Buyers

We'd like you to remember your move for the right reasons.

Polite, straightforward service is at the core of this business and you can expect friendly and helpful advice from the outset.  We will aim to make your search for your next home a better experience.

It's not by chance that the majority of our clients have previously used our services and our aim is to help all of our buyers again when they choose to move on.

We will take time to understand your requirements to ensure you are notified of properties that may interest you.  All of us live locally, or have done so and there should always be someone available to describe a property's location, how to get there or just local intel.

This website includes guides to each area we cover with details of transport links, local services and schools.  On each property page a schools tab with take you to an interactive map showing local schools as well as rail stations.

We won't pressure you to use any in-house mortgage broker or conveyancer but instead we are happy to recommend professional mortgage advisers or solicitors on the merit of their service rather those that just offer us commission.

The current standard rates of SDLT (Stamp Duty) are as follows;

  • Nothing to be paid on the first £125,000
  • 2% on the sum between £125,000 and £250,000
  • 5% on the sum between £250,000 and £925,000
  • 10% on the sum between £925,000 and £1,500,000
  • 12% on the sum in excess of £1,500,000
The Government imposes an additional 3% Stamp Duty payable on the entire purchase price, in addition to the standard stamp duty rates, if you will own 2 or more properties upon completion. If you sell your current residence after you purchase your new replacement main residence, you will still have to pay the additional 3% stamp duty on completion of this purchase, but you are able to get a refund from the HMRC If you sell your current property within 3 years of this purchase.

From 22 November 2017 first time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty.
First time buyers paying between £300,000 and £500,000 will pay Stamp Duty at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000, a reduction of £5,000 compared to the amount of Stamp Duty they would have previously paid.  A first time buyer is defined as an individual or individuals who have never owned an interest in a residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence.
