No more renting
Paul and Julie Haines, 55 and 50, had spent the best part of a decade in rented properties in Bicester, but were eager to find a home they could finally call their own. Although their budget was limited, they knew they could use the Government-based Help to Buy equity loan scheme to secure a new build home with just a 5% deposit.
Paul and Julie explored a range of sites around Oxfordshire, and with help from the Taylor Wimpey team were able to move into a three-bedroom Crofton G at the Bridleways development in Banbury before their rental contract ran out.
The couple got the keys to their new home earlier this year and are now settling into their new community.
