At 8pm yesterday evening further lockdown measures were introduced to tackle the rising number of Coronavirus cases putting a strain on our NHS. Like many, we were glued to the TV to see what the new lockdown would look like and how this would effect our lives and livelihoods moving forward. For estate agents and our clients, the advice from the government hasn’t changed: • You can still move home. People outside your household or support bubble should not help with moving house unless absolutely necessary. • Estate and letting agents and removals firms can continue to work. If you are looking to move, you can go to property viewings. • Follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing, letting fresh air in, and wearing a face covering. We are thrilled for our clients looking to move before the stamp duty holiday comes to an end in March and also for our team, who can continue to work with the same care, dedication and professionalism we saw throughout 2020. As a local independent business, we appreciate the privileged position afforded to us in this latest lockdown and pledge to do all we can to minimise the risks to our clients, our amazing team and the community as we continue to operate...

Covid-19

21st March 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic and Property Ladder's working practice... Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, from Monday 23rd March 2020, we have taken the decision to work from home to ensure the best social distancing practice for our brilliant team and our lovely customers. Whilst our premises are shut, we are still working remotely so please call 01603 666006 (Norwich) or 01603 898100 (Spixworth) if you need us. We are able to conduct limited physical viewings, some virtual viewings, Facetime valuations (Or Whatsapp video, Facebook messenger, zoom, skype etc.) and telephone mortgage appointments so do please stay in touch. Whilst we want to do our bit to shut this nasty virus down ASAP, we know (From the many enquiries we're still getting) that there are people out there with property needs we want to help fulfil. Together we can beat this so stay strong Norfolk!
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) were introduced in 2007 to give buyers a better understanding of the energy efficiency of a property they may wish to buy. The EPC is a legal requirement if you are selling or renting a property and are valid for 10 years from date of issue.
If you want to add value to your home, and make it a better place to live upgrading your bathroom can bring surprising benefits. One of the most important rooms in a house, it's a place where you can relax and unwind after a hard day. As well as get ready before going out or calling it a night.
House prices increased by an average 33.7% in the last decade and despite being relatively flat over the last couple of years, due to the uncertainties surrounding Brexit, are set to rise by a further 15.3%, according to latest predictions, in the next 5 years. However, there are likely to be significant regional differences with properties in the North of England expected to see the strongest price growth of 24% between 2020 and 2024. Central London properties are also set for a rebound with predictions of 20% growth and only 5% growth in Greater London.
You are looking to refit your bathroom and dropping the rarely used bath for a spacious modern shower but are considering selling in the next few years... Will this hurt your property value or chances of selling?
