L&Q: First time buyer event at Beauchamp Park, Warwickshire
Collection of Shared Ownership homes available in Gallows Hill, Warwick
A new collection of Shared Ownership homes will be available at L&Q’s Beauchamp Park development at Gallows Hill in Warwick this month. These new homes will give aspiring homeowners the chance to buy in one of the UK’s most desirable towns.
With average house prices in the area around £334,111 many home buyers may feel like they can’t afford to take that first step on the property ladder. However, L&Q, one of the leading housing associations is helping them do just that.
Andrea Palmer, L&Q’s Head of Regional Sales, said Shared Ownership is a fantastic option to help would-be-buyers get onto the property ladder and is a stepping stone to purchasing a property for those who can’t afford to buy a home on the open market; “While Shared Ownership isn’t a new scheme, there is still some confusion among potential buyers about how it works, who’s eligible to buy a Shared Ownership property and the language that’s commonly used.
“Our event from 4pm-7:30pm on Wednesday 12th January is a must-visit for any aspiring buyers. We’ll have our sales team available to talk about the scheme in a jargon-free way including an independent financial adviser to provide unbiased financial advice and talk to visitors about whether they qualify to use the Shared Ownership scheme and how it could work for them. Anyone interested in attending should get in touch with us to book their place.”
Shared Ownership, available on selected two, three and four bedroom homes at Beauchamp Park from January 22nd, enables those on lower incomes and the growing number of people wanting to get onto the property ladder, to part-own and part-rent a property, usually paying a mortgage on the part they own and with a subsidised rent on the part they don’t. As their income rises, they can increase the share they own until they eventually own 100% and no longer pay any rent to L&Q in a process known as staircasing.
Enjoying an enviable setting in one of the country’s most desirable locations, Beauchamp Park at Gallows Hill provides buyers with the best of both worlds – a semi-rural location in the heart of the English countryside but with quick and easy access to the wide range of amenities in Warwick or further afield in Coventry or Birmingham.
Homes at the development have been designed to ensure they’re in keeping with the local area and have been influenced by the Georgian, Regency and Tudor-style properties typically found in Royal Leamington Spa and Warwick. Properties are built in a mix of brick, render and striking metalwork, that tie in with their surroundings and mark the gateway to Royal Leamington Spa.
Shared Ownership prices start from £124,250 for a 35% share of a three bedroom house (FMV: £355,000). To register your interest in the Shared Ownership home buyer event visit lqhomes.com/beauchamppark/events.
