New builds offer a prompt and hassle-free purchasing process, and are a real opportunity for buyers looking to guarantee completion before the deadline on 31st March. As completed new-build homes, the eight remaining properties at The Tramyard in Balham are a silver lining for motivated buyers wanting to take advantage of reduced SDLT during this short window. Buying new a build represents a much more efficient purchasing process compared with second-hand properties, and the team at Joseph Homes are geared up to help more buyers in winning. With over 90% now sold, it is the final chance to buy at this award winning development. Prices start from £699,995 for a two-bedroom apartment, meaning that any purchasers who complete before the deadline will be eligible for the maximum £15,000 saving.

The final eight homes at The Tramyard are ready for occupation, with the Joseph Homes team primed to expedite paperwork within three days of an accepted offer, removing hurdles of property completion before the stamp duty deadline. They have also ensured searches at the homes have been pre-completed, along with other relevant documentation, to give buyers a genuine head start. Working with recommended suppliers, a fast-moving buyer can purchase a completed new build high-specification home, without the fear of gazumping or the unpredictability of a chain.

Sean Ruane, Sales Director of Joseph Homes, comments: “As we approach the sharp end of the stamp duty holiday, it is important for buyers to know that there are still significant savings to be made, by buying a completed new build home, despite the impending deadline.

“The faster transaction period is one of the many benefits of buying new build, and in a time-restricted window it can be a great relief for buyers to know they can still make the most of the SDLT break. Our homes offer a chain-free solution and a smooth approach to property purchasing, prioritising efficient sales completions for buyers. I would urge anyone considering buying before the stamp duty deadline to contact us as soon as possible, especially cash buyers or those purchasing with a straightforward mortgage agreement.”

Joseph Homes is the only B Corporation-certified housebuilder in the UK, bringing an activist mind-set and fresh perspective to the property sector. Known for redrawing the map and forcing many to demand higher expectations of new build property, the developer prioritises building better homes for a better world, with the health and wellbeing of their residents and communities at the core. This includes sourcing environmentally friendly materials, using sustainable methods of construction and sourcing interiors that help to reduce toxins and promote indoor air quality.

Each home has private outside space with communal gardens and large floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise natural light. Internally, the homes use non-toxic paint, low VOC (volatile organic compound) materials, pollen filters to alleviate hayfever, as well as MVHR (mechanical ventilation and heat recovery), and ensuring clean, filtered air throughout the homes. This all results in a consistently high standard of internal air quality, reducing the impact of harmful chemicals. The properties come with expansive floorplates and a warranty for peace of mind while sustainable construction methods optimise energy use, promising lower maintenance costs than an older property.
