LOCAL ARTIST Since moving to Dorset in his teens Sean Curley has been constantly developing his fine art style and is now working from his home in Poole. Here he can be found most days working on his own studies and also a wide range of private commissions, also interspersing the day with his other passion of playing the guitar. Sean is an intentionally, self taught artist who from an early age, sought to develop his own unique painting style. Drawing inspiration from the surroundings in Dorset. From his garden in Poole to the harbours of West Bay and Weymouth, he can be found studying the smallest of flowers through to large landscapes. Further inspiration and variety is generated whilst abroad with most of his holiday photos destined for the studio rather than the photo album. After a tranquil day in the Studio the Curley world steps up a gear at night as Sean has a following around Dorset where he rocks the night away with various bands. You will find Sean’s paintings in many of UK’s finest galleries as well as at exhibitions held both solo and with other artists. Through his work a great deal of support is also contributed to many charities in both this country and Europe. www.seancurleyfineart.co.uk

A SAXOPHONE SOIREE AT LEWIS-MANNING Blessed with spectacular views across Poole Harbour from its location on Evening Hill at Sandbanks, Lewis-Manning Hospice will be opening up its Gardens to the public on Friday 18th July for an evening of live music hosted by a celebrity guest. The hospice will be taking the opportunity to officially introduce their newest Patron, local actress and comedienne Debra Stephenson at the ‘Sax in the Garden’ event. Debra is best known for her roles in Coronation Street, Bad Girls and The Impressions Show, as well as taking the title role in both Peter Pan and Jack and the Beanstalk at Lighthouse, Poole. Having built a strong relationship with Lewis-Manning since moving to the area a few years ago, Debra will continue her hard work and commitment to supporting the hospice in an official capacity, beginning this new journey through hosting the evening. Debra said, “I feel honoured to have been asked to become a Pa-

tron for Lewis-Manning Hospice. I’m proud to support the wonderful work they do to help local people with life-limiting illnesses. I was so impressed when I first visited the hospice and have been keen to be involved in fundraising events and to be a friend to the hospice in general.” Entertainment for the evening will be provided by local saxophonist, Chris Croft, who will be accompanied by Dave Carson on the guitar. The duo are part of local jazz band Revolution Club, who regularly play gigs all over Dorset. The evening starts at 7pm and tickets are priced at £25 per person, which includes a two course posh BBQ provided by the Dorchester based catering company Fish Face. Please bring your own drinks and glasses. All money raised will be used to support local people living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. For tickets, please call the Fundraising Office at Lewis-Manning Hospice on 01202 701000.

MARKET ANALYSIS

MARKET ANALYSIS Quarter 2 2014 (April - June)

SECOND QUARTER MARKET ANALYSIS We’ve reached 2014’s halfway point; the economy is buoyant and people are confident about the property market. Our optimistic forecast in our last market analysis (published April 2014) has been borne out. So now you pick up any national newspaper or switch on your television and you’ll hear constant mutterings about a housing bubble and when and by how much interest rates might change. But there’s something strange going on with these pundits. There seems to be some fundamental gaps in their analysis; there’s too much focus on what’s happening in London and the Home Counties, and a preoccupation with controlling housing demand with interest rates and mortgages. We’re struck that there are other significant factors that can be brought to bear on the property market and we feel it’s vital that there is awareness about the role that they do already, or may soon start to have. Here’s our view about the two core questions that are being asked and the analysis that should be included.

1. ARE WE IN A HOUSING BUBBLE?

Michael Riley is a Director of Capital and Coastal; a boutique estate agency selling and letting property between Poole and Lymington. He is a former Head of Residential Sales for Savills and Head of Operations for Romans in the Thames Valley. He regularly advises clients on the disposal and acquisition of property in prime Central London and on the South coast. Capital and Coastal monitor new instructions, withdrawals, price changes and the weekly sales of every estate agent between Poole and Lymington. Michael is also regularly asked by clients for his advice on the acquisition and sale of their properties in London and along the South coast.

For our previous market analysis visit: www.capitalandcoastal.co.uk To discuss any of the issues raised, the property market in general or your property in particular contact Michael Riley on 01202 217091

There seems little no doubt that the unprecedented rate of growth in London and parts of the South East over the last two years cannot be maintained. A harsher regime on foreign ownership, tax liabilities and a rise in interest rates are real prospects that could affect a price correction. But, talk about an imminent bursting of the bubble seems misguided. The reality is that London has always been seen, around the world, as a safe place to put your money at times of uncertainty, so without other ‘safer’ international property magnets the chances are that London will continue to attract investors to buy its housing. Our belief is that prices aren’t going to crash,

but it is likely that the rises will stop accelerating and could plateau. Naysayers take note, this is very different to a property ‘crash’. Whereas the debate becomes irrelevant for outside London and the South East where the market continues to be relatively fragile with no evidence yet of unsustainable price increases. Here along the Hampshire/ Dorset coast we have seen a significant upturn in activity, but it remains the case that unless homes are priced sensibly they are failing to sell. There is no ‘runaway’ pattern of price rises. And in areas of the Midlands and North there isn’t yet even the increase in property transactions.

2. HOW COULD THE MARKET BE CONTROLLED? In the main, the government leaves it to the Bank of England to come up with a fix by controlling interest rates. So, far they have avoided the ‘sledge hammer to crack a nut’ approach of raising rates but it’s likely to just be a matter of time before action is taken. Since April 2014, the government has forced more stringent rules to be in place for mortgage borrowers. Interest rates and mortgage control typifies the government’s misguided focus on controlling demand. The more major effect on the property market is the amount of supply. Currently, supply is limited as there are not enough houses being built for our growing population and changing living habits. House building schemes need more support from planning regulations and the tax scheme,

especially in areas with high demand, which will help to reduce upward pressure on the existing housing stock prices. But that is only part of the supply issue, as there are actually plenty of properties around, but they are not accessible to the people that need them. We have many individuals and businesses that own multiple properties for use as second homes, buy to let properties or that simply sit empty. This has the effect of reducing the number of houses for sale which forces up prices, with many would be homeowners forced to rent instead of buying. It’s important to recognise that these supply challenges could be effected by the government introducing a range of new interventions. These could include the following (see box on top right):

POSSIBLE INTERVENTIONS THAT THE GOVERNMENT MAY CONSIDER INTRODUCING: • Introduction of a regionalised stamp duty depending on local property performance, with higher rates payable in London and lower rates in less buoyant parts of the country. • Restriction in the Help to Buy scheme to outside the M25. • Abolishment of tax relief on interest payments paid on mortgages for buy to let properties. • Raising of stamp duty on properties that are not declared immediately as primary residence. • Introduction of a annual property tax on properties that are not a primary residence. • Abolishment of retrospective primary residence nomination for capital gains tax purposes. • Introduction of a period of capital gains tax amnesty for buy to let investors selling to a permanent resident rather than another investor.

SUMMARY As outlined here, the government has many more options to increase supply, as compared to just a few to reduce demand. But there’s little political appetite to explore these, or even get a public debate about them going. There’s an election looming and no-one is going to take action that will upset the voters. But, whilst government will inevitably delay making decisions until post May 2015 it seems increasingly likely that compared with the limited and blunt instrument of interest rates and mortgages that it’s only a matter of time before tackling supply moves higher up the agenda than many people may expect, or like.

Matt Annen Director Pure Town Planning

Problems with trees

Are you taking full advantage of current Permitted Development Rights?

We often have problems with trees in this area because of the number of very large pine trees. If your neighbour’s tree hangs over your boundary, you should ask the neighbour to cut it back to the boundary. If the neighbour does not do that, you have the right to trim the tree back to the boundary line yourself, but the branches and any fruit or flowers belong to the tree owner and have to be given back to that owner. If an over hanging branch is dangerous, the neighbour will be responsible for any injury caused by that danger. This would usually be either immediate physical danger, for example a branch falling onto someone, or danger of poisoning by leaves berries of flowers. Local Authorities have powers to deal with trees even if they are on private property where they can be shown to be about to cause damage. You can ask the Local Authority to make a tree safe which is on someone else’s land if your property is in imminent danger from it. You can also ask them to make a tree on your own land safe. The Local Authority can charge a fee for doing this. If they do not do the work themselves, they can serve a notice requiring the owner of the tree to make the tree safe. Please also remember that even where all these works are necessary for safety reasons, you may still have to obtain a consent from the planning authority if there is a Tree Preservation Order. The tree preservation orders are kept on a register at the local authority and you should always check there to find out whether there is a Tree Preservation Order on the particular tree before you do anything to it. Where a tree is dangerous it is likely that consent for the work to be done under the Tree Preservation Order rules will be granted. Tree roots can spread underneath your property from a neighbours land and damage its foundations or its drains leading to further possible structural damage or subsidence. The first step is to notify your property’s insurers. Your insurers may then pay out for the repairs and the works to be done. They would decide whether or not to try to recover the cost from the neighbour, because the neighbour is generally liable for damage caused by his trees.

There have been so many changes to permitted development rights over the last couple of years that it can be hard to keep track of them all. Developers would be wise to refresh themselves with the new rights introduced in May last year. Arguably the most significant of these permitted development rights is the potentially lucrative opportunity to secure a change of use of offices to residential dwellings. This permitted development right only applies until 30 May 2016 and crucially the change of use must have occurred before that date. The other limitations are that the building has to have been last in use for Use Class B1 (a) (offices) and is not a listed building or scheduled monument. The right is for change of use only and any physical works which change the external appearance of the building such as changes to windows or doors would need to be applied for in the usual way once the residential use has been confirmed. So far the take-up seems to have been relatively slow. Things are beginning to pick up as landowners spot the opportunities and perhaps leases come to an end. Earlier this year we reported that we secured Prior Approval consent for the largest office (B1) to residential (C3) permitted development consent in Bournemouth. That consent saw the transformation of a redundant 7-storey office building in the Lansdowne area into 191 residential studio units. Last week Pure Town Planning were successful on another large Prior Approval consent which saw the change of use of existing offices at first, second and third floors to 20 residential apartments (a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom flats) in a large building in Christchurch town centre. In this specific case there were clear financial advantages to using the permitted development right – for example a saving of almost £8,000 on the application fee, over £60,000 on payable contributions, as well as just short of £475,000 saved on affordable housing! potential solar panels to flat roof section

We consider that there must be many more opportunities to achieve a change of use which otherwise would not be allowed – for example in the countryside many barns have been converted into offices in locations where a dwelling wouldn’t usually be allowed. Time is running out on this opportunity so if you own an office building, PARKING that you wish to convert to residential dwellings, give us a call on 01202 585524 or email matt@puretownplanning.co.uk for a free no obligation planning consultation.

ASK THE EXPERT Chris Baker Planning 3D They say a picture speaks a thousand words – so what do your property photographs say about your home? When it comes to selling, first impressions count. Your property photos should reflect the true beauty of your home. It is the imagery presented on websites such as RightMove that impacts whether potential buyers click for a viewing or not. When you search properties, what kind of photos grab your attention first? An Architectural Photographer understands lighting, composition and exposure, which all affects how an image looks. Unfortunately not many estate agents are trained in these areas of expertise. For this reason alone it makes sense to use a professional.

Planning 3D can: • Make a preliminary visit to discuss your needs and any preparation that may be required for the shoot • Advise on angles and composition • Conduct a light analysis to determine the best time to take the photos • Use a variety of equipment to capture the best image of each room • Take photos at a time that suits you, for the agent of your choice At Planning 3D, we use professional standard lenses, cameras and lighting. In addition, we offer knowledge, experience and postprocessing techniques to capture more detail. This creates an atmospheric image, giving the property a real feel both on paper and on screen. Many agents have tight schedules and cannot allow for extended periods of time on site taking photos, but understanding the value of high quality architectural photographs is key. Planning 3D has both the time and expertise to present your property at its absolute best. In addition, all images are yours to keep and can be used again if you change agents. The above image was captured at sunset, with the use of atmospheric lighting techniques which are realistic and informative. If you would like more information on property visualisations or to view the range of services which include CGI’s, Virtual Tours, 360° Panoramics and Real Estate Photography, please contact Chris Baker.

INTERIORS

WINNING DECOR – RIO STYLE Take bold colour, flamboyance and exotic design, shake it up and you have a winning decor cocktail.

98

With the football World Cup in Brazil over, it’s hard not to be inspired by the wild spirit of the famous Rio Carnival and raise the temperature in your own home?

and inject pulsating pops of happyhued South American inspired colour into your decor, for an instant moodbrightening pick me up.”

“When we think of carnival, we think of the colour, energy and downright joie de vivre of Rio,” says Sarah Quilliam, head of product design for window blind specialists, Hillarys. “There is something about the vibrancy of it all which inspires happiness and excitement, so why not let go of your inhibitions, go ‘taupeless’ and bring the party to your home?

This jungle look is a natural development from the explorer trend; picture schemes featuring travellers’ trunks and accessories, and global influences which capitalise on our increasing love affair with colour.

“We recently surveyed over 1,000 people, and those who liked bold, bright colours were likely to be four times happier than those who preferred beige. People who liked red/pink, orange, yellow and blue/green were the happiest of all, so it would appear that if you want to create an upbeat, positive vibe in your home, de-beige

It’s been embraced by designers who’ve created dazzling patterns and prints with leaf motifs and exotic birds, which pair beautifully with natural materials like wood, bamboo and wicker, and will last well beyond the sporting tournament. Even if our hopes are dashed on the playing field, this bold palette will win compliments on the home front. So conjure memories of sunnier climes with carnival-like fabrics and fruitsalad shades...

TOP TIP If you want to make an investment in pink - and a statement - opt for a piece of furniture


INTERIORS

ORANGE SCORES Orange is reminiscent of glowing, tropical sunsets and this vibrant, citrus hue can enliven a room. “Hot orange packs a nice punch and it pairs well with warm, white oak floors. Use wallpaper or paint for an accent wall in an otherwise light and neutral space,” says Constable. “Intense orange walls can be a bit too bright for some. You may want a more relaxed vibe, so smaller doses of the colour - via linens or curtains - work well.” Curtains, throws and cushions in patterned, dusty orange fabrics, teamed with browns, will easily bring an exotic, faraway feel to a space, and Hillarys Enigma Sunset patterned blinds, from its pleated collection, which cost from £161, are bang on trend. Even more exotic are Carlucci Fractions fabrics; Oasis, Nomade and Desert, from £96.90 per sqm, JAB Anstoetz.

TOP TIP Use carefully chosen pieces to bring warmth to a north-facing bedroom

HOMEBASE

PINK KICKS Pink is synonymous with partying, fun and frivolity, and adding this sizzling shade to a decor scheme will ratchet up the ‘look at me’ factor. Bold colour lovers could combine it with orange. “If your home is overdue for a makeover, consider injecting hot colour as a way to shake things up. Pick hues you love, which you’ll be comfortable keeping for a good long time,” says Mike Constable,

managing director of JAB International Furnishings. “If you love hot pink but can’t see it splashed all over your own walls, consider painting an interesting piece of furniture or add a tablecloth in the kitchen. Gorgeous pink cushions scattered on garden furniture will heat up an outdoor space.” 99

How Do I Choose a Dining Table? Q: “How do I choose a dining table?” Mrs Lovett Mrs Lovett, in a modern home, the old standby “the dining table” commonly serves more purposes than just hosting a dinner party every now and then, so, before I answer your question, I have some questions for you. 1. Are there other dining locations in your house? Is there a table in the kitchen too? 2. Does your table need to serve multiple uses? Does it double up as a desk? 3. Are you “The Hostess?” Entertaining friends or family? Are you the ‘go-to’ hostess? The first place to start is to consider the shape and size of your dining room. Is it long and narrow or square? Does it feel like a rectangle table will fit better or could the table be round? I personally love round dining tables because of the seating flexibility they offer, but, a rectangular table is always a classic, too. And, speaking of seating, as you begin to consider size, keep in mind that you need at least 120cm of “chair space” along each side of the table.

Professional Inventories will save you money Landlords in the UK are losing a staggering amount of money through deposit disputes because of inadequate property inventories. According to the figures published by mydeposits. co.uk only 8% of disputes get awarded in full to the landlord. It is easy to understand why. As mydeposits.co.uk points out: “The law starts with the principle that the money is the tenant’s. It’s up to the landlord to justify withholding all or part of a deposit.” Should a dispute between landlord and tenant arise at the end of the tenancy, this will have to be evaluated by one of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services from one of the authorised Deposit Protection Services. At that point landlords realise, to their surprise, that the level of evidence required by the adjudicator far exceeds the evidence provided by an old-fashioned inventory. Even when pictures are provided, the chances of covering every single area of a property with photographs are very low. In the past landlords and letting agents could rely on basic property inventories as the tenant was always in a weaker position. Sometimes these inventories could be just 3 or 4 pages with few pictures at the back. Nowadays the tenancy deposit rules have completely changed the playing field. Increasingly, landlords and letting agents are turning to professionally produced property video inventories. To be effective video inventories need to be filmed professionally, ensuring that all areas are covered in a systematic manner by a properly trained and qualified independent video inventory clerk. A good video inventory will be as far from a home video as one can imagine. Video inventories can also prevent issues arising in the first place and should these occur, it will provide the strong evidence required to prove the landlord’s case and to ensure that the property is returned in a condition which is consistent with its state at the beginning of the tenancy.

ASK THE EXPERT ASK THE EXPERT Jeremy Clarke Belvoir Lettings Could 2015 see the rise of ‘Buy to Let’ pensioners? With the recent unlocking of rules on how people can access their savings in retirement, could a new breed of ‘buy to let pensioners’ be ready to enter the local property market? Nationwide property lettings specialist, Belvoir, is advising caution in the wake of the Budget announcement that savers will be allowed to withdraw their entire pension fund from the age of 55 or over, rather than take the money slowly as an annuity. “Since the last Budget many financial commentators have speculated that following the new rules – due to come into effect from April 2015 – pension savers could draw down some or all of their money to invest in options such as buy to let property,” says Jeremy Clarke who owns the Belvoir office in Christchurch. “With recent surveys reporting that buy to let has outperformed all other mainstream investments over the past 18 years, this could be an extremely attractive option for anyone wanting to safeguard their capital and maximise their income in retirement. “Whilst this may be true, we believe that anyone considering their first move into the sector should take expert advice. “Buy to let continues to offer great opportunities, but potential investors must have a clear strategy, and it should never be considered as a ‘get rich quick’ scheme.” This year marks the 18th anniversary of the buy to let mortgage initiative launched by the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA). Tracker studies indicate that since its introduction, buy to let investment has provided an average return of 16.3 per cent – considerably more than most other asset classes. Over a third of Britain’s 1.4 million private landlords already view their buy to let portfolio as the main component within their pension plan – with the relative ‘safety’ of bricks and mortar investment coupled with regular rental returns as income, making it an attractive investment choice. Dorian Gonsalves, Commercial Director for Belvoir, comments: “The recent pension reforms have ignited a great deal of interest in buy to let as a viable & attractive alternative to more traditional pension plans. “Market demand for quality, well maintained, private rental property remains high and even before the recent Budget announcement our offices throughout the UK were experiencing a growing number of enquiries from people seeking advice and guidance on how to enter this sector for the first time.” Some industry commentators are predicting returns of around 11 per cent per year over the next decade and a number of specialist, buy to let lenders have also started to reconsider current age restrictions to allow people up to age 70 to apply for long term buy to let mortgages – subject to them meeting certain criteria. We are happy to offer a free initial – no obligation – consultation to anyone wanting to learn more about how to become a successful property investor. And for those who do decide to invest their pension funds into property we can provide a full range of management and other services to ensure their new alternative pension investment is a trouble free one.

How do you ensure your Agency selects the right tenants for you? With the Lettings Market in Bournemouth booming there is a massive demand for good quality rental properties in all areas for waiting tenants. However in London the market is at the opposite end of the spectrum with the market saturated with empty properties and very few prospective tenants. As a Landlord you need assurances that the quality of tenant will be the same regardless of level of service your Agent is providing. The way in which Agents approach the task of letting your property is one of the most vitally important aspects of the lettings process. Our Lettings Team are focused on securing the right calibre tenants for your property & not simply letting the property to the first person who walks through the door. We understand that your investment property is more than likely one of the biggest assets you own. Therefore when letting your property you need an Agent who will consider not only achieving the best rental income & tenancy term – but finding the most suitable tenant for your property. Our Negotiation team spend a great deal of time registering our applicants & getting to know them so we can find them their dream property. Our applicants rely on us to secure them properties which match their exact requirements and they rest assured that we won’t waste their time with unsuitable properties. With our proactive approach we call our applicants as soon as we are instructed on a new property to ensure that they get to see it before it even hits rightmove. We find this builds trust and rapport with our clients from day one. But most importantly you as a Landlord need to know that when an Agent is showing around prospective tenants that they have all the relevant information to hand should they wish to proceed. It’s all very well advising a Landlord that you have a client who wishes to rent your property. However does your client earn enough to go through necessary referencing? Do they have any adverse credit history? Do they have a pet? Are they looking for a short term contract whereas you need someone to be in the property for at least 12 months? Whether you are an existing Landlord, 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

Is your tenant hiding something? I was recently shocked to discover some of the lengths tenants will go

ASK THE EXPERT

to find a property to rent.

Bournecoast Property Agents Five top tips for novice landlords

On my Facebook page I was recently invited to a discussion group and asked if I could help someone find a property to rent. This particular

Buy-to-let is often perceived as an attractive investment for those looking to avoid the volatility of the stock market. However, becoming a landlord isn’t always as easy as it seems. We offer this simple fivepoint guide to becoming a landlord for the first time:

person was a working single mum, with one child, a guarantor and a cat. The reason they asked if I could help was because she was struggling to find a property that would accept the cat. She had attempted to go for a couple of properties that indicated in the advert they would accept a

1. Location is the most important factor. It may come as a surprise to many of you that sometimes the most sought after post codes don’t always offer the best returns. With this in mind, researching the area is the first and most important thing you can do before purchasing a buy-to-let property.

pet, but was let down because the landlords had a choice of applicants and decided to go with the applicant who did not have a pet. This in itself did not surprise me as landlords presently do have a pick of tenants, what did was the advice she then received from her

2. Do your homework on suitable mortgage products. Thankfully, lenders are now offering a real variety of buy-to-let products in an attempt to take advantage of Britain’s booming rental market. However, it’s important to shop around as the lenders have become increasingly interested in this section of the market, causing fees to rise.

friends. A few said ‘don’t let them know you have a pet, the landlord never checks anyway’, ‘I never tell them I have a dog, and I have been doing it for years’, ‘definitely lie about it, it is the only way you will get a property’ and someone even gave the following advice ‘if you need payslips to show you are on more money, you can go to a website and they will give you payslips for the last 3 months from top companies’.

3. Make sure you are properly insured. Landlord insurance is widely available and crucial to covering your investment. Firstly, all landlord insurance should cover third party liability, ensuring any damage caused to the property by the tenants is covered. Unfortunately, basic landlord insurance will not cover you if your tenants do not pay their rent. Rental guarantee cover can be bought as an add-on to your policy.

I did reply stating you should never lie, and any reputable agency or good landlord will find out in the end. This indeed happened very recently at Move On, when we had to ask a tenant to leave who had smuggled two cats into a non pet block (as per the terms of the lease). We discovered the pets at our first inspection (which fortunately we do after the first month and not 3 months in).

4. Managing your property (and your tenants). There are two options open to you when it comes to managing your buy-to-let property: pay a management company to do it for you, or do it yourself. Opting to go it alone means you save on management fees, have greater control over tenants and if you are local to the property, can visit regularly. However, self managing your investment does mean that you are the direct point of contact for your tenants and have to oversee all aspects of maintenance yourself; often difficult when you have a busy lifestyle. If all this sounds like it might be too much hassle, you should have your property externally managed. Any reputable lettings agent should offer this service, taking over the day-to-day running of your buy-to-let. This will allow you to have more free time, as they use their industry contacts to organise any maintenance, appropriate tenants and collect rent.

The tenant in question did not want to be parted from her pets and therefore moved out. She wasn’t happy as she had to then pay out for removal costs again. However, the advert was very specific that it was a non pet block. So I ask you, is your letting agent doing their property visits? If you are a private landlord when was the last time you checked inside the property? And my next question, do you check the references? Do you check with the employer that the payslips are correct? If the advice this person received via Facebook is deemed normal in the ‘tenants’ world’, then diligence is needed. We are in the phase of ‘generation renters’ as many people struggle to get onto the property ladder. And if a tenant can lie about one thing, what else will or were they hiding? I appreciate this is hopefully a small number of people and I am certainly not tarnishing all with the same brush, but it is good

to know these things.

5. Finally, you need to choose the right tenants. Finding the right tenants is all about matching the tenant to the property. For example, a young professional couple will not be looking for a five bedroom detached house, but they may be interested in a welllocated modern apartment. Consider location, cost and size when deciding which tenants are right for you. If you are considering a buy-to-let property as an investment option the recommendation is to work closely with a local buy-to-let specialist agency, who will be able to guide you on which property to invest in, what the expected rental returns will be and what yield you can expect.

INTRODUCING THE BLADE THE FUTURE’S BRIGHT Designed and manufactured in house by our very own Mr Nick Bainton using locally sourced materials, ‘The Blade’ is a high powered, edge lit acrylic bollard with an elegant Sail shape design, set into a slick polished stainless steel spine. The Bespoke linear Light source has been set at the back of the spine so that all light is emitted through the front radiused edge, making it perfect for driveways, patios and decking areas. The clear acrylic allows you to see straight through the light source giving a truly stunning effect. The Blade’ is available in a multitude of single colour and colour changing options, all IP67 rated. Optional ground spike is also available for soft ground applications. Other shapes available on request. The Blades photographed are 900mm tall. 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.

DIY EXPERT

UP FRONT

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

THIS WEEK: MAKING THE FRONT OF YOUR HOUSE MORE ATTRACTIVE If you are thinking of selling and want to make a good first impression, or you simply want to improve ‘kerb appeal’ for your own pride, then making the front of your house more attractive is an obvious step to take. The basics are pretty selfexplanatory - have a good tidy-up, give tired woodwork a lick of paint and do any necessary repairs, especially to the walls, roof, windows and front door. The other area to focus on is the front garden, which can make an enormous difference to the overall appearance and appeal of your home. This time of year is ideal for brightening up the garden, using window boxes, hanging baskets, troughs and tubs planted with colourful bedding plants. To define the entrance, especially if there could be confusion about which door is the front door, strategically place topiary bushes or tall shrubs in nice

pots to guide people to the right door. Hedges provide privacy if your home is close to the pavement, but can make the front room dark, so be careful to strike the right balance. If you don’t want the hassle of maintaining a front lawn, or you don’t have room for one, stick to lowmaintenance options like gravel, pebbles or slate chips, all of which can be used to quickly cover eyesores like concrete and crazy paving. A more expensive, but elegant, option is block paving, paving slabs, or slate or (frostresistant) ceramic tiles, which are easy to maintain because they can be hosed down. Mix in some flowerbeds and you should have a smart, easy-tomaintain front garden that’s the best of both worlds. In some locations, especially urban ones where parking is expensive or in short supply, off-street parking in your front garden can be a valuable addition to your home. That

said, creating off-street parking won’t necessarily be cheap, and you may need planning permission - go to www.planningportal.gov. uk for general advice, and also check with the local council before going ahead in case your proposal is an exception to the rules. In some cases, you’ll need planning for both the parking and a dropped kerb (if you don’t already have one), which are separate applications and usually dealt with by different council departments. Often, the council will only tell you how much it will charge to drop the kerb once the planning for the off-street parking has been approved, so, as you can imagine, it can be quite a lengthy process. Also, while off-street parking often adds value, it isn’t very environmentally friendly. Plants have lots of benefits, including encouraging wildlife, and natural surfaces like grass

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK ILLUMINA JUG BLENDER The new Illumina Jug Blender (£69.99, uk.russellhobbs.com) from Russell Hobbs is designed to make blending easy, thanks to an innovative light ring around the base that changes colour when you change speed. The blue light is for purees, pink for smoothies, green for soups, and red is the pulse mode, ideal for crushing ice, so it couldn’t be easier to see what you’re doing. The blender’s titanium-coated twotip blades are four times harder than uncoated stainless-steel ones, and create a vortex to blend in the most effective way. 134

and soil allow water to drain away quickly, helping to prevent flooding. At the very least, choose a permeable hard surface for your front garden. Using a permeable surface, such as gravel, permeable block paving, or porous asphalt, may, in any case, exempt you from having to apply for planning for off-street parking.

Whatever you go for, your front garden should be in keeping with your home’s exterior - an ultramodern design probably won’t suit a country cottage, for example. It should also suit your lifestyle, as you don’t want a garden that requires more time and energy than you can devote to it, however good it looks.

HOW-TO TIP THE PROBLEM WITH TUBES OF FILLER IS THAT IT AFTER A WHILE, IT BECOMES HARD TO GET THE FILLER OUT.

You don’t get this problem with a cartridge, because the cartridge gun - like the PC Cox Easiflow Gun (£5.49, Screwfix) - enables you to get every last bit of filler out: no time or filler wasted.

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.

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 136 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 EXPERT Buying a new house, building a new house, renovating an old house, how are you going to heat it? Solar Hot Water. Read on...(you might find it interesting!) What is Solar Thermal and how does it work? Solar thermal is a way of heating hot water. The solar thermal system will consist of a panel or sometimes two positioned on your roof, a hot water cylinder and enough pipe work to connect the two together. There are two types of panels, evacuated tubes and flat panels. Solar thermal panels absorb solar energy from the sun, not just direct sunlight, and will even produce warm water when the weather is overcast! A liquid medium is heated by the collectors and pumped round a closed system between the panel and the heat exchanging coil in a cylinder. Provided the temperature at the panel is greater than the temperature in the cylinder, then the electronic solar controller will circulate the fluid, thus transferring the heat. The greater the differential in temperature, the faster the fluid is circulated. Having transferred heat to the cylinder, the cooler liquid is then returned to the solar panel to restart the cycle. A boiler or other renewable heating system is generally also connected to the hot water cylinder to provide any back up heat if required.

Why should I consider Solar Thermal? Solar thermal panels can produce hot water all year round but as solar radiation is greater in the summer months, like all solar panels they will produce approximately 30% of their output during the winter months and 70% during the summer. Even if the panels only pre-heat the domestic hot water cylinder in the winter, much less energy will be used by the boiler to bring the water up to temperature. It is likely that you will be able to turn off any back up heat source between the months of May to September. Solar thermal panels are designed to provide 50 – 70% of your homes annual domestic hot water demand or up to 15% of your homes heating needs. By installing solar panels it is estimated that carbon dioxide emissions of a property can be reduced by around 400kg per year. Not only will you be helping with reducing carbon emissions you will also be saving money. Saving money is ordinarily on most people’s agenda and with the introduction of the Governments Renewable Heat Incentive in April you are currently guaranteed a 7 year tariff on this type of installation. With an initial payment of 19.2 pence for every kilowatt of heat produced by the panels and the continued saving made on ever increasing fuel costs it could be the most sensible decision you could make! Your average solar thermal system will cost in the region of £3,500 to 5,500, this will depend on the need for a new cylinder. A site survey will determine your exact requirements and Low Carbon can provide you with a no obligation quotation. So, who wants to lower their carbon footprint and their energy bills and get paid for doing it? Too good to be true, give us a call on 01202 888561 or visit the showroom at and learn more about how you can get involved.

PICK OF THE BUNCH A gorgeous bouquet of blooms in a vase, lovingly placed on the kitchen table or windowsill, has to be the simplest way to instantly bring colour and warmth into a room.

TOP TIP Save pennies by collecting & reusing old glass bottles. Or, for an extra splash of colour.

But, while flowers don’t need much help looking wonderful, getting creative with your floral displays can add a whole new dimension to the natural wonders. Stylists Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring certainly think so. Though not trained floral designers, they “love to play and experiment” with flowers and are blooming with ideas for fun and interesting arrangements, which they’re sharing in their new book, Decorate With Flowers: Creative Ideas For Flowers And Containers Around The Home. It contains a hearty bunch of suggestions for use with flowers which the authors promise are “budgetfriendly and easy to find”, as well as ways to choose, make or jazz-up containers. Here’s a sneaky peak at some of the highlights, along with my 144 suggestions for petal power buys...

BOTTLE CHANDELIER A bottle chandelier can be made out of a wire loop, heavy-gauge florist wire, lighter-gauge florist wire, and vintage or interesting small glass bottles, suggest Becker and Shewring. You will need to hang it securely from the ceiling with a hook. Use light wire to wrap around the necks of the bottles - this only works if there is a rim to hold the wire below it, then attach the other end of the wire to the loop frame. Attach bottles at varying lengths and space them evenly around the wire loop for balance. Use as little water as possible in the bottles and pop a flower or two in each one. A cluster of small bottles could also be tied to the back of a chair, using light-gauge florist wire. Add blooms and ribbons for more pizzazz.


INTERIORS

A SIMPLE WREATH Create a wreath using heaviergauge floral wire to form a circle. Make a series of small bouquets or bunches out of greenery, wrapping the stems of each bouquet together with floral tape. The authors advise; start at the top of the circle and attach the first bouquet to the wire form with more floral tape. Then work down one side, overlapping the next bouquet to cover the wrapped stems of the one before. When you get towards the bottom, add a couple of focal flowers to your bouquets. Once you reach the bottom of the circle, start at the top and work down the other side. If needed, fill in any holes by adding a bloom or two using wire.

HOMEBASE

TOP TIP All out of blooms? No problem - a fake bunch can do the job. BHS has some purse-friendly picks

CAN-DO BUNCH Flowers displayed in unusual containers always win compliments. Visit an Asian grocery store, suggest Becker and Shewring, for a little market style and look for canned fruits and teas, since they often have delightful colour and pattern-filled containers, which make great vases.

Empty the contents and then pop in a small glass inside to avoid rust or leaks. Arrange smaller bouquets in shorter cylindrical vessels, like tins, by applying a looser dome-like effect. Keep focal flowers higher and gradually add filler flowers, with the lowest blooms resting their heads on the rim. 145

REVIEWED

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

THE KINGS ARMS REVIEW The Kings Hotel Christchurch, 18 Castle Street, Christchurch, Dorset BH23 1DT The King’s Arms in Christchurch is a restaurant which has firmly become a favourite of ours at House Magazine. Situated around the bend from the main high street, this boutique hotel boasts a picturesque view comprising the pavilion, Christchurch Priory and castle ruins, and it guarantees an enjoyable evening to any visitors. We’re always greeted with a warm welcome, where Lucas and his team strive to ensure we have the best of evenings when we visit, and the chefs ensure we always have the finest meals. Whatever the occasion, there’s always an intimate, friendly atmosphere to The King’s, and it’s this that keeps us returning. Running alongside the a la carte menu and the 15-mile menu, The King’s have introduced a new menu into the mix to ensure you have a reason to visit any day of the week. If you can’t wait for Friday Fizz and Chips, or you missed the Wednesday Josper Grill Night, now Thursdays bring you Burger and Lobster Night! This offers, as the name suggests, a range of tasty burgers or grilled lobster to those fancying a treat with a touch of class on a Thursday evening. With a range of burgers on offer, with options and specials changing regularly, we were spoiled for choice and ended up ordering three between the two of us. Despite this, it was still a difficult decision to choose commiserations to the Battered Hake Burger with homemade tartare sauce; we’ll try you next Thursday! In the end, we opted for the King’s Burger – sumptuous prime aged beef topped with bacon, cheese, relish and sweet caramelised onions to create a wonderful, albeit messy, stack of complementing flavours. Alongside this we had the spicy chicken burger – a juicy chicken breast cooked in an Indianstyle lime marinade, with a mint and cucumber dressing. We added a half lobster grilled with garlic butter as a counterpoint, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. It’s great to see a restaurant offering a diverse and regularlychanging range of menus to choose from, and The King’s is miles ahead of the competition. We’ve mentioned the 15-Mile menu before, which uses Dorset and New Forest produce to create an affordable menu that doesn’t skip on quality. There’s also Supper Club, the fun and hugely popular evenings that meet every month over three courses with accompanying wine. But sometimes you just fancy a burger. Or lobster. Or both...

ASK THE EXPERT Tony Peters Planit Mortgages Your local mortgage adviser The great interest rate conundrum. If there is one question I get asked more than any other it’s: “What do you think will happen with interest rates? followed by: “When will they go up? And by how much?” “I am not an economist so I am not in a position to speculate.” is the sensible answer. However, I have an opinion and I will give it if pushed. My opinion is that the central bankers have dug a very big hole and stranded us all in it like a deep well with slippery, vertical sides. We have all contributed to this big hole by borrowing ever increasing sums to buy properties of ever increasing values and goods using cheap, easy to obtain credit. It often is described as a ‘mountain’ of debt but I would say a hole is more apt. This hole is so large that no matter how much we pour into it, it will never be filled. Interest rates determine how fast we pour and if it doesn’t make a difference, why raise them?

It’s not just any home, it’s your home.

I have to stress that this is my opinion, although it is based on my experience of mortgages and debt. I believe that interest rates will remain lower than anyone expects them to and for a great deal longer too, in a similar fashion to that of Japan from the early 1990’s to the present day in fact.

We understand how important your home is you. That’s

You may be asking: what is my reasoning for this opinion?

why we offer great value home insurance you can rely on,

Since interest rates fell and many people’s mortgages with them, you would think that a lot of that debt would have been repaid and that the hole was being filled. And it would have been the sensible and obvious choice. Unfortunately, that gap was filled by a huge increase in energy costs which raised prices for our gas, electricity, transport, clothing and food amongst other things, quite significantly.

which is designed for your needs. If something goes wrong you’ve got the peace of mind that your home is covered with a low standard excess and with ‘new for old’ cover. There’s also the option to pay by monthly instalments at no extra cost (0% APR representative). The Age UK Group offers a range of products and services tailor-made for the over 50s including: Car Insurance, Travel Insurance, Gas & Electricity, Personal Alarms etc.

Your local Age UK Age UK Bournemouth promotes and develops services to enable older people to maintain both physical and mental well being.

Those who saw their rates fall were the lucky ones. Other mortgage holders are stuck on lender’s Standard Variable Rates (SVR) because of poor credit or their Loan to Value (LTV) is too high for any other lender to take on. Add to that the increase in fuel and associated costs and they have NO MONEY whatsoever to be able to pay increased mortgage costs. The BoE know this and despite all the promises to the markets via “forward guidance” that there will be a rate increase, I just can not see it happening. They do not want to see mass evictions especially after they managed to prevent this during the Great Financial Crisis (GFC) Now, none of this means I am right. I could be so far wide of the mark that I make the England football team look like world beaters. Many think I am wrong and that rates will rise and rise soon. If you believe them then I suggest you get a long-term fixed rate before they jump up. You can still get 5 year rates around 3% - 4% so get in now before it’s too late. If you think I’m right, don’t worry. If you’re not so sure, give us a call and we will fix your rate for you or visit our website and comment on our blog. All opinions are welcome.

MOTORING

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

HAYFEVER DRUGS WARNING A survey by safety group Brake, and Direct Line, has found an alarming level of ignorance and complacency about the dangerous effects of many prescription and over-the-counter medications on driving, as one in six (17%) admit either ignoring warnings not to drive or not checking the label at all. The findings come as the pollen count starts to soar at the start of the hayfever season, and hayfever medication is one of the most common drugs that can impair driving. Many prescription and overthe-counter medications can impair ability to drive safely, by causing drowsiness or affecting reaction times, coordination, concentration or vision. These include some hayfever medications, painkillers, antibiotics and cough and cold medicines. Brake and Direct Line’s survey also found: Almost half (44%) of drivers who use hayfever medication admit sometimes or never checking the instructions to see if it will affect their driving ability. Three in 10 (30%) drivers are unaware some hayfever and allergy medications can impair your ability to drive. Lack of awareness is higher among men (39%) than women (23%). Awareness is even lower for many other medications, including decongestants (47%) and cough medicines (60%). Brake is urging all drivers to always check the label on their medication, and not to drive if it says your driving could be affected - if unsure, consult your doctor or pharmacist, and always err on the side of caution.

SEAT LEON X-PERIENCE The new SEAT Leon X-PERIENCE offers permanent four-wheel drive and allroad equipment, and is powered by a 2.0 litre diesel engine with outputs of 148 and 182 hp. The company describes it as “the perfect companion for a varied and active lifestyle.” It boasts all-road suspension with extra ground clearance. A distinctive off-road look and individual interior offer an added dimension, together with a wide array of latest technologies. These include a four-wheel EDS dynamic control system (electronic differential locks on both axles), an extended electronic differential lock for better traction while cornering, an electronic stability programme and a multi-collision brake system delivering maximum safety.

“On tarmac or gravel, in sun, rain or snow – with its all-wheel drive, the Leon X-PERIENCE takes it all in its stride, demonstrating its superb dynamics on all types of road with absolutely no negative impact on either comfort or usability. Emotional driving fun and exceptional usability – this is where the customer finds both,” says Dr. Matthias Rabe, Vice-President for Research and Development at SEAT. The luggage compartment offers a carrying capacity of 587 litres, which extends to 1,470 litres with the rearseats folded down.

The top engine is the 2.0 TDI with 182 hp. With DSG transmission as standard, it delivers a 0-60mph of 7.1 seconds and top speed of 139mph. Combined fuel figure is 55.4mpg and CO2 emissions are 133 g/km The 2.0 TDI with 148hp returns 57.6 mpg and 126g/km. In normal operation, the clutch transmits most of the engine power to the front wheels. Should their traction decrease, the torque is diverted to the rear. The Leon X-PERIENCE is available to order from September and will reach UK showrooms later in the year.

Further optional hi-tech features include full-LED headlights, Adaptive Cruise Control with City Emergency Brake function, drowsiness detection and lane-keeping assistant.

ROAD TEST - MAZDA3 The Mazda3 has dual appeal, attracting both private and business buyers impressed with its keen pricing, generous equipment levels and assured driving dynamics, writes NICK FLETCHER. The car competes in a tough sector with more mainstream rivals such as Ford, Vauxhall, Volkswagen and Peugeot all having contenders worthy of attention. Yet the Mazda3 can hold its own in the class, thanks to its overall value for money package and its dependability record. The range starts at £16,695 and entry level SE models get 16-inch alloys, air-conditioning, Bluetooth, USB sockets and useful standard features such as steering wheel-mounted audio controls, and for many drivers this model will offer all that they need. SE-L versions add dual-zone climate control, automatic xenon headlights, rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors among extra kit, while rangetopping Sport Nav models add a wealth of other features including sat-nav, front parking sensors and keyless entry. This top version, in 2.2 litre 148 hp diesel form and priced at £22,145 was my recent test model, which also had auto transmission, a £1,200 option.

Top speed of this version is 130 mph and the 0-60 mph time of just 8.1 seconds is quick by class standards. Fuel economy is also outstanding - 68.9 mpg combined. The diesel unit is most impressive, delivering immediate power from low revs and keeping it coming as you gain speed. It is a tad more noisy than some rivals but not intrusively so. Classily styled on the outside, the cabin looks welcoming with quality fabrics and soft-touch plastics on show. A wide span of seat and steering wheel adjustment means most drivers should be able to get the right position, and the facia layout is logical and dominated by

a seven-inch touch screen for the main controls. Rear seat accommodation is also good for space though the rather narrow rear side-windows give a faintly claustrophobic feeling. Boot space is quite generous and the rear seats fold near-flat for larger loads. Safety kit is a Mazda3 strong-point - all versions come with six airbags, stability control, tyre pressure-monitoring system and a five-star rating in Euro NCAP crash rating. These and its many other plus points give the Mazda 3 a definite edge in a crowded sector.
