Five star housebuilder reminds armed forces personnel of schemes to help them secure their dream home

As people celebrate the work of servicemen and women during Armed Forces Day today (Saturday, June 24), David Wilson Homes and Barratt Homes are reminding people of their special offers and contributions for Armed Forces personnel.The leading developer understands the importance of having the perfect place to call home and is proud of its Armed Forces Deposit Contribution Scheme which offers army, navy and RAF employees a £500 contribution for every £25,000 on the cost of the new property they are buying, up to a maximum contribution of £5,000.As well as David Wilson Homes and Barratt Homes’ deposit contribution, Armed Forces members can also take advantage of the Forces Help to Buy Scheme which aims to make it easier for servicemen and women who are first-time buyers or those who need to move due to a change in circumstances, to purchase a new home with a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage.The scheme allows regular forces personnel to borrow their 5% deposit as a 10-year interest-free loan of up to 50% of their salary from the Ministry of Defence (MOD).This gives a necessary boost to then secure a 75% mortgage and a 20% Help to Buy equity loan funded by the government.This scheme is planned to run until 31st March 2018, so potential buyers are being urged to move quickly if they want to take advantage of it.

Paul Newman, managing director at Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East, said: “We’re very proud of the fantastic work our Armed Forces do and are pleased to be able to help servicemen and women in any way we can to find their perfect home.
