Recent predictions from the UK’s leading property portal, Rightmove, indicate that an estimated 100,000 prospective homebuyers will miss out on the Chancellor’s Stamp Duty holiday due to end on 31st of March. However, for prospective house-hunters eager to take advantage of the stamp duty savings without worrying about the upcoming deadline, luxury homebuilder Millwood Designer Homes is gifting a generous financial boost. Offering a £10,000 contribution to stamp duty and fitted flooring on selected properties at Hawthornden in Yalding, Kent, purchasers can enjoy more for their money with huge savings on a charming new build property.
Philip Brown, Sales and Marketing Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments:
“The official deadline of the stamp duty holiday is approaching, but realistically for all new mortgage buyers, the cut-off point has already passed due to the time it takes to go through the process buying a home. We are pleased to be able to offer our purchasers a financial contribution towards stamp duty on a selection of our stunning new build homes at Hawthornden, which we hope will provide a much-needed boost to buyers. Purchasers will not only reap the rewards of the stamp duty saving, but will also benefit from extra space at an excellent price point, in a development that holds a tight-knit community at its core. With only four three-bedroom new builds available, those eager to make the most of our generous offer should act fast to secure savings on the family home of their dreams.”
Set in the beautiful Kent village of Yalding, in a perfectly secluded area of woodland, Hawthornden comprises a unique collection of three, four-and five-bedroom homes, with just a small selection of three-bedroom homes left. With Millwood’s unmissable stamp duty offering, buyers will not have to pay the first £10,000 of the stamp duty on their new home at Hawthornden, meaning they will only have to pay £3,000 for a property priced at £460,000, compared to £13,000.
