Housebuilder Larkfleet Homes (www.larkfleethomes.co.uk) is offering ‘fast track completions’ on selected homes at its Leighfield Park development in Oakham during May.
Larkfleet currently has several properties on the site complete and ‘ready’ for homebuyers to move into. If the properties are reserved now, buyers could be in their new properties by the end of June – just in time for summer!
The Leighfield Park development is aimed at families looking for a stylish, traditional home that allows them to enjoy rural life while still benefiting from good transport links to surrounding towns and cities.
The development currently offers traditionally-styled three, four and five-bedroom properties with prices starting from just £184,995 for a three-bedroom property.
All 143 properties at Leighfield Park will have solar PV (photovoltaic) panels fitted as standard so homebuyers can benefit from reduced energy bills. The PV panels will produce electricity from daylight, generating useable power even on cloudy days. Larkfleet will also provide allotment gardens for residents to encourage a sustainable lifestyle and community.
Larkfleet can not only help homebuyers secure their ideal home sooner than they think, they could also own a new home for less than they imagine as Larkfleet now offers the government’s new ‘Help to Buy’ scheme at its Leighfield Park development.
The Help to Buy scheme allows homebuyers to potentially own 100 per cent of their new home with just a 75 per cent mortgage and 5 per cent deposit.
With the new scheme, after homebuyers have provided a five per cent deposit and obtained a conventional mortgage for just 75 per cent of the purchase price, they will receive an equity loan from the government for the remaining 20 per cent (subject to approval). The equity loan is interest free for five years and can be repaid at any time or on the sale of the home.
The Help to Buy scheme is different to some other government schemes as it is not just available to first-time buyers. Current homeowners selling to buy a new home can also benefit from the scheme and there is no cap on household income in order to be eligible. Furthermore, there is no restriction on the number of bedrooms a property may have, so in theory a single person could purchase a four-bedroom property with the Help to Buy scheme.
Karl Hick, Larkfleet’s managing director, commented: “I would urge anyone looking to purchase a property to visit our Leighfield Park development in Oakham and find out what Larkfleet has to offer. We understand the financial circumstances of our buyers vary so we have several schemes, including the new government Help to Buy scheme, available to assist buyers. Many buyers may discover that they could own their own Larkfleet property much sooner – and for less – than they think.”
Leighfield Park, located between the Oakham bypass and Barleythorpe Road, is the first phase of Oakham Heights, Larkfleet’s major urban expansion of Oakham.
