James, a 42 year old logistics manager, and his wife Kathryn had been looking to move and reduce his commute of over 2 hours since starting his new job last August. With three children they had a number of requirements for their new home as they didn’t want to have to move again for as long as possible. James explains “the commute was taking so much time away from my family and adding extra costs every month. We were already looking to gain a bit more space since the new arrival, but my new job moved up the timeline quite a bit.”

James and Kathryn put a lot of time and energy into their property search, trying to find a new home that would meet their needs. James told us about their search “We had looked for about 4 months and hadn’t been able to find a property that met our needs and was affordable. We first heard about the Help to Buy scheme when looking around a show home and after finding out more about it, and checking we were eligible, we knew this was going to help us find our new family home. It only took us another week to find a property that we really loved and was now affordable, thanks to the Help to Buy scheme.”

James and Kathryn’s application when through quickly and they didn’t have to wait long to be approved, James explained, “we had a really good solicitor and financial advisor who dealt with everything for us. I don’t feel like it took any longer than last time we purchased a property. It’s a great scheme we couldn’t recommend enough.”
