One of the highlights of our work is getting to meet all of our clients' furry friends. Our pets give us unconditional love and companionship so naturally we all want to do everything we can to protect them from being scared and distressed.

 

Every year, Bonfire Night brings delight to adults and children alike all over the country as the loud whizzes, bangs and flashes of colour in the sky amaze and enthral them. Our furry friends however are often less enamoured by the sight and sound of fireworks.

 

Here are a few things that you can do to help your pet to cope with fireworks.

Halloween is a great opportunity to embrace spooky decorations and have some fun. However, if you're planning to sell your home, you might be concerned about how your Halloween decorations could affect the opinions of prospective buyers. 

 

Here are some suggestions on how to decorate your home for Halloween and still keep it appealing to buyers.

In 2022, there were 192,060 reported home burglaries in the UK, averaging 526 burglaries daily. These disheartening statistics underscore the importance of taking proactive steps to protect our homes and possessions.

The saying "prevention is better than cure" holds true. While the police work diligently to combat burglary, there are several things we can do too to decrease the risk of us falling victim to this invasive crime.

 

 

Moving home can be a daunting and stressful experience, but with the right information and advice, the whole process can be made easier, smoother, and less anxiety-inducing. Google can be a great source of information and is the first place many of us turn with a question, so with that in mind, we thought we would share our answers to the three most asked home moving questions on Google.

 

Council Tax

According to Google the most-searched question related to moving is about Council Tax.

 

The amount of Council Tax you pay depends on your local council and the area or 'band' you reside in. Fortunately, obtaining this information has become easier in recent years; you can find the specific Council Tax band and rate for your new home on the gov.uk website by simply entering your postcode.

Estate and letting agents are now legally obligated to include what is considered 'material information' in their property listings. This includes disclosing the Council Tax band and rate, ensuring that potential homebuyers and renters are aware of this important information.

Autumn has definitely arrived, bringing with it a flurry of motivated homebuyers and sellers who would like to get their home-moving journey well underway before Christmas. 



If you are considering putting your property on the market, then now is an excellent time. Many people think of autumn as a second New Year. The start of the academic year feels like a fresh start, leading to a jump in interest in the property market.
