Local estate and lettings agency Fox & Sons in Winton is delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Barnes as its new Lettings Manager, effective immediately. Chris, who brings a wealth of experience in the private rented sector to the Fox & Sons lettings team, is looking to expand the branch’s lettings business in 2014 and work with an increasing number of landlords and buy-to-let investors in the months ahead. Chris has 14 years experience in the property sector including letting properties in the London market and in Bournemouth. He recently gained a technical qualification from the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA) so is well placed to advise landlords and investors with properties in and around Bournemouth on how to get the most out of their rental investment. “I am thrilled to take on the manager role here at Fox & Sons Lettings in Winton,” says Chris. “Clearly, Bournemouth has a thriving rental market with big local employers and excellent commuter links drawing many professional renters into the area. “I am looking forward to working with even more landlords going forward,” Chris continues. “As one of the area’s leading agents offering a range of services including sales and insurances, our team is able to offer advice at every step of the lettings process. That said, we also tailor the service to the clients needs, whether they simply need to source a tenant or need a full property management and rent collection service.” Fox & Sons in Winton is part of a wider national network which is undergoing major expansion, both through opening new branches and acquiring existing local lettings business. Indeed, the next two years will see Fox & Sons’ parent company doubling the size of its lettings network. “The demand for rental property is increasing, so much so that the number of properties we currently have available to let does not match the number of tenants registering with the branch,” Chris explains. “I would urge any landlord with property to let to get in touch. In the current market with so much demand there is no reason any rental home should be experiencing void periods.” Fox & Sons Lettings in Winton works closely with other local Fox & Sons’ branches including its office in Poole. It will soon be launching a dedicated lettings service from this branch in a bid to further extend the breadth of service it can offer to landlords and investors.

If you have a property to let, or are interested in property investment and would like advice, please contact Chris at Fox & Sons in Winton on 01202 534 396 or email: wintonlet@sequencehome. co.uk

Instruction levels of fully managed lettings properties stands at 100+ up to month

3 and an astounding 24 hour turnaround on all sales instructions from initial instruction to sale being agreed. The list of endlessly pleased clients is reflected by their ever growing testimonials on their website: www.mkestates.co.uk MK predict a bright future and are setting sights on new premises, to be revealed soon.

INTERIORS

SPRING HAS SPRUNG 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. 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. This is springs trending look. The colour blue can create a bright,bold and striking statement room, or a tranquil and soothing escape.

OPEN HOUSE

AGENTS COMMENT ‘This is a fantastic house which has been cleverly designed to make the most of the topography of the land. The larger than normal windows provide beautiful glimpses over the garden and light streams through the entire house as a result.  The property is situated close to the beach but far enough away so that you don't have hordes of tourists parking outside and is situated in one of the most desirable areas to live in the South of England.    We highly recommend viewing this property as, without appreciating the interior it would be impossible to understand 22

this home's enormous appeal’.


BRANKSOME PARK WESTMINSTER ROAD An impressive highly contemporary detached house in a small development close to beach. The property is situated within Branksome Park, one of the finest places to live in Southern England. Branksome Chine, a wooded valley that runs through the heart of the area, leads to a superb safe, sandy beach. A relaxing stroll through the woodlands of the Chine is always very pleasant.  Branksome Beach Restaurant and Rooftop Bar, a popular destination for diners, is right next to the beach and the famous beach huts. Branksome Chine offers a more peaceful environment than the central parts of either Bournemouth or Poole, as you would expect, but it is not far from the action and is superbly situated for getting shopping locally at Westbourne, Penn Hill or Canford Cliffs. A wider variety of shops and restaurants are available at Poole and Bournemouth. The front door opens to a reception hall with stairs leading to the lower ground floor and first floor and additionally to bedroom four with an ensuite shower facility.  Directly ahead of the reception hall are glass sliding doors which open into a stunning open plan kitchen / dining / sitting area with wonderful windows streaming the entire space with light.  At the end on the left is the high specification kitchen with extensive range of high gloss eye and base level units, built in microwave, gas hob, extractor fan and oven, dishwasher, breakfast bar and quartz work surfaces.  There is a large terrace which is accessed via bi-folding doors from the kitchen.  The entire space is tiled with underfloor heating and has an intriguing mezzanine which overlooks the lower sitting room.  The sweeping staircase with stainless steel and glass balustrade turns to the lower ground floor where there is a cozy large sitting room with double bifolding doors opening to an al fresco dining area underneath the terrace, which is also accessed from the kitchen above.  A further door from this room leads to the lower ground floor hall with laundry room, boiler cupboard, downstairs cloakroom and large garage which could be further divided to provide an additional study (subject to building regulations).  Stairs from this level then return back up to the main landing and further on to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, all with ensuite facilities.  The most impressive of which is the master bedroom with the bed positioned in the centre of the room to allow easy access to cupboards and enormously pleasing view of the beautifully landscaped gardens which opens to the ensuite bathroom facility with separate WC which has been finished to an incredibly high specification. The property is approached via a driveway providing access to a further two houses with own parking on the left hand side and established gardens surround.  To the side and rear are beautifully maintained and cleverly established landscaped gardens providing a tranquil private space.   

OWNERS COMMENT We love the contemporary feel, the light and airy nature and the opening bifold door at two levels leading onto the decking / garden. The garden is a good size and allows for further landscaping opportunities. Although the driveway is shared by two neighbours it is owned by us and provides further gardening opportunities and includes a convenient compost area.  The rear garden has decorative shrub lighting (mains powered LEDs and timer controlled) and looks magical at night.

Spring Butterflies Chandelier, £3,253.20, In Spaces

Decorative Stockholm chandelier, £85, Ikea

Large Statement Chandelier, £179, Marks and Spencer

Nothing says grandeur like a chandelier, but these statement fittings don't have to be reserved for palaces and the sets of Downton Abbey. Keeley Bolger puts dazzling displays in the spotlight. They may conjure images of royalty and riches, but there's no reason why chandeliers can't illuminate more downto-earth homes too. In fact, forget six-figure price tags and humongous fittings dripping with crystals (though those are fine if that's what you fancy!), the chandeliers of bygone eras have inspired a wide range of chic and contemporary versions. Whether you're after a design that's replete with ornate gold arms or boasting bold art deco charm, chandeliers can be the leading light of a room. Lucy Powles, director of luxury design service Cocovara (www.cocovara.com), is a big believer in using a fabulous fixture to really make a statement with lighting. "If you want to add a wow factor to any room, I always recommend using beautiful and unexpected chandeliers," she says. "They become decorative elements as well as functional, and will add glamour to any

size of space." And size is all-important when it comes to picking out chandeliers, according to Powles. "In general, I'd say opt for bigger rather than smaller," she says. "You can always hang the piece slightly closer to the ceiling so it doesn't feel so overwhelming," With such a flashy focus to your room, it pays to keep an eye on the type of lighting beaming out from your stunning centrepiece. "When it comes to creating a relaxing ambience, soft lighting is key," explains Lucy. "Make sure you install dimmer switches on every chandelier in your home, so you can create the mood and offer a more flattering light." Chandeliers may be a bold choice, but that doesn't mean you have to play it safe and stick to just the one. "Don't limit yourself to just one chandelier either," says Powles. "In a very large room, two slightly smaller fixtures can add an individual interest, while looking just as chic." Keen to see your rooms in a new light? Here are some fabulous fittings guaranteed to lift your style out of the darkness.. 43

Neighbour disputes Neighbour disputes are notorious for running up huge legal costs. Here are some points to help you avoid these sort of disputes: • 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.

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.

• 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.

SEASON’S GLEAMINGS

Dusting, polishing and scrubbing may not sound glamorous, but a good spring clean can transform a home. Gabrielle Fagan reveals a spring strategy, time-saving tips and stylish kit. Spring is in the air and it’s time for that annual ritual - giving rooms a good clean and polish. If the prospect fills you with gloom and you’re tempted to ignore this chore, be aware that welcome sunshine pouring through the windows can shine a harsh light on pockets of dust,

68

dingy paintwork and grubby surfaces. Luckily, modern cleaning products and tools can make light, speedy work of the process, compared to the weeks our grandmothers used to take beating rugs, scrubbing and scouring and rehanging drapes. “A top-to-bottom, thorough clean won’t just make a home look more appealing, it can also boost your spirits and make you feel more energised, as rooms will feel more airy and spacious,” says Simon Glanville,

managing director of specialist storage company, STORE. “Use the opportunity to take a good look at spaces and, if need be, de-clutter, which isn’t about throwing everything away. “Rather, it’s about losing what’s useless and ugly in order to have space for things that are useful and beautiful.” Before you begin your super spring sort-out, check out these expert tips on making it easy, and smart kit that will make even the most reluctant yearn to blitz away the winter blues.


INTERIORS

TOP TIP Turn on the music, get a timer and get each member of the family to fill one bag full of unwanted items, then recycle or sell them.

"To get over that mental block that prevents you actually starting, break the task into bite-sized pieces. Allocate 20 minutes each day to tackling just one area," suggests Glanville. "Always start with the bedrooms and work your way down, and never tackle more than one room at a time, otherwise you'll get overwhelmed." Top kit: Ensure you have all the kit to hand as you move around your home. Designer Sebastian Conran's produced

a sleek Universal Expert range, including a steel Storage Caddy, £44, from West Elm. John Lewis has a smart Whitewash Wood Crate, £35, which could be ideal for a utility room. TOP TREAT Reward yourself for your efforts with fun and useful items. Animal String and Scissor Holders, featuring a badger, owl, Westie dog or fox design, £25 each, Graham & Green.

GO RETRO Get a retro touch echoing yesteryear cleaning with a Linea Vintage Laundry Advert Cushion, £20, House of Fraser.

Dust mites love to lurk in duvets and carpets, and these can cause problems for those with allergies, says David Begley, cleanologist at Johnson Cleaners. “Often, duvets are overlooked but they should really be cleaned twice a year,” he advises. “Most domestic washing machines are too small to clean a duvet effectively and professional laundering is more likely to kill off dust mites and the allergens produced by them. This is particularly important for people who suffer from asthma or other respiratory ailments.” People shed enough skin each day to feed one million dust mites, so regularly vacuum your mattress, bed and headboard. Curtains need cleaning at least once every six months, to prolong their life and keep them looking as good as new, he says. If washing at home, iron while still damp and don’t forget to release the pleats, as they can harbour dust. Top tip: Carpets accumulate a lot of

dust, dirt and even fungi over time, all of which are unsightly, unhygienic and can be potential health hazards. Up to 80% of carpet dirt is loose and can be removed with regular vacuuming. Make it a rule that people remove shoes at the front door so you avoid dirt and grit being walked in. Top kit: If carpets have stubborn stains, a Rug Doctor professional cleaning machine starts from £20 a day from Johnsons Cleaners. Wooden floors need regular sweeping; an Iris Hantverk Tall Dustpan & Brush Set, £55, John Lewis, will stop the job being backbreaking. Top treat: Make a kitchen zing with colour with bright yellow Kenwood appliances. A Kmix Kitchen Machine, reduced to £279, and Hand Mixer, £64, Isme. Pretty up a utility area with Dunelm’s pink cleaning utensils range, which includes a Raspberry Spectrum Collection Dustpan and Brush, £2.09, and a pink Slim 3 Tier Indoor Airer, £9.99.

ASK THE EXPERT Tony Peters Planit Mortgages Your local mortgage adviser

RICHARD GODSELL Est. 1928

ASK THE EXPERT Stuart Mason Sales Director Richard Godsell

SELF EMPLOYED WHO IS FIGHTING YOUR CORNER? If you are a contractor or self employed, you are probably thinking about getting your books over to your accountants to “work their magic”. Accountants can get quite creative when it comes to saving us money on the tax bill and as far as we’re concerned the lower the tax bill the better. HOWEVER when it comes to remortgaging or getting a new mortgage your low tax bill means low borrowing. If you are looking to remortgage to a lower rate or take out a new mortgage in the next 12 months this is the perfect time to get your accounts optimised for the mortgage you need. As a guide, lenders generally use a 4 x income ratio but affordability is the main issue for them. They look at your income and take out all of your regular outgoings such as council tax, utilities, child care costs and transportation costs as well as making their own estimate of the cost of each child you have. Anything left over is disposable income which is then used for your mortgage payment. They may decide you can afford 30%, 50% or maybe even 60% of that disposable income.

Impaired credit

All the agents in my town are offering good rates at the moment so how do you choose who is the best aren’t all agents the same? It’s a good question most peoples perception of Estate Agents is that all they do is put a property on the websites and wait for something to happen and it’s a mediocre service from there on in. Its simply not the case. With so many agents to choose from its really is a case of speaking to your local property experts. Before arranging valuations look around to see who are selling houses close to you, check the internet for comparable houses and walk up and down the high street to see there offices. Arrange a valuation and listen to the advice they give you not just who says the highest price.

The good news is there is a lender in the market that only uses your latest year’s income, so no more averaging over 3 years.

At Richard Godsell we only employ experienced and

And even better than that, they will also accept:-

Agent round who has never actually bought or sold a house

• CCJ’s and defaults

before! A good and experienced agent will advise you and

• Previous repossessions

help right through the sales process to the moving date

• Debt management plans

and beyond an this is where agents will gain their good

• Late payments Employed applicants can also use this lender so if you have been struggling to find a good mortgage due to some unavoidable

mature staff so you don’t get the young spiky haired Estate

reputations. Go with the agent you feel comfortable with and you can trust rather than the agent just offering a quick and budget price deal!!

financial “blips” then you might well have found someone to help.

What about contract workers? Contract workers have struggled in recent years to prove income and find a lender to support them in their search for their own home leaving them at a disadvantage over their employed colleagues even though they are often earning more money than their counterparts.

If you have a question you would like to ask us we’d be more than happy to help out. Call us on the number below or visit our website:

There are lenders out there who specialise in mortgages for contract workers at competitive rates. Sometimes even less than a High Street lender would offer employed applicants.

Finally The mortgage market is opening up once more to sections of the workforce who have been finding it difficult to get a new mortgage or remortgage. Maybe it’s time you found out what to do about your next move.

JANET ELLIS, TV PRESENTER & ACTRESS My kitchen is my favourite, because it runs from the front of the house to the back, and at each end the windows look out on to gardens,” says Ellis, whose daughter is singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor. “It’s got fitted cream Ikea kitchen units, stainless steel worktops and a huge oven. There’s a large central island and running on from that, a dining table which seats 12. It’s great for family meals when Sophie and her family come over, as well as my other children. “The whole room is serene in cream shades, and an oasis compared to rest of the house, which is filled with colour and lots of art. On guard by the kitchen door is a life-size model of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.”

ADVICE

THE POWER OF VIDEO MARKETING With HOUSE Magazine now producing promotional films for our clients we talk to our very own film maker Steve about why film is invaluable when promoting your brand.

How many times did you watch a video this week? Was it a video forwarded by a colleague, or a clip a friend shared on facebook, or something daft or thought provoking that’s trending on reddit, Pinterest or YouTube? Then you already know about the power of video. Or perhaps you’re one of the very few who doesn’t regularly expose themselves to video marketing, whether it’s selfies with stars, how-to videos on the minute details of obscure hobbies, or slick trailers for new products and services. If so you are in the minority.

In addition, we have a natural tendency to respond to motion – our innate sense of self-preservation and curiosity causes us to follow any moving object with our eyes, which causes the brain to investigate the movement. As a result, movement on a screen doubles the level of attention that we give to it.

The reach and appeal of video marketing is undoubted. 46% of people surveyed said they’d be more likely to ask for information about products or services after seeing them in online videos. And that’s not just a survey statistic. The average internet user spends 88% more time on websites that feature videos. Sites with video gain two to three times more monthly visitors.

Search engines too, are ‘hardwired’, through the algorithms that govern their rankings, to respond to video. Having video on the landing page of your website can double its chances of appearing on the first page of Google and video anywhere on your website can increase search engine traffic by 150%.

There are two this powerful own psychology the other is the engines operate.

96

reasons for effect: our is one and way search

Humans are hard-wired to respond to faces and movement. In 1992 scientists discovered the fusiform face area (FFA) which is part of the occipital lobe of the brain dedicated to recognising faces. As a result our natural instincts to look at, and respond to, faces can be triggered by seeing people in videos – our interest is engaged and we react positively to the visual stimulus.

So now you know the cold, hard facts about video marketing. But there’s another reason that it works.

For small to medium sized businesses, video is the swiftest and surest way to become recognised. Video marketing is effective because it has passion and heart, which allows any business no matter how niche, quirky or complex to express itself to customers. A one-woman outfit selling personalised iPod covers, five guys creating financial solutions, or a firm of thirty people making sofa cushions, are all just as likely to reach a huge audience as the giants of video like Apple and Virgin. All it takes is creativity, flair and a good product to bring to market. There are two things about video marketing that might surprise you. The first is the cost – high calibre video marketing is now cost effective for even the smallest enterprise. The second is that, unlike other publicity systems, video marketing has its own inbuilt distribution mechanism – with the advent of YouTube and other sharing sites, video has already become the most shared marketing method, ever.

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.

ASK THE LETTING EXPERT Jeremy Clarke Belvoir Lettings

Property values rise by £371 per week in Christchurch Last week, a landlord who lives in Bransgore, came into our office to discuss the rising property values in the area. He owns a varied portfolio of rental properties, primarily in Christchurch and Burton with one in Barton on Sea, so we thought it would be interesting to compare the increase in property values around the area. Over the last 12 months, in Christchurch, average property values have risen from £298,500 to £317,800, a rise of just over £19,300, or £371 per week. When I looked at some of the surrounding areas, Burton has had a much lower average increase in property values, at around £291 per week, whilst Barton on Sea has a higher rise than Christchurch and Burton, with an average increase of around £423 per week. A rise in all average property values suggests the market is recovering steadily in our area, but not rocketing out of control like some of the press would make us believe – good news for home owners and landlords alike! When considering this particular landlords buy to let portfolio, yields can be in the order of 4% to 5% per year, depending where you buy, so combine that with steady rental growth, excellent increases in capital values of the properties themselves and it could be a good time to invest in the property market in Christchurch as property values start to rise. Just before I finish though, Lymington along the coast, saw rises of £318 per week, which on the face of it looks very respectable. However, the percentage increase was nearly 40% less, as actual values only rose by 4.4% compared to Christchurch’s of 6.4%. If you would like some advice about buying to let, be you a landlord with a portfolio or someone thinking of investing in the rental market, please, feel free to pop into our offices on Fountain Way (near Waitrose) in Christchurch.

ASK THE EXPERTS Bournecoast Property Agents Yields? What Exactly Are They? Do you fully understand the term Yield?  If you do, you will know immediately what we mean when we say it brings you immediate answers to investment questions, or most likely it can leave you confused - even after it’s been explained in basic detail. It is amazing that so few landlords and property investors understand the meaning of ‘yield’ and why it is so important as a key investment measure. We regularly come across people who have not got the first idea how to use it, how to calculate it or why they should pay any regard to it whatsoever. ‘Yield’ is the income return on an investment (ROI) or return on capital employed (ROCE). It is normally articulated as a percentage of the investment’s cost to buy or the full market value. The principal purpose is to parallel the playing field between different and varying investments so that accurate comparisons can be made about performance. HOWEVER, there are two issues you need to consider. If using yield to compare the returns on differing types of properties, you need to also include or ‘factor in’ the additional costs that may apply to those assets.  A property may for example pay a gross return of 6.9% - thereby beating a high street savings account hands down. However, the reality is that your return would be less as you also have to account for expenses such as insurance, maintenance and repair and other expenses that you do not incur with a high street savings account. Therefore, it is imperative to accurately project your costs and to watch closely your actual returns to ensure a precise and up-to-date record of how your investments are performing. Other issues with buying property are the associated costs. Some investors would buy using a mortgage, others would pay cash. Therefore, we would all get different yields according to our personal circumstances and purchase methods. That is why yield, as a tool for comparison, is expressed as a return on the cost of purchase and normally stated as GROSS yields.  NETT yields are calculated by subtracting the day to day costs of managing the investment i.e. letting fees, service charges (applicable to leasehold properties) etc. This calculation gives a more accurate indication of how your capital employed is working for you. This can be a detailed and potentially complicated calculation and that’s why each landlord/investor should do their own research and decide what level of yield they are happy with. Yield comparisons is most useful when decide between two likely properties for investment. The moral of the story? Talk to an experienced property investment company who will help you do your homework and crunch the numbers to make sure that all of your investments are sure to yield the right results. Bournecoast have a large portfolio of investment properties.  With over 50 years experience they are well suited to identify properties with the highest rental potential and are always on the look out for investors, whether just starting out or the more experienced.  For further information please contact Bournecoast on 01202 437888.

AN OLDFASHIONED UPDATE

Sam Wylie-Harris takes a walk down memory lane and selects some pretty vintage-style homewares. If you're feeling nostalgic, and your most-loved possessions are ones which hark back to childhood memories, chances are, retro-inspired homewares will appeal. Adding some decorative accessories modelled on styles from the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies can also add quirky and feminine charm to the home. "We love bringing back classic items from key moments in time, and then making them right for today's world," says

Oliver Tress, managing director at Oliver Bonas. "For the 1958 furniture range, we've used the sophisticated silhouette from the original Fifties shape in a gorgeous mixmatch chalky colour palette. But we also wanted to make it comfy enough and have used lovely feather wrapped cushions, rather than the very dense pads that were used then. "The result is a stunning Fiftiesinspired design, but with a serious level of comfort." Elsewhere, bold floral upholstery is an easy update for rooms, along with soft pastel hues and sorbet shades,

characteristic of the bygone era, while second-hand keepsakes bring added interest. Even a nostalgic kitchen look can be easily achieved, with a retro style cooker. "Our Classic range offers everything a traditional range cooker should - bevelled doors, arched windows and a traditional towel rail in a choice of seven colours," says Wai San Hon, assistant brand manager at Rangemaster. The British manufacturer has also launched the Rangemaster in cream and racing green, for a truly vintage look - you'll want to go in search of some oldfashioned recipe cards! 135

DIY EXPERT

ROGUE TRADERS

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

THIS WEEK: HOW TO FIND A GOOD TRADESPERSON. There can’t be many who haven’t had a bad experience with tradesmen - and, yes, let’s face it, it’s usually men because tradeswomen are pretty thin on the ground. Problems can range from the relatively minor but extremely annoying, such as not turning up and not telling you they’re not turning up, to the much more serious, such as abandoning the job halfway through, leaving you thousands of pounds out of pocket and with a home that may not even be habitable. Yes, it is definitely hard to find a good tradesperson even the ones who are good at their jobs can often be unreliable or unwilling to answer their phone when you need them. Thankfully though, there are ways to find better ones. It’s no secret that the best way to find someone who’ll do a good job is to get a recommendation - however,

this doesn’t necessarily follow when it’s a recommendation from another tradesperson. While your plumber may know a good electrician they’ve worked with before, for example, be wary - it might just be a case of them trying to get a mate some work. I’ve had some bad experiences of this lately, resulting in me employing unreliable, incompetent and work-shy tradesmen (and even one who had serious psychological flaws and wasn’t afraid to show them...). Recommendations from a former customer, or from your own friends, colleagues and neighbours, are more reliable, but if no one you know can suggest the person you need, where can you turn? An architect, if you’re using one, should have contractors they use regularly and will be happy to get quotations from. Depending on how much you want the architect to do (and how much you want to pay them), they will often be able

to manage the project and the contractors for you. A trade body, such as the Federation of Master Builders (www.fmb.org. uk) or the Federation of Roofing Contractors (www. corc.co.uk), can also be a good place to start. Many trade bodies have a section on their website where you can search for members. There should also be an explanation of what qualifications members have, the code of practice they’ve signed up to or the undertakings they make, etc, so you know what to expect. For some jobs, it’s essential to check the tradesperson belongs to the professional body they claim to. For example, if you need someone to work on a gas appliance, by law they have to be a member of Gas Safe Register. You can check someone’s credentials at www.gassaferegister.co.uk and also search for members near you.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK LEVEL HEADED Laser levels are useful for all kinds of DIY tasks, from putting up dado rails, shelves and pictures to laying tiles and painting designs on walls, and the Bosch Quigo (£49.99, Argos) is more useful than most. You simply turn it on and a laser cross instantly appears; cleverly, this is self-levelling, so wherever you put the Quigo, it automatically levels. The best thing about it is its size - this compact cube is just 6.5cm across and weighs next to nothing, making it the ultimate portable power tool. 140

Gas Safe Register members can self-certify their work complies with building regulations, and this is useful with other trades, too. It means you don’t have to employ a building control or approved inspector (unless it’s a job only they can sign off) to confirm that the contractor’s work complies with building regs, as the contractor can do it themselves and, crucially, can issue a certificate to confirm this (which you’ll need when

you sell your home). While this isn’t necessary for all jobs, it is for some, including a lot of electrical work. Many electricians who can self-certify their work belong to NICEIC, and their website - www.niceic.com - is particularly useful because it has a ‘Householder Wall of Shame’ page, which lists companies trying to pass themselves off as NICEIC members when they’re not. Always check!

HOW-TO TIP IF YOU’RE HIRING A DRUM SANDER AND AN EDGER TO SAND FLOORBOARDS, MAKE SURE YOU GET LOTS OF SANDER DUST BAGS These can easily tear and can’t be repaired - trying to patch up holes in the bags with tape doesn’t work. If you haven’t got enough bags and the shop’s shut, you’ll either have to stop sanding or drown in sanding dust, which isn’t pleasant.


ASK THE EXPERT Matt Annen Director Pure Town Planning When does the new affordable housing policy come in in Christchurch and East Dorset? The new affordable housing policy of Christchurch Borough Council  and  East Dorset District Council  has been long anticipated by local developers. These Councils have been the last in the area where you can build as many as 14 dwellings without making any contribution towards affordable housing. But the new policy will bring them into line with Bournemouth where even a single new dwelling must contribute. The Inspector’s report into the Joint Core Strategy, which includes the new affordable housing policy, has now been published. Subject to the previously published alterations, the new policies have been found sound and so the two Councils may go ahead and adopt the plan. The Core Strategy will now be taken to Christchurch Full Council meeting on the 22 April 2014, and to East Dorset Full Council meeting on the 28 April 2014 for formal adoption. The Core Strategy introduces numerous new policies including new green field (and some green belt) housing allocations around Wimborne, Ferndown and Christchurch as well as elsewhere. Probably most significant for our clients is that the removal of the previous 14 unit threshold for providing affordable contributions.  It remains to be seen whether the Government will largely undo this – they are currently consulting on introducing a blanket minimum threshold of ten units across England. For now we adapt, as we have done elsewhere, and carry on. Suddenly the Borough of Poole, which has a 5 unit threshold,  is looking the most attractive location for small developers in the area.

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

PREPARE YOUR CAR FOR SUMMER Road safety charity the IAM is advising drivers on how to prepare their cars for summer use. The IAM recommends seven ways to prepare your car: Now is a good time to give your car a spring clean. Salt is corrosive and will cause rusting if left on the bodywork. If possible take your car to a car wash that specialises in under-car cleaning to get rid of every trace. The UK pollen season can be pretty miserable for hayfever sufferers, so replacing your car’s pollen filter annually is a vital investment. Keeping your air-conditioning well maintained will help as well. Servicing your air-con will also help your car smell better. If it smells stale when you turn the heating on, it could well be a sign that mould is building up in your condenser. Flies will soon be out in force so be sure to refill your washer fluid. Habitually washing the windscreen and headlamps when you stop for fuel is also important as windscreen wipers won’t get rid of all the fly debris. Old wiper blades are not only noisy, they can leave marks on the windscreen, so remember to replace them regularly. Clean them regularly to avoid damaging your windscreen. After a pot-holed winter, check your wheel and tyre alignment. Misaligned tyres wear out more quickly. Anti-freeze contains corrosion inhibitors so you should keep your car topped up all year round - going without could lead to expensive engine damage.

VOLVO SALES SUCCESS Strong demand for Volvo’s new range of models have resulted in a record 6,810 sales in March, making the UK Volvo’s second biggest global market.

UK, said: “Even with the boost of the new registration plate, there’s no mistaking the attention our cars are receiving from buyers.

Top sellers included the V40, V40 Cross Country, V60 and XC60, alongside sustained sales success for the XC90.

“There’s absolutely no doubt that people are seeing Volvo in a new light, thanks to the desirable design, technology and luxury we offer our customers. It’s a really exciting time for the brand here in the UK and we’re delighted with this result.”

The UK market was just 233 cars shy of becoming Volvo’s largest market in March and finished in second place behind China, but ahead of all other markets including Volvo’s home market in Sweden. Jon Wakefield, Sales Director at Volvo Car

Meanwhile, the XC60 – the only premium small SUV to record sales growth in the first three months of this year – continues to sell strongly, with over 1,500 sales in March.

Individual model highlights included the V40, V40 Cross Country and XC90 – more of which were sold in the UK in March than anywhere else in the world.

NEW BMW CONVERTIBLE BMW has just released details of its new M4 convertible, which will go on sale on September 6, priced from £60,730. Powered by a 431 hp 3.0 litre twinturbo six-cylinder engine, it features six manual and seven-speed auto transmissions and race-derived chassis tuning. Electronically restricted to 155 mph, it has a 0-60mph time of 4.6 seconds with the six-speed gearbox, and 4.4 seconds with the seven-speed auto version. Combined fuel economy for the manual version is 31 mpg, and 32.5 mpg for the auto. The quad exhaust system contains electronically controlled flaps which minimise back-pressure and ensure that the M4 Convertible has “an unmistakable BMW M sound.”

aluminium for the bonnet, front wings and many of the chassis components, while carbon-fibre reinforced plastic is used for the propeller shaft and strut brace in the engine compartment. The wheelbase and width have been increased compared with the M3 Convertible. Stand-out M design touches include a powerdome in the bonnet, a sculpted front apron with three air intakes and a black double-slat kidney grille. Standard 19-inch M double-spoke light alloy wheels, flared front and rear wheel arches, M side gills and Air Breathers behind the front wheels and polished slanting quad exhaust tailpipes. The three-part metal roof now provides significantly improved noise insulation –

up to 2dB quieter – as a result of a new headlining which also contributes towards higher levels of winter warmth and comfort. A wider wind deflector and new three-stage neck-warming Air Collar in the front seats are also available. The luggage capacity has also increased to 370 litres when the roof is closed and 220 litres when it is stowed. The BMW M4 convertible will be offered with an extensive specification in the UK. Standard equipment, in addition to Adaptive M suspension and 19-inch M light alloy wheels, will include the BMW Professional media package, upgraded Bluetooth and USB, front and rear Park Distance Control, folding exterior mirrors and heated front seats.

Gear shifting can be fully automatic or via the selector lever or steering column-mounted paddles. Drivelogic allows the driver to choose more sporting or more comfort-oriented shifting programmes while in automatic mode, and the seven-speed M DCT transmission also incorporates Launch Control to ensure the fastest-possible acceleration from standstill. The M4 Convertible is around 60kg lighter than the outgoing M3 Convertible, despite being more lavishly equipped. A low kerb weight of 1,750kg, has been achieved through extensive use of

MINT

TNT TEETH WHITENING

Bournemouth’s latest and greatest answer to male grooming: Mint Salon! We visited this stylish emporium, ready to be transformed!

Lisa, (Our chosen Teeth whitening expert), has been trained by the professionals at the LoveLite clinic of Harley Street, (part of the ACTWP - Association Of Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Professionals), in providing the latest and greatest in non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

For men everywhere it is common practice to receive a less than attentive service from your local barbers, generally men have become used to an ‘in and out’ system; But at Mint, they pride themselves in providing a full customer service. Upon arrival you are offered a selection of beverages, which bypass your standard salon cup of tea. We were even informed that a lot of customers specifically chose the weekend to get their cut, as the salon offers ice-cold beers to anyone that has a treatment.

All of our favorite television, (including Many of the cast of Made in Chelsea) stars target this particular clinic in providing their sought after pearly whites.

Mint is truly unique: we were seated in their customised waiting area, complete with X-box, the latest publications, (yes you can find us there), and a small collection of exclusive clothing brands, including fitness inspired Muscle Mutt, (Creator 19 year old Toby Dormer-Woolley, defiantly one to watch!). The whole salon was buzzing with the latest and greatest house music being played; you cannot help but tap along, (though be careful not to jog your stylist!).

Usually any teeth whitening treatment you undergo can leave your teeth feeling extremely sensitive for days after, damaging the enamel that protects your teeth, not this treatment though. TnT use a specific formula that irradiates the need for harmful peroxide, the new and improved gel actually rehydrates your teeth, and gums!

After being thoroughly entertained, we were shown to our chair, and have a styling session with barber and owner of Mint, James Hill. James saw a gap in the market for a salon that could provide professional styling, traditional male grooming, as well as appealing to that up-to-the-minute lifestyle.

The first stage of treatment involves a pre treatment consultation where your expectations and possible results are discussed. This is followed by the treatment consisting of 3x15 minute sessions, working together to remove stains and whiten!

We took the opportunity to take a look around and ask the staff a few questions: ‘The Only Way is Essex’ Star Joey Essex, officially launched the salon last year, though not all of us have the time to maintain his hefty male grooming regime, Mint offers so many services to keep you looking just as sharp.

Lisa works at very conveniently located, MINT but is also available for mobile teeth whitening services across Dorset and Hampshire.

Back to our hair cut… After being shaved, trimmed and tweaked James wanted to ensure that his client left looking his best: bring on the products! One of the brands that Mint use and sell is GO 24.7 styling products, a very exclusive range that Mr David Beckham uses day to day. What is so exciting about this product is that GO 24.7 handpick the spaces that they wish to showcase their products, as a salon you cannot simply demand a supply, you have to be selected. We were given an education on secret styling tips: how hair works, and easy ways you can create a slick look with the right products, just another little extra from Mint’s stylists who truly care about what they do. What is also great about Mint is that you can book ahead, whilst most barbers abide by the show up and wait policy; these days we are all so busy, we haven’t got the luxury of time to spare, but be sure to book early, Mint’s appointment book is always in high demand.

If you would like any more information or you are already convinced and wish to book, just call Lisa on: 08081683689

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

Tenant eviction is going to cost more! From 22nd April, court fees for evicting a tenant and regaining possession of a property will be going up. A consultation was conducted between Christmas and New and some court fees have increased by 150%! Many of the lettings bodies are shocked at the increase as they had not heard there was to be a discussion on an increase. Ian Potter of ARLA commented ‘we had not picked up, through any formal channel, the change to the costs regarding higher court cost. The fees had not moved for a few years, but it would have been of interest to us to make a response to the consultation’ Landlords may feel particularly hit in light of the need for a court order to recover possession, especially since many local authorities will not re-house tenants until they have been formally evicted. Evicting tenants is an unfortunate situation for landlords to be in and the process is already complicated enough when filling out forms such as a Section 21 to be only told when it reaches court it has been filled out incorrectly and to go back and restart the two month notice process all over again with the correctly filled out form. This can be particularly expensive as in many cases, the tenant is not paying rent and any further delay in gaining possession of a property is also incurring even more rent arrears. Landlords are being advised they can recoup the losses from the tenant, however, if the tenant is struggling to pay the rent arrears it is highly unlikely they will be able to recover the court costs. The court application for possession of a property will increase from £175 to £280. The Section 8 notice claim online service will increase from £100 to £250. These increases will take place from the 22nd April. Bailiff costs regarding the possession of a property are not being increased (presently £110), this is because enforcement costs are going to be subject to a separate review. No doubt they will go up too, later. If you do have a tenant who is struggling with rent arrears, it would be advisable to seek professional advice as to your options.

If you would like a free up to date market appraisal on your property and advice on renting then please contact sharon@moveonrentals.com or telephone 01202 711169 You can now tune into Hopefm.com every Wednesday and listen to Sharon live on ‘The Property Show’.

REVIEW

REVIEWED CASA BRASIL Strange rumours have been circulating Bournemouth recently about a mysterious place where abundant meat circulates, where limits are not known but later discovered, and where no words are necessary but communicated via a prompt card… I’m not exactly speaking of an expedition to a new world, but as close as this seaside town will get. Please welcome, Old Christchurch Road’s latest edition: Casa Brasil ! We took our team lunch to this fine establishment one afternoon this week, to see what all the fuss was about. Casa Brasil offers different menus based on the time of day or day of the week. We sample their mid-week Lunch Rodizio menu: six cuts of succulent meat, plus the Hot and Cold Buffet. We were seated and enticed into a delicious Caipirinha cocktail right away, (not that we really needed much persuasion), the Caipirinha is an original Brazilian cocktail that is often served at the beginning of the meal, it is said to “open the stomach” to food, little did we know how necessary that was. Next it was time for the games master, (our waiter), to explain the rules… Each table is issued with a card, one side green and one side red: When your card is on green, this is the international signal for go! Your waiter will continue to bring your table copious amounts of meat. If you feel the need for a rest, just flip your card to red, and they will continue to serve other tables until you are ready to give it another go, or finish up. With your card on green ready and raring to go, grab a plate of the delicious Hot and Cold buffet. Enjoying our Caipirinhas; which were the ultimate balance between sweet and sour, making for a refreshing lift between our foods, it was time for the main event. You are presented with a giant skewer holding freshly grilled whole joints of meat, which is then carved before your eyes. Whether you like your meat well done or medium rare, it is all very possible here. The meat is grilled over charcoal, as a whole joint so it cooks from the outside in; those of you who love your rare meat, request a more central slice. All of the meat embraced a wonderful Smokey flavour created by their specialist charcoal grills, it its very rare that the flavours of the meat alone can stand so strong in their own right, but they have certainly mastered their method. The first meat to be sampled, were the spiced chicken wings, the return of that Smokey charcoal flavour amplified by a variation of spices, cooked to perfection; the best way to devour these is by hand, don’t be shy. Now onto the pork! We were offered four equally delicious variations of pork: Honey Glazed, Parmesan and salt rubbed, spicy sausage, and smoked ribs. Picanha is a very tender cut of sirloin beef. Cooked in oil and salt alone it was simple, juicy, and very tender. A true testament to their skills in cooking meat well without having to add to the already wonderful flavour with lashings of sauce. To complete our king sized banquet, an unforeseen treat: Pineapple, grilled with a cinnamon coating. This dish really completed our Brazilian dining experience; it was sweet, and spicy, a treat for your taste buds. We give Casa Brasil 5 stars! On top of all of this wonderful food, and its new approach to all you can eat, we couldn’t have felt more welcomed by the friendly staff. They were attentive, entertaining, and added so much to our unique dining experience. We are thoroughly impressed, see you again soon!

The Cottonwood Hotel thecottonwoodboutique.co.uk

Directed by Paul Hendy and starring Olivier-nominated Bob Golding as Eric Morecambe the show is a moving, often hilarious tale about one of Britain’s best-loved entertainers: from humble beginnings in Music Hall to 28 million viewers on Christmas Day, it’s the heart-warming, tear-jerking, laughter-inducing story of the man what brought us the sunshine. You only have to mention the name Eric Morecambe and a smile lights up the faces of all around you. He was a comic genius, a master of timing and one half of the best-loved comedy duo ever to grace television. He has inspired many of today’s comedians, such as Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, Victoria Wood and Miranda Hart. Without him, the world of comedy would have been a much duller place. 2014 marks the 30th anniversary of Eric Morecambe’s death and yet his comedy remains as popular as ever. Book your tickets now and share the laughter with the man who brought us sunshine.
