Homeowners will be able to extend properties more easily instead of moving home.

 

 

In a surprise announcement on Saturday morning – just less than 24 hours after the Prime Minister resigned – the housing minister has confirmed that the temporary law has now been made permanent. The new relaxed law will allow more people to have a home they want without what he calls the “arduous” process of selling up and buying a larger property.

 

Under the rules, homeowners can put a single-storey rear extension on their property of up to six metres for terraced or semi-detached homes, or eight metres for detached homes.

 

Housing Minister Kit Malthouse MP says of this latest permitted development power: “[It] will help families extend their properties without battling through time-consuming red tape. By making this permitted development right permanent, it will mean families can grow without being forced to move.

 

“This is part of a package of reforms to build more, better, faster and make the housing market work – and sits alongside our drive to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020″

 

“This step will make it easier for families to build outwards rather than go through the arduous process of moving to a larger home”.

 

It seems to be great news for commercial properties also, as they too are seeing a reduction in red tape…
As part of the reforms shops will now be able to change to office space without the need for a full planning application – a change which the government claims will bring “skilled professionals and their disposable income back to the high street.”

 

High Streets minister Jake Berry says: “Giving greater certainty to property owners and the wider industry, it will also help businesses adjust to the changing needs of the consumer.

 

“The move builds upon changes to the law which allow business owners to change the use of buildings from takeaways to new homes without undergoing a full planning application.”

Going, going… nearly gone! Our latest Auction catalogue is out now!

 

auction hammer

 

It’s that time of the month again when our popular auction catalogue is published, jam-packed as ever with fantastic properties be it for investment, residential or commercial use.

 

Rook Matthews Sayer works in association with Agents Property Auction who manages the auction process of all our auction properties and is supported by a regional network of fifty estate agents.

 

If you’re looking to sell your property quickly then you may consider selling it at one of our monthly property auctions. If your property doesn’t sell, you have no fees to pay. Our no sale, no fee auction is held once a month.
Why sell at Auction? The main benefit of selling your home at auction is the fixed timescale. If you need to sell quickly then auction could be the answer. Other potential benefits include:

nbsp;

  • It’s fast; on acceptance of an offer, the buyer agrees to a timescale, giving you the peace of mind of a definite exchange date.
  • Control; you set a reserve price and the property can not be sold for a penny below.
  • Security; the successful buyer places a non-returnable financial deposit. If the buyer withdraws from the sale they will forfeit the deposit

 

When and where?

 

North East Property Auctions are held once a month. The next auction where these properties will be on sale is on Thursday 30th May at The Marriott Hotel, Gosforth Park. 6.30pm registration – 7pm start

Raising money for Comic Relief

 

On Friday 15th March Rook Matthews Sayer decided to support Red Nose Day 2019.

 

We all dressed down for the day and paid into the pot, we had a bake off, with lots of cakes and treats. Games such as, guess how many sweets are in the jar, mini-golf tournament and an office quiz. We also sold raffle tickets with the chance to win two beautiful large hampers including lots of delicious goodies.

 

As a company we proudly raised an amazing £276.55 this amount could pay for:

*Vital education about maternal health in Sierra Leone.
*Over 160 tests to quickly diagnose people with Malaria.
*6 Specialist trauma counselling sessions for refugees in the UK.

 

Thank you again team RMS and all of your support.

If you really really want to sell your home you need to present it to the most Home buyers.

 

 

If you’re in the market to sell your home, you need to reach the widest market possible of serious buyers…sounds obvious right?

 

To do that you need to advertise your home on both Rightmove and Zoopla.

 

Results released by Zoopla this January show that they have had a huge surge in leads and the number of visits to their site. Their site visits peaked at a new single month high of 58.3 million and monthly visits averaging 50 million a month!*

 

The figures really do speak for themselves, data from easycounter.com for the 22nd January show the number of visits for the three main property portals …

 

Rightmove received 456,000 daily visits,
Zoopla received 210,000
whilst OnTheMarket trailed with 48,700.

 

By choosing an agent who advertises on both Rightmove and Zoopla you increase your
chance of finding a serious buyer. Make sure you advertise on the big two and say Hello to your new home!

Raising money for a very brave boy

 

auction hammer

 

On the 1st June it was International Children’s Day and the team at Rook Matthews Sayer decided to pledge their support for a very special brave little boy Ryan Robson.

 

Ryan is the nephew of our lovely Receptionist Nikki, and was recently diagnosed with Leukaemia, which amongst other things will result in a three and a half year treatment of chemotherapy. Ryan has been so brave throughout his illness and treatment that we decided this Children’s Day he should be celebrated. So in true RMS spirit we rallied round with the hope of raising enough money to perhaps buy him a new toy to cheer him up during this difficult time.

 

We are absolutely over the moon to announce that our staff all worked tirelessly, donated generously and enjoyed the fairground antics fully and managed to raise a whopping £1,000 which exceeded all expectations.

 

Nikki, our Head Office Receptionist presented the cheque to Ryan who was very excited and said “Wow! That is a lot of money, I can buy lots of food with that!”

 

The money will pay for an iPad for Ryan to use in hospital and lots of lollies and treats!

 

Thank you to everyone who donated and we wish super brave Ryan the very very best with his treatment and support him and his family every step of the way.

 

You’ve got this Ryan!

Housebuilding Rates Increase to Decade-High

 

original article posted by Zoopla

 

It has been reported that the number of new homes being built has reached its highest level for 10 years. But, the total is has still fallen short of government targets.

 

There was a 6% increase in new properties registered to be built in 2017 compared to 2016. But despite this, the number of new houses being built is below the Governments target of 300,000 per year.

 

The Government aim to build one million new homes by 2020 but a number of factors are still hindering developers, including delays in getting planning permission and a shortage of suitable land.

Our Ashington branch helps two year olds take first steps on the Property Ladder

 

ashington branch

Nursery children took their very first steps on the property ladder thanks to the help of our Ashington branch.
Children who attend the two-year-old provision at the Thomas Bewick Early Years Centre in Ashington are now the proud owners of a wooden playhouse! It was donated to their outdoor play area by Rook Matthews Sayer as part of our commitment to support projects in the community.

 

We were approached by the school and asked if there was any way we could help to improve the outdoor area and facilities for these children. We raised enough money to donate a beautiful play house and then erected a special sold sign next to the house.

 

Clare Lishman, Director of Early Years at NCEA, said: “This is a fantastic edition to the two-year-old provision’s outdoor facilities and the children are already having lots of fun playing inside. Outdoor play is vital for a child’s learning and development and the playhouse is great for their imagination and creativity and can be anything from a house to a castle to a shop.”

 

“We aim to ensure that there is always lots of exciting activities going on, and that importantly we are helping to prepare them for starting nursery and school.”

 

Caroline Davison, our Ashington Branch Manager, visited the centre to hand over the keys to the children and was absolutely thrilled at their reaction. “We are delighted to be able to help. It was a great moment to hand the keys over to the children and see them enjoying their new play house.”

 

“We’re really pleased that we were able to help make a difference in our local area. We want to help improve the lives of local people through the community amenities making our local towns and villages great places to live for everyone.”

 

In the past as a group, we have raised over £25k for nominated charities. This year we are planning to support smaller charities in the local communities where our 17 branches are based. Our aim for 2016 is to help improve the lives of local people through the community amenities, making our local towns and villages great places to grow up and live for everyone.

 

If you know of any community group or area in your local town that needs some funding and which improves the lives of locals in your area, please contact marketing@rookmatthewssayer.co.uk with further information.
