Qualifying purchasers need only to find a 5% deposit – as little as £4,500 – and Taylor Wimpey will help arrange a mortgage covering 80% of the price of selected new homes for sale in Oldbury.
The remaining 15% is provided by the housebuilder in the form of an interest-free loan which can be repaid in up to three instalments over a 10-year period.
Daniel McGowan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Our incredible Easy Start scheme at Latimer Square can make home ownership a reality for buyers in search of new flats in Oldbury, new homes in West Bromwich or flats in Dudley, who would otherwise struggle to raise enough money for a significant deposit.
“This simple and effective scheme always attracts a great deal of interest from would-be homeowners, and with only a limited number of plots available with Easy Start, qualifying purchasers will need to be quick to take advantage.”
Easy Start shared equity is available with selected two-bedroom ‘Jackson’ apartments, priced from just £76,495 under the scheme, and ‘Dallas’ two-bedroom apartments, priced from only £84,995 under the initiative.
The ‘Dallas’ and ‘Jackson’ apartments each benefit from a light and airy lounge/dining room with open-plan kitchen and French doors to an attractive Juliet balcony, plus two well-proportioned bedrooms and a bathroom off the private entrance hallway.
‘Dallas’ apartments also boast en-suite facilities to the master bedrooms, while each home comes with allocated parking outside and is completed to a high standard specification, including central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchen with contemporary units and integrated oven, hob and hood.
Oldbury town centre, which is less than a mile from Latimer Square, blends traditional architecture with modern design.
The central square, and the waterways which arrived with the Industrial Revolution, add a vibrancy and style to this Black Country town. The canals are now used for pleasure boats and fishing, while a superb range of shops and restaurants occupy many of the striking, red-brick buildings.
The area is also home to a choice of schools for children of all ages, and for commuters, the M5 is a few minutes’ drive from the development and Langley Green railway station is less than two miles away.
