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.
