The Windmill

Welcome Hello and welcome to this, the fifth issue of The Windmill. Another milestone for us is that we opened our doors seven years ago this month. Our mission was to become the most trusted estate agent in Billericay. We have handled hundreds of property sales and received many many wonderful thanks and testimonials. Much of our work, I am pleased to report, is repeat business and recommendations so thank you to you all for your support over this time.

Congratulations to Sue Heazel who won our Facebook Easter Hamper competition, a well deserved winner and well known in the area. I would also like to wish Dizzy Ducks Day Nurseries good luck with the opening of the After School’s Club at Great Burstead Church Hall in Church Street. Good luck also to Felix, our newest restaurant in the High Street who have moved into the former fishmongers in Chapel Street. This month we are pleased to support South Green Infant, Nursery and Junior School Fete as well as the Great Burstead Church Fete. These are two very good causes and I hope their respective days are a great success. I am pleased to announce that we have joined forces with Cancer

Windmill The The Windmill

Are we becoming a nation of hoarders? I’m sure we would all admit to having some items of clothing we have not worn for a while, or no longer need. To avoid us becoming a nation of hoarders here’s some friendly advice on what to do with those items we no longer need? A survey by market research group ICM, reveals that the worst culprits are the over 65s, with one in ten overwhelmed by the number of items in their home and one in 20 admitting to tripping over clutter. According to the survey, men are more ruthless in eventually tackling the mountains of unwanted stuff, with 20% having a clear out less than every three years, against just 10% of women. The study also found that 42% of people refuse to part with unwanted items, simply because they believe it’s too much hassle. But don’t worry help is at hand. Here at Tyler Estates, we have come up with a scheme to collect unwanted items and deliver them to local charities. We are calling it “The give to a good cause scheme.” Depending on the items donated, we will share them between St Lukes Hospice, Basildon Homeless Project and Cancer Research.

There are several options available to you when having a clear out: •R  ecycle unwanted items by offering them to friends and family. •S  ell them on Ebay or other second hand websites. • Donate items to local charity shops. • Make use of the Councils special collection scheme.

We can collect anything that is in good condition and you no longer need, from books and clothes to furniture. Simply give us a call on 01277 626181 and we will collect the items and pass them on to a selection of charities.

Can I chop down a tree in my garden? There are lots of reasons to love trees but occasionally it may be necessary to reduce the size of a tree or remove it all together. Some trees are protected by legislation, and it is essential that you establish the legal status of trees prior to carrying out any work. Unauthorised work to protected trees could lead to prosecution, resulting in enforcement action such as fines or a criminal record. Tree Preservation Orders, Conservation Areas, Planning Conditions, Felling Licenses or Restrictive Covenants legally protect many trees in the UK. The first step to make sure you stay within the law is to contact Basildon Council’s Planning Department and see if the tree is subject to a TPO (Tree Preservation Order). A TPO is a written order stating what can or cannot be done. It can be for a single tree or a collection of trees. The order makes it a criminal offence with unlimited fines payable to cut down, top, lop, uproot, willfully damage or willfully destroy a tree protected by that order, or to cause or permit such actions, without the council’s permission. To make an application to carry out tree works you will need to complete an application form and submit it to the council. The form can either be submitted through the Planning Portal or directly. The Council will reply to you with their decision. This could take up to 8 weeks. If you disagree with the council’s decision, you then have the right to appeal.

Japanese Knotweed

and what to do if you have it Japanese Knotweed, as you may guess, originated in eastern Asia. It’s natural habitat is on the side of volcanoes but it has spread into populated areas and has flourished on waste ground. It was introduced to Britain by the Victorians as an ornamental plant and cattle feed. Unfortunately, Japanese Knotweed has no natural enemies in Britain to keep it in check. No wildlife eat it and no other plants can compete with its exponential growth. This means the invasive weed has flourished to extreme proportions across Scotland and the rest of the UK. Experts have estimated it costs the country £166 million annually. The biggest problems are caused when Japanese Knotweed comes into contact with our homes and properties. The rhizome (or root) system can extend up to 2m in depth and 7m in all directions. These rhizomes can squeeze through the smallest cracks in masonry and concrete, posing a serious threat to foundations and drains. This damage can make buildings structurally unsound and has led to some panic among mortgage lenders . The presence of Japanese Knotweed can be noted on a Homebuyer’s Survey and reported to the lender. If you find Japanese Knotweed on your property you should begin treatment as soon as possible. The larger the infestation, the more damage it can cause to foundations and the more difficult it is to eradicate from your land. A professional Japanese Knotweed herbicide treatment programme can last up to 5 years. Continually evaluate the area after the initial chemical treatment process has been completed to ensure it is not growing back. Ensure you get to the root of the problem, as the roots can go down to 2m. If you miss a piece, it will grow back into a new plant and potentially spread the infestation even further. Japanese Knotweed is highly destructive. You must make sure that the weed does not spread onto neighbouring land or properties. Although it is very destructive, it is not poisonous or harmful to touch. Touching Japanese Knotweed can not harm you. The only risk of dealing with and touching the plant, is that you could cause it to spread further just by pulling it out. When you come to sell your property you should declare that you have had a problem with Knotweed as you may need to show an official certificate of removal to your buyers’ solicitor.

Extending your property under Permitted Development You can often extend or add to your house without the need to apply for planning permission provided you meet a set of limits and conditions. The regime for what is allowed without planning permission applies largely to the dimensions of the proposed extension, its position on the house and its proximity to your boundaries. You will also need to apply for planning permission if more than half the area of land around the “original house” would be covered by additions or other buildings.

• A volume allowance of 40 cubic metres additional roof space for terraced houses*

So what is covered under Permitted Development?

• Roof extensions not to be permitted development in designated areas**

Garages can be built in your garden or on the land around your house without the need to apply for planning permission. However, permission will be required in certain circumstances. It is always a good idea to check with the local planning department at Basildon Council before you start any work in or around your property. You don’t need planning permission to build or replace a driveway of any size if you use permeable (or porous) surfacing eg gravel, permeable concrete block paving or porous asphalt and the rainwater flows to a lawn or border to drain naturally. If you cover more than five square metres using traditional materials that don’t let water through, you will need planning permission. These rules apply to the area of land between the front walls of the house and the highway.

• Roof extensions, apart from hip to gable ones, to be set back, as far as practicable, at least 20cm from the original eaves

We are often called in to value homes before or after a loft conversion. A loft conversion is considered to be a permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions:

6

• A volume allowance of 50 cubic metres additional roof space for detached and semidetached houses* • No extension beyond the plane of the existing roof slope of the principal elevation that fronts the highway • No extension to be higher than the highest part of the roof • Materials to be similar in appearance to the existing house • No verandas, balconies or raised platforms • Side-facing windows to be obscure-glazed; any opening to be 1.7m above the floor

beyond the rear wall of the original house* by more than three metres for an attached house or by four metres for a detached house. •T  hese increased limits (between 3m and 6m and between 4m and 8m respectively) are subject to the prior notification of the proposal to the Local Planning Authority and the implementation of a neighbour consultation scheme. If objections are received, the proposal might not be allowed. • The Maximum height of a single-storey rear extension of four metres. For further information please visit the planning portal website. Below is a list of works that can generally be carried out under Permitted Development rules:1

Why isn’t my home selling? If your home is on the market for sale and you are getting fewer viewings than you would like. There could be something you need to do or need to stop doing to attract that elusive buyer? With the help of these tips, we may be able to get you moving .

3. Is your property priced correctly? We’ve also seen a number of local properties overpriced. This can be for a number of reasons - Perhaps your agent has flattered you with an inflated price to market your home; or maybe you have decided on a price you need to obtain to allow you to move. The internet gives us a world of instant property information. Being able to regularly check house prices on property websites has for some, become a hobby. Because of this, buyers often already have some knowledge of local property values.

1. Has your home got kerb appeal?

To get your property priced correctly, ask your agent for comparable properties recently sold in your area.

Whilst there is no doubt that rightmove.co.uk is the most well known and well used website for looking at properties, there are a couple of other sites worth visiting too. Zoopla.co.uk and primelocation.co.uk are owned by the same company and have a very strong presence in London. We receive a number of viewing requests from East London and around the Romford area from buyers looking to move east and they are looking on Zoopla. If your agent is not on Zoopla, you could be missing out on potential viewings.

The best advice I can give is to request that your agent carries out the viewings. After all what are you paying your agent for? We like to show all our buyers around our properties, it is what we do best. We discuss the area, the property, handle any concerns or mis-conceptions and we get to know our buyer’s needs during the viewing.

CLS Money: Time to remortgage? Summer is finally here and many of us are taking full advantage of the longer days, by spending time outdoors and going on our holidays. A bit of extra cash in your pocket would certainly come in handy, so why not reduce your largest monthly expenditure and remortgage? Saving money on your mortgage could help you to; make some long awaited home improvements, purchase additional property or reduce your current mortgage term. There are a number of reasons why you might want to remortgage, and here’s our top reasons to do so this summer:

Need a new mortgage deal? Most of the best mortgage deals only last for a short time, so when your current deal expires, your lender will move you to a new deal, which will likely be a higher rate and therefore more expensive! To avoid this, start looking for a new deal around 3 months before it is due to finish - We can certainly help you with this!

The the

Looking to borrow more? Many people choose to remortgage their homes in order to fund home DIY projects or pay off their debts. It’s a great way to raise money cheaply on low rates but remember, your new lender will likely want to know how you will spend the extra cash, and are more likely to approve of you spending the cash on buying a new car, than funding a new business venture.

Want a better rate? If you are currently tied into a deal but want a better rate, you will need to check if repaying your mortgage early will incur an exit fee and/or early repayment charges. You may also need to pay additional costs such as; an arrangement fee to your new lender for setting up the mortgage and valuation and legal fees - Part of our remortgage service is to check that a new mortgage deal would be the best option for you, so we carry out all the necessary checks for you.

Your home’s value has rocketed! If the value of your home has increased significantly since you took out your mortgage, remortgaging could enable you to gain access to much lower rates and

save you money! As with every remortgage you will need to do your sums, but it’s certainly worth exploring and we are at hand to help!

Want to overpay? You may have had a pay rise or inherited some money and want to overpay or pay a lump sum off your mortgage, but can’t with your current deal. Remortgaging could make this possible and also enable you to reduce your loan size and mortgage term. As with any remortgage, you will need to be beware of any potential early repayment fees and compare this to how much you’ll save with a new, lower mortgage, which we can take care of for you.

Need a free mortgage review? Mortgage rates are at record lows and getting a free review from one of our local mortgage brokers, could help to save you hundreds of pounds each month! Our expert advisers will talk you through all your available options and compare thousands of deals, to ensure that you get the right remortgage product for your needs. If you choose to proceed with your application, we will also handle all the necessary paperwork, removing the stress and hassle from you.

Looking to rent out your property? At Tyler Estates, we are finding that more local residents are becoming accidental landlords; often having been left a property by a relative or by possessing legal power of attorney that involves a property. In either case the residents may opt to rent out the property. And if the relative-owner is in need of care, the rent could be used to cover care home fees. Many of these landlords have approached us for advice and we have been more than happy to take them step by step, through the process and find the best tenants for their individual situation. Over the past few years, we have also seen a rise in the regulations that must be adhered to in order to keep landlords on the right side of the law . One such regulation, is a

‘Right to Rent’ check. Before the start of any new tenancy the landlord must check all tenants aged 18 and over. The landlord must establish that the tenant or lodger has a right to legally rent a residential property in England. All tenants must be checked, as it is against the law to only check people who you think are not British citizens. If the tenant is only allowed to stay in the UK for a limited time, the landlord needs to do the check in the 28 days before the start of the tenancy. Other new regulations include ensuring there are smoke alarms on each floor of the property including common

areas, carbon monoxide alarms where solid fuel is used and changes to the issuing of a Section 21 notice, which includes tenant eviction. If you are considering renting out your property and would like more help and advice please get in touch.

Current rental values in Billericay The chart opposite shows the average rental prices in Billericay for different types of properties. The most popular type of rental property is a 2 bedroom flat which would be let for around £1,150- £1,200pcm. If you were looking to rent a 3 bedroom house it would be in the region of £1,400£1,500pcm, while a 4 bedroom house would be over £1600 per month.

Check you are on a low interest rate. There are so many mortgage products available now and they change almost weekly. By switching to a lower rate you could potentially save several hundred pounds a year.

Invite friends round and all bring a dish, rather than paying for expensive meals out. You can spice up the evening by having a theme. This could result in a saving of £100 a week.

Cancel that gym membership and take up jogging around the local park or take part in a park run scheme. If you enjoy swimming it would be cheaper to use the local council swimming pool and pay as you go.

It’s every homeowner’s goal to be mortgage free. And for the majority of people this is their biggest debt. Here we look at 10 easy steps you can follow to help reduce and ultimately pay off your mortgage.

If you wear contact lenses and pay a monthly subscription, cancel it and invest in a pair of glasses. This could save you £250 a year.

Go shopping with a list. Research suggests we impulse buy when we do not have a list and never go food shopping on an empty stomach, we tend to buy more.

12

When possible try to walk, rather than drive, short journeys, getting fitter as well as saving money on fuel.

10 10 If you live near a station you could rent out your parking space on the drive netting you around £80 a month.

Another top tip would be to make overpayments on your monthly mortgage, in order to reduce the total amount left to pay and reduce the interest charged.
