Advertising keeps your business visible and first choice

to new and returning customers We look after our Advertisers!

Invest in your success! Consistent advertising gives you an advantage over competitors who reduce or eliminate their advertising. A survey of more than 3,000 companies found that advertisers who expanded or at least maintained a steady level of advertising over a five-year period saw their sales increase an average of 100%, whereas companies that reduced advertising grew at less than half that rate.

The Express policy...

A maximum of 3 of the same type of businesses, (with the exception of bars and restaurants). We also guarantee to not actively seek the same type of business resulting in many of our advertisers having exclusivity!

New decade, new home?

the Selling Process simplified! MacNamara King takes the hard work out of moving home So, you’ve found a buyer, agreed a price and asked us to act for you in the conveyancing, so what happens next? Every situation is different, but here are some general guidelines: We will send you an introductory letter and some enquiry forms to complete. We will need to see your ID and will ask you for some money on account. It is very important at this stage for you to make sure that you’ve gathered together, and given to us, any planning or building control documents for work which might have been done, as well as any paperwork you were given when you bought the house. We will write to your current mortgage lender and ask them for an idea of your current loan, together with any deeds they may have. We obtain a copy of the Land Registry documents and prepare a draft contract. We send out the draft contract, Land Registry information and your completed enquiry forms to your buyer’s conveyancer. This package of contract papers will hopefully answer most of the obvious questions that the buyer and their conveyancer have about the property. They may write to use with other queries or issues and we will probably ask you to help us with some of them if the answers aren’t clear. Sometimes the questions are about the practical aspects of the property, so we’d find it hard to answer them without your help! We will ask you to sign the contract and any other required documents so that we are ready. They are not legally binding until exchange, however. When everyone in the chain is ready, a completion (moving) date can be agreed. It sometimes takes up to 5 days for mortgage lenders to process the funds request so the completion date will be agreed with this in mind. It also has to be a weekday, not a weekend. Then contracts are formally exchanged by the conveyancers involved. This involves a kind of ‘telephonic Seebetween page conveyancers 2 for more details! handshake’ – you do not need

for just £37.50

No Vat

to be present. We would usually ask for your authority to exchange contracts on the day itself, however, so you may need to be contactable. Once Contracts are exchanged you are legally committed to the move, and you can now make removal arrangements, contact the utility providers and so on. If something changes at the property, just keep us informed.

Then, before completion:

• We obtain a settlement figure for any existing mortgages or loans that you have on your property. They must all be removed and paid off on the completion date. • We ask your estate agent to tell us how much they are charging you • We calculate the financial statement which shows you how much you will receive and where the rest of the money is going. You can decide at that stage who you would like us to give the money to you. • We also make sure there’s nothing fraudulent going on with the conveyancers acting for the buyer, before they hand over a load of (potentially dodgy) money! • Now we’ve reached the magical day when you have to move all of your worldly possessions out by lunchtime and hand the keys in to the estate agents. It is a good idea to take meter readings and have a good look around the property as you leave. Make sure you have taken everything that you said you would take (and left everything you said you would leave), and any rubbish. Please try to leave the house in a clean and tidy condition. If you have taken things off the walls then you must fix any damage, and you should leave a flex, rose and bulb if you take light fittings. We find that most post-completion disputes are started off by the buyers being disappointed that the property wasn’t how they’d expected to find it.


• We will receive the balance of the price of the property t:01926 815935 family matters

• We repay your mortgage and pay your estate agent and we also deduct our fees.

Housework getting you down?

• We forward the remaining funds to you, either as a cheque or to the bank account you have told us about

We are a dependable and trustworthy family run business, offering domestic house cleaning from weekly to one off cleans. We also provide end of tenancy cleaning.

• We forward the deeds and other documents to your buyer’s conveyancer. • A few weeks after completion we will write to you to confirm that everything’s been dealt with so please make sure you let us have your forwarding address. You should also think about checking, changing or making a Will at this stage, just so that everything is up-to-date and in order. I hope you’ve found this helpful, but don’t forget that every situation is unique, and sometimes things don’t go to plan – the trick is to keep calm and give us a call!

Testimonial Dear Ian

Just a note to say a big thank you to you and your team at Doors and Drawers. The Kitchen refurb project was handled expertly and professionally from start to finish from the advice and support in creating the design to the selection of work tops and units. The installation including a major floor retile was carried out on time with the minimum of disruption and quality, finish and attention to detail was excellent. Many thanks to Doors and Drawers Simon and Amy Ward Crick Near Rugby

Southam & District Lions enable Father Christmas to meet many more children this year. Because Southam and some of the surrounding villages have had a large increase in housing Father Christmas could not visit all of the locations covered in previous years. Instead he stopped at 4 or 5 designated places each evening. The local residents were advised where these would be and what time Santa would arrive there. This worked very well.

loan of a Discovery to tow the sleigh and transport the ‘elves’ (Lion Club members and other volunteers) between locations. Meanwhile Santa’s elves toured the vicinity knocking on doors and receiving donations from the residents, who gave generously. The charity chosen to benefit from these donations this year is the Leamington-based Lily Mae Foundation, which supports parents and families after the loss of a baby. Only one evening venture was cancelled due to bad weather, otherwise the new schedule worked very successfully, and Father Christmas was able to meet many more children this year. Very well done to all the Lions, their ladies and other volunteers in braving the weather to take Santa along to meet the children and especially to Lions Malcolm Jakeway, Steve Hoyle & Terry Grey for devising such an effective schedule.
