There are not many flats within Wye and this is one of the best. Located right in the centre of the village and being ground floor. It would suite anyone with mobility problems. However with its charming garden and generous rooms it would also make a great holiday let or investment.
Having been in many properties in Wye and the surrounding villages, this has to be one of my favourite flats. The property always feels so welcoming and has such a pretty garden. The fact that the flat has parking and a share of the freehold make this a great purchase.
Foxwood Maclean were delighted to be able to sponsor the East Kent Ride again this year. The team handed our complimentary water to the riders half way round the ride and served soup and rolls on their return. As always the ride was well attended and enjoyed by all who attended..
The Directors of Foxwood Maclean are delighted to announce a refurbishment of our offices in Wye. The office is open during this work and the team are looking forward to welcoming all our current and future clients to the new offices when they open in early May.
The lettings landscape is an ever changing picture and as a landlord you must keep up with these unless you use a lettings agent, who should be keeping up with these changes for you.
Foxwood Maclean have always insisted that all our staff have the relevant qualification in either Estate Agency or Residential Lettings and as part of that they all have to do continuous personal development. This involves keeping up with all the changes and adapting our procedures accordingly.
There will be a new template Section 21 form which will need to be used when giving notice on all tenancies which start on or after 1 October 2015 and which can be used to bring existing tenancies to an end after that date. Required information Landlords will not be able to serve a Section 21 Notice on tenancies that begin on or after 1st October 2015 unless they have provided tenants with the following information:
• A Gas Safety Certificate covering all fixed as well as portable gas appliances provided by the landlord for the tenants’ use.
• The property’s Energy Performance Certificates (EPC); except where a property is not required to have an EPC
• The Department for Communities and Local Government’s How to rent: This should be given at the start of a new tenancy.
• The Prescribed Information relating to the protection of a tenants’ deposit.
Notwithstanding certain simplifications made to the new section 21 notice procedure, the overall effect of the Deregulation Act 2015 is to impose additional hurdles for landlords seeking to serve valid section 21 notices. Landlords should take careful note of the new requirements in order to avoid delays in recovering possession of their property.
