Five reasons to move this autumn

October 14, 2020

There’s no denying that 2020 has been a bit of rollercoaster. And now, as we sit back and take stock, many of us might feel like it’s time for a change. Our homes have become the centre of our worlds, so it is more important than ever that they offer everything we require.

If your current home no longer suits your needs, here are five reasons to move before Christmas:

  1. Stamp Duty
    Time is running out to make the most of the Government’s temporary removal of Stamp Duty up to £500,000.

We have a range of available properties that benefit from the changes, with many of our family homes Stamp Duty free. The scheme is in place until the end of March 2021 and could save you up to £15,000 – you can read more about this here.

  1. Space for everyone to work, live and play

There’s nothing like spending a few months in close quarters with your loved ones to make you appreciate a bit of personal space! Whether your family is growing, or you need a property that is better suited to working from home, all of our homes have thoughtful and considered layouts to ensure there’s space for everyone.

Many of our homes have balconies, gardens, en suites and separate studies which all serve as a safe haven for those looking for a bit of peace and quiet whatever time of day. And with superfast broadband wired into every home from move-in day, you won’t have to worry about internet downtime either.

  1. Part Exchange 

Now is the perfect time to take advantage of our Part Exchange programme, where we effectively act as a cash buyer for your current property. Designed to make your move as straightforward as possible, we offer up to 100% Part Exchange so you don’t have to worry about waiting for a buyer or a chain falling through. You can find full details of this on our buying solutions page.

  1. Get closer to nature, ready for Spring

Access to green space has never been more important and living at our developments in Berkshire and Oxfordshire means having the great outdoors on the doorstep.

At Buckler’s Park in Crowthorne, over 100 acres of green space in the shape of Buckler’s Forest is perfect for a dog walk, run or cycle. The same goes for Finchwood Park in Finchampstead, where residents enjoy over 140 acres of public open space, and for Cross Trees Park, which is set in 13 acres of beautiful parkland next to the historic village of Shrivenham.

  1. Join a vibrant community

Our neighbours have done a brilliant job of keeping spirits high during these extraordinary times. From community Facebook groups on the developments themselves to the creativity and resilience shown by independent businesses nearby, it has been amazing to watch people come together to support one another over the last few months.

Our ethos is to build places where we, and our friends and family, would want to live and, when you choose a home at a Legal & General Homes development, you will be joining a close knit and friendly community from day one.
