A London black cab driver and his young family have upgraded into a brand new home at De Lacy Fields in Chesterton, thanks to David Wilson Homes’ Part Exchange scheme.

Cabby Vic Armand and his wife Hannah bought the brand new three bedroom detached house at the development giving them extra room for their eight-year-old son, Joe.

“We previously lived just down the road and passed the De Lacy Fields development on numerous occasions, always wondering what it would be like to live there,” said Vic, 56, “Now we have settled in we believe it to be the best decision that we have ever made!”

Hannah, 37, an operations manager for a pharmaceutical company, says; “This new home gives us the space to be able to raise our family without the worry of us all tripping over each other, the layout is a real bonus.”

Mr and Mrs Armand are one of many examples of families moving into a new home with David Wilson Homes’ Part Exchange scheme. With Part Exchange the company arranges for the property to be inspected by two independent valuers and makes a fair offer based on the average of the two valuations to 100% of its market value. All the purchaser needs to do is agree with the valuation and reserve their new David Wilson home.

Plus, as David Wilson Homes is effectively a cash buyer there is no chance of a chain falling through and purchasers can concentrate on enjoying their new home.

Hannah continued; “We’re so pleased to have been able to move into our new home using the Part Exchange scheme. From the moment we signed the paperwork to the day we got our keys it has been a smooth process, everyone at David Wilson Homes Mercia have been so helpful.”

Steve Barton, Senior Sales Manager for David Wilson Homes Mercia commented, “The Part Exchange scheme is ideal for those fed up of the stresses that come with selling their old property and want to move as quickly as they can.

“I’m really pleased that the Armand family has had such a good buying experience with us at De Lacy Fields. It’s a lovely development that is perfect place for young families to grow.”
