Own A New Home In An Idyllic Somerset Village With Flexible Moving Schemes
03 Sep 2013

Home-buyers can now own a village property at Linden Homes’ Mendip Gate development in Kilmersdon, Somerset, with the help of a range of flexible moving schemes to help you get on – or move up – the property ladder.

Designed to save buyers time and money, schemes such as Part Exchange*, Assisted Move* and Help to Buy[1] could see you moving into one of just nine bespoke three- and four-bedroom homes at this beautiful village development.

Located on the edge of the Mendip Hills but within easy access of Bath, Bristol and Wells, Mendip Gate offers stunning high-quality detached and semi-detached homes for those looking to enjoy the country life but with the convenience of easy access to local towns and cities, Kilmersdon offers home-buyers the opportunity to live in an idyllic Somerset village with an historic church, a pub, its own primary school and highly regarded secondary schools nearby.

With Assisted Move, purchasers can buy a new home at Mendip Gate and Linden will sell yours, deal with the estate agents, pay their fees and ensure buyers get the best price for their existing home. Alternatively, with Part Exchange, Linden becomes your guaranteed cash buyer so movers can buy and sell in one easy step with no chain and no estate agent fees.

Under Help to Buy, the Government provides an interest-free loan for the first five years of up to 20% of the property value. This means that, with a minimum deposit of 5%, a new home can be secured with a 75% mortgage.

At Mendip Gate, Help to Buy is available on The Willows, three-bedroom homes which can be secured with a 5% deposit.

The Government loan can be repaid at any time or on the sale of the property and is open to all qualifying home buyers of new-build properties in England up to the value of £600,000 – not just first-time buyers.

Sue Scholfield, Sales Director at Linden Homes Western, said: “We have seen a lot of interest in our flexible moving schemes, and would encourage people come and talk to us to better understand which scheme would be the most beneficial for them. They won’t be disappointed, Mendip Gate really is a beautiful location combined with stunning homes with all the modern conveniences of modern living.”
