NewBuy, the widely anticipated Government and housebuilder-backed scheme aimed at increasing availability of low deposit mortgages, is being offered by Taylor Wimpey on homes in Lancashire.

The initiative, available on new properties up to the value of £500,000, means that credit-worthy first time buyers may now need to save only a 5% deposit before they can get on the property ladder. Home movers with limited equity in their existing house will also benefit from the increase in availability of 95% loan to value mortgages.

Anthony Mansfield, regional sales and marketing director, said: “We welcome the NewBuy scheme as we believe it will go a long way in helping a wide range of buyers who have had to put their dreams of getting on or moving up the property ladder on hold due to the size of deposits required by mortgage lenders.

“We are offering the scheme on all our developments across the region including Blackburn, Leyland and Whalley, near Clitheroe where we have a range of properties from two bedroom apartments to five bedroom detached homes.

“With prices starting from £74,995, buyers would need a deposit of only £3,750 under the NewBuy scheme.” The NewBuy scheme is available through three mortgage lenders, all offering fixed rate deals.
