“This is the first home that my wife Victoria and I have bought together and we’ve been saving up for about a year, so it’s fantastic to have finally moved into our new place at Taylor Wimpey’s Leybourne Chase development in West Malling.

“Because we were first-time buyers we were able to use Taylor Wimpey’s shared equity scheme, which helped us a lot. Without it, buying our own place would have been an absolute squeeze, especially with a baby on the way. But thanks to the help we received, our mortgage payments are much more affordable.

“Taylor Wimpey also gave us a £3,000 voucher to put towards a whole range of interior Options, which meant the flat was fully fitted with a dishwasher, washer drier, fridge freezer and flooring when we moved in.

“Our new home is lovely – all the rooms are good sizes, with a good flow between them, and because the apartment is brand new means we don’t have to worry about repairs.

“All the staff at Leybourne Chase have been fantastic and really did a lot for us.

“We love the fact our new home is right out in the countryside, yet it’s convenient to get the train to work. It’s lovely when you work in London to come home and be able to get away from everything.”
