How To Make An Igloo

You may have noticed that we have had the odd snowflake drop in on us yesterday. For one Parwich family, this provided the perfect opportunity to launch an ambitious construction project.

Once planning permission had been obtained – we are in the Peak Park after all – the intrepid construction team descended on the garden, intent on creating the perfect winter residence.

Warm up to energy bill savings – before it’s too late

Time is running out for Derbyshire Dales residents to take advantage of lofty savings on their energy bills.

In the past year Derbyshire Dales District Council has helped local people save over £43,000 in energy bills and is urging local householders and private tenants to sign up to a scheme for free and discounted loft insulation and cavity wall insulation.

Last autumn 326 Dales households prepared for winter and beat rising energy prices by applying for subsidised loft and cavity wall insulation, resulting in an annual CO2 saving of 220 Tonnes.

Chairman of Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Environment Committee, Councillor Steve Bull, said: “The recent weather, which has felt more like October than July, should prompt local people to prepare for winter now to save cash when you really need the energy.

“Funding for the free and discounted scheme the District Council runs in partnership with Warmstreets ends in December 2012, so our advice is call us now.”

Call 0800 043 9569, or if calling from a mobile 0333 557 9569. Alternatively, visit warmstreets for more details. Warmstreets provides deals in renewable technologies, external wall insulation, replacement heating systems and other home improvements.

Trees and Insurance

In our current unseasonal dry season, and with increasing concern about insurance issues, it has been pointed out to us that we may not think about trees in relation to our buildings insurance.  Trees are a potential factor in subsidence but also failure to disclose ‘relevant’ information even if not relevant to a specific claim can invalidate your policy.

Thank you to Terry P for the following information, about the potential impact of trees on insurance:

Just recently I have been renewing insurance policies for buildings in my ownership, and these days I have a little more time to study the ins and outs of all the excess paperwork the insurance companies send with your renewal notice. One thing to look out for, is when you accept their terms, conditions and quote you will also be accepting their PROPERTY OWNERS’ STATEMENT OF FACT which has more than one or two exclusions in there. One thing I picked up on, is the distance of mature trees from a building that are likely to cause Heave or Subsidence, (more…)

Accommodation wanted

We have received the following request:

I have recently returned to the UK after spending 25 years in Europe and am looking for lodgings in the Parwich area, after falling in love with the place.

I am employed by a charitable organisation and am based in Derby: as I cannot afford to rent a property on my own I wondered if you know of anybody who would house share or take in a lodger. I am a pretty versatile person and would slot into any household, share tasks and help – on the proviso that I can have a room with ensuite facilities.

I am 49 years of age, I don’t smoke and my one and only daughter is studying at university in Spain ( although I would like her to be able to stay with me during her uni breaks).

You can contact me by email suedaviesmv@hotmail.com.

Earlier today, 2.15pm to be precise, Parwich featured on the BBC1 programme ‘Escape to the Country’ when it came to look at Fernlea House for sale, and there were shots of the village, too.

If you want to see the programme, it should be on BBC iPlayer for the next few days.

This project was undertaken by the Marshalls, which they started at the beginning of May, taking only 19 weeks to complete. Tony and Shaun did all the work themselves apart from the electrics and plumbing. They thought it might be interesting to show the work involved in a new build property from start to finish.

Keith P writes:

Half the houses for sale in Parwich are currently registered with the online estate agent Housesimple. One has already sold, subject to contract.

Nowadays, 80 to 90 per cent of houses are viewed by buyers online through portals such as Rightmove, Primelocation, Fish4homes, Zoopla and others, and this is changing the face of estate agency. Local estate agents are no longer the first port of call for a buyer; the internet is.

But if you want to put your house on the best internet sites, you can’t do so without going through an agent, which Housesimple will do for you. Local estate agents also put the houses on their books on Rightmove and Primelocation. The difference is in the price.

A house selling for £300,000 might have a local agent’s fee of £4,000. A house at £700,000 may attract a fee of £8,500 or more. On Housesimple, the fee is £425 + VAT in total, which is why half the properties in the village have now opted for the internet estate agent.

Who knows, you might even sell your house to someone else in the village. What’s the point in paying agents many thousands of pounds to do that, when you can get just about the same exposure for very little?
