Help To Buy Could Help You Into A Beautiful Linden Homes' Apartment
01 Jul 2013

The extremely successful and popular Peninsula development from Linden Homes and Crest Nicholson South in Nash Mills Wharf is just one apartment away from being a sell-out.

This beautiful, contemporary development has really caught the imagination of home buyers and is located alongside the Grand Union Canal near King’s Langley and Hemel Hempstead. With lovely views of the beautiful surrounding countryside and spacious interiors The Peninsula is positioned perfectly on the doorstep of the great outdoors.

This remaining apartment at Peninsula qualifies for the Government’s new Help to Buy scheme. The scheme which came into force on April 1st is a Government backed equity scheme that enables buyers to purchase a new home with just 5% deposit and a 20% Government equity loan – a loan that can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years and its interest free for five years.

And it’s a scheme that has been taken up with enthusiasm by buyers already.

Trevor Lepley bought his new four bedroom Linden home using Help to Buy – and was one of the first in the country to do so. He says he simply couldn’t have managed it without the scheme:

“There is no way I could have afforded a four bedroom house without Help to Buy. I secured a mortgage of 3.09% and my new home is only £90 more a month than the rent I was paying out for the two bedroom flat I was in previously - a flat that was a third of the size of my new house.”

Simon Pendlebury is the sales and marketing director at Linden Homes Chiltern:

“I think once people start to look into the Help to Buy scheme, they’ll realise that many doors are open to them. Like Trevor Lepley, they may not have imagined being able to afford a home of the specification that we produce – or one located in such a unique, contemporary, convenient and beautiful setting.

“The scheme has been devised to make it easier to either buy your first home, or move up the property ladder and it is really worth investigating – especially if it means you can afford a home like the final apartment now available at The Peninsula.”
