A HAND-OUT to rival those given out by the “Bank of mum and dad” is being offered as a lifeline to buyers hoping to buy a brand new home in Handforth.

Parents and grandparents are supporting relatives to the tune of £6 billion a year, with the amount being offered increasing. Recognising that not all buyers are in the fortunate position to be able to bank on financial backing from family members, Elan Homes is stepping in to help.


The homebuilder is offering to cover the cost of Stamp Duty on selected properties at Handforth Court. Subject to plot, that’s a saving of £7,500 to £9,500.


Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Stamp Duty is something many buyers forget to budget for when purchasing a home. Some people are able to turn to their parents for help, but not everyone is able to enjoy that luxury. We’re stepping in and offering to pay the Stamp Duty and just like many parents, we aren’t expecting buyers to pay the money back!”



Handforth Court is an intimate development, offering an exclusive choice of three and four-bedroom townhouses. Because the homes are set out over three floors, they maximise the potential of the footprint. This makes the properties competitively priced. Current prices range from £349,995 for a three-bedroom Ashforth to £389,995 for a four-bedroom Adderley.


Along with Stamp Duty, the price of the Adderley includes carpets, curtains, light fittings and landscaped rear garden.


To the ground floor of the property is the well-equipped kitchen to the front, with a combined lounge and dining room to the rear. There’s also a convenient cloakroom on this level.


On the first floor are two double bedrooms and the family bathroom.


The master with en-suite is on the top floor, along with the fourth bedroom.


Located on Wilmslow Road, homes at Handforth Court are perfectly placed between the Cheshire countryside, Wilmslow and Manchester, enabling its residents to enjoy the best of countryside, town and city living.
