On Sunday 4th of August a team of brave souls from Dawsons took to the sky in a small aircraft and threw themselves out at 12,000ft with Skydive Swansea.

DAWSONS SKYDIVE
The reason for this brave feat was to raise money for local charity hospice Ty Olwen. After the jump, delighted and relieved, the team met up with Dawsons Senior Partner Chris Hope to present Helen from Ty Olwen with a cheque for £2,567.

The aims of the Ty Olwen Trust are:

  • To relieve patients of the Ty Olwen Palliative Care Service who are suffering from cancer and life-limiting diseases by the provision of amenities, equipment, services and facilities not normally provided by the National Health Service.
  • To extend such service and amenities to patients suffering from cancer and life-limiting diseases who require medical and nursing support in all care settings.
  • To assist the family or dependents of patients suffering from cancer and life-limiting diseases who are in necessitous circumstances in particular as a result of these illnesses.
  • To promote and support research into the causes and treatment of cancer and life-limiting diseases at Ty Olwen and to assist in the dissemination of the results thereof.
  • To award bursaries to enable nurses and other staff and helpers to undertake specialised training courses.

There were over 100 property professionals who joined together for the challenge and it turned out to be one of the biggest charity events the industry has ever seen. By day we took to our canoes, covering 31 miles of river and rapids, by night we continued to raise money with a charity auction and games to help raise more funds.

Dom is loved by many in the industry, due to his easy-going nature, his kind and thoughtful approach and fantastic sense of humour. He has has been in the property industry for many years and runs a successful estate agents and holiday lets business, called FBM in Haverfordwest.  The agency is also part of the Fine & Country network, alongside Dawsons, so we all know Dom very well and are delighted to take part in this amazing event. If you are able to spare a few pounds, please click HERE. All donations are hugely appreciated, it is hoped that Do It For Dom 2019 will bring the fundraising total over £100,000.

The Cabin, Three Cliffs

The sea and Three Cliffs views from this plot are simply breath-taking!

Dawsons at the 2019 cracker 7's

Dawsons Property continued their longstanding sponsorship of the ever-popular Cracker Sevens at Mumbles RFC this year.

As always, the 3-day festival of rugby took place over the Bank Holiday weekend, August 24-26, in Underhill Park, Mumbles.

The Dawsons loyal sponsorship spans more than two decades and partner James Dawson has been associated with the tournament for many years, having played in the event in his youth and continuing as a sponsor.

“Being a player in the Cracker Sevens and to then go on to sponsor the event year on year is a privilege,” said James. “The event is an annual must for the Dawsons partners, their families, our employees and our business associates.  It really is a thoroughly enjoyable event come rain or shine…  but we were extremely lucky this year to have a scorcher!”

Deceased Estate Sales with Dawsons Property

Deceased Estate Sales

It can prove a stressful and distressing time when you are responsible for arranging the deceased estate of a loved one.  It is important for us to provide you with a realistic market price (upon which any inheritance tax liability will be calculated) and this probate valuation will be carried out with a sympathetic and caring approach.

If selling through private treaty you must wait for probate to be granted. Once granted, we will be able to place your property onto the market for sale.  If the property is to be sold by auction we can actually sell before the grant of probate, another reason why we sell so many deceased estates sell in this way. If probate is still not granted by the 28 day completion period, there is a clause in the contract stating that completion will happen 7 days after the grant of probate.

Deceased Estate Sales with Dawsons Property

So we feel that selling by Auction is perfect for deceased estate sales for the following reasons:

  • Demand is very high for properties requiring refurbishment or renovations.  Often a deceased sale property has been lived in by an elderly relative and may not have been updated to modern standards.
  • Low priced properties often achieve much higher figures than they would on the open sales market, due to the excitement of the bidding process and the expertise of the auctioneer.
  • Auction sales exchange on the day and complete within 28 days.  On top of the stress of losing a loved one, there is no worry about sales falling through, chains collapsing or surveys being under-valued.

Dawsons are the only Swansea agent with an in-house Auction Team and we run auctions at the Swansea Marriott Hotel every 2nd month.  In 2019 we have run 4 auctions with 60 lots sold totalling £1,274,000. At our August Auction 21/21 properties sold, a number of which were deceased estate sales.

Examples of 2 Recent Deceased Estate Sales

Glantawe Street, MorristonExecutors should take legal advice on the title to the property and the taxation aspects of selling before placing the property on the market.

  • Went to Auction without viewings
  • Reserve £10,000
  • Sold £39,000

Gelli Glas, Morriston

Executors should take legal advice on the title to the property and the taxation aspects of selling before placing the property on the market.

  • Went to Auction had severe cracking throughout but was priced accordingly
  • Reserve £63,000
  • Sold £94,500

Timeline:

1. Grant of probate (2-3 months)

Required to enable executors to sell or transfer the property. The grant is a form of certificate issued by the court that confirms the validity of the will and gives the executors authority to deal with the deceased’s estate.

2. Probate valuations (2 weeks)

The executors should obtain two or three estate agents’ valuations and take the average as the value of the property, or obtain a surveyor’s valuation.

3. Title and deeds (1 hour to weeks if not registered)

The executors should also check the title to the property. If the property is registered with the Land Registry, this is a straightforward matter of downloading a copy of the title entries and plan from the Land Registry website, checking that the property is in the deceased’s name and that the plan shows the full extent of the property.

If the property is not registered, the executors will need to locate the paper title deeds, which hopefully are held safely by the deceased’s solicitor or their bank.

Preparing the Legal Documents (4 weeks*) Once the title and deeds are located, the executors should ask a solicitor to check them for any restrictions affecting the property, or defects in the title, which will need to be dealt with before the property can be sold. If the property is going to the Auction House, a legal pack will need to be prepared prior to listing the property.  One issue which often arises is when the property was not transferred to the deceased on the death of a spouse so this will add time to the process.

*Timescale depends on the solicitor, so we always  recommend people who know and understand the process

4. Marketing for Auction (Dawsons 6-8 weeks )

5. Marketing for Sale on the Open Market (National average 6-8 weeks)

Other Considerations:

Property Clearance

The deceased’s property will need to be cleared of all its contents before the property is sold and this is often a sticking point for the executors or family.

Capital Gains Tax

For the year of death and the following two years, the executors have a CGT allowance of £12,000 (for 2019-20).  Executors should take legal advice on the title to the property and the taxation aspects of selling before placing the property on the market.

Wales Air Show 2019

On the weekend of the 6th & 7th July the Dawsons Property team of volunteers headed down to Swansea Bay to work at the Wales Airshow for the 2nd year running.

Dawsons Property Blog August 2019
“Tag your Tots” was the theme, and positioned at the entrance, the staff were on hand to get all of the children wristbands with their parent’s emergency contact details secured on their arms, so that, heaven forbid, they wandered off during the excitement,  their parents or guardians could easily be contacted and traced….. especially with all eyes raised up to the sky for the aerobatic entertainment.

On top of this, there was lots of face painting, aeroplane stencils and glitter at the ready, plus selfie frames for photos and lots of advice about the events happening over the 2 days.

We took so much pride in being a part of the anniversary celebrations for Swansea City’s 50th birthday.

Industry News

Whether you’re over the moon or underwhelmed, Boris Johnson is now Prime Minister of the UK.

boris johnsonHe’s got form in the housing sector including his relatively unsuccessful attempt to introduce a minimum ‘rental standard’ in London when he was mayor, but now takes charge of a government that has several flagship housing market measures underway.

Will Bojo keep his housing team as it is? Will he alter James Brokenshire’s plans to reform Section 21 evictions, reform leasehold ownership, regulate estate agency and set up a publicly-available database of rogue landlords and agents? And will he follow through on his promise to reform Stamp duty? It will be an interesting few weeks. Effectively we here in Swansea have Rent Smart Wales (RSW) which already has in place a number of the suggested processes – in simply terms policing the PRS and looking at continued ways to improve standards across the board without the unexpected and detrimental financial consequences.

AUCTION NEWS:

Dawsons Swansea Auction Time

The auction department has grown from strength to strength over the last six months. With the average number of properties going to each auction rising from 19 to 22.

We have found that more and more vendors are preferring the auction method of sale. The transparent, no-nonsense approach is becoming all the more common amongst sellers and purchasers alike.

If you have a surplus property, a property with issues e.g. short lease, knotweed, structural issues, neighbour disputes or need to sell due to legal reasons, an auction can be a great tool. From the beginning of marketing to completion the auction process is roughly 8 weeks.

Please give us a call on 01792 478903.

BEST ESTATE AGENT GUIDE DAWSONS

Dawsons in top 3% of Estate Agents in England & Wales

DAWSONS EA MASTERS WINNERS 2018

Whole of Market

Annually over 25,000 estate agents are assessed to create a useful tool designed to help customers choose an estate agent for the sale or let of their most valuable asset.  The Best Estate Agency Guide is compiled by independent industry experts the Property Academy with the support of the UK’s largest property portal, Rightmove. They compare performance at a hyper-local level and rate estate agency branches in order to recognise differences in service standards and any disparities in regional property markets.

Rigorous

To choose which agents are listed in the Best Estate Agent Guide, each branch is scored against a unique set of performance and customer service criteria, using a combination of data analysis and mystery shopping.

Over a 6-month period, this involves analysis of:

  • Over 25,000 branches
  • 1 million properties listed at any point in time
  • 1.5 million transactions
  • 25 million leads
  • 1.5 billion property views
  • 50,000 mystery shops

Estate agent branches that display a Best Estate Agent Guide rating are among the best in the country. The marks provide a useful indication of the quality of the agent, which can help when choosing an agent to value your property and when choosing which agent to instruct.

Dawsons are in the Best Estate Agent Guide 2020
Our invitation arrived to attend the 2019 EA Masters Ceremony as one of the top 3% of Estate Agents in the UK

Sales Director Jo Summerfield-Talbot said of the announcement “Being confirmed as a winner in the Best Agent Guide 2019 is a proud moment for Dawsons, and a great achievement that follows on from our successes in 2018”.  Lettings Director Ricky Purdy added, “Knowing the criteria involved in the process this year and that measuring performance and service was set even higher than in 2018, makes the hard work and dedication of our staff an even greater reassurance and recognition of their continued service on behalf of our clients.”

Mr W. and Miss S. offered on a property with our Gorseinon branch however, after visiting their bank, they were not able to borrow the amount they needed and therefore their offer was unsuccessful.

Then after accepting advice from Dawsons Gorseinon Matthew Jones, the clients agreed to meet and speak with Dawsons financial advisors – Mortgage Advice Bureau. Upon delving deeper into their financial situation, the advisor was able to identify a lender from an extensive panel which would allow them to borrow in excess of £200,000…..some £100,000 more than their Bank would allow! Our clients then went on to purchase a home via a new build developer, at a much higher price than they ever thought possible… What could we be doing for you?

Wales Airshow 2019 with Dawsons Property

Wales Airshow 2019 with the Dawsons Property Team

On the weekend of the 6th & 7th July the Dawsons Property team of volunteers headed down to Swansea Bay to work at the Wales Airshow for the 2nd year running.

“Tag your Tots” was the theme, and positioned at the entrance, the staff were on hand to get all of the children wristbands with their parent’s emergency contact details secured on their arms, so that, heaven forbid, they wandered off during the excitement – especially with all eye raised up to the sky for the aerobatic entertainment – their parents or guardians could easily be contacted and traced.

On top of this, there was lots of face painting, aeroplane stencils and glitter at the ready, plus selfie frames for photos and lots of advice about the events happening over the 2 days.

As the sun beamed down on Swansea’s beautiful sandy beach, this weekend absolutely covered with spectators, the aviation fans young and old were wowed with the spectacular sights in front of their eyes along the coast.  The Red Arrows performed on both days, with live commentary from Red 10 and from Red 1 in the cockpit as they performed death-defying acrobatics at 700 mph.

On Saturday evening there was an extra treat as long into the evening with the airshow’s first ever ‘After Dark’ event with highlights coming from The Fireflies Aerobatic Display Team, hot air balloons and an impressive fireworks display.

On Sunday there was a spectacular acrobatic display from the Wing Walkers which saw many a spectator with an open-mouthed ‘wow’ going on!

Dawsons Marketing Team sponsors various local events throughout the year and raises money for charity.
