Turning a house into a home can be an expensive and difficult process for many. Buying the wrong types of decorative materials can be a costly exercise, to speak to an Agent property before taking the plunge.

What Does a Surveyor Do?

Surveyors are an essential when buying any form of property, as they need to ensure the building is safe to reside in or work in. Good surveyors are easy to find if you check with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) who will point you in the direction of your local specialist. It is very important that you have a surveyor check over your building to make sure that it is safe and structually supported well enough to ensure safety.

Too Many Properties Flattens Market

The sudden rise in the number of house sales in my immediate area seems to have come to a grinding halt.  It was all very hectic for a few months – no time for For Sale boards to go up, the Sold signs were prominently displayed – with a certain amount of pride it seems.  Then came the last election which seems to have sent a lot of business activities into a downward spin. This […]

Interest Surrounds Old Bungalow Project

cropped-development2.jpg

I have been watching with great interest the activities surrounding a rather attractive 1930s bungalow not far from me.  It’s set back off what is now an extremely busy trunk road on the approach to the town.  When it was built, one of several fairly similar bungalows, this would have been an idyllic spot, no big roads, and farm fields all around. A local building company is handling all the planning application for whatever the […]

Fair But Firm Property Agent Attacts A Better Tenant

I have a relative who is very useful when it comes to property and more particularly the current regulations on renting it out.  He has been engaged in the business for many years as second in command for a local, very successful small builder.  Between them they have developed many blocks, single units, multi occupation combos etc.  Each of the developments have looked sonderful.  Nothing too extravagant by way of fixtures and fittings for leasing […]

Staying In Touch With Rental Regulations

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Getting the help and information you need to start a propery portfolio can so often be bewildering and quite frankly, more trouble than might seem worth.  This is probably why so many start up landlords fail to really take stock of all the requlations out there.  The tenenat has to get good value for money and even more importantly, know that their hard earned rent is getting them a nicely presented and very safe place […]

Rented Pads Need More Than A Lick Of Paint

When spring is in the air there is always a tremendous rise in the amount of property maintenance and upgrading carried out – this last Easter for example, the adverts on tv impored us to drop everything, literally, and to get out there to the superstores out of town to get that essential tin of paint. . . . .  but you can’t just do that, it needs the equally essential packet of sanding paper […]

Rental Property Matters On The Up And Up

oak furniture

There has been a huge interest in the small clutch of houses for sale in this part of where I live.  The shortage of building land makes it difficult, although there are many ribbon developments running along the ends of every by  pass in the county.  Because the land is precious and rare, any building has to use as little land as possible and of course, that means going upwards, 3 storeys and more.  It […]

Refurbish With Care To Get Good Tenants

victorian house building

To keep a property permanently filled with paying tenants needs a good organisation.  The place has o be well looked after, clean, safe and decorated.  Although on the well kown  ‘house auction’ tv show, they always seem to think of putting very little into a refurishment ‘just for rental market’ this is not strictly the best polic.  The cheaper the work, the less the tenant will think of looking after it and the sooner another […]

Rent Or Buy – The Big Question

decorations

In years gone by there was only one way route for life – you went to school, did your exams, if very bright you went to university and got a proper job afterwards.  However you got your job, the aim was to earn enough to pay the rent and eventually buy the first flat and then the house.   There was not much variance on this.  Generally it has been the norm to rent and […]

Keeping Up The Pressure On Rented Properties

property developing

The housing market is slowing again apparently.  It really doesn’t feel it with the number of houses springing up sold signs and doing all the things they need before house exchange and then completion.  Those glorious moments that can be celebrated when those keys are handed over.  For years the new property will seem like a palace and should be cared like one, of course.   However, there are a lot of people in this country […]

Keep Up With Rented Property Markets In These Challenging Times

contemporary oak furniture

There are few things in life more anxiety inducing than that first property purchase.  For someone born in the 1950s and buying in the 1980s, this was a great deal more complicated than it appears to be these days.  There being no computers and thus no online mortgage applications etc. there was much waiting around.  Firstly of course, there was a deposit to be found and the legal fees etc.  Then having got our hands […]
