New Help to Buy Scheme Announced

Home owners can now move with as little as a 5% deposit    

From 7th October it will be easier for existing home owners and first-time buyers to move to a resale or new build property with as little as a 5% deposit as part of the new ‘Mortgage Guarantee’ Help to Buy scheme.

This will not just be for first-time buyers, but available to anyone looking to upsize, downsize or just move house. The Mortgage Guarantee scheme will be available on all resale and new build property under £600k, but it must be the buyers' only property. It will mean greater availability of traditional repayment mortgages up to 95% loan to value (unlike the ‘Equity Loan’ Help to Buy scheme which is a 20% equity loan and is just for new builds only).

Mortgage Guarantee ‘need to knows’:    

Not just for first-time buyers, but all sellers looking to move and buy again

Available on all resale properties and new builds up to £600k

95% loan to value repayment mortgage, not an equity loan

Can move with as little as a 5% deposit

No extra paperwork or mortgage guarantee fees

DREAMVIEW ESTATES CELEBRATE 1ST YEAR SINCE OPENING

We have gone from strength to strength and I could not have done this without my team of Robert Leigh, Josh Sagal, Victor Habib, and Galina Vasilieva. Thank you guys.

My lovely wife Barbara Lee has also been unstinting in her support and confidence. I could not have done this with her being behind me.

The results of all our hard work has culminated in one of the busiest weeks we have had so far. We have 4 new tenants moving in this weekend, 4 offers in hand today and we have listed 3 great new instructions. On the sales side we had 2 completions and 3 sales are in the process of exchanging contracts with 3 more new offers agreed. At the same we have add to our sales register with 3 terrific new instructions.

From being the "new" boys on the block we have progressed to being one of the busiest, well known and established (well nearly well established) Estate Agencies in Golders Green.

Please take some time to check out our reviews on http://www.allagents.co.uk/dreamview-estates/. They are "glowing" to say the least.

INNOVATIVE NEW WEB SITE LAUNCHES

A NEW INNOVATIVE PROPERTY PORTAL LAUCHES TODAY.

Dreamview Estates are proud to be one of the founder agents of a new web site launching today www.whosoldwhere.co.uk.

www.whosoldwhere.co.uk/welcome

We wanted toi be "in on the ground floor" of this new portal as we felt it was an excellent tool for marketing our company and proving how good we were at selling in the immediate and local area which is our forte'. 

A client can simply tap in their own postcode, give a radius and they will see who the most active agent is in the immediate vicinity. Far better than any canvassing letters! With that knowledge they can then approach the best performing company with the intimate local knowledge who should get them a quick sale 

This website is very user friendly and we are sure it will help us gain many more instructions. It also gives a new and different marketing portal where to advertise

We are sure whosoldwhere.co.uk will go on to be a told property portal in a very short time. 

We wish them the very best of luck.

Dreamview Estates Become An Approved Trader with Consumer Code Scheme

PRESS RELEASE – IMMEDIATE ISSUE

Issue date: August 2013

 

Dreamview Estates becomes an approved trader with the Consumer Code Approval Scheme

Members of The Property Ombudsman scheme celebrate their Sales Code approval with the Trading Standards Institute

 

As a member of the UK’s largest property ombudsman scheme, Dreamview Estates is one of 11,745 residential sales agents that have signed up to TPO’s Sales Code of Practice.

The Property Ombudsman (TPO) has now become the first property organisation to have a Code of Practice approved by The Trading Standard Institute (TSI) under their Consumer Code Approval Scheme.

More than 95 percent of the residential sales market is signed up to TPO’s Sales Code of Practice and redress service, which is a free, independent and impartial dispute resolution service for consumers.

This news means all home owners and buyers using any of Dreamview Estates’ are covered by TPO’s Sales Code of Practice.

Dreamview Estates is now listed on TSI’s online directory of approved traders. Consumers will be able to look for TPO sales agents through TSI’s dedicated database on www.tradingstandards.gov.uk and through the Citizens Advice Bureau’s website, to find a member of an approved code in their area.

TPO sales agents will now be able to display the TSI Approved Code logo in their advertising, branches and within company literature[i].

Confirming the news, Property Ombudsman Christopher Hamer said:

“I am delighted that TPO has become the largest organisation to win approval from TSI for its Consumer Code Approval Scheme. The TPO Code is a recognised set of standards throughout the industry but it is important that it is also seen as being independently approved by a credible organisation.

“With the OFT’s withdrawal from the code approval process it is good news that TSI have stepped in to fulfil the important role of rigorous examination and approval for consumer-focussed codes.”

Mr Hamer added: “This news means that agents who are members of TPO actively offer the highest level of consumer protection for buyers and sellers. We are in active discussions with TSI to achieve scheme approval for the Lettings Code of Practice.”

Citizens Advice Chief Executive Gillian Guy said: “We deal with over a million consumer problems each year and know how difficult it is for people to find a seller they can trust, the Approved Trader Scheme will help to combat this.”

TPO is among the first trade bodies sponsoring the new code and has also become the largest organisation to be accredited by the scheme since it replaced the Office of Fair Trading’s scheme earlier this year. There are now with 26,530 approved traders signed up to one of the ten codes of practice.

TPO joins: British Association of Removers, British Healthcare Trades Association, Debt Managers Standards Association, Institute of Professional Will Writers, Motor Codes Ltd, Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd, Robert Bosch Ltd, The Carpet Foundation and Vehicle Builders Repairers Association Ltd.

Notes to the editor:

 

Trading Standards Institute (TSI)

TSI is a training and membership organisation that has represented the interests of the Trading Standards profession since 1881 nationally and internationally. It aims to raise the profile of the profession while working towards fairer, better informed and safer consumer and business communities.

 

TSI’s members are engaged in delivering frontline trading standards services in local authorities and in businesses.

 

The Trading Standards Institute also hosts the UK European Consumer Centre (UK ECC) which provides consumer advice with regards to cross border disputes within the EU and also the European Consumer Centre Service (ECCS).

 

What is The Property Ombudsman (TPO)?

The Property Ombudsman scheme has been offering a free, independent and impartial dispute resolution service to consumers who are dissatisfied with the service provided by registered firms since 1990. The Ombudsman can provide redress to place the consumer back in the position they occupied before the complaint arose to achieve a full and final settlement of the dispute and all claims made by either party. Where appropriate, the Ombudsman can make compensatory awards in individual cases up to a maximum of £25,000 for actual and quantifiable loss and / or for aggravation, distress and inconvenience caused by the actions of a registered firm.

 

The Property Ombudsman currently provides redress for consumers using 25,500 offices in the UK (inc. 11,745 residential sales estate agency branches and 10,391 residential lettings offices).

 

Independence

Whilst TPO charges registered firms an annual subscription, the Ombudsman is accountable to the TPO Council, the majority of which is made up of non-industry members. The Council appoints the Ombudsman and sets his Terms of Reference (i.e. how the complaint process operates). The Ombudsman is required to report to the Council on a regular basis.

 

The Ombudsman is not a regulator and does not have the authority to take regulatory or legal action against a registered firm. However, member firms can be referred to the TPO Disciplinary and Standards Committee, appointed by the Council, which has the power to expel firms from the scheme and / or report them to the Office of Fair Trading, which has the ability to ban firms from carrying out estate agency business.

 

Further information

The Ombudsman’s Terms of Reference, the Codes of Practice, Consumer Guides and other documents about the operation of the scheme are available on our website (www.tpos.co.uk), together with previous annual and interim reports, further explanation of governance arrangements and a full list of registered firms.
