Help With Help To Buy
25 Jun 2013

The popular Help to Buy initiative will be the focus of an event being staged at Linden Homes’ Howden Green development on Saturday June 29th.

Through the government backed initiative, qualifying purchasers* with a 5% deposit can take advantage of a 20% government-backed equity loan that is interest free for the first five years and can be repaid at any time within 25 years. This loan is effectively a second mortgage, so buyers need secure just a 75% mortgage to secure a home.

The scheme has proved very popular with Linden Homes buyers and so the company has decided to focus on the benefits it can bring to purchasers during the opening of the new show home at the Howden-le-Wear site.

There are just four plots remaining at the development, the detached four bedroomed, two storey Wear and the three bedroomed, three storey mews style Greta. The Help to Buy event will be between 10am and 5pm on June 29th in the marketing suite at Howden Green (DL15 8BG). Alternatively people can call 01388 763 436 for further information.

*Help to Buy is subject to terms and conditions which are available at the Howden Green sales office.
