Property-seekers looking for a little help to step on or up the property ladder can take advantage of a superb opportunity to snap up their dream home at Taylor Wimpey’s Welbury Meadows development in Hailsham, East Sussex.

The Help to Buy equity loan scheme is now available at the development, enabling eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to secure a Government loan of up to 20% of the full price of their new home – so they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a deposit as low as 5%.

Jason Stokes, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We have a range of properties available at Welbury Meadows, from stylish one-bedroom coach houses to spacious three and four-bedroom houses, so there’s something for all kinds of purchasers, whether they’re first-time buyers or existing home-owners.

“Help to Buy offers them just the help they need to make that important step on or up the property ladder, as they can secure a property with a low deposit and then take advantage of a wider range of competitive deals from lenders to ensure their monthly mortgage repayments are more affordable.

“The scheme is attracting plenty of attention, so prospective purchasers are being urged to hurry if they want to take advantage of the exceptional deal now on offer!”

The three-bedroom ‘Becket’, for example, is available with Help to Buy at Welbury Meadows and offers a wealth of generous accommodation across three floors.

Priced from £224,995, this beautiful family-size property features a living/dining room opening through French doors to the private garden, plus a kitchen/breakfast room and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to two bedrooms and a main bathroom, while the en-suite master bedroom enjoys appealing seclusion on the top floor. Outside, the property benefits from a garage and allocated parking.

Meanwhile, alternative three-bedroom designs at Welbury Meadows are priced from £234,995, four-bedroom houses from £294,995 and the one-bedroom ‘Clove’ coach house-style apartment at £149,995.

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

Help to Buy is available on all new-build properties up to the value of £600,000 and there’s no salary cap for purchasers using the scheme.
