Agents welcome Help to Buy ISA scheme
A three-bedroom detached house to rent at Wyndham Way, Ashford, may be just what you need.
Priced at £945 per month, the house, with garden, is on the books of Seekers Lettings. There are two double bedrooms, one with en suite and power shower and both with fitted wardrobes. There is one single bedroom.
The lounge has double doors leading to the modern kitchen/diner and patio doors leading to the conservatory. The garden is enclosed and there is a garage, as well as off-road parking for two cars. Connells Maidstone are among estate agents who have welcomed the forthcoming introduction of the Help to Buy ISA announced in George Osborne’s Budget.
The Help to Buy ISA will assist first-time buyers save for a deposit by allowing individuals to save up to £200 a month towards their first home which the government will then boost by 25%.
Branch partner Carl Zehntner said: “This is welcome news for those struggling to take their first step on to the housing ladder.
“We see this as another positive incentive to help people save for their first home and a welcome addition to the Help to Buy scheme which enables purchasers to buy a home with only a 5% deposit.”
The new ISAs will launch in the autumn through banks and building societies and be available to take out for up to four years for homes worth up to £250,000.
