Escape to a more spacious home with Help to Buy

Date: Thursday 26 December 2013

Moving UpHouseholders who dream of a home with more space can escape to a bigger property by taking advantage of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme with Taylor Wimpey.

Growing families will appreciate the need for a home which gives them that essential extra bedroom, while others may long for a bigger kitchen or a house with a garden – all of which are available at the leading housebuilder’s developments across the country.

Kevin Belsham, UK Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “A lot of people will be stuck in a rut, wondering how they will ever be able to afford a bigger place.

“With the introduction of the Help To Buy scheme, many purchasers will find they can afford a larger home than they might have previously thought possible, even if they have limited equity in their existing home. That’s because with Help to Buy, they only need a 5% deposit to buy a new home.

“For anyone living in a home which is becoming too small for their needs, that extra bit of space can really make all the difference to their everyday lives.

“I’d urge anyone who dreams of a luxury lifestyle in a spacious new property to speak to the Sales Executive at one of our nearby developments without delay.”

The Government’s Help to Buy equity loan scheme enables first-time buyers and those looking to move house to secure a Government loan for 20% of their new home’s full price – meaning they only require a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a 5% deposit.

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

All Taylor Wimpey homes are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood and are backed by a two-year warranty and a 10-year guarantee from the National House-Building Council.
