House builders developing properties in the have signed up to the ’s FirstBuy scheme, designed to help first-time buyers’ purchase newly built properties.

The scheme works by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and the house builders loaning a total of 20 per cent of the property price, meaning purchasers only have to make up the other 80 per cent from savings and a to buy a home outright.

It is anticipated that FirstBuy could help up to 200 households in the East Riding between now and 2013 and because FirstBuy is only available on new-build properties it also offers a timely boost to the market as well as supporting jobs in the construction industry and related trades.

Councillor Symon Fraser, cabinet portfolio holder for housing, environment and planning at Council, was pleased with the announcement.

He said:  “We all know that house prices in the East Riding are beyond the reach of many people living and working here, especially those trying to set up their first home.  It has become very difficult for people to save the large deposits banks and building societies want.

“This scheme offers help to first-time buyers and will be most welcome, it will also help to shorten the council’s housing waiting list.”

Subject to contracts being signed over the summer, house builders offering FirstBuy in the East Riding, will include national builders , Bovis, David Wilson, Gladedale, , Persimmon and Redrow, as well as local firms, such as Fulford Builders and Peter Ward Homes.

A variety of property types and sizes will be available on schemes across the whole of the East Riding, including the main towns of , , Brough, , , , , , , and , as well as smaller villages, such as Barmby Moor, Beeford and Hook.

David Curtis, executive director at the Homes and Communities Agency said: “I am really pleased that our will mean that local people can buy the home they want at a price they can afford. By having homes available in almost 20 locations from nine developers means that first time buyers will have a fantastic choice. “

Anyone wanting more information should contact the house builders direct, or approach my4walls, the local HomeBuy Agent at www.my4walls.co.uk

No fees are charged on the loan for the first five years and the loan has to be repaid when the property is sold or the mortgage paid off.

“We are the only housebuilder to offer a free five-year warranty on fixtures and fittings to give added peace of mind to our customers. This is in addition to the ten-year NHBC warranty on the structure of the building.”

Yorkshire East has welcomed a recent outpouring of support for its new home plans across the region.

In light of recent reports that the average age of a in the UK has risen to 37, residents close by to recently submitted applications have been standing up against opposition; explaining why they feel new developments are so important for the future of the region.

The planning department at the ’s Yorkshire East division is working on a series of proposals across North and including developments for , , Pickering, Cayton and more.

Recent support has come through public events and even direct letters to the housebuilder. Comments include:

Retired Firefighter Brian Johnson, who used to chair a residents association in a fight against a development, is now in support of plans. He said; “Let’s all take time to look at the bigger picture, we need houses, we need and most importantly we need employment. “

All plans are subject to stringent community consultation to ensure they meet the needs of the locality in terms of socio-economic and environmental factors. This process ensures needs such as additional school places created by the development are provided through funding to extend existing facilities or provide new ones where appropriate.

Carol Bailey wrote; “The benefits are immense and will be giving the community a sense of pride.”

Letters of support have also been coming in from across the region in support of developments which will be vital for provision as today’s children grow.

Paul Butler, Planning Manager for Barratt Homes commented: “We work hard to produce plans that incorporate the needs of the locality while bringing other benefits to the existing communities; be that through the provision of sports facilities, school funding or additional transport routes.

“We think most people agree that while we may move several times throughout our lives we all value our homes and understand the need to keep making provisions for those seeking to take that important first step onto the ladder.

“If you consider the large number of social and economic benefits that the development of new homes provides, as well as resolving existing local issues such as school capacity, drainage infrastructure or highways capacity then we would hope that everyone can get behind these schemes, recognising the long term benefits.”

2011 begins with a boost for the buy-to-let industry, as an increasing number of residential landlords say that they are confident in the marketplace.


Findings from the January Upad Landlord Confidence Index show that 63% of residential landlords are more confident than last month, up from 60% in December.

 

337 landlords responded to the question “Are you more confident or less confident about the buy-to-let market than you were last month?”

 

Of those who said that they felt more confident, most cited increased tenant demand for properties as the reason. Comments included:

 

•        “Rents are edging up even in South Wales. There’s demand from young women in particular for well presented properties that are competitively priced. “

 

•        “Within the last month I have raised rents by 10% across my whole portfolio.  Whether this is a true reflection of the rental market or whether rents have been artificially inflated due to lack of activity, remains to be seen.”

 

•        “There seems to be a great demand for good quality rental properties.  Wish we had more!”

YORKSHIRE’S leading has unveiled a ground-breaking new scheme to reward the growing number of parents who put down a on their children’s first home.

East will pay the interest which Mum and Dad would have earned on their savings at a highly competitive rate of five per cent – well above the Bank of England’s base rate.

The offer means that parents who want to help their offspring get on the first rung of the property ladder can do so without losing a penny of interest on their savings.

Under the scheme – which is appropriately called ‘Parent Power’ – Yorkshire East will pay five per cent interest per annum for a full five years on a deposit of up to 20 per cent. So if a parent puts down a maximum £24,000 deposit on a property costing £120,000, they will receive the equivalent of £1,200 a year in interest for five years. This is paid in a lump sum of £6,000 at the time of completion.

“The reality of high house prices is that a growing number of parents now put down a deposit to help their son or daughter to buy a property of their own,” said , Sales Director at Barratt Yorkshire East.

“But if that money is used to fund a deposit, it means that it isn’t in a high-interest savings account earning money for Mum and Dad.”

“This new scheme gets around that problem because you can pay a deposit on a new Barratt home for your children and we will pay you the interest you would have earned on the money.”

The offer is not restricted to mothers and fathers and is also available to other family members or friends who want to help a move into a home of their own.
