Help Is At Hand If Your New Year Resolution List Includes Buying A Brand New Home (Midlands)
05 Dec 2013

LOSING those few festive pounds, joining the gym or stubbing out smoking; Linden Homes can’t help customers achieve these New Year resolutions, but CAN assist with buying a new home!

With many people waiting until the New Year to start giving serious thought to snapping up a brand new home, Linden Homes is helping to make that process as easy as possible.

With a number of incentives currently available to kick start the house buying journey, now is a great time to bag a January sale when it comes to a new home – particularly if you have your heart set on a 2014 move.

Whether you a looking to set foot on the housing ladder, thinking about downsizing, need a bigger home for your growing family or have an existing property to sell – Linden Homes can help.

These include:

Help to Buy – available on new build homes, with customers requiring a minimum five per cent deposit. The government will lend you up to 20 per cent of the value of your property through an equity loan, which can be repaid at any time or on the sale of your home. Buyers will only need to secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society. The maximum home purchase is £600,000.

Also requiring just a five per cent deposit is NewBuy - aimed at bridging the gap for people who have previously been unable to buy their first home or move house.

Linden Homes will work in partnership with major high street to help you buy your new home with just a five per cent deposit and secure a 95 per cent fixed rate mortgage. The scheme is available on apartments and houses up to £500,000.

Part exchange - Linden Homes will arrange for at least two independent valuations of your existing home and will make you an offer based on their suggestions. Once you agree the offer, and subject to satisfactory surveys, Linden Homes becomes your buyer, freeing you up to put in reservation on your new home. After that, it's a case of setting a moving-in date, boxing up your things, and basking in the relief of a quick chain-free move to the home of your dreams. You can stay in your existing home until your new one is ready.

Linden Homes sales director Chris Roads said: “Many people wait until Christmas is out of the way before really turning their attention to moving house, and indeed buying a brand new home.

“With so many incentives available, the New Year is a great time to think seriously about moving to one of our many developments – many of which are close to excellent schools, great amenities and easy road and rail links, but all of which boast wonderfully designed quality homes.”

  • Bluebell – Bingham, Nottinghamshire
  • Oasis – Lincoln
  • Orchid – Oakham, Rutland
  • Poet’s Corner – Helpston, Peterborough
  • Roman View, Greens Norton, Northamptonshire
