They will also be able to help visitors work out how much they can afford in monthly mortgage payments, and how the Easy Start scheme makes selected one-bedroom apartments at 793 London Road available for only £118,995*.

Marie-Claire Travis, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Our ‘How to Be a First-Time Buyer Day’ is a must for anyone hoping to step onto the property ladder, and makes free, individual advice available to those attending.

“All first-time buyers need to own a new home at 793 London Road is a 5% deposit of around £7,000. With Easy Start, they receive a 10-year interest-free loan covering 15% of the purchase price of their new home, enabling them to gain an 80% mortgage without having to save a large deposit.”

Each one-bedroom apartment available for £118,995 using the Easy Start scheme at 793 London Road is characterised by a spacious lounge/dining room and open-plan fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood, while a double bedroom, a bathroom and a handy storage cupboard can also be found off the entrance hallway.

Ideally located in Thornton Heath, 793 London Road is within easy reach of a wide range of shops and restaurants, a new sports and leisure centre and Thornton Heath railway station, which puts London Victoria only 25 minutes away.

Croydon town centre is just two miles from the new homes, providing an excellent array of trendy bars and places to eat, a wealth of shops and leisure facilities including the Centrale shopping centre, the Clocktower theatre, Croydon Sports Arena and a choice of cinemas and dance venues.
