Moving your property rental service into Top Gear with Jackson-Stops & Staff

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 1:43 pm

gear-1294844_1280After much anticipation, we have at last been able to settle down on a Sunday night and enjoy the long-awaited relaunch of the BBC’s Top Gear programme. As you will no doubt be aware, the newly formatted programme is co-presented by Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc, which has been met with mixed reviews from critics and fans alike. I personally feel that the show is pretty good, but so far it slightly lacks the classic chemistry of the previous presenters.

 

If you’re looking for some classic chemistry, you need look no further than the Hanworth Classic event taking place in Bushy Park on the 26th June, which will feature a host of classic vehicles, many of which have distinctly 50’s vintage vibe.

Preparing your property to rent

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 11:48 am

Lara Thake, Property Manager

Lara Thake, Property Manager

Lara Thake, from our Property Management team, offers some helpful hints to landlords who are about to market their rental property:

It may sound obvious but one thing tenants consider carefully when they are searching for a property is whether it is well maintained. They often see this is as a reflection of how the property will be looked after by the landlord during their tenancy. It doesn’t need to be perfect, but there are some tell-tale signs that indicate you will be a caring and vigilant landlord:

Is the decoration in order, or is it chipped, scuffed and generally tired? Are there historic leak stains present? Redecorating doesn’t have to be done throughout the property, sometimes the woodwork is in good condition but the walls need freshening up, or vice versa. This may only apply to one room or a hallway, which receive heavier traffic, or it could be that just the external parts of the property require attention. We would not recommend carrying out touch-ups if you need to paint a small area, as this can make the area look patchy. It is usually best to paint the whole wall to ensure uniformity of colour; more often than not, the price difference is smaller than you might expect. If you decide to carry out a full redecoration, it is best to stick to neutral colours, as this will mean your property appeals to a diverse group of people. Sometimes a particular colour can put off a potential tenant, which limits your market.
Are the carpets in good condition or are they discoloured, worn and fraying? If the carpets are in bad condition, it is something that people notice straight away. We spend a lot of time looking down, even if we don’t mean to. In a rental property it may be a good idea to replace the flooring with a hard wearing carpet, as this should wear better and prevent you from having to replace it regularly. Again, if you do decide to replace it, choose neutral colours to please the majority of viewing tenants. As a landlord, you have a responsibility to try to prevent accidents in the property and frayed carpet or rips could potentially cause trips or falls, which in turn could end up costing a lot in legal bills. Sometimes, only small parts of the carpet need to be replaced. If you have been prudent, you may have kept carpet off-cuts from the original installation. This will help if there is a small area with a stain or burn mark and there are contractors out there who can easily replace small areas for you. Alternatively, you should consider keeping a note of the carpet details and the contractor may be able to order a sample piece to use as replacement.
Is the garden tidy or overgrown? More often than not, the garden is the first and last thing a tenant sees on a viewing and outside space tends to become more of a consideration during the warmer weather. Simply cutting back trees/bushes/plants, weeding any flower beds and mowing the lawn can transform an ominous Jumanji-looking garden into an enticing area in which tenants can picture themselves during the summer months.
Is the furniture in good condition or it is tired/frayed? Sometimes no furniture is better than old tatty furniture. If you would rather not incur the cost of replacing the furniture, donate the old furniture to charity and market the property as unfurnished.
Are the window dressings in good condition or are they stained and ripped? Sometimes dry cleaning curtains can cost as much as replacing them and there is no guarantee that dry cleaning will improve their condition. It can be a good idea to recycle your old curtains/blinds and start again with a hard-wearing, tenant-friendly, neutral set of curtains or blinds. Tenants like to be reassured that they will have their privacy when they move into a property, so damaged curtains can be off-putting on a viewing.
Does everything work as it should or will tenants encounter loose door handles, rickety wardrobes and items held together with sticky tape? It does not take a lot to tighten up a door handle, add an extra screw to a wobbly shelf or replace a washer to stop a tap from leaking. If the address is number 9 but the door number is loose and has fallen down to read 6, this can be off-putting to tenants, who may worry that they might not receive their post. These are the sorts of issues that go through potential tenants’ minds when looking for a property. If you are unable to do these jobs yourself, a local handyman equipped with his tools and a ‘to do’ list can fix these for you.

Is the bathroom floor tiled and are the tiles in good condition or are they cracked/moving? If the bathroom floor tiles are cracked, the tenants may worry about walking on them barefoot, as they could injure themselves. Cracked tiles can also indicate an underlying issue with the level of the subfloor. If it is uneven this can sometimes indicate a leak, as water causes the wood to rot and move. This leak can simply be when someone steps out of the shower and water slips through the perishing grouting, compromising the subfloor. On occasion it can indicate something more sinister such as a pipe leak, so it may be an idea to get this checked. If you have sorted out any background issues and the subfloor is not damaged, it is sometimes possible to replace the individual cracked tiles and re-grout. This is only if you have some matching tiles and the cracked tiles can be removed without damaging the remaining floor area. You may decide it’s worth replacing the whole floor if more than one tile is cracked. Again, it is a good idea to stick to neutral colours and once the new tiles have been laid make sure to keep the grout in good condition to avoid having to replace the tiles too regularly.

Our established, dedicated Property Management team, based at our Wimbledon Village office, would be delighted to discuss any property management issues you might have.

Short Lets in the summer

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , — JSS London @ 1:30 pm

Camilla Molyneux Colour

Camilla Molyneux, Mayfair Lettings Manager

With the summer months just around the corner we are entering the popular time for holidaymakers to come to the area for short stays of between 1-8 weeks.

The appeal of Mayfair is, of course, its exclusive location, which is easily recognisable on a map by the marked natural boundaries of Oxford Street, Regent Street, Park Lane and Piccadilly. This highly popular pocket of the West End houses the famous Berkeley Square, Grosvenor Square, Mount Street Gardens and is ideally nestled between two of London’s finest green spaces: Green Park and Hyde Park.

The accessibility to these beautiful areas is just one of the many draws to the area; others include the famous shopping streets, the incredible diversity of restaurants and numerous luxurious hotels. Short let accommodation is always in high demand at this time of the year and the more seasoned traveller will book their accommodation far in advance of the summer months in order to avoid disappointment.

For shorter stays (under 3 months) there are various options in Mayfair in the form of luxury serviced apartments, which are often set within 5* hotels and are highly sought after. The benefit of these self-contained apartments is the availability of services provided by the hotel, such as daily maid service, concierge and room service. If you would like to discuss the options available to you please do get in touch – we’d be delighted to assist you with your holiday planning.

Supply and Demand in the London Rental Market

Filed under: Latest News — JSS London @ 1:30 pm

calculator-428294_1920Recent research findings from Rightmove suggest that a record number of buy-to-let properties were purchased by landlords in March 2016, just before the latest stamp duty changes came into effect on 1st April, which is good news for our motivated applicants. In theory this should translate into greater choice for tenants over the coming months.

Indeed, the data published by Rightmove showed an increase of 11.5%* in the number of UK rental properties becoming available in April to rent across the UK; in London, this figure was a notable 9.1%*.

Clearly, having a wider range of properties to choose from is a good thing for tenants. However, it will be some time before supply of rental property meets demand from tenants in the London areas we cover.

Our Jackson-Stops & Staff London network markets a fantastic variety of rental properties, which range from centrally located studio apartments through to substantial family houses within catchment of well-regarded schools. If you are a landlord looking for friendly and up-to-date advice from experienced experts then please do contact your local branch, we would be delighted to help.

To find out how much stamp duty will cost you on your buy-to-let property, please take a look at our latest Stamp Duty Calculator.

Make the most of outdoor features to add value this summer

Filed under: Latest News — JSS London @ 2:34 pm

Tim Firth, director of sales at Jackson-Stops & Staff’s Weybridge branch, provides insight into the value outdoor features can add to your home.

Image 1

Detached House for sale Matham Road, KT8

We are now firmly into the busy spring property market season, and for those looking to sell their home in the commuter belt it is essential they ensure buyers are able to imagine themselves making good, active use of their home’s garden. A good-size private garden, on average, adds 15% to the selling price of a property in the Surrey area, so making the most of it by ensuring it is well-maintained and various areas of focus (for example, a patio area for entertaining and BBQs or an area with equipment such as swings for children) are clearly defined, will ensure the outdoor space does add its potential value. Demand for homes with lovely gardens and other outdoor features fluctuates with the seasons. During the colder months potential buyers on a viewing rarely venture into the garden, unable to imagine what it will be like in the summer when they will be looking to make the most of it. However, at this time of the year an attractive and functional garden space holds much more significance.

Onslow

Detached House for sale Onslow Road, KT12

When it comes to outdoor features, those looking to purchase property in the private estates of Weybridge, Esher, Cobham and Oxshott will often be swayed by a tennis court. They are particularly attractive to families with children who have regular lessons and want to hone their skills further and, of course, a tennis court is great for entertainment. Tennis courts can add around £50,000 to the price of a home. When looking to sell it is important to ensure the tennis court has a well-maintained appearance, which will help prospective buyers imagine themselves making use of it. If it is perceived as needing a lot of work and upkeep, a buyer might not feel it is worth the significant premium.

Swimming pools tend to deter a number of buyers due to the high level of

maintenance involved, but in the right area and for the right type of buyer who sees the benefits, they can add value to a property, in the region of £100,000. Large homes in the Surrey area with swimming pools are highly sought after by families, but it is essential that they are perceived as safe. Ways to achieve this include fencing or a walk-on cover.

Now is the ideal time to put your home on the market, so make sure your garden is well-maintained and ready for the summer.

A Word from our Mayfair Sales Manager, Nicholas Austin

Nicholas Austin, Sales Manager, Mayfair

Nicholas Austin, Sales Manager, Mayfair

Ever since the Edwardian era, Indian families have chosen to own property in Mayfair.  It is reported that approximately 3,000 Indian families choose to live in the area and during the last six months we have seen a huge increase in the number of Indian buyers offering on property though our Jackson-Stops & Staff office on Curzon Street.  It could be that The Lodha Group’s recent purchase of the Canadian Embassy on Grosvenor Square has put Mayfair firmly back on the map – I, for one, am excited to see that rejuvenation works have now commenced to the building. However, there is also long, established history in the area, with The Washington Hotel, Flemings Hotel and The May Fair Hotel all being owned by Indian families.  In these uncertain economic times, Mayfair remains the safest place by far to invest one’s money; capital growth in recent years has commanded better yields than banks’ savings accounts, meaning that people continue to want to be in Mayfair to ensure a sound investment for their future.  We have seen a 75% increase in the number of Indian buyers registered with us and they are typically looking at purchases between the 8-12 million pound price bracket. As the next few months unfold and with the uncertainty surrounding Britain’s position within the European community, I believe we will see increased activity in the Mayfair property market as people flock back to the established safety of this area. Finally, if tea in one of Mayfair’s many five star hotels is a little out of the budget then I can highly recommend the newly opened Café Mish, owned by Gush Jutley and located in the historic Shepherd’s Market, which is well worth a visit.

Little AcornsThis week we are delighted to be celebrating the ten year work anniversary of Georgina Clarke, the wonderful Lettings Director of our Pimlico and Westminster branch.

Georgina began working for Jackson-Stops & Staff back in 2006 and since then the team has gone from strength to strength. We believe this is largely down to the established working relationship that Georgina enjoys with her colleague, Harry Buchanan, Director of Sales.

The pair share strongly-held values about the way they like to do things and have built a reputation for providing an excellent, trusted and highly personal service to their clients. Georgina is passionate about the area in which she works – everything from the beautiful architecture to the friendly community spirit.Family Tree

Congratulations on your ten years, Georgina!

Guide to Buying a New Build Home

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 11:40 am

Detached House for sale Mayfield Road, Weybridge, KT13

Detached House for sale Mayfield Road, Weybridge, KT13

Buying a home is perhaps the most important purchase you will ever make and the Jackson-Stops & Staff Residential Development team will offer you all the support you need throughout the purchase process.

There are 4 key stages in buying a new build home:

  1. The Reservation Process
  2. The Conveyancing Process
  3. Exchange of Contracts
  4. Completion

 

Stage 1: The Reservation Process

When you have chosen your property, you will usually need to complete a reservation form. This will clearly set out the agreed price for the property and the time by which contracts must be exchanged. The reservation will also be subject to paying a reservation fee, at which point the chosen property will usually be removed from the market and a period of exclusivity granted. However, if you fail to exchange contracts within the stipulated time frame the property may go back onto the market and you may lose your deposit and incurred costs, such as legal fees.

Ensure you have received a copy of the Consumer Code for Home Builders, as this sets the mandatory requirements that all Home Builders must meet in their marketing and selling of New Homes and their after-sales customer service. It also sets out the terms by which any deposit will be held.

Stage 2: The Conveyancing Process

NB. This assumes a 28 day exchange deadline

Week One

  • Instruct a solicitor/firm of solicitors and establish who will be dealing with your purchase
  • Put your instructed solicitor in cleared funds so searches can be applied for. These can take up to 28 days to be returned, so it is vital this is done without delay.
  • Complete the mandatory checks for Anti Money Laundering Regulations with your solicitor
  • Apply for a mortgage (if applicable)
  • Put your mortgage provider/financial adviser in funds for your survey/valuation fees
  • If you have a related sale, ensure that your buyer will not delay the exchange of contracts deadline

Week Two

  • Ask your solicitor to raise any enquiries
  • Ensure that an appointment is scheduled for your survey/valuation

Week Three

  • Check with your mortgage provider/financial adviser that your survey/valuation has been carried out and when you expect to receive your mortgage offer
  • Check with your solicitor
    • Any enquiries have been responded to
    • All searches have been received and that any enquiries arising from the searches have been raised
  • Put your solicitor in cleared funds of your deposit and in sufficient time to achieve your exchange deadline.

Week Four

  • Ensure your mortgage offer has been received
  • Make an appointment with your solicitor to sign appropriate documentation for the contract and mortgage offer

 

Stage 3: Exchange Contracts

During the reservation period, your solicitor would have undertaken the entire necessary due diligence to enable you to be in a position to formally exchange contracts. When all parties are happy with the agreements, the contracts can be formally exchanged at which time you will sign the contract and pay the deposit, which is usually 10% of the purchase price. After exchange of contracts you are legally bound to purchase the property.

37 studio, one, and two bedroom loft apartments in a Victorian Warehouse Conversion in Vauxhall. Prices from £450,000

Stage 4: Completion

At the time the initial reservation deposit is paid, an approximate completion date will have been given. This is often nothing more than a season in a given year (ie. summer/autumn) or an approximate date in the future. Depending on the timescale of the development, you may receive a revised target date for completion after exchange of contracts.

You will be served with a completion notice via your solicitor which will formalise the date you will be expected to complete. The period of time between this notice and your completion date will have been set at exchange of contracts.

During this period you will need to:

  • Ensure mortgage funds are available. Your solicitor will liaise with your lender once notice has been received but it would be prudent to converse with your IFA or mortgage adviser.
  • Put your solicitor in funds for completion. This will be the purchase price, less the sum of deposits and reservation fees already paid.

Sold on Chelsea

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , — JSS London @ 11:43 am

We are delighted to welcome the newest members of our Chelsea Sales team, Toby Whittome and Judy Wykeham, who will be working alongside our successful Lettings team, Stephen Pamnani and Chloe Cooper, at our Cadogan Street office. Toby and Judy have worked together for many years and bring with them a wealth of Sales experience within the Chelsea property market.

Introducing Toby Whittome, Sales Director, Jackson-Stops & Staff Chelsea:

JSS Chelsea Staff Feb 2016-65

Toby Whittome, Sales Director

Toby has worked in Prime Central London for nearly 20 years and has a superb knowledge of the local area, specialising in Chelsea and Belgravia. Toby’s experience includes acting for clients at all levels for both the sale and acquisition of London properties. Before joining Jackson-Stops & Staff, Toby was a Partner at another major Central London firm where he became well known for his very personal approach and careful attention to his clients’ requirements as well as his in-depth knowledge of property, the market and ability to achieve the very best prices for his clients.

After studying ancient history and philosophy at university, Toby went on to develop his love of sailing. Indeed, this particular passion has seen him sail approximately 6,000 miles across the Pacific from French Polynesia to Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Borneo and across to Singapore; he has also sailed across the Mediterranean. Toby lives with his wife Emma and two daughters, Millicent and Eva, on the same farm in West Sussex where he was brought up. At the weekend he loves to spend time with his family as well as working on the farm and enjoying many of the usual country pursuits, including shooting and fly fishing. Toby himself comments that “I am extremely excited about joining Jackson-Stops & Staff – it is a highly respected brand with a long established office in Chelsea which is ideally placed to provide clients with a very personal and tailor made service.”     

Introducing Judy Wykeham, Sales Manager, Jackson-Stops & Staff Chelsea:

JSS Chelsea Staff Feb 2016-49

Judy Wykeham, Sales Manager

Judy began her career in property about 17 years ago and witnessed many exciting changes in the prime central London property market; during that time, she learnt how certain areas attracted certain types of purchasers with varying demands and saw new build developments standing next to refurbishment projects of Victorian flats or houses – sometimes on a dizzying scale.  Judy believes it is London’s deserved reputation for being a safe, international city with strong infrastructure, great educational facilities and fabulous shops and restaurants, combined with the world renowned museums and parks, which have always made it the best city to live and work in, with the Borough of Chelsea and South Kensington being particularly desirable.

Judy brings a valuable international perspective to her role, as she hasn’t always lived in London; she was born in Singapore and grew up in Malaysia, with a sojourn of some fourteen years in the Netherlands. As an expat through and through, she believes it is this which has stood her in good stead with international clients and that being able to understand the complexities of moving house and country – and swapping into different educational systems – has proven invaluable. Besides property, Judy has a real passion for fast cars – in particular, pre-1964 sports cars, having had the privilege of racing a Cobra 289 for a number of years… she can confirm that it’s not as easy as it looks. As Judy herself says, ‘I’m hugely excited about my new role at Jackson-Stops & Staff in Chelsea and very much look forward to racing around the Borough on behalf of my clients and buyers – but never above 30 mph’.
