Affordable home ownership scheme helps three families buy their first homes

Families receiving their keys to their new affordable homes.

Three families have moved into new homes at Oldencraig Mews, the Chartwell Land and New Homes development in Lingfield, with one home still available to buy.

These new homes were available at a reduced sale price for first time buyers on a low household income, either living in the district or with a strong local connection. Offering homes at discounted market sale, helps local people get a foot on the property ladder and is just one way we can maximise the amount of affordable housing in the district.

The discount on the homes is guaranteed to stay the same for a long time. This means anyone buying these homes in the future will benefit from the reduced sale price if they are a household on a low income, with a connection to the district.

One of the new homeowners, Henry, said: “We are delighted with our new family home, the reduced price allowed my partner Becky and I to afford a fantastic new two bedroom home, with a garden for our one year old daughter to enjoy for many years to come. We cannot wait to meet the neighbours and be part of the local Lingfield community.”

Chairman of the Housing Committee, Councillor Jeremy Pursehouse, said: “I am delighted these three families have been able to buy their first home in Lingfield. We are pleased our partnership with Chartwell Land and New Homes has delivered these new homes. We hope we can work with them and other developers in the future to build affordable homes for local people.”

Land and Sales Director, Martyn Avery, from Chartwell Land and New Homes, said: “As a local property development company, we are extremely proud of being able to provide four high quality discounted market homes to the Lingfield community and hope to roll out the same housing product on future developments within Tandridge.”
