Housebuilder Barratt Homes is helping aspiring homebuyers to move house this January by hosting a series of events across a range of new housing developments in Northamptonshire.

Expert advice and information will be given to homebuyers who want to know more about buying a new home in the area.

Sales advisers will be on hand to answer any questions, including queries about the Government-backed FirstBuy scheme and the Part Exchange service which the developer offers.

The ‘Great Barratt Move’ events will be held across a range of developments in the county, on January 19 and 20 and on February 23 and 24 between 11am and 5pm.

Barratt is also offering homebuyers who buy a new home at one of the events, a £3,000 ‘starting out’ voucher to use to buy furnishings and fixtures for their new house.

Andrew Swindell, managing director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “As a leading homebuilder, our customers are our priority.

“We have organised the ‘Great Barratt Move’ events, as we know that the homebuying process can often seem daunting and stressful – but that doesn’t always have to be the case.

“Barratt offers a range of services that help to make buying a new home simple.

“Many of our properties qualify for the FirstBuy scheme, allowing homebuyers to buy one of our houses with a deposit as low as four per cent.

“Our part exchange service also makes moving home as stress-free as possible.

“We buy a customer’s current home for 100 per cent market value, so customers can move into one of our new homes with ease, often within just four weeks.”

Buyers can also have added peace of mind with Barratt’s extended five-year warranty on fixtures and fittings.

The items which Barratt will cover at no extra cost to the buyer will include appliances such as washing machines and refrigerators, kitchen units, wardrobes, the central heating system, fires, doors, windows, drainage, the hot and cold plumbing system and even the driveway.

The five-year warranty of fixtures and fittings in place at the time of purchase is in addition to the existing 10-year warranty on the structure of new homes and remains valid even if the home is sold on to a new owner.

Barratt Northampton currently builds a range of modern homes throughout Northamptonshire.

The first time buyer event is taking place on January 19 and 20 from 11am to 5pm at Ladywell Park development, Eastfield Road, Wellingborough.
