TURNING RENTERS INTO BUYERS

At Barratt and David Wilson Homes, we have just launched a new scheme to turn renters into buyers. It works by helping people build the deposit they need to buy while allowing them to live in their dream new home.

The New Scheme: Rent then Buy

The new scheme, called Rent then Buy, allows qualifying first time buyers to put down just a 2.5% deposit, exchange contracts, and move into their new home straight away. It is being launched initially as a pilot in the Barratt and David Wilson Homes Southern Regions across the South East.

Using the scheme, buyers can spend six months renting their chosen new home while their monthly payments build their deposit up to 5%. At the end of the six month rental period, the money they have paid in rent is counted as being the remaining 2.5% of their deposit, and they can then draw down a 95% mortgage and complete the purchase of their new home.

Addressing Common Challenges for First Time Buyers

First time buyers often tell us they can’t save for a deposit because they are already paying “their landlord’s mortgage.” This is why we are launching Rent then Buy to solve that problem for FTBs. The scheme offers an innovative way to speed up the saving process, allowing homebuyers to get started on their new life in one of our beautiful new homes across the South East.

With saving for a deposit becoming increasingly difficult and with rents rising fast, Rent then Buy offers homebuyers a chance to seize the moment and lock in the home of their choice. Instead of paying private rent that eats up all their savings, they can put that money to good use as part of their deposit, all while they are enjoying living in their new home.
