A fantastic homebuyer incentive is making it easier to secure brand new properties in Watford at Taylor Wimpey’s Leggatts Green development.

Home-hunters are now able to secure high-quality properties with just a 5% deposit thanks to the NewBuy scheme at Taylor Wimpey’s Leggatts Green development of houses and apartments for sale in Watford.

This incredible Government-backed initiative helps both first-time buyers and those looking to move home by enabling Hertfordshire property-seekers to access 95% mortgages on properties up to the value of £500,000.

The scheme makes it easier for credit-worthy purchasers to secure affordable mortgages without the need for large deposits or significant equity in an existing property – and it’s available now at Leggatts Green with the one and two-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom houses for sale in Watford.

Mark Wallace, Regional Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey, says: “The return of 95% mortgages under the NewBuy scheme is excellent news for those looking to secure their first home, as well as those wanting to move but have limited equity in their current property.

“With prices starting at just £155,000 at Leggatts Green would-be buyers could secure their perfect property with a deposit as low as £7,750!

“But with NewBuy availability strictly limited, I would advise potential purchasers to get in touch with us as soon as possible to make sure they don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity.”

The four-bedroom ‘Campus’ townhouse, for example, is priced from £310,000 and features a light and airy living/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a contemporary fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a guest cloakroom of the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to two bedrooms and a main bathroom while the en-suite master bedroom and a further bedroom can be found on the top floor. There’s also a car port and additional allocated parking outside.

All new homes at Leggatts Green are completed to a high standard specification, including central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.

Leggatts Green is conveniently located just a short walk from two supermarkets, while only two miles away is Watford town centre, which offers superb shopping as well as a host of bars, clubs and restaurants. The Harlequin shopping centre boasts 130 stores including John Lewis and Marks & Spencer.

For relaxation, one of the country’s top hotels, The Grove, offers luxury facilities including a spa and tennis courts as well as a prestigious golf course, while Cassiobury Park is perfect for scenic walks, cycling and picnics, with 190 acres of green space, children’s attractions and a wide variety of sports facilities.

Parents will appreciate that there are many schools within close proximity, providing education for children of all ages.

And for commuters, Watford Junction railway station is just under two miles away and offers regular services to London Euston in about 30 minutes, while its West Coast route provides direct trains to Manchester and Glasgow. Also within a one-mile radius are Junction 5 of the M1 and Junction 19 (westbound) of the M25, while Junction 20 (eastbound) is only a two-mile drive away.
