Three simple things you can do whilst being at home 2020

 

Whilst you may be continuing your work from home and still trying to maintain some levels of productivity, it is important to take regular breaks and still try to keep to a healthy routine. We have provided three very quick, simple and easy things you can do whilst being at home. 

Learn a new skill

Take this as an opportunity to grow and develop your skills. This could range from as challenging as learning a new language to as simple as learning an interesting fact. Perhaps if you are helping your children with their home schooling it has inspired you to master fractions or have a better understanding of science, whatever it is now is an ideal time to do it.

 

Go out into the garden

With Spring just around the corner and this unexpecting sunshine, now is your chance to refresh the garden ready for the hotter seasons. Whilst you may not be able to go out and buy new plants, you can mow the lawn, tidy up your beds and remove all the leaves and dirt from your patio.

 

Declutter

The cupboards, the messy drawer, the pantry, the space bedroom, anywhere! Set yourself a daily task of tidying small aspects of your home and cleaning up ready for Spring. Not only is this productive it also gives you a sense of achievement especially if you are currently not working.  

 

For any help or advise during this uncertain period please do not hesistate in contacting your local Nock Deighton office.

For those that fall into the 'vulnerable' category please contact  your local offices should you need anything! We are offering our services to help those in need in our local community. 

 

We are also offering Virtual Viewings for those people that sill wish to progress with their property journey, here's how...

The key(s) to success!

 

Anyone who has been through the conveyancing process must agree that weeks of worry and uncertainty between agreeing an offer on a property, up until the day of completion, are amongst most stressful of your life.  However, by learning a little more about the process and following a few simple pieces of advice can help keep down your stress levels and reduce timescales.

 

  1. Communication is key, while exciting developments may take place some weeks, others can be slower. Whatever is happening, keep in contact with both your estate agent and solicitors to ensure you are kept in the loop.

 

  1. Ensure you are able to commit time to the administrative side of moving house, yes it’s not as exciting as dreaming of your home but if you focus on gathering together the list of legal documents, ID and financial statements your solicitor will request within their initial documentation it will speed up later stages of the process.

 

  1. There are rare occasions when the legal process is completed within days however, a far more realistic expectation of timescale is 8-12 weeks, when chains are involved, and the majority of links have to obtain mortgages. Only solicitors can agree completion dates therefore, if you have any specific dates in mind due to pre-booked holidays etc please discuss these with your estate agent at offer stage and solicitor when you initially instruct them.

 

  1. Confused by the process or legal jargon? Don’t be afraid to ask for help and advice from both your estate agents and solicitor. You’ve spent time reading recommendations and talking to friends about their experiences before instructing local professionals, so let your hard work pay off by giving them a call to tap into their years of experience.

Have you got any more tips we can share? We’d love to hear your top 3 today!

Essential Reading: Septic Tank Regulation – January 2020

Written by Sales Director and Head of Country Homes, Ross D'Aniello

 

Traditionally in January I would review the previous year and cobble together an article trying to predict what will happen in the forthcoming year.  Trust me when I tell you that this is no easy task, especially for 2020!

 

The good people at The Shropshire Magazine have asked some of the more influential & respected local agents to provide their thoughts on potential market activity in 2020 in an article elsewhere in this wonderful magazine that I have gladly contributed to, so for those who are curious my thoughts are contained in there.  Quite frankly, reading it once will probably be enough!

 

So, instead I thought I’d provide some information which might very extremely important to some of you.  If you have a septic tank read on; the following information is essential reading.

 

General Binding Rules: small sewage discharge to a surface water

It’s not exactly catchy but it might apply to you if you have a septic tank that discharges into a watercourse. Up until the end of 2019 you could “discharge” the separated waste water from within the septic tank through one of two ways:  either into a drainage field/soakaway system or into a watercourse such as a stream or river

 

From January 1st 2020 you are no longer allowed to discharge from a septic tank into a watercourse of any other type of soakaway system other than a drainage field.  The reason for this is that the “quality” of the waste water is no longer considered clean enough to flow straight into local watercourses or soakaway systems without causing pollution.

 

For a number of years property owners have not been allowed to install a new system that discharges into a watercourse, however provided that your existing septic tank wasn’t identified by the Environment Agency as causing pollution you were not obliged to change it.

 

This all changed from 1st January this year.

 

If your septic tank discharges into a watercourse, not a soakaway or drainage field then you must upgrade your system by either swapping your septic tank for a sewage treatment plant or, if possible, you must install a drainage field or soakaway system.

 

For those who worry that  I am “giving the game away” to buyers this is now regulation and obligatory and solicitors acting on behalf of buyers will no doubt be thorough regarding this matter.  The Property Consultants at Nock Deighton are all thoroughly briefed on this important issue and are well able to provide advice to potential clients who are wishing to sell and may be effected by this. 

 

Property of the Month: 1 Horse & Jockey, Far Forest, Kidderminster

Kidderminster’s property of the month for December is the delightful 1 Horse & Jockey, Far Forest, Kidderminster.

After being renovated from the former public house in 2014, this property is bursting with character and charm, placed in a convenient location between Cleobury Mortimer and Kidderminster Town Centre whilst still enjoying the picturesque, rural views.

The front door opens into a porch area which leads through into the first reception room. A versatile area that can be used as a formal dining room or separate snug, amongst others. This room also provides access to the rear decking area.

Double doors lead into the breakfast kitchen that comprises a matching range of wall and base units. Integral appliances include a dishwasher and a freestanding Leisure cooker with an extractor above.

A further set of double doors lead into the incredibly spacious lounge/diner. With a raised fireplace housing a wood burner with brick hearth as the central focus point, this room provides a fantastic space to entertain with plenty of room for family and friends.

To the first floor are three bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms, and one family bathroom. All bathrooms are complete with white suites comprising low flush WC, wash hand basin and panelled bath with shower above. The master en-suite also houses a bidet.

CONDENSATION -how to avoid it this winter

 

We are finding that more and more rented properties are suffering with damp/condensation, which is a common complaint each winter. This sometimes leads to tenants seeking alternative accommodation, which is completely unnecessary in most cases, as the problem can usually be treated and then avoided.

 

Obviously, if there is water ingress into the property (e.g. from a roof leak or a burst/leaking pipe), this can cause damp and will require a builder/specialist contractor to remedy. But it is quite simple to differentiate between "damp" and "condensation".

 

What a lot of people don't realise is condensation is caused by an imbalance of heat and ventilation. Everyday modern living involves moisture in the home, but condensation can occur even in the warmest atmospheres, if the excess moisture can't get out, which is tricky in the winter when the air outside is cold and damp. Our aim is to help tenants understand what causes the problem, how to deal with it and how to prevent it from happening again.

 

Part of our campaign is to share this really helpful YouTube video with our tenants, put together by an independent contractor - it explains the difference between damp and condensation, how to prevent it and how to treat it.

 

After all, happy Tenants make happy Landlords!
