Spotlight: Advice for freehold homeowners on private estates

Private estates are increasingly more common throughout the country, largely because local authorities lack the resources to adopt and maintain new amenities. Our free Gateway customer guide explains more.

On some private estates, you’ll find freehold houses or a mix of freehold houses and leasehold flats. Here, each homeowner contributes to the upkeep of the communal areas, so everyone on the estate can continue to enjoy them. For freehold homeowners, this will be through an estate rentcharge.

Our latest factsheet covers:

– where to look in your deed of transfer for rentcharge details
– what is meant by communal areas (or parts)
– the role of a managing agent, such as ourselves
– some typical freeholder restrictions
– health and safety, accounting and insurance matters.

If we’re managing your private estate and you have any questions, just get in touch.

The Great Gateway Bake off (GGBO): Whipping up heaps of support for Macmillan

Whisked. Folded. Drizzled. Sprinkled. Glazed and dusted. Our Head Office once again got baking and fundraising for an exceedingly good cause.

As you can see, our Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 27 September was a feast for the eyes too. The event couldn’t have been more tempting with dozens (baker’s dozens) of fine fancies. A big thank you to our organisers, star bakers and cake connoisseurs for the little get-together, which followed on from the success of last year’s efforts.

Over coffee, tea, cake, donuts and biscuits, the team could meet up, catch up, take five (treats, that is) and together raise £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Mmmagnificent, indeed.

Walkway bridge in Newport, South Wales

Property hotspots: Britain’s fastest-moving markets

Rightmove has identified the top ten fastest-moving property markets, with Newport in South Wales topping the list.

The property website reports almost a third of a reduction in the average length of time it takes to find a buyer in Newport since last year, from 76 to 52 days. According to Rightmove, two key factors are contributing to the popularity of the city’s housing market: the government’s announcement to scrap tolls on the Severn Crossings by the end of 2018 and increasing property interest from more expensive neighbouring areas, including Bristol. Just over the bridge in England, houses prices can be almost double those in Newport.

The city has seen a 7% increase in the average house price, up to just over £175,000.
