Last month, the Chancellor announced plans that the Help to Buy scheme will be extended to 2023 for first time buyers. Whilst this is great news, the plans also revealed that under the new proposals, second steppers may only benefit until 2021. Therefore, home hunters keen to take advantage of the scheme in order to move up the property ladder, must act sooner rather than later. Crest Nicholson is currently offering the initiative at a number of its developments in the Midlands, including the sought-after areas of Rugby and Bournville, as well as coming soon to Coleshill, Hereford, Shipston-on-Stour and Solihull.  


Now is the perfect time for purchasers to buy their dream home using the government backed Help to Buy scheme with as little as a 5% deposit. The initiative, which is available on all new build homes worth up to £600,000, enables prospective purchasers to receive an interest free equity loan for up to 20% of the property value, meaning only a 75% mortgage is needed to make up the rest.


All the luxurious one and two bedroom apartments at Bournville Park are available with this scheme, making it ideal for first time buyers and downsizers. Located just five miles from the centre of Birmingham in the West Midlands, the development is set within the grounds of Northfield Manor House, on the edge of the picturesque village of Bournville. Residents will be well catered for with a variety of shops, restaurants, schools and healthcare facilities on the doorstep, as well as plenty of open green space to explore.
