Q&A

ASKTHEEXPERT

Q

Is it a good idea to buy a flat above a shop or supermarket?

We’re growing on our success...

Marc Wiehe, Director Winkworth Streatham and Herne Hill

B

uying a property above a shop can be an excellent proposition: it is often a much more affordable way to own property in your first choice of area. Many lenders are reluctant to lend on flats above shops, therefore there’s limited choice for finance – this is the main reason why these properties are much more affordable than a similar flat in a residential street nearby in the first place. The lease or commercial usage of the shop is vital to understand – this will advise you what type of shop can be run, the business hours and any potential nuisance issues. Watch out in particular for dry cleaners, restaurants, takeaways and convenience stores. Do bear in mind that just because you’ve got, say, a nice quiet coffee shop downstairs serving your favourite lattes and muffins now, it doesn’t mean it’ll always be there! Above any commercial premises which have a higher risk of fire or security problems, you may find that your insurance premium is more expensive. Mixed commercial/residential use may mean you could end up with a higher service charge too. Independent access from the street is really important. Consider parking too: could customers of the shop use that space when they pop to the shop or could they block your access by parking on the street outside? Do your homework and don’t be put off!

etflix’s award-winning series The Crown has brought the love story of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor to life again. While the abdication crisis was at its height the then Edward VII and Mrs Simpson found sanctuary in the mansion built for the industrialist Frank Parkinson in the 1930s. It was later transformed into a collection of apartments and penthouses, set in 20 acres of beautiful parkland. A luxurious 3-bedroom duplex apartment in The Garden House at Charters in Sunningdale is available to rent at £8,500 pcm. Savills Sunningdale 01344 295384.

nmodernised homes can sell at cracking discounts compared to the newly primped and painted. For example an unmodernised three-bedroom house might sell for £850,000 which will mean paying stamp duty of £32,500. Nearby a similar house that has four bedrooms and has been totally renovated could go for £1.5 million, with stamp duty of £93,750 payable. Hence the sudden appeal of a doer-upper where buyers can either spend the savings in stamp duty on immediate renovations or can move in and update over time. Sam Sproston, of Knight Frank, Wandsworth Common, says: “One option for buyers are ‘tired’ houses. You can live in them while you save up for the refurbishments and you can live in the space prior to making changes ensuring you make the right choices when it comes to redesigning the living space. Many buyers I know prefer this route and should they have a new-born baby and can’t afford to have two mortgages; it provides an opportunity to get settled.” Houses tend to come in three categories: those that have been done up to the nines, known as turn-keys because all the buyer has to do it to unlock the front door and move their furniture inside. These are popular with money-rich but time-poor people. Other buyers resent paying top dollar for a house that is in perfect condition but maybe not quite to their taste. They like to go for homes that have been well maintained but are not freshly painted, newly wired with bathrooms and kitchens installed within the year. lose to Wandsworth Common this five-bedroom house has 3,300 The third type of buyers looks for a project: square feet of space and a 78-foot south-facing garden. a tatty looking home with kitchen and The house opens into a deep, wide entrance hall.

HEADS-UP PAYDAY

ATLANTIC CHALLENGE

H

Wandsworth is to receive a payment of more than £13million from the Government after seeing one of the highest numbers of new homes built in London, including the second largest total of affordable housing. The New Homes Bonus payment comes after 1,923 newly built and formerly empty properties were delivered in the borough last year and will be spent on frontline services and helping keep Council Tax low. It’s the capital’s fifth highest number of homes for the 12-month period, including 486 for low cost rent and shared ownership, and with 43 empty homes brought back into use. Developments contributing to this annual total include Nine Elms, in Battersea, set to deliver 4,000 affordable homes in the coming years, and housing association sites across the borough. Cllr Paul Ellis, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “This is further evidence that our approach of enabling development gets results, with more and more homes for low cost home ownership and for below market rent being built as a result.” As part of the council’s Aspirations programme, 3,000 new homes for shared ownership, social renting, low cost rent, market rent and for sale are to be built by the council and partners at two major estate regeneration schemes in Roehampton and Battersea. In addition, 300 new council homes are to be built in the next three to five years. The council’s housing strategy target is to ensure a minimum of 18,000 homes are built in Wandsworth during the next ten years, with a high number of affordable homes. To check eligibility for affordable housing: www.wandsworth. gov.uk/sharedownership/housesales@wandsworth.gov.uk or (020) 8871 6016.

Lauristons are celebrating the relocation of their flagship office in Wimbledon to new larger premises on the other side of Wimbledon Hill Road. Matthew Payne, Managing Director says: “We are now residing at number 53. Our Wimbledon office has always been a market leader in the area. With an ever-expanding business and the size of the teams we need to offer the right level of attention to all our clients and customers, meant that the move to a bigger unit had been necessary for a while, but finding the right one was always going to be the challenge. “Whilst our previous office had the benefit of being on the corner and had been our home for some time, it had become cramped and had served its purpose. “As with any new home, until you have settled in you are never really sure what it will be like, but now the refurbishments are complete and we have been in place for a month now, the guys are delighted with the new space. It’s been interesting, too, to see how many of our customers have come in just to congratulate us on the move, and wish us well for 2017.”

WORD ON THE STREET SHOULD THERE BE A STAMP DUTY CONCESSION IN THE BUDGET ON MARCH 8? SAM SPROSTON KNIGHT FRANK

CROYDONCHEER

I think it is fair to say that we would all love to pay less tax, for everything. Stamp Duty has only ever gone up and to me the idea of it coming down seems wishful thinking. Having said that, with transaction numbers falling, focus could turn again to it and to the 3% surcharge for second homes. Over all the cost of buying in the UK is still mid-level in terms of transaction and holding taxes vs. comparable prime market purchases around the globe. Singapore and Hong Kong are the most expensive with 19% and 22.4% purchase taxes respectively.

Property prices in Croydon have risen steadily over the past few years. It’s now one of London’s hotspots. Last year alone saw an 18% rise in house prices thanks partly to a £1bn regeneration scheme of the town centre. The regeneration project will bring new jobs and facilities, including two new shopping centres.

NEWHOMESUPDATE John Khaje’Nouri, Director of Robert Holmes & Company spotlights new developments in Coombe

T

he prestigious private roads of the Coombe Hill Estate are set to be this year’s ‘hot spot’ for buyers seeking substantial detached luxury new-build properties, with generous and secluded gardens, in a semi-rural location which offers good schools and decent commuting links. Such a shopping list would have, until recently, entailed travelling down the A3 to Cobham, Oxshott or St George’s Hill, Weybridge. However, many purchasers are realising the merits of Coombe Hill, which offers a very similar lifestyle in a secure private estate, but in a closer location to central London with Richmond Park within walking distance and Kingston and Wimbledon Village nearby. Coombe Hill and Kingston Hill found favour with Victorian industrialists who chose to construct their impressive new houses in this leafy oasis. In a similar vein, estate houses, which have been in the same family for 30 or 40 years, are now being sold and redeveloped to offer 21st Century living. Several such prestigious new-build properties are being marketed for sale by Robert Holmes this year, including three newly-launched family houses in Greenwood Park, an exclusive cul-de-sac of detached residences, by luxury design and build company Visu Verum. Traditional facades are complemented by inspired contemporary interior design. Each house offers over 5,000 sq ft of bespoke and luxurious accommodation, with prices starting at £4.25 million. There is also a select number of unique ‘one-off’ developments including a six-bedroom classically-styled house of some 5,500 sq ft in Golf Club Drive in the heart of the estate. As the name suggests, the house is in within ‘putting’ distance of the highly-rated Coombe Hill Golf Club and comprises six bedrooms, including three bedroom suites, two formal reception rooms and a ‘super room’ with Smallbone kitchen, breakfast and family room. The asking price is £4.5 million. Nearby ‘Woodcroft’ is another newly-completed ambassadorial-style property, built to the highest standards by renowned developer Avicom Homes. Priced at £5.975 million, Woodcroft provides over 7,000 sq ft of luxurious accommodation, including a magnificent galleried entrance hall and a stunning kitchen/breakfast/dining super room, set in grounds of nearly half an acre. Due to increased demand, we will soon be opening our new offices for Coombe and Kingston Hill located at 360 Coombe Lane SW20 ORJ. For further details visit www.robertholmes.co.uk

ust five minutes from Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common this stunning newly built home offers the seclusion and luxury of country life within 30 minutes from central London. Asquith House is set within Coombe Estate and is set to outshine all the exclusive estate’s grand houses. Built by Q Developments, the house has seven bedrooms, formal and informal reception rooms, more than half an acre of landscaped gardens, a bespoke David Linley kitchen, air conditioning, security systems, a 14-meter indoor swimming pool, sauna, fitness suite, entertainment room, wine cellar, games room and views over the golf course. Moreover it is close to three exceptional independent schools.

VILLAGELIVING V

illage living is on the rise in London, with more self-contained communities becoming established across the capital. One area seeing a strong rejuvenation in village living is Kennington. This well connected area now enjoys the benefits of organisations such as the ‘Friends of Kennington Park’ looking after the local resources, while the weekly farmers market sells produce from the area – of which the Bee Urban honey is a particular best seller. Situated just off Kennington Park Road, L&Q’s St Agnes Place development consists of luxury three and four bedroom townhouses, perfect for young families, downsizers and those looking to make the most of the local amenities. Within walking distance of Crampton Primary and Lilian Baylis Technology School, residents can also enjoy the newly refurbished pub and theatre The White Bear, while Kennington Road’s selection of friendly cafes, restaurants and bars are often frequented by locals. There are just two townhouses remaining and stamp duty is paid on both properties – one 3-bed, one 4-bed. Both plots come with off street parking and a garden. Reminiscent of the original period charm of Kennington, the townhouses feature a Georgian-inspired exterior, complemented by a highly modern internal specification. The three and four bedroom homes boast distinctive Laura Ashley Symphony fitted Harwood kitchens in luxe clay and chalk shades, with the striking Falmec glass and stainless steel extractor acting as a unique focal point. Kitchens have been designed with practical and sociable family living in mind and come equipped with American style fridge freezers with an integrated wine cooler. There is generous space for guests in the dining area, which opens out onto the stylish up-lit decking, perfect for outdoor entertaining.

RISINGSTAR

A property developer has used all his knowledge and experience to take a Victorian house in Clapham from dilapidated to deeply desirable WORDS: JENNY KNIGHT

A

s the son of an estate agent and an interior designer, it was almost inevitable that James Verschoyle would end up working in the property world. And sure enough, after a period as an estate agent he turned his hand to property development. His latest project is a beautifully presented, period, three-bedroom house in Clapham Old town, a short walk from the wide open spaces of Clapham Common. He says: My father was chairman of Hamptons and I always had holiday jobs working for them. My sister became an interior designer and I shadowed my father to do a few deals and work together but now I am on my own with my company JSV Estates Ltd. It was a natural progression. The Clapham Old town project took about six months and has resulted in a stunning home – dating back to 1860 – with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two reception rooms. But when James first saw the house it was in a state of dereliction. “There was a tree growing out of one bedroom wall. The electricity had been cut off and we had to use torches to look round. Everything was black. It was in a terrible state and the agent was pretty shocked. Knowing how valuable London property is it was bizarre that it had been left to get into that state. There was dust and chaos everywhere.” It wasn’t a house that a normal buyer would want but for a developer it offered huge attractions. “It has a long garden which was overgrown but there was scope to extend the house and turn it into something very slick and modern, even though it was a bit of a challenge.” James had the house rewired and the joists strengthened. He extended out to the side to create a first class kitchen and opened up the downstairs to create a feeling of flow and space instead of keeping the collection of tiny rooms. He put in an en-suite bathroom for the master bedroom and reduced the size of the third bedroom slightly, to create a large family bathroom. Downstairs benefits from under-floor heating to all the spacious open plan living space and to the high-tech kitchen. The garden has been tamed and planted up with a formal look consisting mainly of lawn trimmed with box trees. At the bottom of the garden James has installed a fully heated and insulated home office or gym. Now it is just the combination of classic Victorian flat fronted house with a stunning modern interior that buyers hope to find.

With mortgage rates still looking incredibly cheap, and some great products out there it is worth checking with an independent mortgage broker as to whether you could qualify for a better deal. If you are part way through a fixed period or the introductory period on a base-rate tracker, then it may not be worth switching. But if you have slipped onto your lender’s standard variable rate (SVR) you are probably paying more than you need to. If you are concerned that interest rates may rise this year, and you can’t afford to be wrong then a fixed rate makes a lot of sense. With two-year fixes available for less than 1.5 per cent and five-year fixes for less than 2 per cent, there are some very attractive deals out there. Those borrowers who come to the end of a fixed rate or base-rate tracker offer period this year should plan ahead, making a diary note six months before it finishes so that you have time to find a new deal before moving onto the higher SVR.

House prices rose on average by 2.5 per cent in the last quarter of 2016, according to figures from the Halifax, which said that prices in the three months to last December were 6.5 per cent higher than in the previous quarter. However, according to figures from HM Revenue & Customs, the number of house sales was 9 per cent lower, suggesting a shortage of stock, which is borne out by the Royal Institution of Charterd Surveyors. As Halifax said: “There are no signs that the acute shortage of stock of homes available for sale is easing. The number of new instructions for November was flat, with the figure for unsold stock at a record low.”

POSITIVEPREDICTIONS Mortgage rates have risen but there may be no big jump until 2019, says Duncan Farmer

“S

ay goodbye to cheap mortgages” was the headline in a New Year edition of The Sunday Times, which cited not only fears that interest rates would rise once Donald Trump arrived at his desk in the Oval Office but also because swap rates – the price at which institutions borrow money, and therefore the price we end up paying – have risen dramatically. For example, In the UK, 10-year swap rates have doubled since August from 0.671 per cent to 1.345 per cent. Five-year swap rates have also doubled over the past five months. And lenders have not been slow to pass on the cost. Norwich & Peterborough building society has withdrawn its two-year fixed-rate mortgage which had a rate of 1.19percent. Leeds building society had earlier withdrawn its same loan. Leeds puts its rate up by 0.16 percentage points. On a £500,000 25-year repayment mortgage that would take the monthly cost from £1,928 to £1,965. That may not appear a huge jump, but by 2019 when such a deal ends and a borrower needs to look elsewhere for a mortgage the cost could be far higher. Few people, me included, have successfully predicted what would happen to interest rates in recent years. But one man has: Roger Bootle, the founder of Capital Economics, predicted in 2009 that interest rates could remain very low for many years to come. How right he was. He is still predicting that, in spite of fears that Donald Trump’s infrastructure spending plans would push up the cost of borrowing in the US, which would eventually filter across the Atlantic to us, interest rates in the UK will remain low until 2019. “It’s quite possible that in three years’ time Bank Rate might be 3 per cent, and one has to imagine that it is going back up to something like 5 per cent, but that might take a long time to get to,” Mr Bootle told The Daily Telegraph. He also said that while what happens in the US generally affects the UK the strength of the UK economy is key and also that the Government may resist putting up interest rates while there is still uncertainty surrounding Brexit. If, as has been predicted by some people who may have the inside track on this, Brexit is going to rumble on for a decade, it could well be some years before we wave goodbye to low interest rates.

T

he Council for Mortgage Lenders says that borrowing to buy the most expensive properties is slowing down, not least because of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the inauguration of Donald Trump. “As most housing transactions are discretionary, it is often the case that activity levels tend to be bear the brunt of any uncertainty, as buyers and sellers wait to get a clearer picture of where the economy may be headed,” the CML said. ”For this reason, the slowdown in transactions has been compounded by economic uncertainty, as we expected.” It added that the cost of stamp duty had limited activity in the top of the end of the market. “The real weakness is coming from second steppers and other home movers, whose activity continues to be subdued,” it said.

A beautiful home needs a beautiful mortgage Whether you are buying your first home, next home or need to remortgage, look no further than SPF Private Clients for specialist mortgage advice. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The precise amount will depend upon your circumstances and loan amount. We estimate that the fee will be 0.67% of the amount borrowed.

Superb reception spaces, downstairs cloakroom, heaps of storage, upstairs study and lavishly large bedrooms. You really can lose the children in this huge family home. The main living space wraps around to the back, ending in a fine Italian-designed open-plan kitchen with bi-fold doors that open out to the garden. The L-shape allows for loud television viewing at the front of the house that won’t destroy radio listening while you fix supper. There’s a very fortunate separate reception across the hall, helping every member of the family enjoy the space they need. All in, the house measures an impressive 2250sq.ft; being on a corner plot has given it double bay windows at the front and bay windows to the side. Cutting edge heating and insulation systems credit this home as energy efficient as things get. Bedrooms are enormous. Two of the three doubles on the first floor have en suite shower rooms and there’s a shared bathroom. Spectacularly huge second-floor bedrooms have large skylights and doors that open to plenty of eaves storage. The garden faces south west, has a paved terrace, offstreet parking, tall fencing and is very private. Commuters will appreciate being minutes from zone 2 trains and London Overground links.

There is also a downstairs WC. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and the family bathroom.

LETTINGS LOWDOWN Ruth Barr, Regional Partner/Lettings Head Knight Frank Wimbledon, expects a busy first quarter

L

ettings enquires are up 20 per cent in volume which is good news for landlords. Demand is very strong for properties priced at £3,000 per month and under and we have noticed that some corporate rental budgets have been revised downwards for new employees into the UK. This means that well priced houses between £2,000-£3,000 per month are in great demand and we are running out of stock in these brackets. With pricing a key element for nearly every tenant – we have noticed an upturn in the number of tenants using our Residential Corporate Services department as they search for tenants in multiple areas and the service is free. We are also pleased to report that private tenants with higher sums to spend are starting to think about renting for the next two years while they wait to see what happens with the sales market. These high net worth individuals are keen to maintain their lifestyles so happy to rent at the top end and we often require indoor pools and gyms and be prepared to pay the premiums these “toys” command. The first quarter of this year will be a busy one.

LAST WORD Rebecca Jane Higgins, Knight Frank Wandsworth Describe your property career to date. I have only worked for Knight Frank and have been “home grown” over the past 10 years. My background was in hospitality, fashion and administration. I started as an office manager and marketing coordinator in the Wandsworth Office. I very much enjoyed this part of my career as I was involved with local charities and sponsorship of local events such as the annual Bellevue Road Summer Fair. I then moved to our Clapham office, when it opened a few years ago, to help set up the lettings department. I was there for 18 months and in that time we became the main letting agent for prime property in Wandsworth and Clapham. I then moved back to where it all began as a Sales Negotiator. I really love the area and the properties that we sell. What do you enjoy most about your job and what have been the highlights? I enjoy helping people achieve their goals. It is genuinely a wonderful feeling when people excitedly pick up their keys on the day of completion. Buying and selling can be stressful and my job is to make it an easier process. I enjoy getting to know my buyers and trying to seek out the right house for them. We do a lot of off-market deals which is about matching applicants and vendors without coming to the open market. I like to think of myself as a property matchmaker! Describe the biggest challenges. The perception of estate agents. I am happy to be one and I hope I am good at my job. I like to think the profile of a typical estate agent has changed. I have only worked for Knight Frank so maybe this is why! What advice would you give to anyone considering a career in estate agency? The property industry is service led and you have to be alert, flexible and well-organised. Every day is different so it is important to be adaptable and not to take things personally. You need to be personable, well-informed and prepared to work long hours when needed. What advice do you have for homebuyers in the current market? Ideally be chain free or under offer before you seriously start

looking to buy. It puts you in a far stronger negotiating position. Too often applicants are disappointed when houses they have fallen in love with sell quickly. What sets south London apart? I love the nature of South London, especially Wandsworth Common on a summer’s evening. Battersea Park is also a great spot for a day out with crazy golf and a wonderful children’s zoo. What do you think lies ahead for the south London market? South London has generally has its own micro market of upsizers and downsizers. Sales wise we have had a great end of 2016 and a strong start to 2017 – agreeing one of the most expensive houses currently on the market. We are busy offering advice on pricing and timing for properties which might come to the market, so the future looks good.

Recent highs, recent lows? We recently sold a house on the Toastrack to a buyer who had always looked at these houses when walking on the common over the years – they are vision board houses. They needed to sell to buy. We found them a buyer who was a previous client. So we made three different parties happy in one chain and all in time for Christmas. A recent low is telling a buyer they have been gazumped by another buyer, that is never an easy call to make. What is your top location south of the river? I have a soft spot in my heart for the Magdalene Estate. I used to babysit years ago and I would generally cycle down the pretty tree-lined streets looking at the lovely houses. In the summer there was always the most amazing smell of cut grass in the afternoon and then jasmine.

If you were not an estate agent, what career would you choose and why? I would be a perfumer. I adore scents and aromas. I am hoping to create my own scent this year. I believe in the power of a scent to instantly change your attitude.

A message from Hani This last year has been a challenging year for sales and rentals. The property market has been affected by various factors: the change of stamp duty at the end of 2014, the general election and the EU referendum as well as additional stamp duty for those with second homes. Nevertheless, with some adjustments in property prices, we can confirm that we are still experiencing success with sales and rentals in the Coombe area, an oasis of outstanding beauty lying just off Kingston Hill. The ever changing face of the Coombe Estate varies from traditional to contemporary newly built family homes, giving Coombe a new lease of life and providing variety for the discerning tenant and purchaser. Indeed, since the 60s and 70s many of the large Victorian estates have been demolished to create mini estates and some of those are now being split even further, however Coombe still retains some properties that benefit from having in excess of 3 acre plots. Over the last 25 years, property prices have continued to increase as more and more houses are being redeveloped, improving the quality of property in the area. The Coombe area has become more international and as an independent

agent, we have relocated more families into Coombe from overseas than any other agent. The Coombe Residential team are local and have lived in the area for many years. We are all passionate about Coombe and are delighted to share our knowledge with people moving to the area. We continue to witness a wide migration from all surrounding areas as well as international buyers and we benefit from advertising in a variety of property journals as well as the three most visited property portals. We are pleased to showcase a sample of our properties which we are proud to offer for sale and for rental. We have a selection of new builds, beautifully refurbished homes and some which have remained within the same family for generations and offer the opportunity for redevelopment. We always respect our clients’ privacy and have a private selection of properties available. We look forward to meeting new Coombe residents and to retaining our existing clients throughout 2017 as the face of Coombe continues to develop. Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017.
