A team of Bellway staff will be on hand to help buyers find out more about the Help to Buy scheme at a roadshow which has been organised by Help to Buy South.

Home-hunters will be able to find out more about the housebuilder’s developments in the region and how Help to Buy could help them at the De Vere Alexandra House in Swindon on Saturday November 4th.

Visitors to the event will also be able to get free advice from a selection of independent financial advisors and solicitors.

Since it was first introduced in April 2013, over 134,000 properties have been purchased with the use of the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme, with the value of the properties purchased totalling over £32bn.

The scheme allows people to buy a new build home with a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage, with the remaining 20 per cent provided in the form of an equity loan which is interest free for the first five years of home ownership. The scheme is available for buyers to purchase a new build home under the value of £600,000.

Sales Manager for Bellway’s South West division, Rachel Way, said the event gives people a great chance to find out more about how the scheme could help them.

She said: “Help to Buy has had a huge impact on the housebuilding industry ever since the scheme was introduced in 2013 and roadshows like this are a fantastic way for home-hunters who may not know too much about the scheme to speak to lots of experts to see if it could help them.

“We see many visitors to the site who have never considered using the scheme either because they hadn’t done any research into how it worked or they didn’t realise they were eligible to use it. Many associate the scheme with first-time buyers because of the smaller deposits it requires but it can also provide different options for homeowners as well.

“Help to Buy is proving incredibly popular at our developments in the region. Almost 40 per cent of legal completions at some of our developments, such as Mulberry Park in Bath, are being made possible by the scheme.

“Our sales staff are looking forward to meeting some new faces at the Help to Buy roadshow, and we would urge anybody who is considering a move to pop along to the event to get some honest and expert advice on how the scheme could help.”

Bellway’s South West division is currently building new homes at a number of developments in Bristol, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Somerset.
