Editor’s LEttEr... Christmas may be weeks away but we got the party season off to an early start with one of the most spectacular events on the property industry’s calendar – the Your Move Property Awards. Marking its tenth year, the disco glam event brought sparkling style and a celebration of the industry’s success, and we’ve got a nine-page spread of all the winners and pictures from the night. Also in this issue, What’s In Store provides inspiration to get your Christmas shopping underway and Interiors suggests items to make your home more cosy as the winter sets in. Finally, congratulations to lucky reader Karen McLoughlin from Litherland, who won our fantastic dinner and hotel break competition (featured in issue 351).

equity release and mortgage adviser, Maxwell Hodge

manager, Liverpool Furniture

associate director, Keppie Massie Residential

My father is considering taking out an equity release mortgage on a property to raise some money. At what point will he have to pay the money back?


I’m looking for a new flat but I’m a little confused about the difference between part furnished and fully furnished. What does a landlord provide for each and what sort of quality furniture can I expect?

I’ve recently bought and renovated a house to rent out. I’m now looking for an estate agent to market the property. What fees will I have to pay and what information will I need to give them?

D harris, l3

s McKenzie, l27

part furnished flat will have some pieces of furniture and you will then have to provide the rest of the furniture yourself. You don’t usually have a choice as to whether you accept the furniture or not or what furniture is included in part furnished. It’s solely at the landlord’s discretion. A fully furnished property is exactly that, everything is there ready for you to move straight in. You might find that the rent is a little higher on a fully furnished property due to the furniture being taken into account. As a guide to what you might expect, a two-bed fully furnished flat will usually come with two complete beds, two three piece wardrobe sets, two sofas, a dining set, a coffee table and a TV stand. The quality will vary from landlord to landlord and what type of property you are renting. There are different qualities of furniture from high end to budget ranges and tenants really need to liaise with their agent/landlord for confirmation.

ny rental property will need a current gas safety certificate and energy performance certificate. Whilst not mandatory, it is best practice to have electrical items tested by an NICEIC qualified electrician. By using an ARLA member agent, you will have access to all of these services under one roof. Proof of identification and if applicable, consent to let from your mortgage lender is now advisable, as lenders are targeting residential properties being used as buy to let investments. We also recommend a professional inventory is carried out, in our case, by an independent inventory company. Fees will vary from agent to agent, depending on the level of service you require. Find tenant only versus fully managed. As the rental market is increasingly under scrutiny and changing legislation, a reputable agent can save the landlord a lot of time and inconvenience. Speak to member agents and use the company that you feel most comfortable with.



J Weir, l9 Under the rules of The Equity Release Council which was set up to protect the customer, an equity release plan will finish at either death, admittance to long term care or voluntary repayment. The amount repayable to the lender depends upon the type of equity release plan. The amount a client can release will be based upon their age, health and property value. Any mortgage the client has will have to be repaid with the initial release as the lender will want to be the only secured charge on the property. If affordable to the client they can make interest only or overpayments with certain plans. Alternatively they can allow the interest to “roll up” annually or sell a set percentage for a reduced lump sum. Equity release may involve a lifetime mortgage or a home reversion plan. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration. The job of the adviser is to associate the best plan with the client’s needs and requirements.

sales MarKet is ‘piCKing up’, says City agent a bit faster.” According to Sheila, Anfield was among areas which had particularly seen a boost in sales, especially since approval has been given to a proposed regeneration scheme in the area. “I don’t think it’s all because of Help to Buy,” adds Sheila. “I just think the market has been generally picking up. “I’ve always said that this country is not a country of renters.”

The property market has been picking up in Merseyside regardless of help from government schemes such as Help to Buy, according to one city estate agent. Sheila Renshaw, proprietor of the Anfield-based Priory Property Services which sells and lets homes right across Merseyside, says the agency sold seven houses in just one week earlier this month and such success therefore demonstrates that there has been a rise in people purchasing new homes.

Elaine picks up her award

iverpool’s Elaine Cunningham has won a top regional award for her interior design business.

Elaine, who owns two stores in the city and also runs an online store, was presented with the Retail Business Woman of the Year accolade at the recent Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards in Manchester, sponsored by Barclays. The ceremony at the city’s Midland Hotel celebrated the achievements of women across the North West and the Isle of Man. Elaine, who launched her own furniture and design company after working in the family business for 25 years, adapted as a retailer during the economic downturn by also introducing giftware lines such as jewellery and children’s clothing. On receiving the prize she says: “I was honoured to be awarded Retail Business Woman of the year, and it is fantastic for the company’s achievements to be recognised. Forward Ladies is a great organisation to be a part of and the awards are a wonderful way to meet like minded business women where we can share ideas and knowledge.”

Lord Heseltine during a tour of the neighbourhood

Lord Heseltine visits Stockbridge Village Villages Housing Association welcomed former Deputy Prime Minister Lord Heseltine to Stockbridge Village, showcasing the regeneration that has taken place there over the last three years. Lord Heseltine previously visited the area, then known as Cantril Farm estate, in 1982 when he was Secretary of State and Minister for Merseyside. At the time the area was in decline and Lord Heseltine requested a report into how improvements could be made, which was then said to have prompted the first large scale stock transfer of social housing in the country . Returning to Stockbridge Village alongside his wife, Lady Heseltine, he was also greeted by representatives from Knowsley Council and residents from the area for a tour of the estate. Following the visit, Lord Heseltine says: “It has been a delight to visit Stockbridge Village and to witness such remarkable developments to the area. I have a strong belief that one of the key drivers of growth and transformation, is listening to the general public about how changes can be made. Working together is much more effective than working in isolation, the demonstration of the public and private sectors working together with the community have a central part to play in Stockbridge Villages’ determination to build a stronger future."

Women boost services offered through Handy Persons scheme A team of female DIY experts will be at the beck and call of vulnerable people across Merseyside, as part of Liverpool’s Handy Persons scheme. The initiative, run by Liverpool City Council in partnership with Riverside Housing and Housing Maintenance Solutions (HMS), has teamed up with leading social enterprise Blackburne House to provide more access to female professionals alongside its existing team. Through the Handy Persons scheme, which offers over 65s and those with disabilities subsidised, £15-per-hour rates for maintenance workers, the Blackburne House Maintenance Ltd female-staffed maintenance business will provide services so that residents can now choose a female

operative if they wish. The scheme, which uses a £250,000 grant from HMS to subsidise workers, carries out tasks such as fitting locks, spyholes and door chains to unblocking sinks, replacing light bulbs and one-off garden clean-ups. Liverpool City Council’s cabinet member for housing, Councillor Ann O’Byrne, says: “The majority of those who use this service are women, and we understand that some may feel more comfortable opening their door to a female operative. That’s why I’m delighted that we’ve brought Blackburne House on board to support the scheme.” To find out more about the Handy Persons scheme, call 0151 295 6102.

Rise in demand for one-bedroom homes The Carlton Pub, Birkenhead

Changes in welfare reform have increased landlords’ demand for one-bedroom properties, according to auction expert Smith and Sons. The ‘bedroom tax’, which cuts the amount of benefit people receive if they have a spare bedroom in their council house or housing association property, could lead to more investment in one-bedroom properties in future, according to the auctioneer. Ahead of a December auction in Bromborough, Wirral, the property consultancy says interest in auction property can often highlight changes in the market and properties that can be easily converted into one-bedroom units are attracting the most attention this time around. Chris Johnson, auctioneer at Smith and

Sons, says: “The auction can often act as a barometer of the wider changes taking shape within the property sector. Welfare reform changes, which limit the number of bedrooms to one per occupier, are now being felt and a shortage in this type of accommodation is being looked at keenly by developers and investors, as well as social landlords.” The auction, which takes place at the Village Hotel on 4 December, includes 12 one-bedroom flats in Oxton Village and the Carlton Pub in Borough Road, Birkenhead, which can be converted into single units. Smith and Sons says ‘‘a number of potential’’ buyers have viewed the properties. For a catalogue, viewings or further information call 0151 647 9272.

I was an office junior for Halifax Estate Agents in West Derby and that is where my love for selling houses began.

I bought it with my partner nine years ago and it needed a lot of work but we have got it how we want it now.



I went to a holiday camp in Wales when I was about three with my family. The holiday was cut short as three of us got whooping cough.

Job: What does your job entail? I run the sales and rental departments at our busy Crosby branch, and research and appraise properties for people who wish to sell or let their homes for the best price possible. What’s your favourite thing about the job? I think every estate agent would say their favourite thing is achieving a sale or a let for our vendors and landlords alike which, I have to admit, feels fantastic. I’ve been known to jump around the office following a sale, which I’m a little embarrassed to admit. I also enjoy seeing my team doing well, as they are so committed to their roles and are a real credit to Reeds Rains.

guide to...

It’s not just Help to Buy helping people get their first step on the property ladder. Some house buyers in the UK are using shared ownership schemes to move in to their first home. Here is how you can do the same.

learning to share

‘Staircasing’ happens why you buy more shares after moving in and requires you to pay for a valuation on the house to determine the price of a share. If the house has gone up in value you will pay more for a share and vice versa – but either way you will have to arrange a mortgage for any extra shares you buy. If you wish to sell the property and own 100% of shares the housing association has first refusal and keeps this right for 21 years after you fully own the home. If you only own a share the housing association has the right to find a buyer for the property when you wish to sell up.

Using shared ownership to buy your house does not mean you will be sharing with a stranger. Instead it means you buy part of the property and pay rent to a housing association for the remainder of the value. By only paying for a share of the house, the initial deposit will be much smaller than buying the house outright

what is shared ownershiP? Shared ownership schemes are offered by housing associations and allow you to buy a share of your home, typically between 25% and 75 % of its value, and pay rent on the remaining shares. David Robinson of Riverside Home Ownership says: “Shared ownership is an affordable way to take the first step onto the property ladder. By buying a share in a home, say 50%, and paying a subsidised rent on the remainder, owning part of your home can be cheaper than renting it. You usually have the option to own 100% in the future, buying the extra shares when it suits you.” Shared ownership schemes are available through a leasehold, which means you own the property for a fixed period of time (usually 99 years), after which it goes back to the landlord.

who is eligible?

how does it work? Before moving in you will have to take out a mortgage on your share of the house. Some banks will offer specialist shared ownership mortgages and as with any house purchase, the larger the deposit the better terms you will be offered.

To be eligible for a shared ownership scheme you must be a first time buyer or have already sold your current home and it is only available to households earning £60,000 per year or less. If you do decide to use shared ownership, you will not be alone. According to the National Housing Federation, there are 200,000 people in the UK who have chosen to buy a house this way. It says: “As more people are priced out of buying their home on the open market, demand for shared ownership is growing rapidly.”

star signs Catherine hegarty set up liverpool signing Choir as an after school club but it has grown significantly from humble beginnings. we speak to Catherine about performing at the olympics, in front of Parliament and being awarded the top volunteer award, the Queen’s award.

interview by stePhen hurrell

How did the choir come about? My two sisters are interpreters for the deaf so I used to watch them signing all the time and it intrigued me. I thought it was wonderful so I put myself in for a BSL (British Sign Language) level one. A job came up for a nursery nurse at a deaf resource school and I’ve been there for 18 years. I asked if I could start an after school club so I started a signing choir. The children within the school all have signing lessons, even the mainstream children. I started off with 12 children, all hearing, and one profoundly deaf child. To be honest I thought it was just six sessions at an after school club but it just grew and grew. We were getting children from all over the city

and they were bringing their friends. In the end it grew too big for a primary school hall so we went to Broadgreen International School and rather than just doing it as the Knotty Ash school signing choir we changed it and launched the Liverpool Signing Choir. The beauty of the choir is that they don’t have to know how to sign or how to sing. What has been the reaction to the choir? I see what it does to the kids. It’s amazing. We’ve got children who are so painfully shy and their confidence is rock bottom and the parents will tell you it’s done wonders for their children’s confidence and concentration. It’s really opened up what some people thought was a silent world for the children – and

not just the deaf children. We’ve committed ourselves as a choir that if the children show dedication we will fundraise and send them to evening classes to get their level one and two in sign language. What was it like to win the Queen’s Award? Everybody was so proud. It is the highest award you can get for a voluntary group and, taking me out of the equation, it was well deserved. The kids worked so hard and you see them all the time but the people you don’t see are the choir staff who work their socks off. And the parents, if they didn’t support us we wouldn’t do half the things we do. It was an amazing honour and words can’t describe how everybody was feeling that day.


“the kids were so excited. they saw people like one direction and i think they were a bit star struck! ”

Our city has really opened its arms to us. As far as we know, Liverpool was the only one to have a signing choir for the Olympic flame relay, for example. How did you get a place at the Olympics closing ceremony? That was five years of knocking on doors and getting them slammed in my face but I just didn’t give up. When the UK got the Olympics myself and Annie Bennett, Knotty Ash’s headteacher, used to say we were going. We always said that and when there was five years to go I wrote to them. I really pushed and pushed it, writing and emailing. Eventually we were given the go ahead after a lot of local MPs got on board to help us out.

What was it like at the Olympics? The kids were so excited. They saw people like One Direction and I think they were a bit star struck! I left it to the young ones and I was just in the tunnel crying. I couldn’t believe we were actually there. It was a proud moment for me. We then had the honour of going to the opening ceremony of the Paralympics and that was great. I had to pinch myself and I thought ‘did that really happen?’ It’s brilliant the way they can now say they were there and they did that. You also played at the launch of the John Lennon Peace Monument? We were doing Beatles Day in Williamson Square and John Lennon’s sister Julie Birch was

walking past. She stopped as we were doing all the Beatles songs. She got speaking to one of the staff and asked if we were going to the Echo Arena that night. We weren’t but she got my number and said we were on the following week. She was true to her word and she got up and signed Imagine with us. It was from that we were invited to the unveiling of the Peace Monument. It’s not all about those big things though. My favourite thing to do is if we go to somewhere like a retirement home. They ask if we can just go for half an hour but we end up staying much longer. The kids love sitting and chatting with the residents and having a cup of tea. If it wasn’t for that and the supermarkets, or just going on a windy street somewhere to perform, we wouldn’t be getting the likes of the Olympics.

The festival, now in its seventh year, has been nominated for Best Metropolitan Festival and Best Line-Up in the 2013 UK Festival Awards.

‘INSPIRING’ CHILDREN’S LITERARY FESTIVAL GETS UNDERWAY The Bootle Children’s Literary Festival is currently taking place across a number of events in schools, parks and shops to inspire children to take up reading.

Festive partygoers will be able to achieve a quick sunkissed glow to warm up their winter look, thanks to the arrival of a new product at Liverpool’s Strip Wax Boutique. The salon, inside Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar, has launched the Fiji Express Two Hour Tan which allows clients to shower it off within two to three hours. The product aims to allow users to hit the salon straight from work, and then by the time they’ve headed home to freshen up their tan will be ready. The tan still requires at least eight hours to develop, however a spokesperson for Strip Wax Boutique says: “Fiji Express Two Hour Tan has 13% DHA and the same fabulous colour as our other solutions, but with the convenience of showering in two to three hours.

snazzy but snug (ABOVE) American Apparel, Paradise Street Christmas isn't Christmas without popping a pair of socks in your loved ones' stockings. With a reassuringly huge selection of vivid colours available at American Apparel, you can be sure to find a super stylish unisex pair (£7 calf-high, £8 knee-high) to please even the pickiest of people. Unbelievably soft and snug, you can even find a matching pair of briefs, for those who like their underclothes to be elegantly uniform!

Firm indie favourite Landbaby has certainly grown wings, with owner Claire Bates having to manage orders for her gorgeous bespoke, locally crafted homeware, jewellery and art from as far away as Hong Kong and Australia. Layla Amber's autumnal Woodland collection of earrings, hairpins and badges, which is only available here, is flying off the shelves. Quirky, beautiful and starting at £8, get them before they go Down Under!

VINTAGE VELVET (RIGHT) Pop Boutique, Bold Street One of the best on Bold Street in terms of retro finery, the guys at Pop Boutique go one step further and stock their own wonderful clothes in addition to the carefully selected pre-loved items, such as these gorgeously wintry velvet dresses, brilliantly bridging the gap between classic clothing and high street chic. At £28 a (ahem) pop, we might have to get more than one.

The long approved recipe hasn't changed; however the iconic Kiehl's container it comes in has had a style overhaul as part of their Holiday 2013 Collection in collaboration with NYC artist Eric Haze.

bold street sweets Bold Street, Liverpool This city centre sweet shop is wall to wall with colourful treats, and its selection is varied enough to keep any sweet-toothed visitor happy. Traditional bonbons and candies from across the pond to novelty sweets and boxes of chocolates are amongst the offering, whilst the store’s bespoke hampers could make the ideal sugary gift.

Attend a workshop in Wirral or Liverpool, or order one of the artisan chocolate shop’s sharing platters, tasty truffles or melt-in-the-mouth treats from its ‘Bags of Happiness’.

My carnivorous dinner date and I didn’t need much persuading when asked to review the recently opened Brazilian rodizio, Fazenda. Situated on Exchange Flags, behind Liverpool Town Hall, it’s the second Fazenda to be opened after the first was a huge success in Leeds. The restaurant looks extremely inviting from outside, with an outdoor seating area warmed by heaters. On entering Fazenda, a welcoming waiter sat us at the bar, where we enjoyed an unfamiliar Portuguese lager. The restaurant has a warm and cosy décor, and equestrian themed items including saddles and stirrups adorn the walls giving it the feel of an authentic South American ranch. Once seated the waitress helpfully explained how the rodizio restaurant worked. As someone who can indecisively stare at a menu for 20 minutes, it suits me perfectly. If you’re unfamiliar with a rodizio, it is a style of restaurant service popular in Brazil where waiters and

waitresses bring skewers of cooked meats to you and serve at your table. You flip a card to signal to the waiter whether you would like to be served more - green is yes and red is no. For a fixed price, which ranges from £25.90 - £27.90 depending on the day you visit, you get an unlimited amount of 15 cuts of meat and a buffet choice of sides. The sides bar features different salads, breads, cured meats, continental cheeses and also the very tasty traditional Brazilian Feijoada - a black bean stew with beef and pork. Although I’m normally a beer drinker, I felt it would be a crime not to try the rich meats with a glass of red wine. Fazenda has an extensive wine menu with white, red, rose, sparkling and champagne all on offer. Bottles range from £20 to £100. I decided to go for a large glass of Brazilian red wine (£7.10). With a choice of 15 cooked meats there are too many to mention, however my favourites had to be the cordeiro, a succulent leg of lamb which is seasoned


with mint sauce; linguiça, an extremely tasty traditional South American sausage; and the gammon or ‘presunto’ as the waiters refer to it. I also tried a few chicken hearts, which are a delicacy in Brazil. The hearts are marinated in herbs and garlic and have a slightly chewy but extremely pleasant texture. After an hour and a half of enjoying delicious cuts of meat, I decided to reluctantly flip over my card to the red side and signal to the waiters that I’d had enough. This was subsequently flipped back round to green various times when the waiters brought out another delicious looking skewer of meat. There is a fantastic selection of delicious deserts on offer; however, unfortunately my dinner date and I were too full to try them! Fazenda is a fantastic new addition to the city and is perfect for meat loving diners who are looking for a continuous flow of extremely tasty and succulent meats. Your Move 85

Pudsey’s PyJama Party hildren across Merseyside attended a special pyjama party at Sefton Park Palm House to raise money for Children in Need. The charity event, organised by Jumping Jacks, raised £1,264 through ticket sales and a face painting stand. Children and adults were joined by Pudsey to take part in games, music and dancing. Delicious Pudsey-themed cakes were also served to hungry guests. Lucie Campbell, founder of Jumping Jacks, says: “It was a great atmosphere at the event and everybody had a great time. As well as the money raised, people also brought Pudsey merchandise with them and we encouraged everybody to watch Children in Need on Friday night so that they knew what it was for.”
