Escape the Landlady

Tired of the woodchip wallpaper in your rented home? Sick of asking your landlord’s permission before hanging a picture? Dreaming of escaping that awful avocado bathroom suite?

Buyers of a brand new home with leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey can benefit from choosing their own decor rather than be left with the landlord’s questionable colour scheme.

Purchasers of a Taylor Wimpey new-build home will enjoy a blank canvas on which to stamp their own sense of style, whatever their taste in interior design.

And those who reserve their new property early enough can even choose from Taylor Wimpey’s extensive range of interior options, allowing them to select from our range of kitchens and bathroom suites, tiles, flooring, fixtures, fittings and accessories – all of which will be installed before they move in.

Kevin Belsham, UK Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “The way we decorate our homes says a lot about our personality, whether it is the colour of the walls, the furniture we choose or the pictures we put up.

“By purchasing a new Taylor Wimpey home, buyers can enjoy the freedom of choosing their own decoration to best reflect their own taste and style.

“What’s more, house-hunters can visit our showhomes to get plenty of ideas for colour schemes and decor to bring out the best in their stunning new house or apartment.”

Thanks to the Government’s Help to Buy equity loan scheme, getting on to the property ladder with a new Taylor Wimpey home could be easier and more affordable than prospective purchasers might think.

Help to Buy enables first-time buyers and existing homeowners to secure a Government loan of up to 20% of their new property – meaning they only require a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a 5% deposit.

The initiative is available on new-build properties up to the value of £600,000 (£400,000 in Scotland and £300,000 in Wales). There is no salary cap for homebuyers taking advantage of the scheme.
