“Are you considering re-dec- orating or spring-cleaning your house? Do you end up using dustsheets and damaging your furniture? Or are you prohibited from doing the jobs you’d like to because your furniture is in the way? “Then why not let us

help? We offer a full re- moval, storage and return of your furniture at a time that suits you. We can come to your property, remove all the items of furniture you require, place them into our storage facility and then re- turn them to your property once the decorating is com- plete, said a spokesman. “De-Cluttering your house is the most popular and in- expensive way of attracting new buyers to your property

and encouraging a positive response in the housing market. Most potential buy- ers like to envisage them- selves in the house, whereas if they can only see your furniture and personal items it can be quite difficult. “It is a well-known fact that moving house is one of the most stressful events that most of us undertake during our lifetime. The level of stress can be easily great- ly reduced if a professional,

well-established removal

contractor is contacted at the outset, to undertake your removal.

Stamp Duty holiday comes to an end

“Move now to save thou- sands of pounds” is the mes- sage from Barratt Homes to anyone looking to get onto the property ladder for the first time this year in the Wel- lington News area. With under two months to go until first-time buyers have to pay up to an additional £2,500 in stamp duty when buying a property, they’re encouraging purchasers to benefit from the saving be- fore the end of March. The stamp duty ‘holiday’ was introduced two years ago and it was confirmed by the chancellor in his Autumn Statement that it won’t be extended. Anyone looking to benefit must legally complete on a property under the value

of £250,000 by 24th March. After this date, stamp duty will be charged at 1% to first- time buyers on all properties above the value of £125,000. “The countdown is on for

first-time buyers to save thou- sands of pounds,” says Ste- phen Cleveley, senior sales manager, Barratt Homes West Midlands. “Saving for a deposit is more demanding than ever been, so reintro- duction of stamp duty will disadvantage first-time buy- ers. Those considering get- ting onto the property ladder this year must move quickly in order to benefit from the stamp duty holiday.” With a range of proper-

ties available from Barratt Homes West Midlands, first-

time buyers have time to buy without stamp duty. As the property is brand new and purchased directly from the builder, there will be no complications to delay the purchase.

Stephen continues: “We have a superb range of prop- erties across Telford where first-time buyers can still ben- efit from the stamp duty holi- day if they act quickly.” Barratt Homes currently

has first time buyer proper- ties available at its following development in Telford: Call the sales centres: Monarch Fields 01952 606852, Clo- ver Mead, 01952 630176, or 0844 811 9933 seven days a week 8am to 9pm or visit
