New homes are perfect first step

Happy tenants are moving into our new development, The Burgage in Eccleshall, Staffordshire. The new homes are our first Rent to Buy scheme, which allows first time buyers to rent their home at a reduced rent and save a deposit to buy the property in the future.

The 24 new, two bedroom houses feature a lounge, kitchen diner, utility space and downstairs WC as well as parking and gardens making them an ideal choice for a first home.

Choosing Eccleshall because of its location and beautiful scenery. James Pope and Hannah Beetwell have always wanted to live in a more rural town and received their keys this week. They said;

"We are very excited to be moving into this lovely new house, the size and location is perfect for us. The rent to buy scheme is great as it gives us the opportunity to buy our first home together. As keen photographers and animal lovers we can’t wait to start our new life here.”

About Rent to Buy

Rent to Buy is a government backed scheme aimed at renters who are looking to purchase their first home. Monthly rent costs are approximately 20% lower per month than private rents, for up to five years. This allows people to save towards a deposit to buy a home in the future.

During that time they have the option to buy the property outright, or a part of it under a shared ownership scheme.

To apply you must be a first time buyer or returning to the market following a relationship breakdown and not own any other residential property.

We still have a few homes available at the Burgage. You can find out more on our find a home page here.
