North East Somerset MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Visits Linden Homes At Impact, Midsomer Norton

AWARD-WINNING Linden Homes Western showcased its Impact development in Midsomer Norton, near Bath in Somerset, to local MP Jacob Rees-Mogg during a recent visit.

Tim Smale, Technical Director, Sue Schofield, Sales Director and members of the site team gave Mr Rees-Mogg the chance to view the progress being made at the development and to discuss a number of issues concerning the economy and the house building industry.

Mr Rees-Mogg said: "I was pleased to have the opportunity to visit Impact and to see how Linden Homes is building properties that reflect the needs of the local community. I was also delighted to hear that many of the building materials are locally-sourced.

“I was encouraged to hear that the Government’s recently announced new ‘Help to Buy’ scheme has already had a positive effect on the housing market. There are some excellent examples here at Impact, of purchasers who otherwise might not be able to purchase a new home now looking forward to getting on or to moving up the property ladder thanks to this initiative. ”

Sue Schofield added: “We are delighted that Mr Rees-Mogg was able to view our development at Midsomer Norton. We always welcome the views and feedback of the local representatives in and around the areas we work, particularly regarding the house building industry and the current economic situation.

“We are extremely proud of this development which is becoming one of our fastest selling schemes.”

Under the new Government-backed equity scheme, ‘Help to Buy’, the Government provides a loan of up to 20% of the property value. This means that, with a minimum deposit of 5%, purchasers only need to secure a 75% mortgage.

As well as ‘Help to Buy’, Linden Homes offers home buyers a range of flexible moving schemes such as Part Exchange* and Assisted Move*. It is also offering to pay the Stamp Duty on any new home bought and completed before the end of June at the site.

The show home is open daily from 10am to 5pm. For more information call 0844 488 3061.
