Builders Offering To Pay Stamp Duty+Legal Fees 2007 Style

Recommended Posts

Registered with a few developers a couple of years ago around Reading and starting to get a few of these come through now. I guess it's not that easy to shift those 650K semis after all?


Apologies didn't realise image wasn't allowed -

Text message offered to pay stamp duty, legal fees and free carpets on a 650k house in Reading... beginning of the end?

Overhears a 'single guy' in his mid 30's talking at a party Saturday evening. Has traded in his 2 bed flay for a 4 bed detached help to buy and p/x from builder.

I guess he can afford the repayments at 0.5% base rates.

I see ads all over town for new build developments. All the usual shite like "exclusive, luxury, style" all the lingo.

If houses are going up and selling like hotcakes why are developers spunking thousands on billboards and full page ads in the local paper? Of course they are also offering all sorts too....

I love it when they photograph the house at sunset and frame the shot to miss the big industrial estate behind the house or the housing benefit scheme on the corner :)

haha its over bitches!

I've had an email from Barratt today offering to pay stamp duty on their Fulham development.

'One bedroom apartments starting from £699,950'.

I'll pass thanks
