Housebuilder and developer Larkfleet Homes (, part of the Larkfleet Group (, is making house-hunting easier for homebuyers thinking of moving to the East of England or East Midlands.

As part of a new ‘chauffeur service’, Larkfleet is offering to collect potential homebuyers from various train stations in the East of England and East Midlands – or in some cases their current home town – and take them on their very own tour of its developments across Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire.

Larkfleet’s own branded vehicle will transport homebuyers to as many sites as they wish – the perfect option for homebuyers who are not familiar with the area but are interested in relocating, or even those who know the area but want a stress-free new home search.

During their chauffeured tours, homebuyers can spend time speaking to sales staff in the different Larkfleet showhomes and learn more about what Larkfleet has to offer at its different developments.

And if people want to really get a feel for the quality homes Larkfleet provides, and the areas in which they are located, the company is offering homebuyers an opportunity to ‘try before you buy’. Potential homebuyers can ‘try out’ a Larkfleet property for a weekend – or perhaps even longer.

Both schemes can significantly reduce the costs incurred by homebuyers who would normally visit showhomes in their own vehicles and probably make several trips to the area.  The schemes also allow people to enjoy a more relaxed, informed and personal viewing experience.

In addition, if potential homebuyers purchase a Larkfleet property after enjoying its chauffeur service, Larkfleet will reimburse the new homeowners for any additional travel costs (such as train fares).

Larkfleet managing director Karl Hick commented: “At Larkfleet, we understand that searching for your next home can be time-consuming – and expensive when travel costs are taken into account! With our chauffeur service, homebuyers can sit back and relax as they get to know the local area and what Larkfleet developments have to offer.

“We believe this chauffeur service sets us apart from other housebuilders in the area and highlights our commitment to quality customer care.

“Our ‘try before you buy’ scheme is also perfect for those homebuyers who wish to spend a little longer learning about the area and Larkfleet properties.”

Larkfleet’s ‘try before you buy’ scheme is available at its Leighfield Park development in Oakham, Rutland and The Croft lifestyle living development for the over 55s in Bourne, Lincolnshire.

Larkfleet has put together informative guides on Oakham and Bourne, as well as nearby Peterborough so that customers staying in the ‘try before you buy’ properties can take full advantage of the local areas in which Larkfleet has developments.

Larkfleet now offers the government’s new ‘Help to Buy’ scheme on selected developments which allows homebuyers to potentially own 100 per cent of their new home with just a 75 per cent mortgage and 5 per cent deposit.

The Help to Buy scheme is different to some other government schemes as it is not just available to first-time buyers. Current homeowners selling to buy a new home can also benefit from the scheme and there is no cap on household income in order to be eligible. Furthermore, there is no restriction on the number of bedrooms a property may have, so in theory a single person could purchase a four-bedroom property with the Help to Buy scheme.

Larkfleet Homes has several developments across the East Midlands and East of England including Bourne (Lincolnshire), Peterborough (Cambridgeshire) and Oakham (Rutland) which offer plenty of choice for those looking to purchase a home.
