Help to buy advice day at High Wood, Lancaster

February 2017

On Saturday 25 February, we are holding an event for potential buyers at High Wood in Lancaster to provide expert financial advice on mortgage and incentives available including Help to Buy, HOME scheme and part exchange.

There are so many options available – whether you are a first time buyer or looking to sell your existing home and move up the ladder – it’s really important to find out what is the best option for you and to do your research. So, join our experienced sales executive and an independent financial advisor who will be there to guide you through the buying process and give advice on how much you can expect your monthly repayments to be for example.

The Government’s Help to Buy scheme aims to help buyers who have a deposit of at least 5% to buy a new home up to the value of £600,000. The government will lend you up to 20% of the value of your new home via an equity loan, so you will only need to secure a 75% mortgage. The equity loan is interest free for five years and you can pay it back at any time or on the sale of your home. This initiative is available to help all homebuyers, not just first time buyers, to own their own new build home in England.

Our financial advisor Acumen specialises in new build mortgages and works alongside us to ensure mortgages are progressed as smoothly as possible. They will be on hand to help customers work out their home buying budget and provide approximate mortgage repayment. With so many choices and options for mortgages, it’s important to know exactly what would suit you best to help choose the right property for you, and they are here to help.

Sales Manager Clare Wilson said: “It can be really daunting moving home or buying a home for the first time, but we are on hand with our financial advisor to assist buyers through the whole process and to explain our full range of incentives available – there is something for everyone.

“Many people are surprised at the range of options available to them after speaking to an independent financial advisor. Events like this are a great opportunity to take advantage of having both a knowledge sales executive and a financial advisor on hand to discuss opportunities and guide our buyers through the whole process.


“We work closely with our financial advisor to ensure a smooth housebuying journey for our customers. It’s great that they are going to be at the marketing suite and our show home on Saturday 25 February where potential house buyers can find out all the information they’ll need in one place.” continued Clare.
