"Bought & Sold a house... Within 2 Weeks!"


Kevin Heathorn, a freelance TV producer, lives with Paula, a media manager for the BBC and their cat, Crunchie. They have just bought a new five bedroom townhouse at Linden Homes’ Beechfield Grove development, located in a peaceful residential area between Hartley, Mannamead and Peverell.

Speaking about the move, Kevin said: “We are delighted with our new house and cannot believe how quickly, or how smoothly, everything went – we reserved our new home on 8th December and completed on 21st December

“If it hadn’t been for the part exchange scheme then we definitely wouldn’t have moved. We hadn’t considered selling as there were already three homes in our road for sale, so there was a lot of competition and we did feel a little trapped. Part exchange enabled us to move quickly and save money on the estate agent fees.

“The idea of a brand new home really appealed to us as there’s no leaky roof or any need for modernisation, which gives us lots of time to spend relaxing rather than painting rooms!”

Kevin, who has lived in Plymouth for over 20 years, added: “We’ve had a wonderful experience and Linden Homes took us through the whole part exchange process step-by-step. The recommended solicitors, Bright Solicitors, were also fantastic, especially working to such a tight timescale so close to Christmas.

“I just can’t believe that we bought a new home and sold ours – all within two weeks!”
