EMPTY FOR WINTER? With winter just around the corner now is the ideal time to start thinking about your property if it is vacant. Maybe you have an empty property on the sales market or you’re a landlord with a current tenancy that is coming to an end, whatever your circumstance the last thing you want to have to do is spend time protecting and constantly checking the house over the festive period. Several things you can do to protect an empty home include; checking your boiler and leaving the heating ticking over which will help reduce the risk of freezing, making sure that your pipes are lagged to avoid them freezing, thawing and eventually bursting, checking doors and windows for gaps and make sure that they are sealed in order to block any draughts, checking your stop tap to ensure you know it is working and can be turned off quickly in the event of a leak and clearing your gutters as blocked guttering can cause water to leak into the roof or down walls. If your property is vacant it may be a good idea to drain the system down and switch the water off at the stop tap. If you would rather avoid the hassle of all this, especially if you live away from the property then why not think about letting?

Here at The Lettings Bureau we offer property management services to suit your individual needs and can tailor make a package to suit you. We carry out professional credit checks on all applicants over 18 and obtain both an employer and landlord reference also. Once a tenancy has been agreed we draw up the Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement normally for 6 months initially, and compile an inventory and schedule of condition noting down all items left in the property and the condition of the decoration and carpets. The property is managed from our Penny Street office which is dedicated to residential lettings and open 6 days a week. We also employ a property visit clerk who carries out regular checks on your property once let, and have a list of approved contractors should any maintenance be required. All payments and accounting take place here too – it’s all under one roof! So to take the worry out of letting your home and to have your property occupied this winter please call 01524 32222 or contact us by email at lettings@fisherwrathall.co.uk

Cloudy2Clear Windows – Service With A Smile!

It’s been a crazy few months for Cloudy2Clear Windows. The company which specialises in repairing windows which are steamed up, broken or damaged by replacing the panes – not the frames has grown rapidly as homeowners take advantage of their services. Branch Manager Roger Bonnick feels that it’s all about service. ‘Our product is simple. If your double glazing is misted up we can replace the glass at a fraction of the cost of a new window, in any type of frame, and with a new 5 year guarantee. But it’s not just about saving people money, although that obviously helps. Many

tradespeople have struggled since last year and I honestly feel that during the good times a minority perhaps didn’t focus on customer care as much as they should have done. We make sure we turn up when we say we will, do the job the customer requires and leave their house as clean as a whistle. I often get comments back from customers on how they really didn’t expect that sort of service which, in a way, is very sad for the service industry as a whole.’ Cloudy2Clear service the Lancaster, Morecambe & Carnforth areas and Roger is finding that his approach is a major factor

in his success. ‘The truth is that it’s not just the personal satisfaction that I get from doing a good job but also it makes good business sense. I get a huge amount of business from friends and family of people I’ve done work for,

which just goes to show how much a little bit of effort is appreciated.’ So, if your windows are steamed up, broken or damaged give Roger a call for a free quotation on 0800 61 21 118 and he’ll be happy to help!

RECIPE

With jam season now well under way, here’s a delicious and unusual alternative to the traditional fruit recipe sweet potato and Ginger jam. A perfect accompaniment for both sweet and savoury dishes, sweet potato jam tastes delicious spread over a slice of wholemeal bread or when served with an after dinner cheese board. What’s more sweet potatoes are packed full of vitamin A and a good source of potassium, fibre and vitamin C, and unlike ordinary potatoes counts toward one of the five-a-day.

 

Ingredients 250g Sweet potatoes 250g Sugar 50g Grated fresh ginger

Preparation 1. Peel the sweet potatoes, place in a pan with some water and boil until soft. 2. Drain the sweet potatoes and mash. 3. Weigh the sweet potatoes and place in a heavy based pan with an equal quantity of sugar. 4. Place on medium heat and bring to the boil stirring occasionally, add the ginger to taste, reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for at least ten minutes. Carry on cooking until the desired consistency has been reached. 5. Sterilise some jam jars by boiling them in water. 6. Pour the hot jam into the hot jam jars. 7. Leave to cool.

16

  You can also flavour the jam with lemon or orange zest or try adding a little vanilla.  Unlike most jams, sweet potato jam does not have a specific setting point, so you can make it as thick as you like. The more you cook the jam the denser it will become.  It is worthwhile remembering that the jam will keep for a number of months so you can make it in reasonably large batches.

Your Family Matters… …So make sure your family is in safe hands Angela Singleton, head of the family department at MG Legal Solutions, your local family solicitors, specialises in all aspects of family law, including divorce, domestic violence, dissolution of civil partnerships, residency, and the division of assets and finances following separation. MG Legal Solutions are now members of Resolution, first for family law. As members of Resolution, MG Legal Solutions are committed to dealing with family disputes in a constructive way in order to encourage agreements and to help broken families work towards a future. MG Legal Solutions work for you to ensure the best possible outcome, in order that you can pick up the pieces once more and get your life back on track.

MG Legal Solutions have the firm belief that children come first. It is important when children are involved to put differences aside and to take an objective look at what is best for the child. It is with this approach that MG Legal Solutions have been able to assist in defusing hostile relationship break-ups, and help clients to get the clean break they deserve with the financial backing they need. Angela says “We find that many of our clients approach us in a state of turmoil, and who can blame them? It can feel like your whole world is crumbling when your family-life is breaking down. “It’s when our clients leave the office with an action plan, a sense of control they felt that they had lost, and a positive view of what the future may hold that I remember why I got into family law

MG Legal Solutions are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (554094)

law, and it really makes my job worthwhile.” MG Legal Solutions have an office in Garstang and have just secured a new office in Lancaster City Centre, which is due to open at the end of October.
