The Pennyfarthing Promise

The simple, stress-free path to your new home
The Pennyfarthing Promise

The simple, stress-free path to your new home

With over 40 years of house building experience, we understand that purchasing a new home whilst selling your current one isn’t always easy.

At Pennyfarthing we will make a promise to you: find your dream new home and we’ll give you peace of mind by taking it off the market for six weeks. You can then focus on selling your existing property.

What’s more, we will contribute to your moving costs with:

  • Up to £10,000 towards estate agent fees for selling your current property
  • £1,500 towards solicitors’ fees
  • £1,000 towards your removal costs
  • A £500 John Lewis gift card

How does our six-step promise work?

  1. Choose the new Pennyfarthing home you would like to purchase
  2. We will contact up to three estate agents local to you, via our friends at The New Homes Group, for valuations to be completed on your current property. We will then discuss and agree a suitable price to market it at
  3. You can then formally reserve your new Pennyfarthing home by making a £150 payment. We will take your chosen home off the market for six weeks
  4. Throughout the six weeks we will keep in touch with you and the agent appointed to sell your existing property. We hope by working together a sale will be achieved in this timeframe
  5. Once your existing property is sold and a complete chain is in place, you will convert to a ‘full’ reservation by paying the remainder of the reservation fee
  6. We will continue to liaise with your solicitor and the estate agent appointed to sell your existing home to ensure a smooth progression towards completion day, when you will receive the keys to your new Pennyfarthing home

What Our Customers Say...

A company that goes to great lengths to help its customers.

I just wanted to thank Malcolm for all his help in getting our kitchen door replaced. He went to great lengths in contacting the supplier and sending photos (twice) to ensure that this replacement door that was a good match.

Mr Forster

Excellent customer service!

Malcolm came to see me yesterday. Made a note of the outstanding issues and told me he would be in touch today. True to his word he called me first thing and by 11 am he fixed two items and the final item is booked in for next Thursday. This is customer service!

We are really grateful and very impressed with the care and attention Pennyfarthing Homes has provided at every stage of the process of acquiring the lovely new home Pennyfarthing have built for us. We could not have asked for a nicer experience and you are all to be congratulated.

Mr Leavesley

Pennyfarthing Homes Homeowner

We chose a Pennyfarthing home at The Dormy Ferndown as we felt a lot of thought had been given to the designs of them and the quality of the kitchens and bathrooms. The attention to detail is very obvious, the very first time we visited the site and show house we could see this.

Mr & Mrs Crease

Pennyfarthing Homes Homeowner

Having recently moved into The Dormy at Ferndown we would like to express our satisfaction and delight, not only with our new home but for the excellent service we have received throughout the whole process of buying our new home from Pennyfarthing Homes.
