Taylor Wimpey is urging aspiring first-time buyers to stop lining their landlords’ pockets – and become homeowners for potentially less money each month at its Leggatts Green development of new homes for sale in Watford.

Two-bedroom apartments for sale in Watford are priced from just £193,500 at this popular development and can be purchased by credit-worthy homebuyers with a 5% deposit as low as £9,675 under the NewBuy scheme.

With the average monthly cost of renting approaching £1,100 for a two-bedroom property in Watford, the benefits of buying one of the brand new Taylor Wimpey Watford apartments at Leggatts Green are clear to see.

Christine Scarborough, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “So many people still believe that living in rented accommodation is more affordable than buying when, in fact, the opposite is often true.

“With the cost of renting at an all-time high and rock-bottom interest rates ensuring some great mortgage deals are available on flats in Watford, there’s really no reason for renters of Watford properties to continue throwing good money after bad when they could be investing in their future with a brand new home of their own at Leggatts Green.”

The stylish two-bedroom apartments to buy in Watford at Leggatts Green each benefit from a spacious open-plan kitchen/living/dining room with Juliet balcony, an en-suite master bedroom, a well-proportioned second bedroom and a main bathroom, plus allocated parking outside.

Under the Government-backed NewBuy scheme, credit-worthy purchasers in a range of circumstances can secure their choice of new homes in Watford at the development with a 95% mortgage and a 5% deposit.

The initiative is ideal for first-time buyers who are struggling to raise a significant deposit or for current homeowners with limited equity in their existing property.

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.

Watford Junction railway station is just under two miles away with regular services to London Euston in about 30 minutes, plus direct trains to Manchester and Glasgow. 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.
