Retirement living specialist Rangeford has launched a new home-buying service to help speed up buyers’ moves to their two retirement communities.

The service, which includes a pledge to complete your move in 45 days, offers a solution to retirees wanting to move to Mickle Hill in Pickering, North Yorkshire, and Wadswick Green near Bath in Wiltshire quicker than they thought possible.

The sale of the buyer’s current home is handled by house-buying partners National Property Trade, freeing you from the stress of dealing with estate agents and other sellers in your chain and letting you focus on your move.

The process starts with a discussion of each resident’s personal situation on a confidential one-to-one basis.

The Stamp Duty Holiday is having an impact already and we’ve received quite a few enquiries following the announcement

You can choose a convenient moving date, and your current home is then professionally valued and surveyed by National Property Trade and two independent local estate agents.

A thorough RICS survey is undertaken and then a guaranteed cash offer made.

The offer is non-obligatory, and if accepted National Property Trade will then buy your home in cash, with payment guaranteed to be completed in as little as 14 days.

This process involves no Estate Fees.

Your home will then be put on the market by National Property, allowing you to move on and settle into your new home.

The service is offered with a 45-day pledge. This complements the recent government announcement that all home buyers in the UK will be exempt from paying Stamp Duty on a property priced up to £500,000 subject to legal completion by 31st March 2021.

Yvette Jones, Sales Manager at Mickle Hill, said: “The Stamp Duty Holiday is having an impact already and we’ve received quite a few enquiries following the announcement which is very positive.

“We’d found that the sluggish property market had caused many retirees to be worried that they would not be able to sell their home when downsizing to a retirement property.

“Stamp duty also represents a big outlay for people in that age group and it can sometimes be another deterrent to moving, so I think it will certainly make a difference.”

Mickle Hill features a mixture of 168 one-and-two-bedroom apartments for over 60s as well as spaciously designed two bedroom bungalows.

There is also a wide range of onsite amenities and social activities.

Wadswick Green is a contemporary later living village set over 25 acres in the rolling Wiltshire countryside.

Communal facilities include a swimming pool with Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, gym, spa and hair salon.

The village is also home to The Greenhouse Coffee Shop and Restaurant, which is well known in the local area.

For those who need it, domiciliary care agency Rangeford Care offers 24/7, offers in-house care and support through tailored packages.
