A Brand New Home In A Traditional Old Village
26 Feb 2013

Linden Homes’ new development of houses and apartments in Horndean – at The Old Brewery – offers a unique opportunity to buy a new home in an old village.

All the characteristics of traditional village life are there: It has a post office, pubs, convenience stores, churches and chapels.

At the moment Linden Homes is building thirteen houses and six apartments as part of the first phase.

It is unusual to have new homes like these at the heart of a traditional village.

New homes are built to a much higher specification than many older properties; they are six times more energy efficient and generate an estimated 60% less CO2 emissions than older style homes.

The building standards and regulations for new homes are higher than they’ve ever been and these homes won’t require major repairs or refurbishment.

When you buy a new Linden Home, you buy a property that has been well designed and finished with the very high specification common to all Linden Homes. Each new home comes with a ten year NHBC build warranty and a two year customer care warranty – as standard.

Each home has the latest technology in terms of appliances – cooker, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine and all of these are also guaranteed.

It might well be that you’re very interested in a new home at the Old Brewery, but view your existing home as a barrier to a smooth move.

So what if someone sold it for you, freeing you to move into a new home?

This is how the Linden Homes’ Part Exchange Scheme* works. Under the scheme Linden Homes will have your old property valued and make you an offer for it so you can go ahead and buy your new Linden Home.

Mark Docherty is Linden Homes’ sales and marketing director: “It is a scheme that has worked really well for many Linden Homes’ buyers. They have told us that knowing some of the stress and frustration of selling would be removed actually inspired them to go ahead with plans to buy a new home. These are some of the comments our customers have made about the Scheme.”

Stephanie and Justin Walford found the Part Exchange Scheme to be an extremely smooth process: “We’d been getting nowhere when we were trying to sell the old house ourselves. Once we found the home we wanted, the Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme took away the hassle of selling our old house. It also freed up a few thousand pounds in saved estate agent fees. But most importantly it meant we could get on with the move.”

Alison and David Huntingford also used the Part Exchange Scheme to buy their new Linden Home: “The Part Exchange Scheme gave us absolute peace of mind because we knew we weren’t part of a chain that could break. We were so desperate to move and the price Linden Homes offered us for our old home was set, which made it so much easier when it came to dealing with the banks. But the best thing was that we knew when we were going to move. We had a definite date and we knew that it was going to happen.”
