Go onlineIf you’re not familiar with the area in which you’re hoping to buy, look at the planning department pages on the local council website. ‘Here you can find previous applications on your road and neighbouring streets stretching back five years or so,’ says James. ‘You can then see what was passed and what was rejected and why. This will give you a very good idea of what’s possible.’ Find out if the area is a conservation area or not, too. ‘If it’s not, permitted development rights apply, so explore your options within that criteria,’ James adds.TELL US…Do you have any tips for seeing past dodgy décor and wrecked rooms?

Insert a studyIf you desperately need a home study area, then utilising the under-stairs zone may work better for you than sacrificing a corner of the bedroom or dining room. Remember to think about functional things such as lighting, as under the stairs can be pretty gloomy; here, strategically placed spotlights ensure the owner won’t be working in the dark.
Recycle electronicsIn the market for a new laptop, computer or phone? Don’t just ditch your old one – recycle it. If there’s still life in your computer, consider contacting Computer Aid International, which cleans IT equipment and sends it to hospitals and schools in developing countries. If it’s not suitable, some companies will recycle computers, or contact your local council.Also consider investing in rechargeable batteries and a small charger for frequently used electrical items, such as radios. If you do have disposable alkaline batteries, which contain toxic heavy metals, make sure you recycle them so they don’t end up in landfill.
