David Johnston's story

When his mum passed away, David was left with half the proceeds from the sale of her house, which would have been enough for a small flat but not the house and garden he wanted.

Why the Home for Life Plan?

Inheritance wasn’t a worry for David as he knew his sons already had an inheritance guaranteed, but nevertheless involving his family in this decision was extremely important. David had been left half of his mum’s property when she passed away, but this wasn’t enough to buy the house and garden he wanted.

How Homewise helped

The purchase process was fairly complex for David, something that our Move Simply service helped with. The house had a tenant living there who eventually had to be evicted before David could move in, but with the help and support of our Home Moving Team, everything eventually came together.

Living the dream

Since moving in, David has put a lot of work into renovating the house with a completely new kitchen, bathroom and landscaped garden. He’s now looking forward to his fifth holiday this year and already has three more booked for next year… it’s alright for some!

I’m so glad I did it because it’s really solved a problem. I’m looking forward to everything and all because of Homewise.

Hugh and Helen could have bought without Homewise, but with children living in Australia and South Africa, they wanted to keep enough money aside to travel and enjoy their retirements.
