Hot off the press YOUR GUIDE TO THE LATEST PROPERTY IN LIVERPOOL

Exclusive invitation Summer afternoon at Crofton Estate For buyers, and those motivated to move in and rent, the Crofton Estate is holding a special summer afternoon launch at the picturesque grounds in Aigburth.

On June 5 from 12pm until 4pm, prospective buyers and renters are invited to visit the redeveloped mansion house and

Crofton Estate, Aigburth

tour the show apartment designed by Fran Guinan of Furnish That Room. There will also be a show townhouse to view, and all the properties are released to rent with the houses also marketed for sales. Organised jointly by Venmores and Keppie Massie, entrance to the event is by invitation only.

Home Information Packs scrapped

Sue Taylor, head of residential at Keppie Massie, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity for buyers and those motivated to rent now, to view the stunning properties and landscaped grounds at the Crofton Estate. The rental apartments are available from £1200 pcm, and the accommodation is of a very

high quality. We welcome all interested parties to join us for a wonderful summer afternoon at the site.” To request your invitation, contact Sue Taylor at Keppie Massie on 0151 236 9660 or Nick Dawson at Venmores on 0151 733 9000.

Enter the dragon

Welcome news for vendors, says estate agent The news that the controversial home information packs (HIPs) are being scrapped with immediate effect, has met with a positive reaction from one city centre estate agent. The news was welcomed by Andrew Louis’ managing director, Louis Anastasiou. He commented: 'The pointless packs failed to help buyers and discouraged a large number of potential vendors from putting their property on the market in recent months. The move means homeowners will no longer need to spend money providing one of the packs before they can put their property up for sale.” Vendors will still be required to

get an energy performance certificate, showing how energy efficient a property is, within 28 days of putting their home on the market.

Louis Anastasiou

Dragon Boat

Staff from a Liverpool housing association picked up four medals at the Corporate Games. Over 100 staff from Riverside tried their hand at events including dragon boat racing, ten pin bowling, go-karting and golf. Riverside workers from Carlisle to Dartford competed in venues across the city as part of the games, with the cricket team scooping gold. Technical support manager Debbie Anacoura claimed the top prize in squash, while Deb Clisham picked up a bronze in swimming. Julie Sang also secured third place for running. Riverside’s Suey George commented: “The

Corporate Games was a chance to bring staff from across the organisation together outside the work environment. Riverside was represented by a whole range of people from joiners and bricklayers to support workers and community engagement officers, policy managers and regeneration managers. It was a great opportunity to build employee confidence, loyalty and team spirit.” Three thousand participants competed in 23 sports at venues including the Liverpool Arena, Wavertree Sports Park, Hollywood Bowl and Liverpool Watersports Centre in Queens Dock.

Seminar for landlords

Denovo Design new offices

Michelle Stevenson

A leading city law firm is hosting a seminar to arm landlords with the right legal advice to avoid the pitfalls of unlawful eviction. Michelle Stevenson, partner and head of housing at Kirwans, said landlords were under greater pressure than ever because of the growing number of tenants breaching their tenancy agreements due to the continuing economic turndown. Kirwans is hosting a seminar on Wednesday, June 9, to provide landlords with an overview of the law surrounding possession proceedings and unlawful eviction. Michelle Stevenson, who will be presenting the seminar, said: “Thanks to the current economic climate, many residential landlords are being placed in a situation where tenants are breaching their tenancy agreements by failing to meet their rental payments.” She continued: “This seminar will provide information about how landlords can legally tackle these problems in the quickest, cheapest way and by avoiding potential legal action against them in the future.” The event, which will include refreshments and networking, is taking place on Wednesday 9 June 2010 from 4-6pm in the boardroom on the eighth floor of the Martins Building, Water Street. To reserve a place please contact Alison Scragg on 0151 229 5600 or email ascragg@kirwanssolicitors. co.uk.

undertake a variety of projects. Denovo picked up the Environment Award at the 2007 Your Move awards and have since worked on a number of schemes outside the region. The

company, which prides itself on its ‘eco-friendly’ record, was this year shortlisted for the Sustainable Award by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Riverside’s Stella move Stella Nova has become the new home of Riverside’s Sefton office The housing association has made the switch from Merton Road in Bootle to the new Washington Parade development.

The new offices

are more spacious, comfortable and modern, offering a welcoming base for tenants, residents and customers to drop in to discuss rents, repairs, applications for housing,

HOMEBUY SQUARED OFF St Paul’s Square has placed its last remaining HomeBuy property on the market HomeBuy is a government backed shared equity scheme which helps buyers on to the property ladder by offering up to 30 per cent off the purchase price. St Paul’s Square is the only development in Liverpool city centre to offer the scheme, with the last remaining apartment available from £69,950. Martyn

Green from agents King Sturge added: “The last 12 months has seen unprecedented demand for affordable buying options in Liverpool city centre. First time buyers have been savvy, buying their first property in the current market. They have also been able to take advantage of schemes like HomeBuy Direct and Liverpool’s Access to Home Ownership grant which helps first time buyers

with legal costs. The demand for HomeBuy apartments at St Paul’s Square has been so strong that we have now sold all but one of the allocated HomeBuy apartments, which we expect to sell very quickly.” For further enquiries telephone King Sturge on 0151 242 6490 or visit www.theperfectsquare.co.uk

BoConcept Liverpool has introduced an interest free payment plan to help customers achieve their dreams of a design-led home. Elaine Cunningham Interiors, a stockist of Designers Guild, Osborne & Little and Zoffany and Cole & Son, also offers the scheme, which sees purchasers pay off an amount towards the items of their choice each week or month, taking the product home when the purchase has been finalised. Owner of BoConcept Liverpool and Elaine Cunningham Interiors, Elaine Cunningham, commented: “The payment plan is very popular, but we want to promote it now so that all of our customers are aware of it. It helps people to afford the high-end furnishings and accessories that they want, but by paying in smaller instalments.” The payment plan is available on all products at the stores, including furniture, lighting, mirrors, pictures and accessories.

We like it. This was one of the better homes we saw. We had to move so we held on for somewhere decent. We only used to live 10 minutes around the corner so it was good to stay in the area. I’ve lived all my life in Bootle and my daughter starts at Hillside High School in September.

It’s a lot warmer! We have triple glazing throughout and the combi-boiler means we have hot water on top. We’re right opposite the park which is lovely too. Before we had a view of barbed wire and a BT box!

Downstairs there’s a large living room and kitchen, with a lovely big storage area and a downstairs toilet. We only had one toilet before. There are facilities for a stair lift and the nice wide stairs lead you to the two bedrooms and master bathroom.

The kitchen is very nice. It’s bright and modern and it’s lovely when the sun beams in. My bird clock makes a different bird noise on the hour.

There’s a red theme consistent with the carpet and sofa. The Dilbert calendar and my husband’s drawings take pride of place. He’s been sketching ever since I met him. There’s a photo frame/CD rack in the corner. We all like music and my daughter Joanne is always watching shows like X Factor and Over the Rainbow.

I’m going to get round to doing more in the garden. I’d like to put a few plants in and just make it a bit more picturesque. We’d also like to get a patio set.

I love the vase I was given for my birthday. It fits in nicely with the decor in the living room.

With summer approaching I’d really like to buy a paddling pool for my daughter.

Yeah there’s an area at the front and a decent sized garden at the back, which is easy to manage. They gave us a shed and a water butt and we’ve put a few of our garden ornaments in. We have the sun in the garden virtually all day, right into the evening.

PAINTING & DECORATING SERVICES Julia Casimo

Beating the rise in Capital Gains Tax The new coalition government intends to double the rates of Capital Gains Tax, and is rumoured to be seriously considering the reduction of the annual tax free threshold from £10,100 to £1,000. Investors with property portfolios are faced with the prospect that the Tax man may claim almost half their gains on disposal...

Q. I have a buy-to-let property that has been empty for a while and I am currently selling it. I am a higher rate tax payer. What do I need to think about from a tax angle? A. When you dispose of a rental property that is not your main residence you will be subject to Capital Gains Tax (CGT). For the last few years the rate of CGT on nontrading investment assets like property and shares has been a very favourable 18%. So if you were to sell the property now this would be the rate which applied. However if you sell the property after the proposals take effect, and the Emergency Budget is scheduled for 22 June 2010, then the rate may increase to 40 or 50% depending on your other income in the year. Furnished holiday lets currently benefit from the more favourable ‘business asset’ tax status, but there is no certainty as yet as to whether this will continue.

CALL PETER ON 07947 119 162 FOR A FREE ESTIMATE

The timing of the proposed changes is also unclear but it is most likely that they will be implemented from the date of the Emergency Budget.

Greener Energy

Q. What can I do to avoid this?

Services Ltd

A. The proposals are frustratingly vague so it is difficult to plan with certainty. Obviously an early sale, i.e. before the budget is attractive (bearing in mind the fact that the government is unlikely to backdate the changes), however this may not be practically achievable. If you are married or in a civil partnership, then you could consider changing the ownership of the property into your partner’s name if they have a lower income level than you, but you would need to take detailed advice on this.

HAVE YOUR SAY YOUR VIEWS ON BIG ISSUES “Liverpool does not need a campsite. We have amazing hotels and B&Bs in the city to suit every taste and budget. Liverpool Sound City is Glastonbury in a city: it’s about creating a festival atmosphere without having to bring your tent and wellies.”

Dave Pichilingi organiser, Liverpool Sound City

DOES LIVERPOOL NEED A CAMPSITE NEAR THE CITY CENTRE?

“In the business world the basic economic laws of supply and demand are very much alive and well. The city offers an extensive supply of accommodation at varying prices. If there were sufficiently strong demand for a camp site, I believe an entrepreneur would spot this gap in the market and look to exploit it. Liverpool the destination continues to attract visitors from around the world for its culture and attractions, but possibly not its climate.”

"From the airport's perspective we naturally welcome improved facilities in the region to help attract a diverse mix of visitors. A properly organised campsite may well help to fill a gap in the market and attract visitors from across Europe who prefer to use campsites, who may currently be looking elsewhere in the UK to visit."

Robin Tudor head of PR, Peel Airports Group at John Lennon Airport

Stephen Roberts general manager, Crowne Plaza Liverpool

HAVE YOUR SAY: Email post@movepublishing.co.uk

“We identified many years ago that we’re short on camping provision and caravan space in the city region, and it’s been my personal mission to secure a Caravan Club site. Only one per cent of visitors to Liverpool city region stay and camp as we don’t have many facilities available – as compared to Cumbria, where 10 per cent of all overnight visitors to Cumbria are camping and caravanning. The benefit of a site would be an additional £750,000 a year of extra spend in the economy of the city region.”

“Anything which brings a range of facilities to broaden the appeal of a family friendly city break in Liverpool would be a great addition, but I think location is everything. As Liverpool’s most visited tourist destination; the Albert Dock has two amazing low cost hotels on site - so why would you want to camp when you can book a family room from as little as £40, which includes a hot cooked breakfast?”

Jeremy Roberts chair of the Albert Dock Tenants Association

In conjunction with the big-screen success of Mamma Mia, the stage version of the Abba musical has reached international acclaim, with over 42 million enjoying a nostalgic sing-a-long in every corner of the globe. The story of a bride-to-be’s quest to discover the identity of her father arrives at the Liverpool Echo Arena at the beginning of June. Promising young actor Gary Watson, who plays Sky, spoke to Jonathan Kearney about his musical journey.

INTERVIEW BY JONATHAN KEARNEY Is this the biggest production you’ve been involved with? Yeah, because we’re hitting arenas all over the world and the audiences in theatres don’t tend to be as big. It’s been absolutely amazing. How did you land the role of Sky? The same as with other productions really. You have to go through about four of five auditions before it’s whittled down. I suppose it’s a bit like X Factor! When I heard of all the places the cast get to go to, I knew it was a part I really wanted. Have you always been an Abba fan? It’s funny because the music definitely isn’t my generation but when we came to rehearsals I knew all the songs. I don’t quite know how! I think you pick them up as a kid when you hear your Mum and Dad play them and they’ve been covered so many times. I had no problem learning my words! I really enjoyed the film too. I actually saw it before I’d seen the show. I just thought it captured the spirit and the fun of it all. What’s it like to be involved with a world tour? This tour has been going on for five years. Since the film came out it has reached out to places further and further afield. Everyone wants a piece of it. I’m so excited about being involved

42 Your Move

with it each night. There are 18 productions around the world, which is massive. We’re all under the umbrella of one big family. Last year was a really mixed bag, visiting places like Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and New Zealand. This year it’s been mainly Germany, Switzerland and the UK. The show is perfect for a British audience. They really get into it. Are you looking forward to the Liverpool Arena dates? I’m really excited about coming to Liverpool. I’ve only ever passed through so I haven’t really been out and seen it. Everyone I speak to raves about it. My family are coming up to see me in Liverpool but I think they’re using it as an excuse to go out! We’re here for three weeks so we should be able to get out and see the sights and the nightlife.

Does everyone in the cast get on? Yeah, they do. We’re like one big family. There are ups and downs like everyone has but we’re together 24/7. Everyone’s so appreciative of the opportunity they’ve been given and the chance to travel the world. Has Mamma Mia been the best experience of your acting career? It is definitely my favourite job overall. The show itself is so much fun. The audience goes mad for it. I’ve been really fortunate in my career so far in that I’ve had a real mix of different roles. This is a whole different experience in different ways. What kind of things would you like to do in the future? Anything really, because there are so many good shows out there. A lot of it is down to timing but there’s a lot I’d like to do. In the future I really want to try everything, even things like radio. I’ve been out of college for about four years now and I’m really happy with how things have gone. You can’t really plan anything so you just have to go with it, be happy when times are good and prepared for it when they’re not. Would you like to test your skills in films? Of course. Films are just so hard to get into. In some ways you need to be out of work to be doing the rounds of auditions and castings. I love all the indie flicks that have come out. I just saw Little Miss Sunshine for the first time. I like the kind of edgy approach of films like Superbad and even things like The Hangover. They’re just so clever.

FAB FOUR

 We are looking to have some furniture we have inherited re-upholstered. I don’t know much about the furniture but it has curved arms, which gives it a retro feel! We would like to use some really unusual fabric as the chairs will be going into the dining room. Apart from the dining table, chairs and cabinet, the only other item of furniture in the room is a piano. Could you help inspire our choice for the fabric?

With over ten years’ experience in the interior design business, Sharon Armor is poised to answer all your design queries from DIY disasters to decorating dilemmas.

Andrew Martin has a fantastic new collection of weaves and prints that would definitely inspire your choice. The Beatles Collection shows iconic images of the ‘fab four’ with coordinating fabrics. I love the FAB4 medium multi, and think it would be fantastic on a retro chair. Elaine Cunningham Interiors sells the collection so it would be worth a visit to the showroom in Aigburth. www.andrewmartin.co.uk

Eco AWARENESS  We are looking for a floor tile for our conservatory that has green credentials and we would like a natural looking large tile if possible. Could you please help us? There is a solution available on the market, which fits your criteria perfectly. Johnson Tiles’ new range Echo has a collection of porcelain floor tiles that contain a minimum of forty percent recycled materials per tile. The company has considerably cut its kiln emissions, reduced energy use and uses recycled water. The range is available in large format tiles in five different natural colours. www.johnson-tiles.com

FUNKY FABRIC  I’ve just moved into a beautiful apartment, which I’m renting, and while I don’t want to go to the expense of decorating I would like to do something to the walls to make more of a statement. Any changes I make will have to be rectified at the end of my tenancy. Do you have any ideas? In order to receive your full deposit back at the end of your tenancy, it is important that any alterations can be easily put right. Your landlord will expect the condition of the walls to be the same as when you first moved in. With this in mind, I think the easiest way for you to add some decoration to the walls is to look at some form of wall hanging. IKEA has a fantastic fabric called Saralisa designed by Cilla Ramnek. The fabric is a large scale floral design on a black and white fabric. It would look fantastic to hang behind a sofa or chair, and the scale of the repeat would add a real focal point to your room. www.ikea.com

TABLE TALK

LUCY OLIVER HAS LUNCH WITH....

“We’re really proud of the work that has been done to regenerate that area”

general manager at Atrium, Jayne Holley

3

345 Parr Street is well known in Liverpool for its musical heritage, having played host to Diana Ross and Gwyneth Paltrow among other big names, and artists and bands are frequently to be seen enjoying a drink and a meal at the home of the famous recording studios. On this occasion, it makes an excellent meeting place for my lunch with Jayne Holley, the

develops, sells and manages the low cost home ownership programme HomeBuy and also develops properties commercially. Across the group, Vicinity has developed around 17,500 properties around the north-west with most concentrated on Merseyside, where the properties are managed by Liverpool Housing Trust (LHT), Cobalt and Beechwood, and Ballantyne

“the sumptuously prepared jerk chicken comes in a hearty portion, full of flavour” general manager at Atrium which has also played its part in ‘nourishing’ the creative heart of the city. The firm’s redevelopment work in the Georgian Quarter, Canning, has seen properties refurbished for outright sale, with the profits reinvested into the rented stock in the area and in subsidising the HomeBuy plan on behalf of Liverpool Housing Trust (LHT). Jayne commented: “We’re really proud of the work that has been done to regenerate that area, as it’s made such a positive contribution to the physical condition of the area and helped to promote a sustainable mixed tenure community.” Over starters of mixed salads, including sun dried tomato, olive, houmous and grated carrot, chickpeas and French beans, we discuss Atrium’s variety of projects since its inception in 2003. Since then, the firm has continued to place a strong emphasis on developing quality properties, often in a mixed-tenure development. Part of the Vicinity Group, Atrium

Community Housing Association. The latest of these to be launched is Forest Brook, a development of modern energy efficient and affordable family housing in Runcorn, developed in partnership with Riverside Home Ownership Atrium is also currently marketing affordable homes at Burley Place in Litherland. For our main courses, selecting from a menu of classic dishes including homemade burgers with chips and tempura battered cod with chips and mushy peas, both Jayne and I opt for the sumptuously prepared jerk chicken with spiced pilau rice and curry sauce which comes in a beautifully presented but hearty portion, full of flavour. Jayne describes the vision for Burley Place and the success story for regeneration it has become: “At this scheme, we’ve developed a Victorian factory into five houses and three flats, which are for sale on a HomeBuy basis. We also have houses for sale at Hesketh Bank, just north of Southport, for

sale under the Rural HomeBuy scheme, and properties at Lydbury Crescent and Richard Hesketh Drive in Kirkby are also shortly to be launched.” Managing the team at State House on Dale Street seems to come naturally to Jayne, whose career in property now spans 16 years, across commercial development working for Peel Holdings in Manchester, and selling properties on affordable housing schemes for LHT. Atrium offers the new build HomeBuy and a ‘staircasing’ initiative, where the buyer can purchase a percentage and pay rent on the remainder, buying additional shares over time, a welcome move in the current market conditions. Jayne adds: “We’ve seen the demand for family housing increase, with two or three bedroom properties particularly popular as mortgages are still available for these.” Those looking to purchase on a HomeBuy basis can discover if they are eligible for the criteria by contacting HomesHub, and to find out more about Atrium’s

developments in the city and the north-west they can telephone the sales hotline on 0151 708 2421. Over coffees to finish off our meal in the intimate surroundings at Parr Street, our talk turns to the diversity of the work undertaken by the housing group. Atrium is proud of having completed its first HOLD lease, enabling a young person with profound and severe learning difficulties to move into their own home and live independently. For Jayne, who in her spare time enjoys spending time with husband and her two Jack Russells, holidays, shopping and eating out, a passion for property and for helping people to find a way to achieve their dream home is evident in her outgoing personality. She added: “Since 2003, the city has really seen a change for the better, and a combination of improved leisure and retail, the move towards affordable housing and mixed tenure is improving and sustaining communities – and the future is looking very bright.”

3345 LOUNGE BAR AND RESTAURANT – 3345 PARR STREET, LIVERPOOL, L1 4JN –

Jerk chicken or jerk red snapper is a nutritious and tasty favourite – but don’t neglect the fantastic homemade desserts.

Whether it’s the relaxed atmosphere, high quality food, the price or the chance to spot a band, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Softness through the length is off set by a long weighty fringe. This seasons colours of burnt amber, cocoa brown and a sprinkle of savannah gold, highlight the disturbed texture. A band of damson on the fringe create the illusion of shine. Who would it suit? People often ask me are they too old for long hair? It’s every woman’s nightmare to feel they MUST go short or join the “Mutton dressed as lamb” brigade! I think if you sport a plait on a daily basis and you’re over 16 then yes – you’re too old. However there is a big difference between long hair and a long HAIRCUT. If your hair has a definite cut and flatters your face shape then don’t worry about it being too long. Any hairdresser worth their salt will tell you the truth if it’s not working for you. I love the weight and volume to this cut. Every hairdresser loves a bit of height and of course fringes are as always a lifesaver – sexy youthful and even better – hide lines!

Previews THEATRE, FILM AND MUSIC IN LIVERPOOL

One of the highlights of this year’s Creamfields festival has to be Deadmau5. The DJ and one man dance act never fails to disappoint with colourful staging and a fresh take on his signature costume, and following on from the May gig at Mountford Hall at Liverpool University on election day, his Creamfields set is sure to be an awesome follow-up with tracks from ‘For Lack of a Better Name’ (2009).

The advent of a third contribution to a film trilogy would usually leave critics expectantly poised above their keyboards in anticipation of a wholly unsatisfying cash-in, awkwardly stuffed with popular guest stars in order to gloss over a lack of substance. Toy Story 3 may have an abundance of new, much-loved faces (or voices) to swell the ranks of its now familiar cast, but the third instalment of the animation promises to be one of the few exceptions to the rule and with it, one of the undoubted summer blockbuster successes. The original, released a staggering 15 years ago, is rightly regarded not just as

ground breaking animation but one of the greatest motion pictures of all time. The original Pixar production still looks slick and effortless today but, as the title suggests, it is the story which is the key element of its success. The adventures of Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) who, with their colourful ensemble of fellow toys, come to life away from human gaze, is delivered with generous doses of humour and intrigue, creating a universal appeal and leaving the audience with a genuine empathy towards these animated characters. The second instalment of the adventures proved equally as popular, with established actors such as Kelsey Grammer supplementing an already excellent cast and the inclusion of stars including Michael Keaton as Ken, Whoopi Goldberg as Stretch the Octopus and Timothy Dalton as Mr Pricklepants makes Toy Story 3 an exciting prospect. With owner Andy now all grown up and off to college there promises to be much sentiment to accompany the thoughtful wit. Toy Story 3 is due for release in the UK from 23 July.

The stage version of the best selling fantasy novel ever written arrives in Liverpool in the middle of June. JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit boasts stunning effects and will be sure to intrigue fans of the classic works as they see it brought to life at The Empire theatre. The adventure follows Bilbo Baggins, who is uprooted from his cosy existence by Gandalf the Sorcerer to embark on a mystical adventure through Middle Earth, battling trolls, goblins, wolves and giant spiders along the way. The prospect of bringing this beloved story to life and doing it justice on stage represents an ambitious task and the show is likely to be one of the highlights of Liverpool’s theatre land over the coming months. The Hobbit runs at The Liverpool Empire from 8 until 13 June.

The music round up For Teenage Dirtbags everywhere, Wheatus voiced the sound of a generation, and the band is returning to the city this summer.

Halliwell, Eric Prydz and Calvin Harris at Creamfields, getting festival goers up and dancing all weekend.

With the 10th anniversary gig booked for the 02 Academy, the band will perform classics from the debut album including ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ and ‘Little Respect’ to fans on Thursday 10 June. Also lined up for music fans this summer are legendary acts Eddie Your Move 67
