Ease your way into retirement in Radyr

15th February 2010 Print

If you’re looking to enjoy the benefits of retirement living but are concerned about the costs and hassle of moving home, why not visit McCarthy & Stone at its retirement development Cwrt Brynteg in Radyr and see if they can not only get you moving – but save you money too.

During February and March, purchasers at the development can take advantage of McCarthy & Stone’s Move and Live Free for a Year* scheme and enjoy their moving costs and living expenses for the first year paid for in full by the retirement developer.

The package includes estate agent and solicitor fees paid, arrangement of your Home Information Pack, a free removals service to help with decluttering and packing up your existing property plus free council tax, TV licence, contents insurance, electricity, water rates, telephone line and calls, service charge and ground rent for the first 12 months, courtesy of McCarthy & Stone.

Aileen King, sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone South West, commented: “Moving home can be a daunting process at any age, which is why we do everything we can to help make the process as smooth and as stress free as possible. The big advantages of moving to a retirement development like Cwrt Brynteg is it provides a real sense of security and companionship. It also enables you to retain home ownership as there are a number of features built into our apartments to help you maintain your independence as you get older.”

And for those who are struggling to sell their existing property, McCarthy & Stone can help get you moving with its Part Exchange* and Guaranteed Purchase Plan* schemes.

Through Part Exchange, McCarthy & Stone will purchase your existing property at an agreed price, saving you the hassle of chains and delays and estate agents’ fees. To qualify for the scheme, you’ll be asked to answer a few simple questions about your current home and McCarthy & Stone will then arrange for three valuations before making an offer for the property.

Alternatively, with McCarthy & Stone’s Guaranteed Purchase Plan, the developer will help find a buyer for your existing property within 12 weeks at an agreed price. The retirement developer will then market your existing property through selected estate agents and if a realistic offer is received below the agreed selling price, you can still accept the offer because McCarthy & Stone will guarantee to make up the shortfall!

Cwrt Brynteg is a modern development of 51 one and two bedroom apartments located in the picturesque village of Radyr, just outside of Cardiff. Each apartment has been designed especially for retirement living and special care and attention has been paid to incorporate features such as 24 hour emergency Careline call points, electrical sockets at a raised height to reduce bending, illuminated light switches, a security entry system, easy grip lever taps in the bathroom and kitchen and energy efficient heating.

Residents at Cwrt Brynteg can also enjoy landscaped grounds, socialise and relax in the communal lounge and invite family and friends to stay in the development’s guest suite.
