New home just at the right time

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

For Char­lotte and Dar­ren Wadey, a home on a new hous­ing de­vel­op­ment came along at just the right time.

The cou­ple and their two young daugh­ters, Chloe,10, and Jessica, three, had been hap­pily rent­ing a home at Alling­ton, Maid­stone, for 10 years and were all set­tled in jobs and schools, when their land­lord served them no­tice to leave.

They used the Help to Buy 5% de­posit scheme at The Or­chards de­vel­op­ment in Alling­ton and are now en­joy­ing life as home­own­ers.

Char­lotte, 36, said: “Chloe had al­ready been at school for a year when we were given no­tice by our land­lord. We were ob­vi­ously dev­as­tated be­cause we were liv­ing in the ideal lo­ca­tion.

“I’m a nurse at a lo­cal hos­pi­tal and Dar­ren works nearby, so our first pri­or­ity was to stay in the area.

“We wanted to pro­vide sta­bil­ity for our girls, so no one could take our home away again.

“At The Or­chards, we were able to up­grade to a three-bed­room home, where our last house only had two.”

The Or­chards, by Bar­ratt Homes, has three, four and five-bed­room fam­ily homes, priced from £339,995.
