Legal Advice: Taylor Wimpey’s Ground Rent Review Assistance Scheme By Natasha Tickle, Ward Gethin Archer Solicitors. Did you buy a new Leasehold property from Taylor Wimpey between 2007 and 2011? Taylor Wimpey’s Ground Rent Review Assistance Scheme – does this apply to you? If you bought a Leasehold new build property from Taylor Wimpey between 2007 and 2011, you may be aware that you are subject to a clause in your lease stating that ground rent will double every ten years. This means if your ground rent was £300 per year in 2007, by 2057 you will be paying nearly £10,000. As time goes on this will affect the saleability of the property. Following a comprehensive review which looked at the concerns regarding the saleability and mortgageability of properties with this kind of lease, Taylor Wimpey have introduced a scheme (Ground Rent Review Assistance Scheme) whereby the terms of these leases will be changed to an inflation-linked system. They have set aside £130 million to cover the cost of this and any legal costs incurred. Taylor Wimpey says: “It is clear from our review that the impact of these doubling rent review clauses is now causing some of our customers understandable concern. We acknowledge that the introduction of these doubling clauses was not consistent with our high standards of customer service and we are sorry for the unintended financial consequence and concern that they are causing.” How will this be done? The ten-year doubling lease will be converted into one with an RPI (Retail Prices Index) based structure. This will see the ground rent rise in line with inflation, rather than doubling every ten years. RPI linked leases are nationally recognised and are a long-established measure and is the most commonly used index for price increases across the leasehold residential sector. In some cases, Taylor Wimpey has sold on the freeholds to these properties to third parties and says that it has reached agreements with the majority of freeholders to enable the majority of customers with ten-year doubling leases to convert to the RPI-based lease. They are in continual negotiation with other freeholders and state that discussions are progressing well and they are optimistic that they will be able to reach agreements that will help all customers. If agreements cannot be reached, it will “pursue other avenues to help our customers’. Do you qualify? This assistance scheme is only open to homeowners who purchased their property directly from Taylor Wimpey. Anyone who has brought their home from the original purchaser does not qualify for this scheme. Taylor Wimpey have advised that if you are not the original buyer, you should contact your current freeholder directly to discuss your options. How can Ward Gethin Archer help? Ward Gethin Archer are currently assisting clients to have their Leases varied to include the new rent review provisions, if you qualify for the scheme as an original purchaser from Taylor Wimpey, then Taylor Wimpey will cover your legal costs up to a maximum of £750 inclusive of VAT and disbursements. Ward Gethin Archer are pleased to offer a fixed fee service which is most instances will mean that there are no additional fees for you to pay as they will be covered by Taylor Wimpey. If you do not qualify the scheme then we are still happy to discuss any concerns you may have about the terms of your Lease and discuss the best course of action for you. If you think that you may be affected or want other help or advice about your Leasehold property then call Natasha Tickle, one of our property experts on 01553 667239

Zoopla: Phil Spencer’s Top Tops: By Phil Spencer, Property expert. 7 Things you’ve got to love in a new home Letting you head rule your heart is often sage advice when it comes to buying property. But there are a few key decisions where emotions should hold sway. Choosing your dream home is a bit like trying to find the perfect partner. There are pros and cons to each, but on certain aspects you need to follow your heart. Such as... 1. The view If your life-long dream is to look over a lake from your living room armchair, then don't abandon it completely. Unless the Local Authority search states anything to the contrary, the view from a home is something that’s set to remain for a long time. So if a view matters to you, then make sure it's love at first sight. 2. The natural light Just like with a partner, the things you’ll need to love about a property are the things you can’t change about it. And one of the big ones is natural light. So you're not caught out, arrange viewings for different times of day and take note of which rooms get the most natural light and when. But always bear in mind that décor, such as dark walls, heavy curtains or poor lighting can make the home appear darker than it should be. 3. The garden If you’ll be spending a lot of time enjoying the garden, find a home that has one you love (for better or worse). South-facing will get the most sunlight throughout the day, and if you're unsure of the aspect, a handy tip is to check with the compass on your smartphone at the viewing. East-facing gardens will suit early risers as they get most sunlight in the mornings. And, if you’re most likely to be in the garden in the afternoons or evenings, opt for west facing. A great garden can easily add the same value as an extra room. But while you can always make it look more attractive, it won't change size unless you can buy more land. 4. The style There is only so much you can change about a property's structure. If you love the high ceilings of Georgian architecture, or long for the cosy comfort of an open fire, then buying a functional new build is never going to meet your style requirements. You'll likely need to compromise on some features, but if you cannot stand a particular style of home, then living there is only likely to fuel further resentment - no matter how practical a purchase it might seem. 5. The storage Not the sexiest proposition to obsess over, but if your new home does not have the space to store your beloved belongings, then it's going to be a constant source of frustration. And it's not always easily rectified. You might pledge to de-clutter your wardrobe, but what about the large family heirlooms you feel emotionally attached to and want on display? And it's not just inside the property. If you're short of parking options, or have nowhere to stash the bicycle you commute on every day, then life can quickly become wearing. 6. The location You might find a property with all these attributes. But if it’s not ‘in the right place’, the relationship’s going nowhere. You’ll also need to be 100% comfortable with the time it takes to get to whatever’s important to you – be it the shops, local school, train station or pub. Remember, if this is your 'forever' home, priorities are likely to change as life evolves. 7. The ‘feeling’ Of course, the most important aspect of finding a person or property is how they make you FEEL. So trust your instincts and follow your heart. To paraphrase an old adage: "It's better to have loved once than never to have loved at all."

Long Sutton & District Civic Society: The circus comes to town. By Tim Machin, Society Chairman. During the sunlit summers of long ago that we now call childhood, one had to invent one's own amusements. In my case, the end of the War also brought into my circle of interest an entertainment that was to dominate my dreams until I left school: the circus. Mostly, in our case, it was Fossett, Sanger or Rosaire, but the little shows would turn up in Long Sutton every summer, regular as clockwork, sometimes three or four a year. They usually found a willing audience, though by the early 1950s, other interests (cars, television, holidays) were taking over and enchantment with the Big Top was coming to an end. I did not recognise this at the time, but it was plain even to me that some of the shows were struggling. The numbers of animals and acts were reducing, and recorded music was replacing the circus bands. In our town the key site for any visiting circus - or funfair, for that matter - was Cinder Ash field, a public area and popular walk next door to the recreation ground; a pleasant tree-circled sward approached from the town side by a little bridge which crossed a perennially dry ditch. The circus vans and lorries had to approach from the other side; but once there, they fitted snugly into the leafy scene. We would study the circus posters plastered around town and work out on which day the first vehicles, the tent transporters, would be arriving. Then, we would hover in the background while the vehicles and caravans sorted themselves out, perhaps enjoying the brief glimpse of a couple of listless lions in a wheeled cage, some of the horses, or very occasionally, spotting an elephant stretching its legs in the sunshine. We were looking for jobs, of course; volunteer jobs which, if we were fortunate, might lead to a free ticket. The trick was to wait and keep our distance until the king poles had been hauled upright and secured, and the Big Top canvas sections had been unloaded, sorted, and laid flat in position on the ground. This was the signal for us to move in closer and start chatting to the roustabouts. The circus folk had a very boring job ahead of them. They had to lace all the panels together before they could be hoisted up the king poles, and it was a tedious business. So this was the point when, if we were lucky, they would beckon us across and ask for assistance. You had to start at the top end of two canvas panels and then, on one's knees, push one rope loop through the loop on the opposite side, and so on all the way down until the two panels were laced together. Then when the job was finished and the Big Top had been hoisted and secured, they would (sometimes) reward us, either with a closer look at the animals, some sweets, or better still, a free ticket for one of the performances. Small beer nowadays, of course, but something looked upon at the time as a major experience. From the memoirs of Bruce Robinson, author of An Illustrated History of Long Sutton Lincolnshire.
