LIFT ACCESS SEMINAR FOLLOWING the success of MC Plan and Site Services’ first seminar earlier this year, the second has now been booked for early next month. The lunchtime event will be held on Thursday 5th June at The Hermitage Hotel in central Bournemouth, opposite the BIC and is aimed at property professionals wishing to accrue Continuing Professional Development points.

THE FUTURE OF SOPLEY CAMP RESOLVED Ken Parke Planning Consultants has successfully negotiated planning permission for a comprehensive mixed use re-development of the former RAF base at Sopley Camp. The site has stood semi-derelict for a number of years and Ken Parke has been instrumental in ending the Council’s restrictive policy approach and has ensured that a major development can be delivered. The site represents previously developed land but it is located within the green belt. Historically New Forest District

Council have sought to resist any development on the site. Ken Parke successfully argued through the Local Plan process that government policy would support the re-development of the site provided there was no additional impact on the greenbelt. The Council accepted this position and any restrictive policies were dropped from the Local Plan process. This step change in approach from the Council has enabled a process of negotiation which has resulted in a development strategy for the site be-

ing granted by way of outline planning permission. The site can be re-developed by up to 80 dwellings, with 11 additional business units, along with the provision of extensive areas of natural open green space. Ken Parke has stated that this is a win-win for the council, the local community and the landowners, all of whom are keen to see the future of the site resolved. The development includes much needed new housing, including affordable housing, employment opportunities and provides a foot-

path to the centre of Bransgore. Our positive approach and arguments in relation to the correct application of planning policy has enabled a site with an uncertain future to be brought forward for beneficial development.

BEACH HUT MAKEOVER AT SOUTHBOURNE Beach huts are the perfect space to gather the family, spend time with friends, or just to get away from it all reading a book to the sound of the waves. They are in high demand, and it can take many years on a waiting list (or a serious amount of money to buy one outright) to make it just that bit out of reach for most of us. You can of course live the dream and hire them weekly or even daily from www.bournemouthbeachhuts. co.uk or rent one you can sleep in at Mudeford Spit (msbha.org.uk). My friend Brian has a council-owned hut at Southbourne and definitely takes full advantage of it, spending a lot of time at the beach kitesurfing, socialising or relaxing with a brew on a summer’s morning. This hut is in a wonderful position, nestled into the cliff at Southbourne with a glorious view across the bay to Old Harry rocks to the west and the Needles to the east. The hut has great storage and every shelf, cubby and hook seems to be in use for food and cooking paraphernalia, books, chairs, towels - and the obligatory bucket and spades!

The brief: Freshen up the hut for summer without making any irreversible changes (ie. no painting, or new flooring etc). I added accessories that can fit in around the practical essentials to cosy up the space and make it more than just somewhere to cook and store things.

BEFORE

AFTER

The three areas I focused on were: Lighting - for those lazy summer days that you never want to end, or when you’ve just watch the fireworks on the prom, it’s important to set the scene with cosy lighting - use hurricane lanterns (never a naked candle), fairy lights and battery-operated LED spotlights to throw light up into the corners and create a cosy, romantic ambience. Add some citronella candles in the lanterns to keep the mosquitoes at bay. I also added a sparkly beaded curtain to catch the light and also keep the bugs out. Decorative accessories Nothing says British seaside better than strings of cheery bunting blowing in the breeze, so I hung a string of it on the

outside of the hut and draped another on the back wall. This was local and handmade by Parkstone crafter Katherine Sheldon of Beach Huts and Bunting (she also makes gorgeous bags and greeting cards). To continue the seaside theme I added retro signs, vintage crockery and accessories made of shells including the stunning heart made entirely of white cockleshells. Soft furnishings - obviously you won’t fit a normal armchair or sofa in a beach hut, so it’s all about the deckchairs and patio set, but sometimes they can be a bit, well, uncomfortable. Throw in a bunch of cushions and throws to add some colour, adding a touch of cosiness for those chilly summer evenings. The great thing about simple cotton throws and cushions is that they can be removed at the end of the season to be stored over winter, avoiding the dreaded mildew. Does your beach hut need sprucing up for the long hot summer to come? Contact Coral Interiors at www.coralinteriors.co.uk or 01202 798 837.

FERNHEATH PLAY Fernheath Play is a reg.charitable Co(No:1148263) which has been running an Adventure Playground and play centre at West Howe since 1976. We welcome school-age children from all backgrounds, whatever their ethnicity, culture, religion,gender, special needs or disabilities, after school,every weekend and every school holiday all year round.  To avoid excluding any through poverty we charge only an annual reg.fee of £15 and no admission charges for our 3 hour play sessions.  Working Parents who need All day care from 8.30am to 5.30pm do pay £20a day. Equipment and capital costs can be covered as local organisations and individuals have helped with this generously,but it is increasingly hard to fund the high staffing costs for our 2 full time and 12 part-time staff, now that the local authority can no longer support our work to the same extent that they used to.  We have no paid fund raisers. Some of the children are on the Autistic spectrum and need one to one care. Many of the children are from families who are under stress through poverty,unemployment,alcohol and or drug abuse, divorce and disability; our aim has always been to reduce these stresses by giving children somewhere safe to play and giving parents a break from24/7 caring. Can anyone help us with a donation or standing order? Could any company or organisation raise any funds ,or adopt us as their charity this year or next? Could anyone help in other ways? we need more trustees... we,d happily give more info or you can visit www.fernheath. orgor phone Hon .chair Mrs.Paddy Williamson  01202-571072 or e:paddy@fernheath.org    we,d be so glad to be able to continue to let ALL the children play...

CHOOSING THE RIGHT BATH When choosing a new bath, usually it is the shape and size of the room which dictates what sort of bath you buy.

Touch of Glamour - BC Designs SLIPP is a sleek stylish one-piece bath with its clean lines. It cannot fail to impress. A traditional shape but with much, much more. There is a lot of internal space for a bath of this size due to the thin rim design. More of a sit up style bathe with one end raised and sloped creating a comfortable lounging position – Length 1590mm x Width 700mm

You will need to think about how you will be using the bathtub, above all, it should be comfortable. Consider the shape, size and depth of the bath, do you have space for a freestanding bath or limited space where a shower over the bath would work best. Freestanding baths remain a popular choice either sitting directly onto the floor or mounted on wooden or chrome supports. a freestanding bath can either stand alone, be raised on a platform or be located along a wall with the length going along a wall but aesthetically they need space at each end to show off their contours. Moving a bath away from the walls also has implications as far as weight distribution is concerned. You may need to check your bathroom flooring to ensure the floor can cope with the weight. It’s not just a question of how much the bath weighs when it’s empty but when it’s full – water + person.

New BC Designs-Boat Bath, finished in a gloss white full acrylic outer which can be painted to suit your decor. This show-stopping boat bath would make a glamorous addition to any bathroom. 10

Calabar Bath: Create a stunning focal point in your bathroom with the Calabar Freestanding Bath in daring orange - highly dramatic and extremely contemporary. Shown in Farrow & Ball Charlotte’s Locks paint finish.

The lighting you choose can have a huge effect on the mood of your bathroom, lighting in a bathroom can be quite different from any other room in the house. It can create drama and ambience, set a mood and make the bathroom a haven, a place to unwind at the end of a stressful day. Consider light “layers”- light from different sources which are controlled separately to create different effects. A dimmer switch is a simple yet effective way to control the amount of light within the bathroom.

ADVICE

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

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

10

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

THE DELL A unique family home in the heart of Lower Parkstone.

Steeped in history, The Dell is a unique family home in the heart of Lower Parkstone. Rich in original features from the ‘arts and crafts’ period the five bedroom and three reception room property offers spacious living. In a sought after location and within catchment of both Courthill First School and Baden-Powell, walking distance from the bistros and patisseries that Penn Hill and Ashley Cross has to offer, this property offers appeal to both young families and professionals alike. True to its ‘arts and crafts’ design, The Dell features detailing that celebrates the craftsmanship that the style is known for. The movement, as a reaction against mass production of the Victorian era, used local artists and craftsmen to provide decorative features. The Dell boasts many beautiful examples. The use of vernacular materials from doors to bottle glass windows and wooden floors to fireplaces offers a charm not seen in modern developments. On arrival to The Dell, guests are welcomed via a large vestibule, which is almost a room in itself. Onto a grand entrance hall with original oak flooring and fireplace, off which are two large reception rooms, one with a conservatory and the other featuring a unique, circular shaped dining room. The rest of the ground floor houses a recently renovated kitchen-diner, the style of which has been kept true to the ‘arts and crafts’ movement but features top of the range appliances and corian worktop juxtaposed with beautifully hand finished wooden cabinets. The property benefits from a further reception/ bedroom as well as a guest suite with its own entrance that has annexe potential. The first floor offers three double bedrooms, a family bathroom and plenty of storage space in the eaves of the roof. There is certainly scope to create a master suite with en-suite and dressing room should one wish. Along with plentiful living and bedroom space The Dell features a large wrap around southerly facing garden, separate courtyard off the kitchen, a conservatory and garage with off road parking. Vendor Romayne Wild, who has lived in the property for 13 years, says: “My husband and I have brought up three children here and The Dell has certainly provided a flexible living environment for a growing family, even with three teenagers under one roof! The abundance of reception rooms has meant that the house never feels cramped and is fantastic for entertaining friends and family.”

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

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

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

ADVICE

CATCH 22 SHOULD I SELL FIRST OR BUY?

Many who receive a good offer for their home turn it down because they have not yet found “the right property” and worry that they will in effect become homeless should they sell first (although we have never known this to happen!) Of course the problem would become a self-fulfilling prophesy if everyone were to take this stance, and the entire market would grind to a halt. But in reality it isn’t that bad and, whist we don’t have a magic wand, the closest thing we have to a miracle cure is to encourage sellers to have

01202 721 999 | www.leaderandco.com

a little faith. Because as soon as you find a buyer, amazing things can happen! First, the fact that you have a buyer in place positions you as a “red hot buyer” with estate agents. This means you will be offered new properties as soon as they come onto the market, often ahead of public marketing or portal exposure. Secondly, you are in a much stronger negotiating position when you do find a property you like, meaning that you are preferred to other buyers who may be in a weaker position. Thirdly, you may well find that

once you are psychologically committed to your sale, you’ll have a clearer focus on which property will actually suit you best. It’s easy to “umm and ah” when there’s no pressure! So, in essence, if you need help making a decision, find a buyer for yours first! And of course, we’d be happy to help on that front as well! Indeed, we pride ourselves on our ability to create and manage linked transactions. Why not call us on 01202 721 999 to find out how we might be able to help make you move – smooth!

An NDA requires careful and precise drafting. If it is in any way ambiguous regarding the obligations of the parties, it may be necessary to resort to legal action to determine whether disclosed information is afforded the protection of the NDA and whether recourse can be sought by you. It is therefore necessary that you clearly define what constitutes confidential information so as to eliminate grey areas which may be open to dispute.

benefits your home has to offer. The most important factor is to ‘BE POSITIVE’.

You must also remember that you do not have complete freedom to agree restraints on the use of confidential information as disclosure is sometimes required by public or regulatory bodies or by statute.

Where it is necessary to share your sensitive information with another party and in view of the large number of factors which can play an influence, it is important for you to consider the ways to best protect and control the use of your confidential information through a thoroughly drafted NDA.

Remember, first impressions count! You want to create the best possible impression when a potential buyer comes to view your home. Prepare the outside of your home as well as the inside. This is the first part to be seen so needs as much attention as the inside. Ensure the pathways are clear with no weeds, mow the lawn, put the bins out of sight and make sure the front entrance is clean and inviting. Inside, a thorough clean gives the impression your home is well cared for. Avoid clutter. Tidy away anything you don’t want on show. Open all curtains and blinds to let in natural light and straighten the curtains, tying them back wherever possible. Plump up cushions on sofas etc, ensure all beds are made nicely and make sure there is no washing up left on the drainer or food out on the kitchen work surfaces. Ensure you know how your heating and hot water system works so you can answer any questions. Similarly, find out which school catchment you are in, where can you walk the dog, how frequent are the buses, and what local facilities and shops are there? Being able to provide the viewer with all the positive information can help. Do not be afraid to ask a few questions yourself, this can make conversation easier and make the viewer feel more at home, also you can find out the reason for the move and focus your conversation on topics relevant to the prospective buyer. Freshly washed towels can be hung on the rails in the bathroom and toilet. Wherever possible, check that the grouting on the tiles is clean. A gleaming bathroom will create the right impression. Ensure all light bulbs are working so that if the lights are switched on, they work first time. If you have under unit-lighting in your kitchen, switch these on, as the worktops will benefit from this greatly. As with every room-a good smell sells. The old cliché of a pot of coffee and baking bread definitely works and gives the home a wonderfully homely feel.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

Specialists in all aspects of LED Lighting

THE FUTURE OF LED LIGHTING THE FUTURE’S BRIGHT There are a variety of reasons why we should all be using LED lighting as an alternative to the standard lighting used in our homes, offices, hotels, retail, clubs & decorative environments. Look around and you will quickly find that the inefficient, high maintenance light sources, including filament, Fluorescent, Halogen and Neon are still used in abundance. You can change this now and begin making serious energy cost savings by using LED-ZIP Lighting systems. With these new eco�friendly lights you will also be improving the light quality in retail, offices or at points of sale. Providing customers & employees a better, healthier working or shopping environment will lead to improved retail sales & more efficient employees.

Why not give your property a facelift? Absolute stone and brick use a DOFF steam cleaning system based cleaning system. It’s unlike any other steam system and can achieve temperatures 150°C. The DOFF system will remove dirt, paint, moss, algae, fungi, some graffiti, soot and smoke damage from almost any surface. The system uses steam so there is no need to use a chemical biocide during the removal process and the surfaces are dry within minutes.

Age UK Bournemouth reminds older drivers of the importance of car insurance at new registration time

Unlike jet washing, DOFF uses steam rather than preasure to clean so it wont damage the surface being cleaned and also the steam kills any moss, fungi bio matter so the surface stays cleaner for much longer.

This April, as the new ‘14’ registration plates appear on the roads, it is an ideal time for drivers to review their insurance policy and check they are being offered a policy that meets their needs. Peter Kendall, Trading Manager of Age UK Bournemouth, said: “When buying insurance for a brand new car, or even for your current one, it is essential to always shop around before committing to a provider. Securing a car insurance policy that meets your needs, and not just the cheapest deal, is important. You may wish to avoid paying for features that you don’t need and remember to always read your policy in depth, check for any hidden charges, cancellation fees or exceptions that could invalidate a claim. Also watch out for providers that automatically renew car insurance policies each year and charge for cancellation of them. Older drivers should also check there is no upper age limit on a policy.” Age UK Car Insurance, provided by Ageas Insurance Limited, is designed to meet the needs of those in later life. It has no upper age limit, no hidden fees for policy changes. It can be paid by monthly instalment at no extra cost 0% APR Representative.

BOURNEMOUTH ENERGY

(LETS TACKLE FUEL INCREASES TOGETHER)

Moordown based company Bournemouth Energy has been established for over eight years working closely with Estate Agents, Letting Agents, Solicitors, Builders and the General Public providing property services to residential homes and businesses. They provide Energy Performance Certificates for both Domestic homes and Commercial units , Inventories, Floor Plans, Professional Photography and Gas Safety Certificates. They have built up an excellent reputation since there launch in February 2007 providing a structured property services solution to all of their clients. Bournemouth Energy is very selective with the companies that they work with and only works with the most reputable of companies as they are extremely proud of their reputation and the service levels that any customer they deal with receives. In fact if you visit their website it shows a list of working partners that they work with which they would personally recommend to any client of their own. “We have a great network of companies which we work with and I can only thank all of them for their support and know that with our service

levels as our main priority we will be working together for a very long time” says Kieron Heckford, Owner & Managing Director of Bournemouth Energy. In March of 2013 Darren Hart joined the Bournemouth Energy Sales team to drive their renewable energy sales department forward working with Solar Thermal systems and now launching the Bournemouth Energy Thermodynamic System. “We are passionate about helping the public reduce the cost of their fuel bills” says renewable sales manager Darren Hart. “I believe renewable technology is the only real long term solution to take control of the spiralling energy bills we all face in this country” The new Bournemouth Energy Thermodynamic System has been developed and built in England and extensively tested over the last few years. The system really is an incredible piece of British engineering that will supply 80% of your property’s hot water needs and amazingly will work 365 days a year and will even work at night! “We are so very excited about this new renewable system “Says Darren. “Having worked with solar thermal systems I couldn’t believe the numbers when our suppliers proved to me this will produce 80% of a property’s hot water needs” A Bournemouth Energy Thermodynamic system does not rely on direct sunlight to work. It absorbs heat from the atmosphere which means it works day and night 365 days a year.

The System uses reverse refrigeration technology. A refrigerant fluid circulates through the panel absorbing heat energy from the ambient temperature. The increase in temperature changes the fluid into gas which passes into the thermodynamic box, it is then compressed to increase the temperature and passed through a heat exchanger which transfers the heat into the water which is then stored in the excising hot water cylinder. The system will heat the water to a constant 55 degrees. It will work in all weathers and amazingly even works at night so you will always wake up to a cylinder full of hot water. Kieron Heckford said “We believe we have found the right product to reduce energy bills for our customers so I’m delighted. We will also stay true to our company values and offer first class customer service”

To find out more about having one of these systems installed in your property please contact Bournemouth Energy on 01202 532500 or visit their website

WHAT IS HOME STAGING? Discover more about the art of home staging to help you prepare your home for sale.

Have you watched TV programs such as ‘Phil Spencer: Secret agent’, or the original ‘House Doctor’, Ann Maurice and wondered if that would work for your home? TV shows are primarily there for entertainment, often featuring the more extreme homes or personalities. But home staging can make a huge difference even if you are not a serial hoarder and don’t have unusual taste in decor. Home staging is the art (or science?) of actively preparing a home for sale to appeal to the maximum number of buyers in the target market. Any work required needs to be carried out with minimal financial outlay and should be completed in the shortest time possible.

94

When we decide to sell or rent a property, it’s often hard to appreciate that our home, which we may have lived in happily for many years is now a ‘product’. We may still be living in it, but as soon as those pictures go onto the property portal, or in the estate agent’s window, or this very magazine your home is being evaluated, compared against others in the area and yes, judged!

Your potential buyers want to look at a property and imagine living there happily, They want to feel welcomed, relaxed and to experience that elusive ‘feeling’ that tells them they want to make a serious offer.

competing against. If you genuinely want to move on and sell for the best price, professional home staging can be a great investment and a way of taking control of the one aspect of the sale that you can control, the presentation.

They don’t want to see dirt, dated décor, disorder, DIY disasters or too many personal ‘knick-knacks’. Even if they can see past these drawbacks, it gives them an excuse to haggle on price and see if you’ll accept a ‘cheeky offer’.

The key benefit of hiring a professional is that they can evaluate your home and really see it through the eyes of your potential buyers. A home stager will prioritise the work required, whilst spending the least time and money. Rarely will a Home Stager suggest you replace the kitchen, but they will advise that a few tweaks, updates and finishing off those ‘little jobs’ can make a big difference to that first impression.

The classic analogy for home staging is that you wouldn’t sell your car without cleaning it inside and out, fixing up dents or knocks, or dealing with the suspect smoke coming from the engine. Your house is your biggest asset and if you don’t do a little work upfront you could be throwing away tens of thousands of pounds or wasting weeks or months on the market unnecessarily. Remember, there may be a beautifullydesigned, brand new show home at the same price nearby, which your home is

Home staging can make a huge impact on both the price you sell for and how quickly you get a buyer. Even a small outlay can offer a potentially large return on investment.

HERE ARE SOME QUICK TIPS ON HOW TO STAGE YOUR OWN HOME FOR SALE 1. KERB APPEAL A freshly mown lawn, a driveway clear of leaves and some hanging baskets either side of the door can make a huge difference. Many house hunters will do a drive-by before even booking a viewing, so it pays to keep on top of the exterior, even if you don’t have any immediate viewings lined up. Make sure the windows are clean, the guttering is clear and give the front door and the fittings a polish. 2. MAKE AN ENTRANCE It’s true that people make up their minds on a house almost as soon as they enter, the hallway needs to be clear, bright and clutter-free and set the inviting tone for the rest of the house. Move coats and shoes out of sight, as well as prams and pushchairs, bikes etc 3. RUTHLESSLY DE-CLUTTER Clear all surfaces , including coffee tables, kitchen worktops, dining tables and then add items that are either essential in everyday use (eg your kettle) or attractive – vases of flowers, one or two ornaments. Streamline all the products in the bathroom, and keep only your prettier bottles and jars out on display. 4. DE-PERSONALISE Remove as many family photos from the walls as possible. Seeing pictures of the owners and their relations makes it hard for buyers to imagine the house as their own. (Hang mirrors or abstract art prints instead). 5. PROFFESIONALLY CLEANED Have the house professionally cleaned, and if at all possible, for photos and viewings, remove evidence of pets. Not everyone will love your dog or cat and it’s best that that potential buyers don’t have a sneezing fit during the viewing.

Dan Wilden Director Pure Town Planning What is this Community Infrastructure Levy all about?

How Do I Decorate my Studio Apartment? Q: “Besides getting rid of clutter and adding mirrors to expand the space, what else can someone do to decorate a studio apartment?” Sara

We’ve been getting an increasing number of queries about the ever confusing Community Infrastructure Levy (or CIL). So at risk of putting people off with this rather dry sounding subject, we’ll use our first in this series of columns to try and clear things up a bit. What is CIL?

A: Sara, there are really only three things that you need to make small space living stylish: Storage, Storage, and Storage! Let’s add a fourth to that: Style. You’re already on the right track with your comment about “no clutter.” I always strive to be sure that everything that comes into my house has a place to land: every piece of mail, every pair of shoes, everything has its proper home. So let’s start at the beginning. Nothing makes a small space look tinier than having many small pieces of furniture in it. Though it seems contradictory, you’re usually better served by having a few large, well-proportioned pieces instead. Real window treatments will quickly provide a room with some bravado. Layered lighting will give the space height and drama. Take a good look at what you have on your walls — decorative artwork is not always expensive and can certainly give your home a designer feeling.

CIL is effectively a locally-set tax on new development to raise money to be put towards local infrastructure projects - things like parks, transport, schools and health facilities. The Levy is introduced by the local Council who decide what projects they need to fund and who set the rates. Where it is introduced it replaces any pre-existing standard financial contributions towards these kinds of things. The one exception is that CIL cannot replace contributions towards affordable housing. Where is CIL charged? The only Council currently charging CIL in Dorset is Poole however Purbeck District are set to begin within the next three months. Other Councils will follow within the next year or so. A number of Hampshire Councils are charging already. How much is CIL? The all important question! Well it depends on what you are building and where. Like many Councils, Poole are only charging residential development, everything else being zerorated. CIL is calculated on the basis of the amount of floor space created by the development. In Poole there are three residential rates: £150 per square metre for the higher value areas such as Sandbanks, Canford Cliffs and Branksome Park, £100 per sqm for the town centre and £75 per sqm elsewhere. Dealing with CIL… Here are some top tips for minimising your CIL liability: In theory residential extensions over 100m2 are applicable for CIL, however fortunately the Government have just amended the regulations to create an exemption for people who are developing a new house or extension for themselves to live in (“self-builders”). But be careful! The regulations are quite strict and unless you go about things at the right time, in the right order and provide the required paperwork the exemption could be lost. Existing floor space on the site can be offset against the new build to reduce your CIL liability. However existing buildings can only be taken into account if they have been occupied continuously for a period of 6 months or more in the last three years.

Happy Decorating! www.oneinteriordesign.com

If you have any queries on how CIL might affect your proposals then do give me a call on 07984 804109 or email me: dan@puretownplanning.co.uk.

ROOM FOR PLAY

Children and a calm, stylish home don’t always go hand in hand. But you can create spaces to suit grown-ups and youngsters alike, as family lifestyle expert Ashlyn Gibson tells Gabrielle Fagan. If your home is feeling like a battleground after the school holidays, as you and your children fight for territory, it could be time for a new strategy. Before you consider moving or boarding schools - or simply resign yourself to chaos until they’ve flown the nest - there is another answer: creating rooms that suit your need for stylish spaces as well as theirs for play areas. “Children and decor aren’t generally regarded as a match made in heaven. Sticky fingers, the patter of tiny, muddy feet and an evergrowing collection of plastic toys can take their toll on rooms,” says Ashlyn Gibson, author of Creative Family Home; a blueprint for transforming a home that appeals equally to grown-ups and youngsters. All that’s needed, she believes, is a little imagination, a 108 dash of flair, and with your children’s help, a

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

Children's toys seem to have a life of their own, apparently cloning themselves over night so they constantly overflow storage boxes and invade every corner. Make stumbling over them a distant memory by providing child-friendly storage. "A home free of clutter will have a relaxed, calm vibe which the whole family will enjoy," says Gibson. "Portable storage, a box on castors or a vintage suitcase, is versatile and allows children to transport contents from room to room."

Tip: Have a clear-out of toys regularly but do it with your children - don't rush them, because choosing what to discard is all part of the process of growing up. Donate unwanted items to a charity shop or let them boost pocket money by selling at car boot sales.

ASK THE EXPERT Aimee Ramage Lettings Manager Burns Lettings

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

ASK THE EXPERT Bournecoast Property Agents Landlords : How Regularly Do you Carry Out Rent Reviews? AS A LANDLORD, do you think it more valuable to raise rent annually - in line with inflation – or keep hold of a good tenant, thereby saving yourself the time and effort of having to re-let the property every year? The UK rental market stabilised in April following successive periods of growth across the country with average advertised rents at £994 per month, according to the latest published data. Although the market is up 2.81% compared to a year ago, Scotland, the South East and the West Midlands were the only three regions that experienced an increase in average asking rents this month with figures reaching a record level in the South East, the Move with Us index shows (Source: PropertyWire). Simon Tebbutt, Business Development Manager at Bournecoast said, “Landlords should be feeling more positive about being able to raise their rent regularly but not to estrange their tenants. He gives an example of a landlady who chose to keep her existing tenant rather than take a new tenant who was prepared to pay an extra £120 a month. This was because she had a longstanding relationship with the current tenant who sent her Christmas and Easter cards every year. Simon said, “Looking at this from purely a business point of view, for the cost of a couple of cards a year, the tenant was saving an extra £1,440 per year, so it was worth her while sending the cards! “It’s important to remember that your tenant knows they are on a good deal and won’t want to rock the boat while they are,” he adds. “That said, if a landlord regularly deals with maintenance issues so that the tenant feels looked after, it will prevent them becoming despondent and leaving the property. There are ways of keeping your tenant happy, whilst still increasing their rent. “As in all businesses, the idea is to earn as much money as possible so it is our advice to conduct rent reviews every six months and increase the rents in line with average rent increases in the area.” For more information about how your property can work for you, contact the friendly and professional team at Bournecoast on 01202 437888 or visit:

In the current economic climate, choosing the right letting agent to look after your property has never been more important. Burns Lettings, established in 1971 are an ARLA Licensed Agent & pride themselves on doing things differently. In my opinion choose an ARLA registered or licensed Agent. As an ARLA Agent you have to adhere to a strict code of practice. The rental income gained from investment properties is crucial & therefore Landlords need to ensure that their agent is doing everything correctly to adhere with Legislation. We ensure our clients are constantly updated with not only current industry knowledge but years of experience which money can’t buy. Most importantly we ensure that we let properties to the RIGHT calibre tenants. Other Agents may purely focus on letting properties to the first tenant that shows interest and pays fees; however we at Burns are here to look after your investment from day one. And an ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) licensed agent is definitely the way forward. Every year, unlicensed Agents cause Britain’s Landlords & Tenants unnecessary stress and hassle – and sometimes loss of money – by giving incorrect or misleading advice, or offering poor customer service. When deciding to let your property this should be one of the most important considerations. By using an ARLA LICENSED Agent you are guaranteed: • The Agency is covered by the CLIENT MONEY PROTECTION (CMP) SCHEME • The Agency has Professional Indemnity Insurance • That you’ll be consulting with a qualified and trained agent who can give you professional up to date advice & guidance • That you are dealing with an agent who voluntarily follows the Code of Practice and Rules of Conduct laid down by their professional body • That you have a route to redress should something go wrong Whether you are an existing Landlord, looking for a new Managing Agent or perhaps looking to purchase your first investment property for professional advice please call Aimee today on 01202 55 33 35 or email: aimee@burnslettings.com

ASK THE EXPERT Evelyn Runde Director HD Inventories

Understanding Fair Wear and Tear

Tenants and Gardens! Our tenants are not looking after the garden. They have been living in the property for 12 months and we are presently looking to renew them, however, my husband has a meltdown every time we drive by the house and sees the state of the garden. Can we insist on the tenants keeping the garden up together? They pay their rent on time and look after the property, it’s just the garden. Over the years I have had many conversations with landlords on what is considered acceptable maintenance of a garden from a tenant and sometimes delicately pointing out that a couple of weeds are not something to get upset about.

If your tenants have a garden to themselves, it’s reasonable to expect them to maintain the garden. Or at the very least get someone else in if they aren’t keen on gardening. The minimum you should really be able to expect from any tenant living in your property is that it should be kept litter-free, reasonably tidy and not overgrown. If there are hedges they should be kept trimmed, especially if they are likely to encroach onto neighbour’s properties or public areas. Grass should also be cut regularly. However, if you have large trees that need pruning or cutting back every year, then this may be unrealistic to put the expense on to the tenant unless specifically spelt out prior to taking on the property and adding an extra clause to the tenancy, therefore it may be advisable to do this yourself or arrange for someone to do this at your expense. It is generally the experience from most landlords, that most tenants simply don’t like gardening and would rather be doing something else than attending to weeds or cutting the grass during the winter. Also, because tenancies can be short term, they see little point in attending the needs of a garden they may not be around to enjoy the following year. If the garden is particularly important to you, you could consider going down the route of hiring a gardener. You could look to negotiate this on the renewal terms by offering them the choice of adding the cost of the gardener by increasing their rent or they attend the garden themselves and keep the rent down. As you clearly say, they are looking after the property internally and paying their rent on time.

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.

One of the most common reasons for disagreement between landlords and tenants at the end of the tenancy is the different perception on Fair Wear and Tear. And here is the catch: There are no precise rules on what is ‘Fair Wear and Tear’. Generally speaking it can be defined as the ‘Reasonable use of the premises by the Tenant and the ordinary operation of natural forces’. However, this definition leaves ample room for interpretation and endless arguments. Instead, a much more practical approach is to examine how an Adjudicator would look at it when dealing with a claim. The Deposit Protection schemes offer some useful guidelines based on a number of factors: • Initial condition of the item: Was it new or used? If used, how old was it? What was the initial condition? • Expected life-span: A normal carpet may be expected to last for 6-8 years but expecting the same for a £15 kettle may not be reasonable. • Length of tenancy: A three-year tenancy is expected to carry a higher degree of wear and tear on all items than a six-month one. • Number and age of occupiers: The more occupants in a property the higher wear and tear that the property is expected to suffer. Likewise, a family with 2 children will be expected to cause more wear and tear than a single occupant. • Is it damage? Has the item been worn through normal use (i.e. carpet worn on high traffic areas)? Or has it been damaged through negligence? (i.e. a clearly visible iron burn on the same carpet). In all cases, when dealing with a dispute about damages to a property caused during a tenancy, the deposit protection schemes will always rely on the Inventory and Check-Out reports. The more thorough and professionally prepared these are, the better. Without these the adjudicator simply cannot assess the ‘before and after’ condition of the property and the claim will be rejected. 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.

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. 154

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 What is a heat pump? A heat pump is a more efficient way of heating your home. There are 2 different types; air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps. An air source heat pump looks similar to an air conditioning unit and is located on the outside of the property. It takes the latent heat from the ambient air to heat a refrigerant. This refrigerant is compressed which allows it to draw in further heat. This super heated refrigerant then passes over a heat exchanger which is where we get our useable energy for the central heating system. A ground source heat pump works in an identical way but takes its latent heat from within a borehole or from a row of trenches. A heat pump can be used as a complete replacement for a boiler giving you all you’re heating & hot water needs or it can be used alongside your existing boiler. Common perception is that heat pumps will only work with under floor heating however they can run very efficiently with a correctly sized radiator system. The biggest change you would notice is your radiators will no longer get as hot. By running the system for longer at lower temperatures it is more energy efficient helping to reduce your carbon footprint. With conventional boilers every kW of input provides approximately 0.95kW of heat. With a heat pump every kW of energy input can be converted up to 4.5kW of heat energy. This can make a heat pump up to 4.5 times as efficient as a gas or oil boiler which would be expressed as a Coefficient of Performance (COP) of 4.5. Heat pumps are powered from mains electricity and therefore if you were looking to lower your running cost further you could consider installing Solar PV (Electric) panels. By using the electricity that the panels produce you could effectively have free hot water during the summer months. There is a misconception that heat pumps are noisy, which is generally untrue. If you purchase a well recognised accredited brand and have it installed by an MCS approved installer the noise levels are around 48 decibels which in our experience is similar to a microwave.

Are there any financial incentives? In a couple of weeks the Government will be announcing the final details of the RHI scheme, which to those who aren’t aware is the Renewable Heat Incentive. This scheme is designed to give anyone who invests in installing a green technology a financial return on their investment. The payments are based on the amount of kWh per annum the property requires. For each kW produced you receive a nominated payment depending on the technology. This is calculated and repaid to you on a quarterly basis. These payments will continue for 7 years after your installation and should ensure that you receive a full return on your investment. This coupled with the savings made on your energy usage through the higher efficiency levels means that you will never be out of pocket. Why wouldn’t you install one?

The RHI scheme also covers other technologies including Solar Thermal, Biomass Boilers and Ground Source Heat Pumps. For further information on any of the above or if you would just like to discuss your future renewable energy options please contact Low Carbon Energy Centre on 01202 888561 or see our website:

REVIEW

REVIEWED HIGHCLIFF GRILL

We at House, would class ourselves as foodies, and if you do to, The Highcliff Grill simply cannot be missed! Merged with Bournemouth’s glorious Marriott Hotel, the Highcliff Grill is certainly in-keeping with everything that the Marriott brand stands for: going the extra mile, in order to exceed their guests expectations. Readers, don’t be misled under the assumption that this restaurant is merely another branch in their global tree: I almost cannot express enough, how fantastic this place is as a restaurant, (with its own personality and flare), in its own right. Residents of Bournemouth and Poole, make the Highcliff Grill the next place you go to dine, and I can assure you, you will be thoroughly thrilled. The restaurant embraces an updated art deco feel, with that recognisable Marriott elegance: Soft furnishing, glossy woods, high ceilings - very grand ballroom-esc! Onto the food… The H.C.G pride themselves on using only the best locally sourced produce, they truly believe in utilising the wonderful goods we have to offer here in Dorset, (completely unique to such a large chain). Little un-known fact: the restaurant is proud to support the ‘Futurefish’ programme, who ensure that the generations yet to come will be able to enjoy the same delicious fish we enjoy now. Not only a fine restaurant but teachers of fine food for our future generations. Compliments to the chef, who took on many roles to create our food: an artist, a scientist, a designer; our meal was nothing short of a masterpiece, every dish embraced a new kind of flavour combination, that tricked and tantalised our taste buds. First a little amuse-bouche! Celeriac Soup, Caraway Seeds, topped with Celeriac crisps, all served in a tall shot glass, (sip it slow, or shot it cold). The carefully crafted combination of the smooth soup, the caraway seeds, (adding an almost liquorish like flavour), and the crunchy texture of the crisps, was a testament to uniting science and food! Truly unique. The main, Pan Fried Halibut with Parsnip Puree, Bacon Jam, Leeks and a Sherry Vinegar…Magnificent! The fish, moist and perfectly flaky. The exceptional sweetness from the bacon jam, only made more addictive by the creaminess of the parsnip puree. Every aspect of this dish, was unquestionably wonderful. Finally the desert, one word: WOW. A warm, chocolate filled dark chocolate cake, with sweet pastry cream, cherry sorbet and a griottine truffle. If you now find yourself salivating, you are not alone! The comforting warmness of the gooey chocolate centre, lifted by the refreshing cherry sorbet would have been enough: but there was more teasing in-store! And the deceivingly dressed cherry on top, was an intense chocolate hit of griottine truffle. Though the food spoke for itself, all of the hard work that went into creating each dish would have been wasted without the help of our fabulous server: Lanji, (Be sure to ask if she is in). Lanji was not only friendly, but knew everything there was to know about each dish, and if she didn’t, she always asked the chef. When we, the general public, are spending our money on something that Is quickly consumed, we love to know why we are spending our money; with the help of lanji you can rest assure that what you are eating is more than worth it! Thank you to everyone at The Highcliff Grill, the intricacy of the food, the fantastic staff, everything you do, reflects your passion for great food and great customer service! We’ve just re-read this review and we’re already feeling a peckish, see you soon guys!

OUTDOOR LIVING

THE ANSWER TO THE PERFECT LAWN NAMGRASS, THE ARTIFICIAL GRASS BRAND Artificial grass has come a long way in recent years, gone are the days of products with a stiff abrasive pile, that would take the skin form your knuckles or knees at the slightest glance… artificial grass products at the higher end of the scale now offer multi toned, long soft fibres, and low level curled ‘thatch zones’ that not only give support, but give the products that all important authentic look and feel.

roof gardens, cladding for walls, display areas for shops, beer gardens in pubs etc… However replacing a back (and/or front) lawn is probably one of the biggest growth areas at this point, and why not, the benefits speak for themselves – No Mowing, No watering, No mud (if you have children and/or pets) and you have a neat green area all year round, that requires next to no maintenance at all.

Yet surprisingly, most people’s interpretation of artificial grass is still the ultra fake looking ‘butchers shop window’ product you used to see on the highstreet – you only have to mention the option of artificial grass to them, and you get a look of disbelief - Yet pull out a sample of some of the latest grass products on the market and you get a totally different reaction ‘wow, I didn’t realise how good artificial grass had become’. In most cases the customer only has to see a sample of a high quality product, and they are already convinced by the idea.

The recent threat of hose pipe bans has also triggered people into considering artificial grass, and although it is a fully synthetic product, there’s environmental argument too, with no requirement for watering, harmful pesticides/fertilisers and of course no need for the mower, be it electric or petrol. Count both these cost and environmental savings up over an expected lifespan of 15 – 20 years and im sure the artificial grass wins many times over…

SO WHERE DOES ARTIFICIAL GRASS GET USED? The honest answer to this at the moment is: where isn’t it getting used… This new wave of ultra realistic products on the market has opened up all 158 sorts of new avenues for artificial grass such as

SO WITH ALL THESE POSITIVES, ARE THERE ANY DISADVANTAGES? To supply and properly install a high quality artificial lawn, its is obviously going to cost more than relaying a natural lawn, but once again when you look at it over the long term, the artificial grass starts to make real sense. The only other negative factor may arise if you opt for a sub standard product (and

unfortunately there are an awful lot of them in the market place). As with any product in the UK, once a market is seen as being a ‘growing market’ everybody starts to jump on the band waggon, and before you know it artificial grass suppliers are popping up everywhere. Unfortunately it's not just a simple case of buying an expensive product to guarantee high quality, there are so many elements that make up a top quality product, such as the quality of the yarns used, the scrim/weave used as the basis for the product, the type of UV stabilization etc etc... only one of these elements needs to be of substandard quality, and this will result in issues further down the line. In a market that is flooded with products coming in from all over globe, it’s easy to get swamped by dozens of similar looking samples. However - narrow your search to a product produced in Europe to ISO 9001 standards (ensuring the best possible quality) and this will narrow your search considerably. Now you have your product, what is the best way to install it?? Once again, it's easy to get baffled by the different advise given here, but if we to assume a reasonably straight forward lawn replacement, like for like, the process is easy...


NEED TO KNOW Installing artificial grass is a simple process, but it goes without saying that some jobs are never quite as straight forward, problems can arise with access, soil conditions, or drainage issues - all these factors need to be considered when taking a job on, but it’s no different to pricing for any other type of landscape work - and just as with any other type of landscape work, the quality of the finish will be reflected in not only the quality of the ground work, but ultimately the quality and finish of the product used.

INTRODUCING OUR NEW RANGE FOR 2014 PERFECT FOR... LANDSCAPE GARDENING & LAWNS, EXHIBITIONS & INTERIORS, SCHOOLS & NURSERIES, MULTI SPORTS & GOLF...

GREEN ECLIPSE £26.99 per m2 A brand new product for 2014 featuring both a S and C shaped yarn for extreme resilience. Green Eclipse retains a very soft and natural feel. Other features including a dense, dual toned ‘thatchzone’ and a unique structure making this product uncompromised in all aspects.

GREEN ENIGMA £32.99 per m2

INSTALLATION • Strip off the grass (a good turf cutter makes easy work of this, an leaves a clean surface).

Engima is unrivalled in terms of its soft, dense luxurious feel, yet it boasts high resilience, thanks to the latest grass fibre technology, and its ‘diamond’ shaped yarn.…

• Edge the area where necessary, this can be a brick edge, metal edge (ever edge) or even timber. • Build the area back up to the necessary levels using a 5mm to dust aggregate (or similar) using a fine grade material enables the all-important job of taking out undulations etc... Is made easy. Compact this, and then work the area again to achieve your final level. • Install a getoex membrane, pin into position • Finally lay your artificial grass out, ensuring the pile is facing the desired direction; make sure the grass is sitting in the correct position before cutting it in using a Stanley knife. Once cut in, we would recommend a partial sand fill using a coarse grade, kilndried sand, this not only adds weight but also increases the longevity of any product.

GREEN MEADOW £23.99 per m2 Meadow now feels even more realistic as well as looking more authentic. The 32mm fine, long grass fibres allow Meadow to be more ‘open’, exposing more of the curled thatch, resulting in a deeper, natural look.

5 PLACES TO USE... ARTIFICIAL GRASS REPLACING YOUR NATURAL LAWN This is becoming an increasingly popular choice for many now, and why not, the artificial grass products of today have come a long way – make the right product choice, and install it correctly and your ‘fake lawn’ will be almost indistinguishable from the real thing, but with a fraction of the maintenance and upkeep, allowing you more time to enjoy your garden or concentrate on other jobs… The main element to consider here is product choice, with such a wide variety available, I would recommend narrowing your search to products produced in Europe, with ISO certification.

ROOF TERRACES AND BALCONIES

160

With more and more people living in apartments and flats, having your own ‘green space’ is becoming more difficult to come by. Just by simply adding some artificial grass to a balcony, roof terrace, or even covering an ugly roof you overlook, can completely transform the outlook of an apartment/flat. Elements to consider here are – drainage of the proposed area, will it require an underlay/drainage underlay, what is the existing surface, can you glue to this surface?


CHILDREN’S PLAY AREAS This is becoming an increasingly popular choice for many now, and why not, the artificial grass products of today have come a long way – make the right product choice, and install it correctly and your ‘fake lawn’ will be almost indistinguishable from the real thing, but with a fraction of the maintenance and upkeep, allowing you more time to enjoy your garden or concentrate on other jobs… The main element to consider here is product choice, with such a wide variety available, I would recommend narrowing your search to products produced in

ALTERNATIVE USES

PET AREAS/GARDENS

With artificial grass becoming increasingly popular, it appears to be getting used for a wider variety of applications, such as - artificial hedging/screening (pictured), it can be applied on top of old slippery decking as a quick but effective remedy to an increasingly popular problem. Sops and exhibitions are using artificial grass more and more for displays, being a relatively economic product that can be rolled out time and time again, I suppose its understandable… its even being used to clad buildings.

With the obvious advantages of artificial grass not staining (as long as it’s a high quality product), nor becoming muddy and messy, many pet owners are converting to artificial grass for their gardens, having been fed up with their patchy, muddy lawn. Once again here its important to choose a good durable product, and consider the drainage of the subbase, you want it a free draining as possible…

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

• • • • • • • • • •

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Healthy Lifestyle Tips by Mark Daley

Mark Daley has been the Health and Fitness Manager at the West Hants Club since 1999. He started his career in the Health and Fitness industry in 1980. In the early 90's he established the Christchurch Doctor Referral Scheme with local GP's which proved a huge success, allowing patients access to exercise and healthy lifestyle changes as a prescription. Mark has a vast knowledge of sports nutrition which can be adapted to weight management, as well as strength and fitness exercise programming for the beginner to the advanced athlete. He heads a team of health and fitness specialists at The West Hants who all have their own niche including Pilates, Strength and Conditioning, Meditation techniques, Neuro-Linguistic Programming to name just a few. Here are tips 1-5, see next issue for more.

1 2 3 4 5

Choose exercise that you know you can maintain consistently. Something you enjoy, that doesn’t feel like a chore. Consistency is the key to physical improvement. Likewise chose a healthy eating regime that you can maintain. There’s no point going on a diet with a view that once you’ve reached your goal weight you plan to revert to eating what you did before. Incorporate resistance training like weight training, bodyweight work (push ups etc.) into your weekly regime. It will make you stronger, leaner, increase your metabolism and make your bones denser. Stretch. As we age flexibility is the first physical conditioning factor to deteriorate. It’s important to undertake a stretching programme. Add a good quality Omega 3 supplement to your diet. Omega 3 fatty acids will help increase immune function decrease blood pressure, Y ONL blood viscosity and inflammation. Call for more information or to book your tour!

ASK THE EXPERTS Aspray Estate Agents in Ashley Cross

Is your price Right? As more properties come onto the sales and rental market ready for summer, we still seem to be seeing masses of the same properties sat on web portals not moving. Why? Because the price is wrong! – It’s as simple as that. There are so many agents at present flattering landlords and vendors with their valuations to get the business. However, once the property is on the market it doesn’t get a look in, there may be an initial rush but the next thing you know the agent is calling you up and asking you to reduce the price of the property, meaning that you have wasted valuable time in the most important stage of marketing. We have all heard the news that prices are going up, but property prices are like the weather — very different in different areas – that’s why price is paramount to the marketing of your property.

Some clients are disheartened when they hear that their property isn’t worth as much as they had hoped, and of course they would like to put their property on for more, whether or not this is against the advice they hear from an agent. At Aspray we’re happy to try “test prices” for a week or two to see how you property takes to the market, but we also give our clients good comparable evidence so we can justify the price which we have quoted and the reasoning behind it. Sometimes holding out for pound signs makes no sense at all. It is always good to be an educated seller, if you instruct a good agent, with local knowledge, previous comparables and who are committed to giving you honest, professional advice regardless of their own gain, then you will have a good starting point to sell or let fast!
