Home builder of­fers to cover stamp duty

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

FOR­GET bag­ging a bar­gain in the Jan­uary sales, with Elan Homes you could buy a new home in Stock­port this month and save thou­sands.

The UK home builder is of­fer­ing those who want to make a fresh start in 2016 an ex­tra boost worth more than £5,000.

Sales di­rec­tor for Elan Homes in the north, Marie Mor­ris, said: “Stamp duty is an added cost as­so­ci­ated with buy­ing a home that is of­ten over­looked.

“In some cases the tax bill can mean that peo­ple miss out on their pre­ferred prop­erty as their bud­get won’t stretch that far.

“While re­search from the Hal­i­fax sug­gests that the av­er­age home buyer is around £4,500 bet­ter off as a re­sult of changes to stamp duty in­tro­duced in 2014, those who pur­chase a prop­erty at Cherry Tree Park could be in line for fur­ther sav­ings as we’re of­fer­ing to cover the tax on se­lected homes.”

Cherry Tree Park of­fers 49 prop­er­ties in a choice of three, four and five-bed­room de­signs in the res­i­den­tial sub­urb of Great Moor.

Marie added: “As an ex­tra bonus we’ll even in­clude floor­ing too.

“But buy­ers will need to act fast as the in­cen­tive is only avail­able to those who re­serve in Jan­uary.”

Elan will pay the £5,000 stamp duty on the three-bed­room Aldgate, priced at £299,995. The com­pany will also cover the £6,250 tax bill on the four-bed­room Lan­g­ley, on the mar­ket at £324,995.

Set out over three floors, the Aldgate fea­tures an open plan kitchen and din­ing room to the ground floor, with French doors lead­ing to the rear gar­den. The spa­cious lounge, a fam­ily bath­room and a bed­room are on the first floor.

The mas­ter bed­room, com­plete with en suite, and the third bed­room are on the top floor.

The Lan­g­ley is also a three-storey town­house with a sim­i­lar ground floor lay­out.

The lounge, se­cond bed­room and a shower room are on the first floor. Up on the se­cond floor are three fur­ther bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the mas­ter with en suite, and a fam­ily bath­room.

To find out how you could stamp out stamp duty when you buy a new home in Stock­port, visit Cherry Tree Park, where the show home is open Thurs­day to Mon­day from 10am to 5pm.
