Let Burghley Retirement take the stress out of moving

How buying a retirement living apartment works

Own your retirement apartment

At Burghley Retirement Living, we are able to offer you the option to part exchange your existing property when buying your new home, so you don’t even need to find a buyer, regardless of whether your home is more or less the same value of your new apartment.

Our Easy-Move scheme

Our Easy-Move scheme

We know that the process of moving can be stressful so the Burghley ‘easy-move’ service* is there to smooth every step of the way. It includes an end-to-end removals service that packs and unpacks your belongings, and a contribution towards estate agent fees and legal fees. We even provide you with a handyperson within the first 30 days of moving, to help you make your new home your own, undertaking fiddly tasks such as hanging pictures, fitting curtain poles and putting up shelves.

Found your dream home but worried about selling?

You might want to consider the Part Exchange route. By doing so you can avoid stress and inconvenience, and look forward to moving in to your dream home.

If you are looking to buy a Burghley Retirement apartment but need to sell your existing property then an obvious factor is being part of a chain (a sequence of linked house purchases that can be small or large). The larger the chain, the greater chance of issues that could affect the sale of your new property – causing you stress, inconvenience, and worry. If you have found the ideal apartment and wish to secure it as soon as possible, then why not consider the Part Exchange option?

Burghley Retirement offer the Part Exchange option, proactively handling all aspects of the process; from the initial valuation right through to completion.
