On Saturday 14 October, key workers – which includes NHS, teachers, police and fire services, MOD, local authorities, probation and prison services, environmental service, and national highways – will be eligible for exclusive offers from Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes that will help get them onto – or up – the property ladder, at Victoria Heights in Alphington, Okement Park and Hampton Mill in Okehampton, Fairfax Heath in Tiverton, and Berry Acres in Paignton.
No appointments are needed to attend the events which build on the housebuilders’ commitment to supporting key workers with its Deposit Contribution scheme, making help available for critical frontline workers.
Under the scheme, key workers receive a £1,000 deposit contribution for every £20,000 of a home’s purchase price. For instance, a property that costs £325,000 means key workers qualify for a contribution of £16,250. Flooring is also included.
During the first six months of the year, Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter has helped 17 key workers across Devon buy their own homes, with deposits totalling £299,377.
Nicki Reid, sales director for Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter, said: “As a thank you for our essential frontline workers, this weekend’s events are the perfect opportunity for key workers to visit our developments in Devon and find out how we can tailor a package to help make their first – or next – move to a brand-new, energy efficient home happen.”
To attend an event on 14 October, key workers should make their way to the sales office at the development they are interested in between 10:00am to 5:30pm. Here, they will be greeted by a sales adviser who can help them learn more about the deposit scheme.
