Article image House-hunters in South Wales who are looking to make that all-important move onto or up the property ladder will find all the help they need at Crest Nicholson’s Penarth Heights development near Cardiff.

Crest Nicholson’s support of the Help to Buy scheme in Wales is already helping buyers to not only afford their dream home for right now but also reduce the number of steps homeowners need to take before buying their ‘forever family home’.  

Help to Buy is available on new-build homes up to a value of £300,000. The initiative enables homebuyers to own their own home for just 80 per cent of the purchase price with a deposit of as little as five per cent. The remaining 20 per cent of the property price is lent to the purchaser by the Welsh Government through the HCA and is interest free for the first five years.  

Rebecca Gripton, Sales Manager at Crest Nicholson, said: “Help to Buy has been very popular at Penarth Heights, and it has helped many people buy their dream home in the area. Penarth Heights offers a wonderful range of apartments and homes, which have all been designed to a very high specification and, most importantly, which all have energy efficiency and modern living at their heart.
