Buying
  • paragraph

     

    If you are looking for a property to purchase get in contact with us and let us know your requirements so that you do not miss out on properties coming to the market. Whatever your circumstances, if you are a first time buyer, or looking for an investment property, are upgrading/downsizing or are unfamiliar with the area we can help and offer professional advice with a personal and friendly service.

    Remember! As a purchaser you will need to pay stamp duty - the thresholds have recently changed and are as follows:

    Purchase Price of Property (£) Rates to be paid on the part of the property that falls within each band.

    £0 - £125,000 = 0%

    £125001 - £250,000 = 2%

    £250001 - £925,000 = 5%

    £925001 - £1,500,000 = 10%

    £1,500,001 and over 12%

    If the property you are purchasing is not your main home and will result in you owning more than one property then you have to pay an additional 3% stamp duty on the above bandings. If you are in any doubt we would advise that you visit the following government page to correctly calculate the amount payable:  www.tax.service.gov.uk/calculate-stamp-duty-land-tax

    From the moment you offer on a property through us we are always on hand to help with anything you need. However, even if you're not buying a property through us, Durrants can still help you with other services you may require.

    Our built environment team specialises in surveys, planning and architecture and design.

    Our residential department has a key contact list of trusted local solicitors and local removal firms. It is worth noting that we are not tied to any particular firms for financial gain like some other agents and therefore recommendations we give are completely impartial.

    We are also able to offer independent advice from a local financial advisor - please contact us for more information on this. Our motto is if we wouldn't recommend someone to our own families, we won't recommend them to you.
