Housebuilder hosts help to buy advice day

A leading housebuilder is holding an open day this weekend so buyers in North Bersted can get free independent expert advice on how to make their next move on the property ladder.

The Help To Buy advice event will take place at the Charles Church Willows Edge development on Saturday 7 September, between 11am and 4pm, for people to find out about the Government-backed scheme.

Linda Humphrey, Charles Church South Coast sales manager, explained that the Help To Buy advice day can show buyers how the scheme will make their first or next home move even easier.

She said: “Help To Buy was launched by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in his spring budget and has really given a boost to the housing market.

“It means people can own 100 per cent of their new home for just 80 per cent of the purchase price using the scheme.

“An Independent Financial Advisor will be on hand during the day to give expert advice and our sales team is fully trained to offer practical assistance throughout the buying process.”

Help To Buy is available to anyone buying a new-build home up to the value of £600,000. All that is needed is a five per cent deposit.

The Government will put in up to 20 per cent through an equity share loan, the remainder will be funded by a repayment mortgage. The loan can be paid back at any time over the next 25 years, or when you sell the home, and there is no interest to pay on this portion for the first five years.

The aim of Help to Buy is to assist more people across the country make the aspiration of home ownership a reality.

Willows Edge, on Chichester Road, offers a wide range of high specification family homes from £239,950. The development is just 1.5 miles from the centre of Bognor Regis and 4.5 miles from Chichester.

Each home has been carefully designed to be in harmony with its surroundings, with interiors that make the very best use of light and space and lots of individual touches.

Linda added: “We look forward to welcoming house hunters during our open day and feel sure that we can help them get on or move up the property ladder.”
