Help To Buy

Help to Buy: Equity Loan
Are you a first time buyer looking for a home in South West England? Help to Buy can help you get on the property ladder with just a 5% deposit.

How Does it work
Help to Buy is a Government-backed scheme available exclusively for first time buyers on new build properties. With Help to Buy, first time buyers can purchase a new home with only 5% deposit and a Government loan of up to 20% of the value of the property. This means you’ll only have to obtain a mortgage for the remaining 75% of the full price of your new home.

Want to move to a stunning new Curo home but have a property to sell? With our Swift Move scheme, it couldn’t be easier! Swift Move is a quicker way to sell your house at market value, while saving money on estate agent fees, advertising and marketing costs.

  • Step 4 We instruct an agent to market your property – this is when you’ll do a final check of the sales particulars to make sure you’re happy.
  • Step 5 We work with you and the estate agent to help you achieve the best price for your current home.
  • Step 6 When an acceptable offer is made, the estate agent will make sure the process runs smoothly through to completion.
  • Step 7 You move into your beautiful new Curo home.
Curo Swift Move
*Please note that we offer the Swift Move scheme subject to availability and eligibility. We aim wherever possible to help our customers to sell their property through this scheme. The actual move-in date may be subject to the build completion date of your new Curo home. The selling fee is arranged directly between Curo Homes and the estate agent. The Swift Move scheme cannot be offered in conjunction with any other Curo homes offer, scheme, reservation incentive or discount.

Curo Smooth Move

Are you keen to move to a new home but selling your current property is putting you off? Let us take the stress, hassle and delays out of your house move with our part exchange scheme, Smooth Move.

Who is it for?
If you’ve set your heart on a brand new Curo home but are worried about having to sell the property you currently own, our part exchange scheme can help. With Smooth Move, we could buy your property so that you can move into your new home as quickly as possible. To use our part exchange scheme, the value of your current home needs to be at least 30% lower than the value of your chosen Curo home.

Why choose Smooth Move part exchange?

  • No estate agent fees – because we buy your home direct, you can save up on costs
  • Stay in your current property until your new home is ready – no need to think about renting or ‘sofa surfing’ between moves
  • No chain and no delays – you don’t need to worry about the sale of your property falling through

To find out whether you can part exchange your way to a brand new Curo home, book an appointment with one of our Sales Advisers and see which properties are available in your chosen development.

Curo Smooth Move
Part exchange is only available on selected plots and developments. Part exchange will only be available where the home being traded in is no more than 70% of the selling price of the plot being purchased. Part exchange is only available up to a maximum value of £420,000 for your old property. We will appoint two independent valuers to value your home on the basis of a sale within eight to 10 weeks. If there is a discrepancy of more than 10% between the 2 valuations we will appoint a third valuation. We are under no obligation to make an offer. If you have already incurred costs (e.g. estate agents or legal fees) at the time of negotiating a part exchange Curo will not reimburse these costs. An offer made by us under the part exchange scheme is subject to any necessary further enquiries or reports We reserve the right to market the property you are selling prior to your move into a new Curo home and you agree to allow reasonable access to the property to facilitate the resale (subject to agreed appointments) and to the erection of a ‘for sale’ sign at the property. You agree to cancel any existing agreements with estate agents and agree that you are responsible for any fees due to them. You agree that no party is currently negotiating to purchase the property you are selling and that no introduction has already been made by any other party. On completion of a home purchase by us under the part exchange scheme we will retain a £1000 retention bond which will be refunded to you provided your old property is left in an acceptable condition and you submit accurate meter readings to utility companies. We reserve the right to refuse a part exchange and we are under no obligation to give reasons why. All valuations and decisions are final.
