If you’re planning a staycation, you don’t need to live in a beach hut or a lighthouse keeper’s cottage with beautiful views across the Irish Sea to recreate a holiday feel at home this summer. Coastal styling breathes new life into interior decor and can make staying at home a real pleasure. Create a haven within your home – it’s amazing how some interior sprucing can satisfy the urge for escapism and enhance the relaxed summer mood.

The new Tenant Fees Act came into force on 1 June 2019, banning letting fees paid by private tenants in England, and capping the security deposits they have to pay at five weeks' rent. Designed to reduce the costs that tenants incur at the start of the renting process, throughout their tenancy, and when their contract ends, the legislation places new rules on landlords and agents about what they can charge tenants. The changes will end the unscrupulous practice by some rogue landlords of overcharging renters for minor damages and protect private tenants from unexpected costs that can make properties hard to afford.

Spotlight on Chalfont St Peter – our estate agents view. From its roots as an ancient Iron Age village, and later as an Anglo Saxon settlement along the River Misbourne, Chalfont St Peter has grown to become one of the largest villages in the South East with a population of over 13,000. The village boasts a “vibrant village community with a strong local identity” and this is clearly seen at the Feast Day which takes place on Gold Hill Common each year. This year’s Feast Day takes place on Saturday June 29th and if you’ve never visited before it’s a real introduction to Chalfont St Peter’s community focus and family fun.
