  • Deposit Protection – How Much?? - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    Within 50 Miles Close More News Deposit Protection How Much Tweet Fri 21 Mar 2014 I returned after a week away from the office well not emails to find on my desk the renewal notice for Bradleys Membership of the TDS the government approved deposit protection scheme It was a good job I had already sat down as the bill was huge but then I thought actually our membership now protects about 1600 Tenant deposits to the value of 1 2 Million at any one time It is when I looked at the number of disputes that were referred to the TDS Independent Case Examiner that it was confirmed that Bradleys were involved in only 1 25 of deposits sent to TDS pending a dispute and less than 1 went on to be resolved by adjudication You will understand why that in this day and age when we are all looking for value for money I felt this it is a lot of money for a service rarely used in full Of course our membership of an approved scheme is required by law and provides complete peace of mind to both Tenants and their Landlords that in the event of an irreconcilable dispute there is access to a completely independent arbitrator to pass a sound award judgment Where we do get value from TDS however is from an excellent source of staff training and helpful advice in unusual circumstances that can often arise in administering deposits back to tenants or awards to Landlords The real unsung heroes in all of this though are my Property Management Vacate Team in Head office This team are dedicated to ensuring the right and fair result for all parties at the end of a tenancy It is their commitment and tenacity that ensures that

  • Why I am backing the Buy to Let Market - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    bleak prospect of an under performing pension plan At that time having sold my estate agency business I decided to invest in something tangible which led me to my decision to purchase a portfolio of property to rent out Fast forward to 2014 and comparing my traditional pension plan performance yes I have kept up the payments and my property portfolio performance it is very clear to me which of the pension provisions has performed to my expectations yes you ve guessed it my rentals portfolio Looking forward again it seems obvious to me the time is now right to add to my property portfolio for three main reasons To explain Being a bit of a stats nerd back in 1999 having reviewed house price trends since 1960 it was clear at that time that an exaggerated house price increase trend was overdue The housing market record between 2000 and 2007 is well documented Looking back at this graph and bringing this up to date we may be back to a similar starting point as in 2000 On the income front I believe there is still an overdue rebalance of the property market despite the Help to Buy schemes low interest rates etc The volume of rental occupation versus home ownership is set to grow for the foreseeable future My third point is that having come through a disruptive finance based recession where big question marks have been placed on the financial services industries I feel I am better served with an investment I can touch and feel such as bricks and mortar rather than a paper based investment that can be traded around the world and be at the mercy of middle men each taking their cut at each turn Hindsight is a wonderful thing and no doubt in

  • March is the Golden Month - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    12 Mar 2014 I have been saying all year that the time to buy is now The market is rising and mortgages are both cheap and available There is a demand for property and there is still a choice with our offices still carrying good stocks of property for sale One of our Senior Mortgage Advisors summed it up perfectly yesterday when he said that March is the Golden Month in addition to the things I have already stated he pointed out that new MMR come into effect next month where mortgage applications will be judged on affordability more than just straight income criteria This will involve more checking and analysis of the person and their spending habits in addition to their income and he thought that inevitably mortgages will take longer to process and become more difficult to obtain There is still time to buy and get your mortgage in place before the new legislation comes in so don t delay Right now buying a property is the best thing to do and it will never be this affordable or accessible again I am certainly aware that the buyers down here in the South West know that as sales have risen steeply in March This is a great opportunity for anyone thinking of selling because the buyers are about they are serious and in a position to buy If you are thinking of selling and would like to take advantage of Bradleys free valuation offer then email our Customer Services Department at customerservices beagroup co uk and they will be pleased to book an appointment for you with your local office Bradleys have 33 Offices spanning between Taunton and Penzance so can help you where ever you are based If you want to know more about Bradleys before booking

  • Help to Buy is working! - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    the current scheme designed to help the property market back on its feet I personally am very grateful for their help as all that have been involved in the property market over the past 7 years know it has been a tough time I know the buyers in the South West where wages can be lower and prices higher are now able to buy who previously had no hope what so ever are even more grateful so we should all congratulate the Government on an excellent piece of work There is no doubt that the scheme is just a short term fix and the longer term repair to the UK property market must come in the form of building more homes I can only assume that if the politicians have understood that requirement and will be working towards that as the long term goal It s a pretty basic supply and demand equation if there are more buyers than houses then the prices will be driven up and the shorter the supply the higher the prices will go If the Government really want to control the market to maintain it at a sustainable level them more homes are going to be needed over the next few years at a faster rate than we have ever seen before Stamp Duty used to be an irritation to buyers but at its current rates it is now a serious consideration for buyers and certainly does prevent some buyers from buying the property they could otherwise have afforded If the Government are serious about helping the market then they should also lift price of exempt from stamp duty to 200K Again here in the South West where our prices tend to be driven up by second home owners it would be a relief to

  • The time is right and the time is now! - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    will quickly calculate that it is generally cheaper to buy than to rent and you will eventually in 25 years time end up with a property where you do not have to pay either a mortgage or rent I have said before this year that mortgages are incredibly cheap and available property is starting to move up and will be a sound investment over the coming years There is confidence back in the market and Mark Carney has again said he will hold on to interest rates even if unemployment goes below 7 It really doesn t get any better than this and if you are thinking of selling to move up in the market then now is the time as there is a good supply of buyers and the longer you delay the jump the wider the gap in price will become as the increase stretches the prices in a rising market To be sure of getting the right price and achieving a sale make sure you use an agent with a good track record Thanks to allAgents co uk it is easy to identify who to trust with your most expensive asset and also who can make it happen for you At this point you will see by looking at allAgents co uk that Bradleys are ranked 3rd out of over 12 000 agents in the country for delivering customer service Remember always use an agent others have been happy with they will have certainly valued the property correctly in the first place to enable the deal to be done If you over price an instruction it will go stale and you will end up having to reduce your price whilst the type of property you wanted to trade up to will have increased and possibly moved out
