Chartham Parish Council has successfully purchased Chartham Village Green, uniting its existing leasehold with the freehold. Finn's and Warners Solicitors LLP advised The Trustees of Mrs Day’s Estate and offered the Parish Council the opportunity to acquire this land in order to safeguard its future as a public space for the community.
The Parish Council will be discussing applying for formal Village Green Status for the land at the next Parish Council meeting on Tuesday 14 February, to further protect the land for the local community for generations to come.
January gave us all the warm feelings!
The property market has been moving along this month as we help homes find their buyers. When offers were accepted at Nailbourne Cottage in Kingston, we realised that Finn's sales team has achieved more than £4m in property sales in this single village alone over the past 12 months.
Emergency property issues aren’t good for tenants or landlords, and the best way to safeguard against these potential nightmares is to take preventative measures before they arise. Then you can sleep soundly at night in the knowledge that you have done everything you can to drastically decrease the odds of a costly, dangerous, or life-threatening emergency.
When most people hear the phrase – interest rate rise, they immediately panic and worry about higher bills and extra expenses at the end of each month, then have a good rant about how horrid and expensive everything is getting. Every cloud has a silver lining, though, and the good news is this could do a lot of good for the housing market.
Less is more when it comes to decorating your house for a quick sale. Everybody has their own unique style and taste, so the best solution is to keep things neutral and simple. This means that your potential buyers feel that without too much effort, your house can become the home they want to live in. More importantly, this creates the perception of a well-cared-for home that will not need too much work. A great starting point is a good deep clean to make your home as desirable as possible.
