Story Homes extend a ‘helping hand’

March 2017

Story Homes unveil that they will be giving homebuyers a ‘helping hand’ to buy their dream homes in Cumbria and Scotland.

The ‘helping hand’ scheme takes care of some of the extra expenses that are usually incurred when purchasing a new home.

We will pay Stamp Duty and the legal fees for purchasers using the scheme which is available on selected homes in Cumbria and Scotland.

Head of Sales, Hayley Blair said; “At Story Homes, we understand that stamp duty and legal fees can be easy to overlook in your budget calculations when buying a brand new home.

“Moving house can be an expensive time and our ‘Helping Hand’ package will help to put our customer’s minds at ease by taking care of some of the extra costs.

“We will help out by paying the stamp duty and legal fees associated with buying your Story Home.”

Among all of the excitement, it’s important to remember that buying a home is likely to be the single biggest investment you’ll make and that there are a number of costs to be aware of as you embark on your home-owning journey.

You’ll need to hire a solicitor to handle the purchase of your new home, even if you’re not selling a property to move into a Story Home. By using one of our recommended solicitors we will pay your fees. Your solicitor will be responsible for arranging the paperwork, conducting any searches and approving the final contract.

Stamp Duty is the most well-known additional cost to buying a home, thanks in part to the number of changes the duty has undergone over recent years. It’s a tax on any property purchases made in the UK.

To take advantage of the exceptional offer visit our marketing suites in Cumbria and Scotland and speak to our knowledgeable sales executives.
