Selected apartments at Taylor Wimpey's Leggatts Green development of new homes for sale in Watford can be purchased for 80% of their full price under the FirstBuy initiative.
First-time buyers have an exceptional opportunity to secure a stunning new apartment with just a 5% deposit at Taylor Wimpey's popular Leggatts Green development of apartments for sale in Watford.
The Government-backed FirstBuy initiative offers qualifying purchasers the chance to access selected two-bedroom Watford apartments at the development for 80% of their full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.
That means the Plot 53 'Block 3' property for sale in Watford, with a full purchase price of £197,950, can be secured for a FirstBuy price of just £158,360, including a 5% deposit as low as £9,900.
This superb scheme gives first-time buyers the chance to purchase new flats to buy in Watford much sooner than might otherwise have been possible.
Christine Scarborough, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: "FirstBuy is helping more and more first-time buyers step on the property ladder right across the country - and now it's available with selected flats for sale in Watford at Leggatts Green.
"With such a great deal available, I'm not expecting it to be long before purchasers snap up these gorgeous Taylor Wimpey apartments in Watford - so the message to prospective buyers is to visit our Sales Information Centre without delay."
The stylish two-bedroom apartments now on sale at Leggatts Green each benefit from a spacious open-plan kitchen/living/dining room with Juliet balcony, an en-suite master bedroom, a well-proportioned second bedroom and a main bathroom, plus allocated parking outside.
FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which eliminates the need for a big deposit. The loan is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, purchasers must be first-time buyers and their total household earnings should be less than £60,000.
Alternatively, under the Government-backed NewBuy scheme, credit-worthy purchasers in a range of circumstances can secure their choice of new homes at the development with a 95% mortgage and a 5% deposit.
