Gifted Deposit helped First Time Buyer purchase a new home at Gainsborough Place

Date: Wednesday 07 December 2011

“My partner Cathy and I had been saving for a deposit for about a year, and spent a couple of months looking at properties in Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill, when we found the home we wanted at Taylor Wimpey’s Gainsborough Place development.

“We were really pleased to secure a Gifted Deposit from Taylor Wimpey, which meant we could afford to put down the right deposit using our savings, topped up by the 5% gift. A smaller outlay was very useful for both of us, because buying a first home can be an expensive time.

“As I work from home, having a second bedroom was a must for us, because I’ll need an office, and having a garage with our apartment is also very handy as we can use it for storage. Our new Taylor Wimpey home has everything we’ll need.”
