    Default Just binned Charles Church

     
    Well, what a farce of a company, seriously.
    We decided to go for one of their houses and it was also discounted from 340k to 310kband also included carpeting. It was reduced because of the small garden, and it had been Sat for unsold.
    Anyway our contracts came through from our solicitor to say that we were to pay stamp duty on the 340k and not the 310 purchase price, which was a 2500 increase! We weren't told this when we were doing our reservations and handing over the 1000.
    Be aware anyone buying a discounted house as they may still try and bill you for the full stamp duty.

    No, our solicitor is our solicitor with no affiliation with any new build company. And I also spoke to the area sales manager who also said that we would be paying the 2500 difference as the house has been registered as 340k and that is the stamp that is required to be paid on it and the 30k discount is an 'incentive.' Absolutely ludicrous to say the least and wouldn't even entertain them paying it and not us, we'll they've lost the sale, and I'm not being bullied or mislead by a big builder!

    because of web sites like zoopla ....others can find out what house prices went for ...so the builder wants to keep your house price high ...so others dont try to barter them down or surveyors down use it as a comparable to lower prices or similar homes

    also
    if they say they have have registered it ...who with ....they are lying ...when the sale goes through it gets registered with the land registry at the sale price

    and
    if they have confirmed they will pay the increase in duty to keep the actual price a secret ....then they should keep their word ...you have it it writing form anyone , or witness to the fact ?

    its worth pushing their buttons for 2.5k ...thats a lot of cash to be down
    Many Thanks
    Steve
