Green developer’s grant advice day
SUSTAINABLE developer, Citu, is staging an open day for firsttime buyers at its Greenhouse apartment development in Leeds today.
The Citu team will be offering advice on Firstbuy, the Government’s grant-funded scheme, which helps buyers get on the property ladder with a five per cent deposit.
Firstbuy offers a joint loan of 20 per cent of the property price from the Government and the housebuilder, which means that buyers only need to put down a 5 per cent deposit to qualify for a 75 per cent mortgage. This means first-time buyers can get on the property ladder at Greenhouse with a deposit as little as £5,450 for a one-bedroom apartment. www.greenhouseleeds.co.uk
