Rishi Rubber Stamps Homes Duty Holiday Extension!

It’s happened – after lots of rumours, and arguments for and against the continuation of the Stamp Duty Holiday in England and Northern Ireland, Chancellor Rishi Sunak yesterday announced that the Stamp Duty Holiday will be extended until the end of June… and then there will be a further extension to September with different terms.

We firmly believe the news from this week’s budget is great for homebuyers in Gloucestershire who may have been concerned that their transactions would not complete in time to take advantage of the savings – and of course, it also means that some pressure will be lifted on conveyancers, surveyors and lenders.

The original Stamp Duty Holiday in July 2020 was a shot in the arm for the property market with homebuyers positively flocking to take advantage of it.

It was a major boost to the whole market and now this further extension and also the introduction of the new mortgage guarantee scheme will further boost the property sector.

Stamp Duty Holiday Extended

Stamp Duty is a tax on property, with certain amounts needing to be paid dependent on the price of a property. Back in July last year, Mr Sunak told homebuyers that they no longer needed to pay it on the purchase of a main home up to £500,000.

This was fantastic news and boosted the market across the UK – something that was very much needed during these uncertain times.

As the budget approached, there has been much speculation and even petitions calling on the Stamp Duty Holiday to be extended – and finally it has been, until June 30, 2021.

And there’s more!

After June, the price point at which you need to pay Stamp Duty will be £250,000 (originally it was £125,000). After that, from October 1, it’s back to normal and down to £125,000.
This should reduce worries about whether purchases agreed will miss the original deadline for the nil-rate tax.

We believe that Stamp Duty should be due for a more comprehensive overhaul long-term, so expect this to remain in the news over the coming months! Meanwhile, if you’re thinking of selling your property in Gloucestershire, there’s still time to get moving.

Mortgage Guarantee Scheme from April

In addition to the headline-grabbing news about Stamp Duty, Chancellor Rishi Sunak also announced that the Government would guarantee 95 per cent mortgages for property purchases up to £600,000.

This is stellar news because lenders should now have the confidence to lend as the Government will back portions of the mortgages. If you are a first-time buyer wanting to get on to the property ladder, it means you do not have to save quite as much money for a deposit.

This is excellent news for first-time buyers, who want to get on the property ladder and for existing homeowners who want to re-mortgage to release equity or to trade-up.

8 Questions Every Landlord Should Ask a Prospective Tenant

When you’re renting out your property in Gloucestershire, you want to get things right. After all, it’s your property, and you want to ensure it is going to be looked after and that the rent is going to be paid. It’s a business, and you don’t want any interruptions to occupancy.

So, to help you, our experienced team at TG Sales & Lettings have come up with eight questions that you should ask a prospective tenant before agreeing to rent your property to them.

  1. When are they able to move in?

You want continuity of occupancy as it makes sense from a financial and security point of view. If one prospective tenant can’t move in for a few months, but another can, this will help you make a decision on who to let your property to. You need to be on top of your game when it comes to efficiency. If a prospective tenant can move in immediately, but you haven’t got the gas safety or electrical safety inspections done, this will cause issues.

  1. Do their finances stack up?

You don’t want timewasters looking at your rental property. Respectfully ask if they are aware of the rent amount and whether they fully expect to be able to pay it on time, and on the right dates. There’s the deposit too, so make sure they know what’s expected. Your lettings agent will ensure thorough financial checks are carried out.

  1. How long do they think they will want to live in the property?

This is a good question. You don’t want to be going through the process of finding a tenant every six months. Likewise, some people will be looking for long-term tenancies, so see who expects to be in a property for an extended period. The contract length could be advantageous for both parties. Be prepared to be flexible.

  1. Do they have pets?

Some landlords don’t mind pets, and this may be you. However, pets are also a big no-no for some landlords. If you don’t want to accept tenants with animals, you must be sure that having a pet is not on their future agenda. Similarly, if you don’t mind pets, you need to make sure the contract stipulates what sort of pet, if any, is allowed. If you do allow a pet, your agreement should make it clear that any damages caused by the pet must be rectified by the tenant at their cost.

  1. What would their current landlord say about them?

References are crucial! When you or your lettings agent speak with your prospective tenant, you hope you will get a genuine answer. References will clarify this though. Listen to your prospective tenants’ responses with a critical ear as not everyone will be honest!

  1. Why are they moving?

Again, you might not always get a genuine reply, but the answer will give you an indication as to what sort of tenant they might be. This question can also be a good ice breaker and will start the conversation.

  1. What sort of lifestyle do they lead?

This is a tricky question to ask, but useful nonetheless. You’ll get a feel for the sort of people your prospective tenants are. If they appear to be young, 24-hour party people, you should consider whether your property and location are right for them.

  1. What other properties have they looked at in Gloucestershire

This is a question that can be asked either at the start of a conversation or at the end. You’re trying to ascertain whether they are serious about moving to the area, to your property or if they are just ‘tyre kickers’. They might also say that your property is the only place for them, which is great if everything stacks up financially.

Remember, you don’t have to have a definitive list of questions and formally run through them. These questions can be wound into your regular conversation!

If you’re unsure of what to ask prospective tenants, please get in touch with us on 01452 300822. We have been offering a professional lettings and management service for many years and can guide you. After all, we are the experts in the Gloucestershire area for lettings.

 

What’s Happening in the UK Property Market

And so, we are at the end of February already, and what a busy month we have had at TG Sales & Lettings.

Hot News: Stamp Duty Holiday To Be Extended

The Stamp Duty holiday has caused a huge increase in people wanting to move in the Gloucestershire area before the deadline on 31st March. Unfortunately, conveyancing back-logs and delays in land searches have led to the probability of some buyers missing out.

However, as part of his budget plans, Rishi Sunak is now poised to move the deadline from 31st March to the end of June to avoid people scrambling to complete their transactions by the end of March.

This is good news for the property industry as it will help keep the market buoyant, but it remains to be seen whether this is simply just delaying the inevitable.

For now though, it looks like Gloucestershire buyers will have some further relief.

Lockdown Demand Still Evident

This series of lockdowns over the past year has certainly made home movers think more about where they want to live and what type of property they want to live in.

We are seeing demand for bigger gardens, and for houses with extra bedrooms, studies or garden offices in particular.

Conversely, other home movers are thinking about whether they actually need the space they have currently and whether they could downsize. This all makes for a buoyant market which has certainly seen some big changes over the past year!

Market Attraction for Landlords

According to reports in the Buy Association, the Stamp Duty holiday, combined with relatively low interest rates has seen more and more investors look to the buy-to-let sector.

The research particularly highlights the fact that it is the small companies and the first-time landlords that are being attracted to the opportunities.

If you are interested in investing, we have suitable properties waiting!

Positive News for First Timers

Moneyfacts reports that “the number of mortgage deals available to those with a 10% deposit increased by 117 during the first six weeks of 2021”.

The website, which is very useful if you are interested in finance and money-related matters, says that this is very positive news for first-time buyers. The report goes on to say that the “number of lenders offering mortgages to those with a 10% deposit – at a 90% loan-to-value (LTV) – has also increased from 32 to 47 during this same period”.

With more mortgage deals available, now could be a great time to step onto the property ladder for first time buyers.

House Prices Cooling?

According to the Halifax bank, house prices fell slightly in January, so does this mean there are early signs that the property market is cooling?

Russell Galley, Managing Director, Halifax, said: “The average UK house price slipped by -0.3% in January, the biggest monthly fall since April last year. Whilst this pushed the typical property value down to its lowest level since October, at just under £252,000, prices are around £13,000 higher than a year ago.”

At TG Sales & Lettings we are finding that properties are not remaining on the market for long and are selling for close to asking price. There are fluctuations in the market of course, but we’re pretty confident you can achieve the price you want!

Rental Enquiries On The Up

Research from Paragon Bank shows that residential landlords reported increased levels of enquiries last year.

According to Property Reporter, Paragon’s research showed that “tenant demand reached a five-year high during last year – the highest level since the first quarter of 2016 – as almost a third of landlords reported rising levels of enquiries for rental accommodation”.

This is good news for landlords, and for those thinking about becoming a landlord. Get in touch and we’ll give you some pointers to the type of properties that are good to let out – and with good yields too!

6 Budget-Friendly Home Decor Ideas for Your Gloucestershire Property

6-budget-friendly-home-decor-tips-for-your-property

In these days of easy access to drool-worthy home decor inspo on Pinterest and Instagram, we’ve all suffered a case of design envy. Although these design ideas aren’t unachievable, many people get put off by the mere thought of how much redecorating their own home could actually cost.

As your local Gloucestershire estate agent, we see stunning homes in Gloucestershire every day and we’re here to tell you that it’s very much possible to create an envy-inducing home of your own without breaking the bank!

You just need to get a little creative and take a few risks along the way.

Read on for our top 6 home decor ideas that are easy on your wallet:

 

  1. First, kick off with a deep clean

We know, cleaning up isn’t exactly a decorating tip. But, hear us out here. Our experienced team of negotiators at TG Sales & Lettings are all in agreement that a good decluttering session is the first step to transforming any room. By getting rid of all your clutter, you’ll get a much better idea of the space you’re working with. It also makes it easier to think of a coherent decor scheme, and you could get rid of some of the more dated design elements along the way.

The best part? Cleaning and decluttering don’t cost a thing.

 

  1. Invest in some mirrors to open up a room

What’s one of the easiest ways to ‘add space’ to a room? Simply hang some mirrors.

Mirrors create the illusion of space by reflecting light, making smaller rooms instantly appear more spacious. Invest in some unique mirrors with interesting effects, and you’ll be adding style, light and space in one go.

And you don’t need to invest a lot. There are some great charity shops in Gloucestershire  so head on over and upcycle old mirrors with a new frame or fresh paint.

 

  1. Add some natural green

Amp up the style and the feel-good vibe of your home in Gloucestershire by adding some cute indoor plants in quirky pots. Not only will they add some colour, but plants will also purify the air, and they’re known to boost your mood.

Plants aren’t pricey and can last for ages with care and love. Pop to the garden centre and buy local or check out online plant stores.

We’re not all green-fingered, so if you are worried about accidentally killing your plants, choose low-maintenance options such as jade or aloe vera that practically take care of themselves. Invest in a couple of statement pieces for the main living areas and dot smaller potted succulents around your bedroom and kitchen. Even your bathroom will benefit from a bit of green.

 

  1. Style your bed

Yes, your bed is primarily for sleeping and lounging, and the occasional Netflix binge, but it can also be a statement style piece for your bedroom. And dressing it up won’t break the bank.

Get yourself some gorgeous new bed linen and an assortment of quirky cushions. Add a season-appropriate throw – furry for winter and bright/light for summer – to add a more cosy style.

If you’re feeling creative and don’t have a headboard, consider painting one on the blank wall behind your bed. It’s cheap and can easily be painted over whenever you fancy a change.

 

  1. Search for bargains online

Google makes bargain hunting a lot easier than it’s ever been, and home decor is a category where you can find some of the best bargains online. You’ll be surprised at just how many gems you can find on sites like eBay and Gumtree. If you’re prepared to go for second-hand or ‘pre-loved’ items, you can get your hands on quality furniture pieces for a lot less.

If you’re prepared to drive over for pickups, some online sellers are even willing to give away large items for free.

 

  1. Give your walls a fresh lick of paint

Despite what some people may assume, you don’t need to be a DIY expert to paint a room in your home. Give any room a quick spruce with a fresh lick of paint. Or be bold and transform any space by painting a statement wall. This involves painting just one wall with a different colour or design, so it becomes the focal point of the room. You can also use wallpaper to create an interesting statement wall.

A tin of paint or a roll of wallpaper is not expensive, and it’ll take just a few hours to make a significant style impact.

Once you’ve spruced up your property in Gloucestershire, give us a call at TG Sales & Lettings and we’ll be delighted to give you a free valuation. We can be reached at rachel@tgres.co.uk or 01452 300822.

A Quick Guide to Purchasing a Buy To Let Property in Gloucestershire

A Quick Guide to Purchasing a Buy To Let Property in Gloucestershire

If you’re considering becoming a landlord, there are many elements to consider and understand before you purchase a property. The process of buying a buy-to-let property differs compared to buying a residential property that you will live in yourself, so it’s good to know what exactly to expect. Of course, it’s a long-term investment that shouldn’t be made in haste, so if you’re reading this, you are probably looking for the right kind of information.

Our team at TG Sales & Lettings are experts in buy-to-let advice, so here is our straight forward guide to purchasing a buy-to-let property in Gloucestershire.

What is buy-to-let?

First things first, the basics: buy-to-let is a property that is specifically purchased with the intention to rent it out to tenants. It’s an investment property that can generate a monthly income, as long as the rent being charged is higher than the monthly buy-to-let mortgage payments.

A buy-to-let mortgage is different to a residential mortgage, and if you can’t afford to simply buy the property outright, you will need to apply for one. When applying for a standard mortgage, your income is taken into consideration, whereas with a buy-to-let loan, the lender considers the potential rental income as your primary income source, and considers your personal income as secondary. The interest rates tend to be lower, but they have larger upfront fees, so keep that in mind. Moreover, deposits on buy-to-let mortgages are also typically larger than the deposit needed for a standard mortgage, so expect to put down at least 25% more than you normally would.

What kind of buy-to-let property should you buy?

The right property is important and can include factors such as the location in proximity to amenities and transport, as well as the neighbourhood and the demand in the area. Much like when you’re searching for your own place to live, you should ensure you do adequate research into the area you want your buy-to-let property to be located in.

Consider what kind of tenant you want to target and include that in your research. If you’re trying to rent to families, your best bet is to find a property in the suburbs close to good schools. If you want to rent to students, a property near a university and good but cheap restaurants and nightlife is key. Keep in mind, the type of tenants you have renting from you can affect your mortgage, as many lenders have restrictions on student rentals, for example.

Do you need buy-to-let insurance?

The short answer is yes; you should have buy-to-let insurance (also known as landlord insurance). It gives you coverage for the building and the contents inside and any landlord liabilities.

Building insurance is often required by your mortgage lender in order to secure a loan and will compensate you if your property is destroyed or damaged. This will cover the repairs or rebuilding costs so you don’t have to pay huge expenses out of pocket.

 

Contents insurance will cover any furniture inside the property. It’s a smart idea to get contents insurance even if your buy-to-let property is unfurnished because you can choose what level of cover you require, and it can protect any curtains, carpets, and other furnishings that essentially come with your property between tenants. If you choose to rent your property unfurnished, your tenants will be responsible for their own contents insurance when they move in.

Landlord liability is mostly your choice, but if you’re renting to students, for example, there may be a minimum level required. This covers you for any injuries or deaths of any tenants or visitors in your property.

Do you need to use a letting agent?

This answer is dependent on the budget you’re working with and the level of involvement you wish to have with your buy-to-let property. If you want to be a very hands-on landlord, you may not want to go through a letting agent or agency, but if you would rather take a more hands-off approach, it is a good idea to enlist the help of a professional, experienced lettings agency.

Letting agents like us will help you carry out credit checks on your potential tenants, help you come up with a letting contract, chase late rental payments for you, help with any maintenance on site that needs to be done, and assist with mandatory safety and efficiency checks for gas and energy.

The fees to work with a letting agent typically include paying an ongoing fee to manage the property which varies, so it’s always best to speak with your chosen letting agent to get a complete idea of costs .

Generally, utilising the services of a letting agent can take a big burden off your shoulders if you are a budding landlord!

A kitchen with the ‘wow’ factor can sell a property. But what about your bathroom?

It’s probably fair to say that if your bathroom is rocking an avocado or peach suite against a backdrop of lurid pink tiles, then it’s pretty out-dated and, unfortunately if you are selling your home in Gloucestershire, this can stop potential buyers in their tracks.

Most of us like a modern touch within our homes – after all this is the 21st century – and it’s nice to feel like you are actually living in the correct century, so even if you are not looking to sell your property in Gloucestershire, but are perhaps in the process of purchasing a new home, renovating your bathroom will allow you to get creative and achieve a fresh new look.

Here are four major benefits a bathroom remodel can offer:

 

1. You will see an increase in the value of your home

Even a small remodel such as replacing the suite and adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls will add value to your property. The majority of properties that undergo renovations in important areas such as the bathroom (or kitchen) end up seeing an increase in value as it improves the appearance and appeal of your home overall.

 

2. You will save money

If you are renovating due to the need to replace damaged, faulty or old bathroom furniture such as a leaking toilet, rusty radiator or inefficient boiler then you will save money by replacing these with more energy-efficient solutions.

 

3. You will feel more relaxed

It’s not only your home that will benefit. Your bathroom will become your oasis of calm. If you are used to attempting to chill out in an unattractive, messy, old-fashioned bathroom in various shades of pastel, imagine how it will feel to unwind in a brand new warm and modern space decorated in soothing colours designed to help you fully relax. Your new bathroom can give you that experience.

 

4. You will reduce clutter

A lack of storage invites clutter, so your renovation should involve incorporating plenty of storage solutions. A tidy bathroom is a tidy mind!

If you’re planning to sell your home in Gloucestershire soon, remember that buyers will always appreciate an updated and clean bathroom and you may end up achieving a higher offer for your property too!

Government announces new protections for renters

news - Government announces new protections for renters

As the pandemic continues the Government has announced new measures for the Private Rented Sector which includes updates to the COVID-19 guidance on home moving and the possession action process.

Here are the key information points:-

  • Renters will continue to be supported during the new national restrictions with an extension of the ban on bailiff enforcement of evictions for all but the most serious cases for at least six weeks –up to the end of 21 February 2021 – with measures kept under review.
  • There are exemptions for the most serious cases which are illegal occupation, false statement, anti-social behaviour, perpetrators of domestic abuse in the social sector, where a property is unoccupied following death of a tenant and serious rent arrears greater than 6 months’ rent.
  • Court rules and procedures introduced in September in response to the pandemic remain in place and courts will continue to prioritise the most serious cases such as anti-social behaviour, illegal occupiers and those committing domestic abuse offences in the social sector.
  • All landlords will continue to be required to give six month notice periods to tenants until at least 31 March except in the most serious circumstances.
  • As well as this, a new mediation pilot will further support landlords and renters who face court procedures and potential eviction from next month (February). It will offer mediation as part of the possession process to try and help landlords and tenants to reach a mutual agreement and keep people in their homes.

 

Commenting on the announcement, Isobel Thomson, safeagent Chief Executive, said:

“As we continue to battle the pandemic, it is right that government look for ways to support those who need it most. The announcement of the mediation pilot is a welcome move, formalising what many of our agents have been successfully doing since the start of the outbreak, supporting landlords and their tenants experiencing financial hardship. By working with both parties and helping agree payment plans, agents have played a crucial role in ensuring tenancies are maintained. 

“While there is help for tenants, it is no less important that we also consider landlords who themselves may be suffering. If they go under who will house their tenants? We want to see support for every part of the sector – landlords and tenants – to ensure that the important role the PRS plays in providing a home to 20% of households in England is able to continue.”

Christmas Opening Hours & Protocol

INFORMATION FOR MANAGED TENANTS – WINTER PRECAUTIONS, INFORMATION & CHRISTMAS OPENING HOURS

 

Dear tenants

Winter precautions, office opening hours & protocol for emergencies during the festive period

As we are now within the winter months and approaching the festive holiday period, we wish to take this opportunity to contact all tenants to remind you of the precautions required to ensure that your home is safe and secure during the winter months.

Please ensure that your home is heated sufficiently during the cold months and we also advise that bathrooms and kitchens are adequately ventilated when in use to prevent the build-up of condensation/mould.

Should you have an outside tap in your home please ensure this is securely covered with insulation to stop the tap / pipework from freezing, which could result in a burst pipe damaging your home and contents.

As the festive period is a prime time for people to be away from home, we strongly request that if you are planning on leaving your home empty please ensure the heating is left on sufficiently to keep the property from getting too cold resulting in burst pipes.  The recommendation is that boilers are left on, on a permanent setting no lower than 10 degrees to help prevent pipes from freezing.

We would recommend that you arrange for a neighbour/friend to check the property on your behalf should you be away for more than two consecutive days during the winter months to ensure the landlords Building Insurance and your own Contents Insurance does not become void.

Should you have an emergency issue out of our office hours for the festive period, we do have local contractors on call who will attend to EMERGENCIES ONLY (damage to property or danger to life) at their own discretion. As the office will not be manned over the festive period then please email in to info@tgres.co.uk as this will be monitored regularly.  Please understand that there are limitations on what contractors can do over the festive period when suppliers/merchants are closed.

Please ensure that you are experiencing a true emergency (damage to property or danger to life) and that the issue cannot be resolved during our office opening hours. Please remember that if a contractor is called out as an emergency when this is not justified, you will unfortunately be liable for all costs which will be charged at bank holiday rates.

  • If you have a water leak then please TURN THE WATER OFF AT THE MAINS IMMEDIATELY. Please ensure you know where this is.
  • If you have a gas leak then please call TRANSCO IMMEDITATELY on 0800 111 999.
  • If you have total loss of water or electricity then please check your supplier’s website first as it may be a supply issue.

I LIVE IN GLOUCESTERSHIRE, CAN I STILL MOVE HOME IN TIER 2?

As we enter Tier 2 restrictions many people are wondering if you can still move home. The answer is Yes!
Yes, you can still move home. Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has said that estate and letting agents, and removals firms, can continue to operate.

In a message issued to the housing industry, he also announced that home-hunters are still allowed to go on property viewings, show homes and sales suites can remain open, and mortgage valuations and surveys can take place.

However, all parties involved in the home moving process must follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing and wearing a face covering. People outside your household or support bubble should not help with moving house unless absolutely necessary.

 

Can I book a removals firm?

 

Yes, removals firms are still able to do their jobs, but again, providing that all parties follow the safety guidelines. It’s advised, however, that you do as much of the packing as you can yourself, and if at all possible, give your belongings a quick spray or wipe-down with a disinfectant before they’re handled by someone else.
When the removals’ team is around, do your best to maintain distance and wash your hands regularly. Unfortunately you won’t be able to offer them refreshments – which of course they’ll understand.
It’s also recommended that you book your removals company as early as possible. In many areas they’re very busy and it may be a challenge for you to find one available at a short notice.

 

I’m in the middle of buying a home, should I expect any delays during lockdown?

 

It’s possible that in some areas the conveyancing process will be slower than usual right now.
This is because some solicitors and agents may be operating at limited capacity, or are very busy working through deals that have stacked up since earlier in the year.
If you’re about to enter into a legally binding contract, you should discuss the possible implications of one of the parties being affected by having to self-isolate or quarantine.  Ask your legal representative if they can include provisions to manage these risks in the contracts.
If someone in your household – or the other party’s – began to show any flu symptoms just as you’re about to complete, you’ll need to postpone things by a few weeks. The government says we should all remain flexible in this sort of scenario, so it would be ideal if your contracts can reflect that.

 

Can I go on a property viewing?

 

Yes, if you’re looking to move home, you can continue going to viewings. If you can, try to do a virtual viewing first though. It’ll reduce the number of viewings agents do, which also minimises the spread of germs. It could also save you time, because you’ll have a better idea of whether a house is worth seeing or not.
When viewing a property in person, make sure you wear a face mask, avoid touching surfaces, and wash your hands or use sanitiser before and after. There shouldn’t be more than two households within the property at any one time, and viewings should only be arranged by appointment, so ‘open houses’ aren’t happening at the moment.
If you’re selling your home and are having interested buyers come around to have a look, open all the inside doors beforehand so they don’t have to touch the door handles. It’s recommended that you’re not in the property during the viewing, and that you disinfect all surfaces after.
