Your acceptance will be required within 2 working days and any confirmed written offer must be returned within 2 working days of receipt. Upon acceptance your Reservation Agreement will be processed, subject to Anti-Money Laundering checks we must undertake. If you do not accept the price that we offer for your existing property to be marketed at, your application for Movemaker will be cancelled.

You must enter into a Movemaker Agreement with BDW Trading Limited (the trading company of Barratt Homes) concerning the sale of your existing property, which will include a time period for the marketing of your existing property.
