Stamp Duty Holiday has been extended to 30th June 2021, meaning retirees keen to downsize have more 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 quicker, and will enable them to benefit from the stamp duty relief before it ends on 30th June 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 April 2021, 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 home selling 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.
Pre-arranged viewings are permitted at Wadswick Green with a range of showhomes and completed apartments to be seen. With the governments' announcement of the roadmap out of covid, the success of the vaccination programme and the start of the Spring weather, we are seeing a huge uptake in viewings from those who have been patiently waiting to be able to venture out and complete their search for a new forever home.
And there are also virtual tours are available for those who are unable to travel to help prospective residents experience the village safely from the comfort of their own home. 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.
Rangeford Villages has taken sole management of later living village Mickle Hill in Pickering, North Yorkshire, which it developed in partnership with national older person’s charity Methodist Homes (MHA).

The recent announcement by Boris has been described as ‘risky’, ‘controversial’ and ‘manifesto-shredding’, but it is absolutely essential if we are to rebuild our NHS and boost social care funding post-Covid.

Neighbourhood favourite, The Greenhouse Restaurant in Corsham, has re-opened again following a break over the various lockdowns. It is set to become more popular than ever with a new chef, Adrian Warren, in charge and a brand-new menu.
