New Services Help Over 60s Move Before Stamp Duty Holiday Ends

Stamp duty relief is set to end on 31st March 2021, meaning retirees keen to downsize still have time to benefit from it.

To guarantee a quick and stress-free move, later living specialist Rangeford Villages at Wadswick Green in Corsham, Wiltshire, is offering a number of services to help them move before the deadline. And, contrary to a common perception, over 60s don’t necessarily have to sell their current home before being able to reserve their chosen apartment.

Thanks to Rangeford Villages’ new 45-day move in service, a move can be organised in under 45 days from accepting an offer for their current home. The service allows retirees to take occupancy of their new home more quickly, freeing them up from having to sell their current home themselves and guaranteeing them a sale through house buying partners Spring Move.

Retirees are offered a no obligation cash offer for their home, with payment guaranteed to be completed in as little as 14 days or at a time convenient to the seller. The home is then released for sale to the market, with every step of the sale handled by Spring Move directly.

The service allows retirees to complete their purchase more quickly, and will enable them to benefit from the stamp duty relief before it ends on 31st March 2021. To help further, Rangeford Villages has also pledged to pay the stamp duty on all properties over £500,000, the current government threshold. And if they reserve by the end of February, retirees are also offered two year’s annual fee paid, representing a saving of over £12,000.

Alternatively, retirees who would rather sell their home themselves can utilise Wadswick Green’s Move With Us offer, a support service to help them complete their sale quickly and which can guide them on how to utilise the property boost driven by the stamp duty holiday.

Rangeford Villages’ trusted partner Move with Us can manage every aspect of selling a home, including identifying local estate agents, liaising with solicitors, and building a marketing plan. The service includes thorough local market appraisals and a comprehensive valuation of the home to assist securing a quick sale at the best price. Both services mean no estate agent fees are paid by the seller.

Wadswick Green recently launched a new virtual tour viewing appointment to help prospective residents experience the village safely from the comfort of their own home and without having to physically travel to Wiltshire. This speeds up the viewing process by removing the limitations of Covid-19 restrictions, and helps drive the moving process along making it easier for it to be completed in time for March. 

Virtual Tours are held by appointment with a dedicated member of the sales team. Customers are taken through each room of a property style so they can experience the interior of the home and see for themselves the real views that they could enjoy. 

Featuring a mixture of one, two and three bedroom apartments for over 60s, Wadswick Green offers residents a wide range of onsite amenities and social activities that help to boost their social life.

Following the Covid-19 crisis, a detailed set of working practices and protocols has been put in place throughout the village to ensure staff, residents and visitors keep safe and that services operate safely and in line with the latest guidance from Government and Public Health Authorities regarding Covid-19.
