the level of evidence required by the adjudicator far exceeds the evidence provided by an old-fashioned inventory. Even when pictures are provided, the chances of covering every single area of a property with photographs are very low. In the past landlords and letting agents could rely on basic property inventories as the tenant was always in a weaker position. Nowadays the tenancy deposit rules have completely changed the playing field. Increasingly, landlords and letting agents are turning to professionally produced property video inventories. To be effective video inventories need to be filmed professionally, ensuring that all areas are covered in a systematic manner by a properly trained and qualified independent video inventory clerk. A good video inventory will be as far from a home video as one can imagine. Video inventories can also prevent issues arising in the first place and should these occur, it will provide the strong evidence required to prove the landlord’s case and to ensure that the property is returned in a condition which is consistent with its state at the beginning of the tenancy. To learn more about how video inventories can help you protect your property contact Evelyn Runde at: evelyn.r@hd-inventories.co.uk or visit www.hd-inventories.co.uk

in the water by buying one investment property and try to manage it while holding down a demanding day job and soon realise that in spite of a strong market for rentals that it’s too much hassle to do without professional help. But, on the other hand, there are plenty of and have no intention of selling. Landlords will often use the services of a Letting Agent to ensure the hassle is taken away from them on a day-to-day basis. Timing is crucial, the success of your investment will depend as much - more, arguably - on when you buy as when you sell. Is the market at its peak or heading towards one, falling or stable? The trick to buy-to-let success is to choose your timing, area, property type and style of letting carefully. How do you do that? First, seek advice from agents who specialise in buy-to-lets. They can advise on what type of properties rent well locally, which type of renting will be most successful (ranging from weekly holiday letting to corporate lets), what rental yield you can expect - and the better their advice, the more business they’ll get from you. Trying to make money from capital growth and rental yield has typically been difficult since the credit crunch - so you also need to work out which you want. ”Most buy-tolet investors will start close to home, buying either in their home town or another location they know well, such as the place in which they went to university,” says Phil Spencer, the TV property expert and buyto-let investor. “It’s a sales and rental market you understand, you’ll probably know the nuances between one street and the next and plans for upgrades in transport and infrastructure - and being within a 30- to 60-minute drive of your property is preferable in case of emergencies.” Still, you will be left with a wide choice of what to buy: resale versus new-build, one-bed or two, modernised or in need of an uplift. The only way you can decide is to compare several properties on price, rents and potential maintenance costs and financial returns. Tempting as it is to cut costs by managing the property yourself, there is much you need to know as a landlord. “There are more than 100 pieces of legislation which are ever-changing and landlords can be prosecuted for all manner of things, even for something like damp,” says Veronica Strongman (Sales & Lettings Director, Bournecoast Ltd).

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

RENTING A ROOM am presently looking to rent out a spare room in my Q Ihouse. Are there any special requirements that I need to do or be aware of and any other advice can you give me?

A

Renting out a spare room is a great way of bringing in some extra revenue. As you will be living in the property the normal Assured Shorthold Tenancy does not apply and I would advise you to use a ‘House and Flat Share’ Agreement, this will include how the rent is to be paid and how often, how much notice either party must give, if meals or any other services are included in the rent and if any bills are applicable. I would also advise you to write out an Inventory on the room furnishings and take dated photos. There are various portal sites that are dedicated to house shares and a select few of Letting Agents to help you find a suitable lodger (Move On Rentals does specialise in renting rooms to the professional market). The positives of going with an Agent will mean you are able to carry out a credit check and background check on them. You must remember that you are taking in a complete stranger into your home with your family’s safety, welfare, possessions and identities at stake. You may possibly need planning permission because you could create a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO), you will need to contact your local council planning department. If you have gas supplied to the property then you will need a ‘Landlords Gas Safety Certificate’. If you would like us to send you a leaflet on ‘Rent a Room Scheme’, which applies to letting out a room in your home and how you may qualify for a tax free income of up to £4250 per annum. Then please email sharon@ moveonrentals.com and we will happily forward you a leaflet which includes other tax advantages.

You can now tune into Hopefm.com every Wednesday and listen to Sharon live on ‘The Property Show’, which Sharon produces and presents and deals with all aspects of the property industry.

ASK THE EXPERTS Aspray Estate Agents in Ashley Cross

Spring into action with Aspray! As the weather gets warmer and springtime is upon us, Aspray are receiving more and more enquiries from the potential sellers and landlords getting ready to put their properties on the market. Not only are they asking us how much we believe the property will achieve in the current market conditions, but also what they can do to make their property desirable for buyers and potential tenants alike. Well, of course picking up the phone to call Aspray is a step in the right direction! But we do have some top tips for making your property have great appeal! Making the property clean and tidy seems an obvious one and it’s open to each individual’s interpretation. But the importance of showing your property free of washing hanging off the radiators and toilet seats down is imperative. Look at your property as though you were the potential buyer/tenant - Put a battery in that bell, screw the loo roll holder back on the wall, take that bin out and wipe the mildew off those windows! The bottom line to presenting your property is to show off its features in the best light possible. One last note is energy efficiency. This is becoming more and more important especially in the lettings market as potential tenants want to calculate their monthly outgoings prior to taking on a property. Once again small alterations can make a big difference here, and if it can help sell or let your property then you’re on to a winner.

• When you sell your property you will answer a form called the Property Information Form. If you fill those in incorrectly or give a misleading answer the buyer may make a claim for compensation. • Boundaries as shown on the Land Registry are general boundaries only. They are not necessarily definitive. If a query or potential dispute arises, you should immediately offer to share the costs of appointing a joint boundary expert to determine the boundaries. You should also offer mediation. A court process remains available in the last resort but can be hugely expensive. • If you do any underground work within 6 metres of the neighbouring building, you may have to serve a notice on your neighbour giving them warning of what you are intending to do. This is called a Party Wall Act notice. You will need the assistance of a Chartered Surveyor. • If someone appears to be occupying land belonging to you, you should take it up immediately with them. You may have to take action to remove them. If those people remain on the land long enough and comply with various requirements, they can acquire title to the land. • If anyone goes across your land for any purpose, you need to prevent a right of way arising. You should immediately post notices saying that this is a permissive right to enable you to block it up whenever you like, or you should block it up straight away anyway to prevent people using it.

• Branches overhanging a boundary can be lopped off so far as they over overhang and the branches given back to the neighbour, but you should discuss it with them first. • You should have trees on your land inspected annually by a tree expert to remove dangerous branches and advise whether tree roots might be penetrating the neighbour’s drains. That will prevent actions for compensation for damage done. • Always check whether or not a tree is subject to a tree preservation order before doing any work to it. You should always discuss these problems with your neighbour first before starting any precipitate action. It is always best to take expert and legal advice.

HOPPEN’S TIPS ON CREATING A DREAM HOME: Good planning is essential, she says. “Write a wish list for your home. Don’t worry about colour palettes, fabric choices or furniture at this stage - rather describe the atmosphere, the style of decoration you like, the things that will make you most happy, and how you want others to feel when they walk through the door.”

HOPPEN’S 2014 TREND TIPS:

128

“This year there will be a bigger emphasis on modular and structured designs,” she predicts. “Lighting will play an ever increasing role as its power is understood more. Good lighting is like a

layer of magic dust sprinkled over everything - it affects mood more than any other factor and is not a design ingredient you should ever skimp on.” “This is my way of holding someone’s hand through the journey of designing a home,” she says. “That starts from analysing the space they have and determining how best to use it, to resolving choices of flooring, fabrics, furniture and lighting. “I show people beautiful homes throughout the world whose interiors I have designed. But most importantly, the book provides the tools and insight for people to achieve their own version of a Kelly Hoppen interior, if they desire, but more than that, I hope they can design a home that is all about them.”


Hoppen uses symmetry, such as a pair of low coffee tables or a pair of lamps to help bring a serene feeling of order.

ASK THE EXPERT Dan Wilden Director Pure Town Planning What, more new permitted development rights?

Visit the new Karndean Designflooring showroom today, now open at Carpet Barn

Well it must be that time of year again! The Government have just published a new amendment to the General Permitted Development Order introducing a number of new permitted development rights for change of use which come into effect on 06 April 2014. These include: 1) Use Class A1 (shops) and A2 (banks, estate agents etc.) to residential use, 2) Use Class A1 (shop) to a bank or building society, 3) Various different uses to a nursery school, 4) Agricultural buildings to schools or nurseries, 5) Agricultural buildings to residential. I would imagine the first and last on this list would be of most widespread interest. Both these changes include a requirement for a new prior notification procedure. This means that before going ahead with the development you must first notify the Council who will decide if approval is required in relation to various specific matters listed in the legislation. In the case of the first in the above list, change of use from A1 (shop) or A2 (banks, estate agents etc.) to residential, Councils must make an assessment of the impact of the loss and the realistic prospects of future occupation by another A1 or A2 user. They must also consider issues of flood risk, contamination and transport.

Classic Limed Oak KP97, Knight Tile. 12 year guarantee.

In the case of agricultural conversions there is the ability for the Council to decide “whether the location or siting of the building makes it otherwise impractical or undesirable for the building to change”. This is clearly very ambiguous so we will have to see how Councils (and Planning Inspectors) interpret this one. Again they must also consider issues of flood risk, contamination and transport. The agricultural to residential change also includes some limited rights to undertake necessary building works to facilitate the change of use – i.e. rebuilding a wall or the roof, inserting windows or doors for example. Numerous conditions apply to all these changes so it is definitely worth seeking early advice if you are thinking of taking advantage of the new rights. Interestingly these new rights do not have a time limit as some of the changes made last year did – for example the potential for much larger domestic rear extensions and the change of use from B1(a) office to residential. You need to bear in mind that those still run out at the end of May 2016. So get cracking! LATE UPDATE: In the Budget last week the Chancellor announced consultation on yet more permitted development changes including even more non-residential use to residential use changes. Warehouses and light industrial buildings are the next potential target…

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

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

THIS WEEK: HOW TO CHOOSE A DESIGN FOR A GOOD FIREPLACE TO MATCH THE FEEL OF YOUR HOME. The days may be getting a bit warmer, and the spring flowers may be daring to rear their heads; but generally speaking, we are still in winter, and winter means one very welcome addition to any home - a fireplace.

if you’re lucky, you can find them in skips and give-away websites such as Freecycle.

A good fireplace doesn’t only give warmth though. A wellchosen design to match the feel and period of your home can create a strong and attractive focal point of your room, whatever the weather outside.

That said, while it is more environmentally friendly and often cheaper to buy a reclaimed period fireplace than a new reproduction one, if you want your fireplace for actual use not just decoration, reproduction ones are often better suited. Many original fireplaces are missing some parts and fittings needed for a real fire, some of which are hard to replace.

If you have a period home but no original fireplaces (or you want contemporary fireplaces for a modern home), eBay is a great place to look for bargains. It’s a good idea to watch some auctions first to see what fireplaces like those you want are going for, and remember to factor in the cost of petrol, as most fireplaces are collection only. You can also buy fireplaces from other websites, high-street shops, DIY stores and architectural salvage yards, or sometimes,

If the fireplace you want to restore seems to be complete though, wooden and metal ones are generally straightforward for DIYers to repair and renovate (stone are best left to the experts). If the fireplace is painted and the paint is in poor condition, you may need to strip it off and start again. However, this is a big job, and you can often get away with filling, sanding and repainting instead (depending on the state of it and assuming you’d like a painted finish).

Use a heatproof paint if you intend to have a real fire, at least for the bits closest to the fire. Metal period fireplaces often have rust on them, but don’t be put off. The quickest and easiest solution is to use a paint that can be applied straight to rust, such as Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint (from £7.98 for 250ml, B&Q), where you don’t need to use a primer or undercoat. Hammerite Direct to Rust now comes in lots of colours (both off-theshelf and mixed in store), but if you’d prefer another colour as a topcoat, try Hammerite Kurust (£8.49 for 250ml, www.tooled-up.com) or Hammerite No 1 Rust Beater (£4.36 for 250ml, www. powertoolsdirect.com) to treat the rust first, depending on the extent of it. As with any DIY project though, sometimes you need a bit of trial and error, but you will get there in the end.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK PURE WOOL CARPET For a luxurious feel underfoot, you can’t beat a pure wool carpet, and the Linear range (£31.49 per sq m) from Carpetright is a great choice because it looks more expensive than it is. Made in the UK of 100% wool, it has a lovely loop pile and is naturally durable, insulating and resistant to soiling - practical as well as pretty. Striped stair carpets look fantastic too, whatever style of home you have, and there are lots of smart striped designs in the Linear range 140

HOW-TO TIP UNSIGHTLY RADIATOR-PIPE HOLES This is a common problem if the radiators have been moved, leaving the old holes behind, but lifting the boards and fixing a piece of wood underneath will easily enable you to fill the holes. If you can’t get the boards up and there’s nothing to fill onto, gradually build up wood filler around the edge of each hole and when that’s set hard, fill the middle of the hole. Use a flexible wood filler that’s the same or a similar colour to the floorboards, or stain the filler the same colour for a seamless finish.

ASK THE FUNDING EXPERT

Q A

What should I be considering when looking at the potential of a property development?

In our opinion, there are a number of key things to consider: •

Firstly, ensure that you have the correct GDV (gross development value), not just the most optimistic.

Always consider your target market – what do they want, need or can afford, speak to local agents and show them the plans for your design.

Consider your location – what are the ceiling prices for your area? Have you considered local facilities, bus routes and school catchment areas which may affect the market you’re appealing to?

It is important to look at the layout of your design – what is your purchaser looking for? Should the property have open plan living or a separate kitchen and dining room? Does a second en-suite mean that the third bedroom needs to be a single instead of a double and how will this affect the target market?

Importantly, have you factored in all of the costs? Have you considered selling agents fees, solicitors, finance costs, stamp duty and any local authority contributions? Have you got a contingency in your budget for unforeseen circumstances that may occur during your build stage?

And finally, the golden rule – ensure that your finance is in place prior to exchanging on any potential development site. Traditional banks promise to deliver, but on many occasions customers are let down following months of protracted negotiations. Give MSP Capital call, we can offer you a flexible, funding solution with direct access to the key decision makers. This enables us to give you a fast decision to maximise the value of your development and capitalise on this growth market.

Adam Tovey, MSP Capital

Based in Ashley Cross, MSP Capital is the South’s leading privately owned commercial finance provider.

FRIENDLY FINANCE

MSP Capital was approached by our borrower to fund an ‘eco-friendly’ 5,000 sq ft house outside Winchester. The property is situated in a desirable village and includes a number of low carbon features which will mean running costs upon completion will be kept to a minimum. The property has been architecturally designed to provide generous accommodation comprising six bedrooms with three en-suites and is set within two acres of land. Our borrower did his homework and thoroughly researched the area prior to purchasing the plot. He amended the design of the house to incorporate a number of eco-friendly features and spoke to numerous agents to ensure that he had an accurate estimation of the GDV (gross development value). MSP Capital provided a loan against the purchase of the site and 100% of the build costs and fees and is delighted to report that the development is progressing at an excellent rate with several sales enquiries off plan. To find out how we can help fund your development, contact MSP Capital on 01202 743400.

How is Hyperhidrosis treated? Botulinum toxin type A (Botox®) is approved for treating excessive sweating of underarms. By injecting Botox® into the affected underarm areas the messages sent to the glands are blocked by a chemical that prevents the glands activating. The glands then don’t produce sweat!

Will it hurt? When the Botox® is injected a very small needle is used so any discomfort is minimal. The treatment will take approx 10-15 minutes.

Are there any risks? There are no severe risks to treating hyperhidrosis – Botox® is perfectly safe if applied by a professional such as Austin Brewer. However, there is the potential for small side effects including small reactions to the injections, which may result in redness, a little bruising or irritation.

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL & NURSERY A MIRACLE YEAR AT BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY “March 2014 marks the first anniversary of the fire which devastated the Buckholme Towers School building. One year on, the school is in better shape than ever with record admissions and outstanding exam results. Headmaster Iain Robertson reflects on the successes of the last year and looks forward to a prosperous future. “It’s hard to believe that it has been a whole year since the fire. On Tuesday 12th March 2013 at 2.20am the fire broke out and it completely rocked the staff, pupils and residents of Ashley Cross. Miraculously, with the help of the local community and businesses, temporary classrooms were up and running within 48 hours at the neighbouring Parkstone United Reformed Church. A six month refurbishment project quickly followed and the new school building was open to pupils on the first day of term in September.

delight to see the children’s reactions to them and excitement quickly spread around the school. “We recently celebrated record admissions by welcoming many new students and we have waiting lists for a number of year groups. We continue to make our greatest investment in our most important resource, the staff. All teachers and teaching assistants are fully qualified and ratios are second to none, with around 1 adult to every 7 pupils. This ensures that every pupil receives the attention they need to succeed.

NEW BEGINNINGS “Poignantly, the anniversary coincided with some wonderful news when we found that the school’s chicken eggs had hatched and we welcomed 10 new friends – Frank, Rufus, Betsy, Maria, Rupert, Albert, Sydney, Elsie, Dorothy and Fi-Fi. It was a

AN EXCITING FUTURE “This last year has been a testing time for everyone involved, but it has also reminded us of the importance of community spirit and old friends, with many of the Buckholme alumni returning to see the new school. We are keen to focus on the future though and the coming terms bring a wealth of opportunities for the pupils, with such events as the annual ski trip to Italy and the new sailing academy season.” *There are limited places remaining in the reception class for admission in September 2014.

We have achieved outstanding results for 11 plus entry to grammar schools, as well as scholarship entry to top independent senior schools.

MOTORING

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

DON’T EAT AND DRIVE!

HONDA CR-V SPECIAL EDITION Honda has unveiled two eye-catching Special Edition variants of the CR-V, the Black Edition and White Edition. Both share a range of exterior enhancements that give the car greater road presence. These features include bold 19-inch Orion alloy wheels, exhaust finisher and privacy glass. A new patterned front grille gives a more powerful expression of performance, while a tailgate spoiler

extends the flowing lines of the roof over the rear window to give a sleek, dynamic look. Smoothly integrated running boards add practicality and visual impact, while front and rear skid plates top the styling upgrades while protecting the underside of the car. The Special Editions also benefit from

the specification offered with the CR-V SE-T, which features dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth HFT, front and rear parking sensors and power-folding door mirrors, plus metallic paint and satellite navigation as standard. The new models are available now in manual or automatic form, with either the 2.0 i-VTEC petrol or 2.2 i-DTEC diesel engine. Prices start at £28,400.

Drivers are being urged to take a break and enjoy their food away from their vehicles, as road safety charity Brake and Direct Line reveal more than six in ten have eaten at the wheel in the past year - risking a crash. Three in ten (29%) unwrapped food themselves at the wheel a telling symptom of busy lifestyles putting lives at risk. Studies have suggested eating a meal at the wheel increases risk of a devastating crash as much as talking on a phone. Brake and Direct Line’s survey of 1,000 drivers reveals that in the past year: • Three in ten (29%) have opened and eaten food at the wheel. • A third (33%) have eaten food that was unwrapped and passed to them by a passenger. • One in 50 (2%) has narrowly avoided a crash in the past year, having had to brake or swerve to avoid a hazard because they were distracted by food or drink. The numbers of UK drivers eating at the wheel reflects a wider trend towards eating on the move, as lifestyles become ever more fast-paced. Britons have been found to spend more on food eaten on the move than any other country in Europe with our continental neighbours more likely to take time out to enjoy meals. Brake and Direct Line’s survey shows it’s not just meal times being squeezed by our busy lifestyles, as one in five drivers (20%) admit to doing their hair, applying makeup or otherwise tidying up their appearance while at the wheel. One in 20 (5%) admit doing so in free-flowing traffic, risking appalling crashes.

ALL-NEW PEUGEOT 308 SW Peugeot has unveiled its latest model, the new 308 SW. It is described as “a dynamic estate car with a performance-oriented design.” It goes on sale in the UK in June and prices will be announced nearer that time. The profile of the 308 SW benefits from a wheelbase and rear overhang that are 11cm and 22cm longer respectively than the hatchback. The car’s dimensions allow it to offer volumes that are among the best in the segment. The boot below the parcel shelf is 660-litres, which includes 70-litres of storage under the floor. The new car is fitted as standard with ‘Magic Flat’ rear seats which are both easy and intuitive to use. This system allows instant folding of both parts of the rear seat using levers accessible on the sides of the boot. Thanks to the automatic lowering of the rear seat cushions, the result is a flat floor and 1,660-litres of luggage space. Movable/removable dividers can be positioned in various positions to create appropriate security for loads, while an elastic strap on the left side trim allows smaller objects to be held in place.

From launch, the new 308 SW is available with petrol and diesel engines. For petrol, power outputs range from 130 to 155hp with CO2 emissions from 109g/km. The range will include the new three-cylinder turbocharged petrol versions – 110 and 130hp. This will mark the showroom debut of Peugeot’s innovative new ‘PureTech’ powertrains. Diesel units go from 92 to 150hp with CO2 figures that do not exceed 111g/km. Likely to prove popular with buyers is

the new BlueHDi 1.6-litre 120bhp diesel which, when linked to a six-speed manual gearbox, has combined fuel consumption of 88.3mpg and emissions of 85g/km. This is a record in the segment. The 308 SW is fitted with ultra-low rolling resistance tyres developed in an exclusive partnership with Michelin. These provide average savings in CO2 emissions of 3g/km, with reduced braking distances on wet roads and wear rates identical to standard tyres. They will be fitted to more than a third of models.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

FIGHT NIGHT THE AFTERMATH THIS WEEK: WE TALK TO CHARLIE LOWE FROM FITTER THAN FIT YOU RECENTLY FOUGHT AN OPPONENT AT THE HUGELY SUCCESSFUL FIGHT NIGHT - THE RISING. HOW DID YOU PREPARE FOR THAT?

TIP OF THE WEEK You’re probably telling yourself something like “I should exercise right now. If I don’t work out, I’m never going to get fit.” This statement has many hidden obstacles. Instead, remember that exercise is a choice, and it’s about whether you want to, or not! And instead of thinking about how you’ll look if you don’t work out, think about how great you’d look if you did!

Charlie 07968855163 Michael 07766090116 info@fitterthanfit.co.uk PHOENIX MMA 725 Wimborne Road Bournemouth, BH9 2AX 152

A lot of training. I knew my opponent and what kind of fighting back ground she had come from. So Michael formed a game plan around that. There was strength and endurance work speed and power and lots of cardio. Loads of fighters can have amazing skills but if they gas early on its all over. We also did a lot of sparring. ALOT. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE STRIKE TO USE IN ANY FIGHT? That would really depend on who your fighting. Your ‘go to’ move may not always work on everyone so you have to adapt quickly. I’m always quite fond of just a good right cross though simple but if timed correctly effective.

HOW HAS WASSMUFFIN FITTER THAN FIT HELPED YOU? Although both Michael and I come from a Thai Back ground My specialty is the fitness side and Michaels the fighting side. I’ve learnt so much from Michael. He’s so knowledgeable in this field. Sometimes the small things make all the difference. If I could just actually do exactly what he said when I left my corner it would all be tickety boo! WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED AFTER YOUR CLOSE LOSS. THERE WAS ONLY 1 POINT IN IT? No not at all. it was a close fight I gave it my all at the time. But I knew it was going to be a hard one. My opponent Jo is a tough cookie. But I took this fight on knowing I was going to be lighter, less experienced and I’m quite a bit older. I just wanted to fight. And A lot of people afterwards told me it was a good fight. I would rather loose well then win badly.

THE ATMOSPHERE ON THE NIGHT WAS FANTASTIC DID YOU HAVE ANY NERVES THOUGH? Oh Yeah for Sure. But it was such a great show to be on and I had a great team behind me. Also I was very lucky to have some fantastic friends in the crowd including Bootcampers and people from the Fitter than Fit Team. I really enjoyed the evening and think Phoenix put on an incredible show. The next ones lined up for May 24th and an amazing amount of tickets have sold already so for anyone who is interested I suggest you get in contact with us at Fitter than Fit or directly to Phoenix MMA Gym. HOW DID YOU FIND THE TIME TO FIT IN YOUR TRAINING AROUND EVERYTHING ELSE YOU DO? I’m not going to lie that is one of the hardest parts. Trying to juggle

3 kids, A home, a job, teaching and training. But If you’re passionate about something you find time. And I have a very understanding helpful family which I’m very appreciative of. The kids will always come first that’s standard. but when you make training part of your life style it fits in somewhere. Whether you get up 30 mins earlier or you sacrifice your favorite TV show things are adaptable if you want them bad enough. WILL YOU BE FIGHTING AGAIN SOON? Yes definitely when they find me a good match I’m on it. I’m training all the time anyway. Its just a question of as soon as I know adapting my training towards the style of whoever I’m matched with. I can’t wait to get back in there.

RAMSAY BRINGS IT HOME After the success of his Ultimate Cookery Course, Gordon Ramsay has followed up with a new guide to home cooking. He tells Andy Welch about the pitfalls to avoid and offers a few recipes to try for yourself.

Whether you struggle to make toast or boast impressive kitchen skills, we could all learn a thing or two from Gordon Ramsay. The fiery TV star might be more famous nowadays for swearing at clueless restaurateurs and hotel owners, but don’t forget he’s also one of the best chefs this country’s ever produced, with 14 Michelin stars currently awarded to his restaurant empire. As he pointed out in his recent Channel 4 series Ultimate Cookery Course, he’s been a chef for more than 25 years, has worked for the best cooks in the world and, in turn, has taught some of the finest too. His new book and upcoming TV series, Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Home Cooking, which is due to air later this year, follows on from where the Ultimate Cookery Course left off, aiming to strip away any complexities about making amazing food in limited time. “I want to show that cooking can be fun and exciting,” says the 46-year-old fa156 ther-of-four. “It’s all about encouraging

people to take a fresh look at familiar ingredients, and throw in some new ones to create a delicious meal. I want people to have confidence in the kitchen.” He maintains that amateurs overcomplicating things is the biggest problem he sees in home kitchens, a place where simplicity and ease should be the main goals. He thinks people pile pressure on themselves too. “When you cook in a professional kitchen you must keep to a standard and ensure every element of the dish is perfect,” he says. “When you cook at home, you’re cooking for the people you love, family and friends. “Home cooking should be fun and if you make a mistake or something’s not perfect, it’s OK, you can keep practising. “Home cooks have become more savvy and adventurous with their ingredients and methods in the past 10 to 15 years,” he adds. “With the rise of farmers’ markets, artisan bakers and local butchers, there are a lot of different and interesting foods readily available. You’ve just got to learn to cook them properly.”

Of course, he recommends all of the recipes in his new book, but if pushed to pick out a few favourite dishes he’s particularly excited by the sausage and caramelised red onion hotpot and the home-made fish fingers, which give what can often be thought of as children’s food a grown-up, herby twist. Among other standout recipes are the beef stew with mustard suet dumplings - something every cook should have in their repertoire. Making home-made baked beans might seem like a faff, when the tinned varieties we’re used to are so good, but Ramsay’s version, served with crispy potato cakes, is definitely one to try, while the chocolate pistachio semifreddo’s easy to make but looks and tastes like something you might find in a quality bistro.

Three of the Best

Maille Pepper Sauce £1.49 for 200g, Tesco

Tiptree Organic Onion Relish, £1.69, available online various delis

Geeta's Premium Mango Chutney, £2.09 for 320g, Ocado


RECIPE

Home made Fish Fingers

TIP

INGREDIENTS

Drain on kitchen paper if necessary and season with a pinch of sea salt before serving.

500g white fish fillet, skinned (pollock is perfect) 4 sprigs of dill, leaves only 100g panko breadcrumbs 4tbsp plain flour

2 free-range eggs, beaten Sunflower oil, for frying Knob of butter Salt and freshly ground black pepper

METHOD Slice the fish into chunky fish finger shapes, down the fillet, rather than across it. Sprinkle lightly with salt, then cover and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to firm up. Finely chop the dill and mix with the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Put the flour into another shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. Put the beaten eggs into a third bowl. Using kitchen paper, rub any excess salt off the fish. Dust the fish pieces in flour and shake off any excess, then dip in the egg, making sure all the sides are coated. Allow any excess to drip off, then cover in the dill breadcrumbs. Roll the fish between your hands before cooking. This will get rid of any hard edges that might otherwise burn in the pan. Place a large heavy-based frying pan over a medium-high heat and add enough sunflower oil to lightly coat the bottom. When hot, shallow-fry the fish fingers on either side for three minutes. Add the butter towards the end of the cooking time to help the fish fingers crisp up and turn a deep golden colour.

RECIPE

Carrot, cumin & orange salad

SERVES 4

Ingredients 5 carrots, peeled and grated Zest and juice of one orange 75g pumpkin seeds 50g sunflower seeds 1½tsp cumin seeds, toasted 1tbsp Dijon mustard

1tbsp runny honey 1tbsp white wine vinegar 3-4tbsp olive oil 2tbsp torn coriander leaves 2tbsp torn mint leaves Sea salt

Method Mix the carrots in a bowl with the orange zest and juice, the pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Toast the cumin seeds in a dry frying pan until golden. Allow to cool, then grind in a pestle and mortar with a little salt, then stir into the carrot mixture. Combine the mustard, honey, vinegar and olive oil in a bowl. Add the mint and coriander leaves, then taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Pour over the salad and toss well. This can be eaten straight away, or will keep for up to two days in the fridge.
