Hello and a very warm welcome to the May issue of the Whitby Advertiser, the number one choice for advertising in Whitby and the surrounding district. I hope you will find the following pages both enjoyable and informative whether you are a regular reader, visitor or holidaymaker to the area. The year seems to be flying by doesn’t it? I can’t believe that May is almost here as I sit and write this! April has been such a busy month for Whitby. Temperatures soared over the Easter holidays and great crowds descended upon the town enjoying all that Whitby has to offer – the pretty harbourside and quaint streets with gift shops galore, and a fantastic choice of fish and chip shops, cafes, restaurants and other eateries. Thousands too flocked to not one but two fabulous Goth festivals celebrating Goth costume and culture. In recent decades, Whitby has become synonymous with goth culture which has brought many amazing sights to our streets and April was no exception with this double helping of costumes dressed to kill and thrill, from the racy and revealing (ooerrr missus!) to the rather dark and sombre. Add to this great music events at local venues and the ever-popular Bazaar Goth markets, all which made for a wonderful and lively atmosphere enjoyed by all! Looking at the calendar, there will be more busy weekends ahead with the May Day Bank Holiday early this month on Monday 6 May and then another long weekend at the end of the month with the Spring Bank Holiday falling on Monday 27 May. There are lots of events happening between too, such as the ‘Fish & Ships Festival’ from 18-19 May, a new festival on the calendar for Whitby which celebrates the town’s fishing heritage with cookery demonstrations, talks, angling and rowing competitions, workshops and no doubt many gatherings with sea songs and shanties – you either love or hate their rousing harmonies and raucous foot-stomping to those squeeze boxes! Here at the Whitby Advertiser, we are always busy and rarely

BUYING YOUR FIRST HOME & MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS

Article courtesy of Hendersons Estate Agents, Whitby

So the exciting time has arrived, time to buy your first home and probably the most expensive thing you have every bought. All the more reason to ensure every thing is correct and the right decisions are made in order to the make the first home-buying experience a happy and successful one. BUDGETING The important thing to remember is be realistic, seek advice from your bank or mortgage adviser who can help ensure you don’t underestimate your monthly mortgage repayments. Don’t be afraid to shop around for a good mortgage deal! A mortgage adviser will approach many lenders in order to find the perfect mortgage for you. The estate agent will be able to point you in the direction of a reliable friendly advisor. FINDING THE RIGHT HOME AND MAKING AN OFFER Don’t panic buy! There are many factor to consider when buying a home, size, running costs, location, layout, garden size. View several properties which you feel meet your criteria and choose the one which works best for you. When making an offer consider any additional cost which you may incur including any additional works you may wish to carry out on the property. Don’t forget your budget, try not to get carried away with excitement whilst making offers as you may end up over spending. ADDITIONAL COSTS Remember that there are several unavoidable expenses to consider. Legal fees are to be payed to your solicitor who has carried out the conveyancing for you along with a survey which will have ben carried out by your mortgage lender. Thankfully the stamp duty threshold for first time buyers has been raised for first time buyers, this means that anyone buying their first home won’t be liable for stamp duty if the purchase price is below £300,000. TIME SCALES

can still take time. On average expect the process to take around 8-12 weeks, however this can be reduced if circumstances allow. It is also very difficult for a solicitor to confirm or suggest a date for completion until the process is well down the line. HELP AND ADVICE Don’t feel awkward asking questions, buying your first home is a massive step and no doubt your estate agent is empathetic of this. There is nothing wrong with picking up the phone to ask the agent any questions, no matter how big or small. The agent will be more than happy to discuss any queries you how. Your solicitor is there to help, they are acting on your behalf after all. It is good practice to build a professional relationship with your solicitor where you are in regular correspondence in order to be kept updated with progress.

Although you are in a good, chain free position and Once the whole buying process is done it time to kick can move forward with your purchase quickly, it is back and relax in your new home! important to remember that the conveyancing process Written by Martin Thistle 44

YOUR LEGAL QUESTIONS ANSWERED ABOUT... NEIGHBOUR DISPUTES

In an ideal world, we would all live in harmony with our neighbours. Unfortunately, disputes with neighbours are a common occurrence and can be very stressful for both parties. Whitby civil litigation solicitor Peter Noble considers your options on how to deal with a dispute with your neighbour. Overhanging trees, tall hedges, excessive noise, disagreement over the position of a boundary or who is responsible for maintaining a party (shared) wall, anti-social behaviour and even harassment. While not an exhaustive list, these reasons form the basis of some of the most common causes of neighbour disputes. How you deal with the dispute can have a long lasting effect on your relationship with your neighbours and your enjoyment of your home and property.

Courtesy of :

At Pinkney Grunwells, we offer 30 minute advice surgeries as a first step in dealing with any neighbour dispute. An advice surgery appointment gives you the opportunity to discuss your case with a solicitor who will identify the key legal aspects of your issue, establish whether • Peter Noble you have a case and talk through options on how to resolve your problem in the most amicable and cost-effective way.

Whether you just need advice on a specific question, help in making a complaint to the Council or need Depending on the problem, various courses of action assistance to go through the full Court process, come may be available to you. Noise complaints and issues and talk to us, we’ll be happy to help. with trees can be dealt with initially by your local council. Party wall and boundary issues are often defined on property title deeds or can be defined by a specialist Surveyor. If your neighbour is a tenant, their landlord should be the first point of contact. What can I do?

Whatever the issue is, it is usually better if you can resolve it before it becomes a huge problem. We would always suggest that you first try and talk to your neighbour, rationally setting out what the issue is and aiming for joint agreement on how it can be solved. If tensions are already running high, or there may be a risk of violence, you may wish to write to them instead. If you are worried about approaching them, we can write to them on your behalf, explaining the problem and setting out the situation clearly and concisely. If this doesn’t work, we can help you to try and resolve matters through Alternative Dispute Resolution. A trained mediator will help both parties to focus on the issue and consider the best way of solving it. This is usually much faster and cheaper than taking legal action. As a last resort, it may be appropriate to commence legal proceedings. This is not a decision to be taken lightly and court proceedings can be expensive. In some cases, however, it may be the only way to find a long term solution.

RECOGNISING SIGNS OF PAIN IN OUR PETS

Our pets are part of our family and as such it is an awful thought to imagine that we may need to evaluate if they are ever in pain. Some pain is of course very obvious to us as pet owners but I would like to make readers more aware of signs that your animal may be in non-obvious pain. It is against the nature of our animals to show signs of weakness and pain so here are a few symptoms to look out for if you are not sure. Pain in cats Reluctance to play / Reduced agility Is your cat reluctant to run upstairs, jump onto a surface or stopped playing with their favourite toy? Limping Does your cat struggle to walk even after periods of rest? Irritability Cats can become irritable and depressed and may avoid being stroked or fussed by their owners. The may hide somewhere and react aggressively to being moved or approached. Grooming Has your pet stopped grooming properly or are they over grooming a particular area? This can be a sign they either can no longer reach an area to groom due to pain or they over groom the area that is causing them pain. Flattening of ears / narrowing of eyes If your cat is showing visual signs of pain on their face but not being vocal this does not mean they are not in pain.

Pain in dogs Limping Does your dog suffer from stiffness or limping, especially after lying down or going for long walks? ‘Laziness’ Has your dog stopped wanting to play with his ball or wanting to go for their usual walks? 84

MONTHLY VETERINARY ADVICE

Brogan Proud RVN of BECK VETS

Reduced agility Is your dog finding it harder to get in and out of the car or get up the stairs at home, or even just getting up from rest? Grumpiness Has your dog become less tolerant of attention or maybe a little snappy around other pets that want to play? Detachment Some dogs can appear to become distant or aloof from their family when they are in pain or stressed. Clingy Some dogs will need more attention and reassurance when in pain or feeling anxious. Chewing / Licking This can be so excessive to a certain area it causes discolouration of fur or baldness. This is not an exhaustive list and of course all pets are different, you know you pet best so if you think there is anything wrong then please get in touch.
