Terms & Conditions

Assisted Move is available on selected new Linden homes only. Acceptance is at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to refuse to agree to Assisted Move and we are under no obligation to give reasons why. We will instruct local estate agents to undertake an independent valuation and marketing advice for your current home before we make you a proposal on a marketing price for your home. The realistic sale price may be lower than an initial marketing price and is based on a sale within a specified timescale fixed by us. You have the final say at the price at which the property is marketed, but Assisted Move will not be available if the price at which you wish to market your current home is higher than we think is realistic or the timescale is too long. You must complete an Assisted Move Agreement – a sample of our Assisted Move Agreement can be obtained from your local Linden Homes sales office. You must agree:

You may need to leave a full set of keys and agree to access accompanied viewings for potential buyers with the appointed estate agents. You agree that Linden Homes will determine which estate agent is instructed and the terms of that appointment. It is not guaranteed that a buyer will be found for your current home or that any buyer will be willing to pay the price you want. Linden Homes may continue to market your chosen Linden home and reserves the right to take a reservation on this home until the sale of your current home to a third party is agreed and you pay the reservation fee on your chosen Linden home in accordance with the Assisted Move Agreement. In this case, if available, an alternative home may be offered, but there is no obligation on either party to proceed with the Assisted Move Agreement. Any sale of your current home to a third-party buyer is at a price approved by you. A reservation fee is payable to Linden Homes for the purchase of your chosen Linden home at the agreed price, when you agree a sale on your current home. You agree only to confirm agreement of sale with a purchaser who can achieve an exchange within 28 days and who has been financially qualified to proceed with the purchase of your current home. On the simultaneous legal completion of the sale of your current home and the purchase of your new Linden home, we will pay the estate agents fees. Please note your buyer could cancel prior to legal exchange of contracts for the sale of your current home. In this instance, Linden Homes retains the right to cancel the purchase of your chosen home and retain the agreed proportion of the reservation fee in accordance with your reservation agreement. We reserve the right to end the Assisted Move Agreement if an acceptable buyer is not found within the specified period. Should we secure a purchaser for your current home on your behalf and you do not proceed to purchase a Linden home, you may be liable to pay all Estate Agent fees. Reservation fees may vary dependent upon the location of your new Linden home.
