I was greatly amused by a recent posting on the BBC News website.

A newly built house in Langley Mill, Derbyshire, has been constructed immediately behind a bus stop and shelter. And I do mean ‘immediately behind’ to the extent that you cannot access the front door without climbing over the fence!

Enjoy this video clip of the property:

Local residents have labelled it ‘bizarre’ and ‘a laughing stock’.

The Estate Agent tasked with selling the two-bedroomed terraced house with an asking price of £140,000 is Burchell Edwards. Taking a typically optimistic line, a spokesperson said it was ‘attracting a lot of interest’ and emphasised that it has ‘a beautiful interior so it would make a great starter or rental property.’

Goodness knows what is outside the back door but at least the occupiers should never miss their bus again…

Covid -19 Lockdown Update

We hope you are all staying well and safe in these very confusing times.

We are very pleased to say that with the impending second lockdown restrictions we are able to stay open and can fully function.  It just goes to show how important to the Government and the economy the residential property market is.

It is not yet confirmed as to whether our branches will be open to the public, but we can be contacted by telephone or email. 

In Summary this means

  • Buyers, sellers and tenants will continue to be able to move.
  • Removal firms, although busy are able to operate.
  • We can arrange valuations and do viewings on properties (subject to strict PPE being in place)
  • Surveyors and valuers for mortgage purposes will continue to work.

In the meantime, we will continue to follow the covid-19 safety guidelines:

  • Face coverings to be worn on all viewings.
  • Hand sanistiser to be used before entering a property.
  • Avoid touching any surfaces.
  • Viewing time is limited to 15 minutes inside the property.
  • No more than two households inside the property at any one time. This includes the agent accompanying.
  • No children permitted at viewings unless they are young enough to be carried. (Children are likely to touch surfaces).

This is good news for the property market and we will keep you updated as soon as there are any further developments.
