From first time buyers to those looking to move up the property ladder and in to a larger home, Barratt Manchester has helped a whole range of people secure a new home with only a 5% deposit.

Barratt Manchester recently helped the 1,400th customers purchase their dream home using Help to Buy.

Wayne Lamb (29) and Kelly McNab (24) are the milestone couple that recently purchased a four bedroom detached home from Barratt Manchester using Help to Buy at The Spinnings development in Preston. Speaking about their purchase Wayne said,

“We decided we wanted to move to the Preston area because it makes it easier for my commute to work. We had a look around a couple of new developments and we loved the layout of The Spinnings. We had also seen that Barratt Manchester was a five star house builder so we knew we would be in good hands.”

Kelly said, “We thought it would be stressful and time consuming to buy a house, especially as I have just set up my own business, but Barratt Manchester made it really easy for us and kept us updated throughout the whole process. It was also a no brainer for us to use Help to Buy as the repayments are interest free for five years and you only need a 5% deposit.”

Barratt Manchester’s Sales Director, Michaela Lancaster spoke about the achievement.

“A lot of people don’t realise that Help to Buy isn’t only for first time buyers, but for anyone looking to purchase a property. The only rule is that it has to be your only property, you cannot own another.

“Since the scheme became available in April 2013, people across the country have used Help to Buy to help them move on to or up the property ladder. At Barratt Manchester we are so proud to have reached the 1,400th milestone and we hope to continue growing this number for as long as Help to Buy is available.”

Wayne added, “Because of Help to Buy we were able to buy much quicker and still had money left over in our savings. We are so pleased with our new home and definitely couldn’t have done it without Help to Buy.”

The Spinnings hosts a range of three, four and five bedroom homes starting from £227,995.
