Why A Skills Based Competition?
When we bought Dullatur House it needed a lot of modernisation but that didn’t scare us off. We upgraded, restored and painted away merrily and turned it into a great family home. Life presented our family with various personal challenges along the way, then I lost my job and unable to find another suitable I faced the reality of being unable to pay the mortgage.
I’ve tried to sell the house through the traditional route using Estate Agents for the past 12 months, without success. Lots of people love the house, but we are fishing in a very small pool of people who can actually afford to buy it.
Instead of the banks flexing their muscles and repossessing this lovely home we’ve decided to take matters into our own hands. We found other people running a similar competition; it’s worked for them, so why not us? Offer someone the opportunity of a lifetime to own a fantastic Scottish Country Mansion House – Mortgage Free!
The entry fee is £5 per ticket and requires you to answer a skills based question about the house.
We also allow free written entry by 1st class post, and all entries either paid or free will be treated equally.
The closing date for entries is December 18th 2017 at 12 noon GMT.
We hope to sell 250,000 tickets to include our costs such as LBTT (Land and Buildings Transaction Tax) Legal Fees, and to complete any last minute jobs to ensure the house is perfect as possible for the next owner. If we achieve our paid entry target of 250,000 tickets by 9th December 2017 we will donate £25,000 to MacMillan Cancer Support, as our way of thanking everyone for their support.Buy a Ticket
