We are delighted to announce that Leon House has received approval to offer the brand new Help To Buy scheme… on all of our remaining apartments!
What is Help To Buy?
The government’s original Help To Buy scheme, launched in 2013, helped thousands of buyers to take that first – or second step – onto the property ladder. The revised, 2021 version of the Help To Buy scheme differs in that it caters to first time buyers exclusively.
What does this mean for buyers at Leon House?
Having access to the Help To Buy scheme means that first time buyers currently reserving with us can secure their apartment with just a 5% deposit. While there are regional differences outside of London, right here at Leon House, 40% of your property’s value will be provided by the loan and the rest will be covered by your mortgage lender.
First time buyers at Leon
Chris Ford’s first time buyer journey typifies that experienced by so many residents here at Leon. Having moved onto the 16th floor just a few days before lockdown in 2020, 35 year old Chris hasn’t looked back since.
As a Croydon local, Chris fell in love with Leon as soon as he saw the apartments were in development a few years ago: “I started saving right away for my deposit because, for me, it was the dream place to live. Not only could I stay in my hometown, close to family and friends, but I would also feel like I’m living in a New York hotel.
“I thought an apartment like this would be impossible if I stayed in Croydon. Never in my wildest dreams would my childhood self have imagined living in a luxury apartment in Leon House. I think the redevelopment is fantastic.”
