Autumn Statement 2015 Comment

Residential property implications

Stamp Duty Land Tax
The Chancellor announced in the Autumn Statement an additional levy on residential purchases. An acquisition of a property that will not be a main residence, whether it be a second home or for buy-to-let purposes, will incur a further 3% placed on the Stamp Duty Land Tax.

The Stamp Duty rates were changed in December 2014 introducing a graduated tax encompassing various bands for which a progressive percentage duty applies. Each band will now rise by three percentage points when buying to let or holding another home.










Commercial investors and funds holding over 15 properties are likely to be exempt.

Capital Gains Tax
Capital Gains Tax, if applicable, will now have to be paid within 30 days from completing on a property, however this will not be enforced until April 2019.

Help to Buy
The Chancellor will be extending the Help to Buy scheme to 2021 and providing funding support for first time buyers through an ISA and interest-free loans of up to 40%.

New Homes
400,000 new homes are targeted to be built in the next five years and the government will make financial provisions for developers and housing associations to spur the additional house building.

A comment on the Autumn Statement from our Chairman:

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 2:57 pm

Nicholas Leeming - BWNicholas Leeming, Chairman of Jackson-Stops & Staff:  “George Osborne’s pledge to tackle a ‘crisis’ in homeownership today, by doubling the housing budget, is excellent news for the UK market.  There has been a devastating lack of supply across the UK for many years while home ownership has been falling as many families have not been able to afford their own home.  400,000 new homes will be built and it is refreshing to see government’s commitment to providing housing for all UK residents, including first-time buyers with new starter homes and the launch of the London Help to Buy scheme.

“However, I think George Osborne has missed a trick in not reducing the rate of Stamp Duty for the highest value homes.  The £1.4m+ market has been hit extremely hard as buyers have changed their habits over the past year – those looking to move up the ladder were not prepared to pay a six-or-seven-figure tax bill, while overseas investors have also been deliberating over whether to buy.  The Chancellor could have provided major boost to this sector’s liquidity today by reducing the excessive stamp duty charges on higher valued properties and so encourage more activity in the top end of the market.”

Making the “Rightmove” in December

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 12:31 pm

RED HOUSEAs the end of 2015 approaches, our Jackson-Stops & Staff offices across London and Surrey are reflecting upon another successful year. But the year is not over yet…in fact, December could be the very best time of year to market your property and here’s why:

Internet activity increases dramatically over the festive period – on Christmas Day in 2014 there were almost 14,000,000* page views on property portal Rightmove, with over 10,000 people taking time out from the festivities to email agents.

Boxing Day was even busier, with page views jumping to over 25,000,000*, up 21% on 2012 levels. Total views peaked on New Year’s Day, with over 38,000,000* page views.

Those who unwrapped new smartphones or tablets at Christmas were eager to begin house hunting, too – there were over 26,000* downloads of the Rightmove app across the various platforms between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day alone.

So, if you are thinking of making your move in the New Year, then this side of the festive season could be an excellent time to begin marketing your property. And if the thought of preparing to Sell or Let your home appears daunting at this busy time of year, we can discuss ways of running a tailored campaign to launch your property with viewings beginning in 2016.

Please do not hesitate to contact your local office to discuss how we can be of service.

Thousands of people from the local community ventured out in the pouring rain to enjoy live music, a delicious hog roast and a wonderful display that lit up Weybridge in spectacular style!

“My Month” from Georgina Clarke in our Pimlico office

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 4:10 pm

How has the market been performing?Georgina Clarke BW

The late summer market has been busier than usual this year with Team Pimlico letting more properties than ever in these traditional busy months. This is down to the seasonal influx of students and
graduates as well as the usual stirrings in corporate recruitment and relocation that is typical at this time of year. We have also seen the ongoing effect of new MPs and new government posts following the election. Most of this activity has been at the lower and mid end of the market with the ‘big house’ and ‘prime’ end of the market still yet to return to the happy levels of previous years. We are now seeing a pattern in the family market where the aim is to secure rental properties prior to the summer holidays so that everything is settled for the big return to school in the autumn.

What has been the highest offer or the quickest sale to take place?

Jackson-Stops are proud that they have a very good relationship between the sales, lettings and new homes departments with many investment purchasers and landlord’s nurtured through all three departments. In recent months we have been proud to market The Hansom, a development of contemporary apartments opposite Victoria station. Marketed by our new homes team initially, sold to an investment buyer by the Pimlico sales team and a let agreed to professional tenants for the new landlord before the purchase had even been completed. And similarly we have just let a lovely period property on Cambridge Street, sourced for an investment landlord who has spent a couple of months refurbishing the property.  The property was introduced to her before marketing commenced and we followed this ideal match-up by finding another ideal tenant before launching for rentals. Efficient and productive teamwork. Another happy client!

What has been the most challenging aspect of your month?

The endless amount of administration faced by landlords, and by default the agent, has provided us with some challenges over the busy summer months. With so much new legislation including Legionella risk assessments, the new statutory requirement for smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in rental properties, not to mention the tightening of Anti-Money Laundering Regulations, there have been a lot of boxes to tick. Given the minefield of rules and regulations that landlords have to face these days, it is certainly wise to instruct a good agent that will co-ordinate all of this for you and keep you up to date with new legislation and your obligations.

Describe an exceptional property that has come on to the market…

We are delighted to be involved in the launch of a brand new mews house development in Earls Court which is being marketed from our four central London branches. Exclusively to rent, this contemporary development known as Peel Place will provide nine, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, each with their own outside space as well as parking or a garage all designed with contemporary living in mind. The regeneration of the area as a whole is very exciting as we see the old exhibition centre completely redeveloped by Capco, with an entire new neighbourhood being created.  Coming soon …. Watch this space.

JSS-Pimlico Location Shots-025Describe what has been your favourite local lunch spot – where you ate and what you had?
We have seen the opening of two lovely new establishments in Pimlico recently, adding to the unique collection one-off restaurants and cafés that Pimlico is lucky to have. The first on Churton Street is Cacio & Pepe – a charming and fashionable Italian restaurant and wine bar. And secondly the Cambridge Street Café which is dangerously close to our office and I am sure will become a regular breakfast and coffee haunt, which I am sure is very welcome by the local residents.

A Man’s Best Friend…is his Canine Friendly Estate Agent

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 2:24 pm

dogs-888856_1920Recent newspaper reports have highlighted the rising number of tenants searching for pooch-friendly properties to rent in Prime Central London. At Jackson-Stops & Staff, we too have noticed this growing trend, but thought we would reassure those with furry friends that plenty of Landlords remain open to the idea of tenants with pets renting their properties. Indeed, the rise of the ‘handbag dog’ is not a major issue for a number of our Landlords, it is most frequently the larger breeds which can be a cause for concern. Do get in touch with your local Jackson-Stops & Staff office to find out more, we will be happy to discuss this in furry – that is, finer – detail.

Following her win, Nadiya explained that when it comes to baking, size isn’t everything, saying that ‘I entered the competition as the smallest baker and finished a giant. So with the right ‘can do’ attitude, great baking creations can be made in the smallest kitchens.’

‘A Word From’ our Holland Park Lettings Manager, Catherine Hanley

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 11:03 am

Catherine Hanley BWHere at our Holland Park Lettings office we’ve seen a marked rise in levels of activity as we head into the autumn months. Relocation activity has been a predominant factor for this, but other reasons for applicants looking to rent include personal house renovations, such as basement conversions, along with other extensive remodelling projects which require time away from home.

Holland Park and Notting Hill attracts a diverse range of tenants, from bankers (due to convenient transport links to the city) through to fashion designers (the area is awash with independent fashion stores and designer boutiques); antique dealers love living close by to Portobello Road with its market and wide array of unusual antique stores, whilst families move to the area for the gardens, beautiful green spaces and fabulous state and private schooling options. We’re lucky enough to enjoy a great diversity of cultures due to the different schools (Spanish, Italian, and French to name but a few), as well as shops and restaurants serving up menus from across the globe. The number of applicants with pets has also risen and we find that dog walkers in particular are keen to move to the area in order to make the most of the green spaces of Holland Park.

We currently have a range of new stock available, despite most current tenants deciding to renew their tenancies and not feeling ready to commit to buying just yet. Do get in touch to find out how we can help, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Ahead of the Rugby World Cup touching down on Friday, we were delighted to attend this weekend’s ‘Festival of Rugby’ event held by Teddington Rugby Club, in our capacity as proud sponsors of the Minis section. The day was an excellent opportunity to watch the Minis in action, meet hundreds of families from the local community and to run some fun events for the children, including face painting, colouring, ‘guess the price of the house,’ candy floss and a lucky dip, which raised over £200 for the Minis and their club. In addition, staff from various offices across our London network joined forces to play as the ‘Jackson-Stoppers’ in the festival’s Touch Rugby tournament and did us all proud!

‘A Word From’ our International Department, Annabel Smith

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , — JSS London @ 10:27 am

Annabel Smith BWJackson-Stops & Staff International is the UK’s premier Italian property specialist, operating in 16 of the 20 regions, and probably has the broadest portfolio of Italian properties in the UK.


This wide ranging and exciting portfolio is backed by specialist knowledge of, and a close relationship with, all aspects of the Italian property market.

We promote over 1000 properties and have access to many more through a network of over 30 Associations across the country.

We also have a fantastic property portfolio for Spain, Portugal and the Caribbean.


With the Pound strong against the Euro, we have seen a huge increase in enquiries for our European properties this year, which is also reflected in our increase in sales for 2015 so far. Interestingly, the majority of our buyers are looking in Italy – they love the variety the country has to offer across its 20 regions, and are buying into the wonderful lifestyle they can enjoy there.


Another location to keep an eye on is Sotogrande in Spain, it seems to be ‘kicking off’ and many are getting wind of this. During my recent visit to the area last month, I could see the potential and fell in love with the location instantly…anybody who loves golf or polo cannot fail to love it too!


I thoroughly enjoy running the International Department, and delight in helping others to find their ideal holiday home, or retirement property in the sun!

Sounding the trumpets for Elephant & Castle

SkylineThings are coming up trunks this week for Elephant & Castle, with the Maccabees’ frontman Orlando Weeks telling of the band’s love affair with this vibrant area of London, as seen in this week’s Evening Standard. The band is set to release their documentary dedicated to the area, entitled Elephant Days, and it seems that their love of the area is largely down to its enduring feeling of homeliness. Since forming their five-piece band as teenagers in 2004, the local Maccabees’ boys have witnessed exciting, significant changes to Elephant & Castle, including the £1.5 billion regeneration project currently taking place.

Our Residential Development department has this spectacular three bedroom, two bathroom apartment in the iconic One The Elephant development.  Designed by world renowned architects Squire & Partners, with interiors by one of the most influential designers working today, Tara Bernerd, this incredible penthouse is one of just three apartments creating the ‘Skyscape Collection’ at One The Elephant. Multi-award winning developers, Lend Lease, have combined the extraordinary talents of each specialist team to create these prestigious homes featuring some of the largest, private penthouse terraces in London.  Occupying a prime London Zone 1 location, One the Elephant is located within close proximity to the superb transport links. In just under 2 minutes’ walk from Elephant & Castle Station, residents will benefit from quick and easy access to many of London’s key destinations. The area hosts one mainline station, links to 28 different bus routes, and frequent underground services via the Northern and Bakerloo Lines.  The Pavilion at One The Elephant is an exciting new development encompassing high quality, sustainable homes in the heart of the Elephant & Castle regeneration area and offers three floors of boutique-style living, in a more intimate environment, with open walkways leading to homes with integral private balconies overlooking a residents’ reading garden.

Legionella Risk Assessment

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 10:48 am

hand-101003_640As your Agent we need to bring to your attention the following changes that affect your responsibility as a Landlord in respect of Legionella bacteria and Legionnaires’ disease.

What is Legionnaires disease?
Legionnaires’ disease is caused by Legionella bacteria infecting your lungs. Legionella bacteria is commonly found in water. The bacteria multiply if they find their way into artificial water supply systems, where temperatures are between 20-45°C and nutrients are available. It’s usually caught by breathing in small droplets of contaminated water.

The best way to prevent an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease is to ensure that any water system under your control is properly maintained and conforms to relevant health and safety regulations.

This mainly involves keeping water either cooled below 20C or heated above 60C. The water supply should also be kept free of impurities and moving, so that it doesn’t stagnate.

What change in the law applies to Legionnaires disease and Legionella bacteria?
The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health 1999 provide guidance including the control of bacteria in water including hot water, cold water, heating and cooling systems. The relevant legislation can be viewed at www.hse.gov.uk/legionnaires

What is my responsibility as a Landlord?
Landlords who provide residential accommodation, as the person in control of the premises or responsible for the water systems in their premises, have a legal duty to ensure that the risk of exposure of tenants to legionella is properly assessed and controlled. This duty extends to residents, guests, tenants and customers. They can carry out a risk assessment themselves if they are competent, or employ somebody who is.

What is a Legionella Risk Assessment (LRA) and how much is going to cost?
In the UK this type of specialist risk assessment is required by law and is specifically identified by the Health & Safety Executive in their Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) L8 “Legionnaires’ disease. The control of legionella bacteria in water systems”.

A Legionella Risk Assessment is an essential risk management process and comprises a detailed examination of the risks presented by man-made water systems, and seeks to identify and assess the risks associated with Legionnaires’ disease through exposure to legionella bacteria.

The Legionella Risk Assessment needs to be completed every two years. To try and help Landlords with this added burden Jackson-Stops & Staff have negotiated a cost of £99 plus VAT for the service. However please be aware that the Legionella Risk Assessment can be completed with a supplier of your choice directly.

This charge can be debited directly from your account upon receipt of written authority. As your managing agent it is our duty to make you aware of this risk. To ensure that we have acted in your best interest please can you advise overleaf how you would like us to proceed?

We regret that this places yet another burden upon you, the Landlord, but as a professional management agency we cannot ignore compliance issues, particularly in relation to Tenant Health and Safety matters.

The Queen and Crown Reach


Crown Reach

As we celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as our longest serving UK monarch, we here in Pimlico and Westminster are proud to be located in this wonderful part of London which is the Queen’s London home. Having let many properties in the shadows of Buckingham Palace over the years, we are also proud to reign as one of the longest standing estate agents in this area, with our current Sales and Lettings Directors having accrued over 20 years of experience in the area between them.  queen-63006_1280

Our Pimlico sales property fit for a Queen is in Crown Reach, one of the areas most revered developments.  Opportunities to acquire apartments in this building do not usually come to the open market – often trading privately, in true royal style.

The secluded and professionally maintained gardens face the river and are shielded in terms of noise from the building itself making it a superb place to spend time. With the aforementioned concierge and secure parking this development makes for an ideal home, grown up pied-a-terre or lock up and leave for the international investor.  For more information on this “majestic” property please call our Pimlico team on 0207 828 4050.

Important new requirement on landlords to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 10:38 am

match-631729_1280We all know that we should have working smoke alarms in our homes. Yet even when you find out that you are four times more likely to die without a smoke alarm than with one and around 200 people die in house fires every year, it is one of those chores it is easy to keep putting off.

But soon landlords will no longer have the option to ‘overlook’ this safety necessity. From 1 October this year, landlords will be legally required to install and check smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in their properties.

The law will apply to landlords renting residential accommodation to one or more tenants who occupy the property as their home.

The key requirements are:

  1. A smoke alarm must be fitted on every floor of the property where there is a room used wholly or partly as living accommodation.
  2. A carbon monoxide alarm must be placed in any room where solid fuel is burnt, such as wood, coal or biomass. This includes open fires but does not include gas, oil or LPG.
  3. Landlords will have to make sure the alarms work at the start of every tenancy, for example by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds.
  4. Landlords are also required to demonstrate that the alarms are working at the start of the tenancy. To prove this, we will advise landlords to get a receipt signed by the tenant confirming that the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are working. Alternatively, it should be added to the inventory signed by the tenant at check-in.

A few things to note:

  1. A bathroom or toilet is classed as a room used for living accommodation.
  2. A ‘room’ includes a hall or landing, and stairways also fall within the regulations. So, if you have a flat above a shop but you enter through stairs on the ground floor, a smoke alarm will be required in the stairway.

The new rules will be enforced by local authorities who will have the right to impose a fixed penalty charge (like a parking ticket) of up to £5,000 on landlords who do not comply.

If you have any queries about the new rules or would like to find out about Jackson-Stops & Staff’s property management services, please call Simon Quinn on 020 8879 1199 or email simonquinn@jackson-stops.com
