Retirees in Leeds are being offered a helping hand by McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, with its new no-stress, fuss-free initiative, which promises to speed up the moving process to its Thackrah Court development by offering a cash offer within ten days of valuation of their property.

Potential purchasers are encouraged to reserve their place at the Smart Move Open Day at Thackrah Court along Shadwell Lane, on June 11 between 11am and 3pm, where the sales team will be on hand to answer questions. All those who reserve before July 4 will receive a £500 discount and a £1,000 contribution towards solicitor’s fees.

McCarthy and Stone’s new Smart Move service aims to eliminate the inconvenience of selling on the open market, allowing househunters to downsize to a high-specification, low-maintenance apartment. The housebuilder will also handle all removals, ensuring purchasers’ belongings are transferred from one home to another, free of charge.

Karen Harrowell, Sales Manager for McCarthy and Stone, explains: “Visitors to Thackrah Court have instantly fallen in love with the great location and enjoyable lifestyle it offers in retirement. Once the decision has been made to downsize, it can be extremely frustrating to have to wait to sell an existing property, so we want to make it as easy as possible for retirees in the Leeds area to make the move by taking away the worry of removal fees and the uncertainty of selling on the open market.”

Designed specifically for the over 70s, McCarthy & Stone’s Assisted Living development at Thackrah Court bridges the gap between conventional retirement living and residential care so homeowners are able to retain independence in the form of home ownership yet, still have the peace of mind from a range of additional 24/7 security and support services.

Onsite facilities include a fantastic table service restaurant, a homeowners’ lounge, a lift and flexible domestic and personalised care packages, which can be tailored to provide varying levels of support according to homeowners’ individual needs. A dedicated Estates manager ensures the smooth running of the development, with 24 hour, 365 days a year on-site staffing, providing peace of mind for both homeowners and their families alike.

Thackrah Court is situated in the highly desirable suburb of Shadwell based just six miles away from the vibrant city centre of Leeds. There are plenty of local facilities including a medical centre, dentist, post office branch, library, newsagent, churches, social club and tennis club. There are good transport links connecting Shadwell to Leeds and nearby Harrogate.

To secure their space at the open day, retirees are encouraged to call 0113 268 9562. For further information on Smart Move at Thackrah Court please visit: http://www.mccarthyandstone.co.uk/smartmove
