A Glossop couple have achieved their goal of getting married and moving house in just one year thanks to our Yorkshire team and the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme.
Nicola and Stephen Tottey tied the knot in May 2016 and moved to our Laurel View development with their eight-year-old son, Harry, the following April.
Stephen comments: “We were both born and raised in Glossop and all our family and friends live locally so we knew we wanted to stay nearby.
“Laurel View was one of the only new-build schemes in the area, therefore it was perfectly situated for us and what we needed.”
The family were able to secure their three-bedroom Gosford home with the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which meant that Nicola and Stephen only had to save a 5% deposit.
Stephen adds: “I wouldn’t say that we would have struggled to move without Help to Buy, as we love a challenge, but it certainly would have taken us longer. We wouldn’t have been able to get married and buy a house in the same year.
“The Sales Executives also helped to speed the process up by answering all of our questions and concerns. Being first-time buyers we were quite nervous to begin with, but they soon put a stop to that and kept us updated every week on any developments.”
Laurel View currently offers a choice of three-bedroom homes.
