Duchy Homes has opened up the opportunity for aspiring buyers to secure a dream home as the luxury house builder announces the introduction of Help to Buy on many of its developments.
Help to Buy, the government-backed equity loan scheme, can now help home buyers to purchase a Duchy Homes new build at Scawthorpe, Ranskill, or Bunbury, and will also be available on upcoming developments in Milton Green and Swanland.
As the scheme will contribute up to 20 per cent of the purchase price on homes up to the value of £600,000, (subject to eligibility criteria being met), this means buyers who previously could not achieve a premium-quality Duchy home may now be able to realise their dream.
Available on a variety of current plots ranging from two-bedroom executive apartments in Cheshire priced from £340,000 to three, four and five5-bedroom detached homes across Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and the North West, buyers could secure a new home from this award-winning luxury builder with only a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage.
Help to Buy was set up to contribute to economic growth by helping communities to realise their aspirations for prosperity, and Duchy Homes’ launch of the scheme aims to help not only first-time buyers to purchase their first home, but also to support existing homeowners looking to upsize to a new property.
With the UK showing a growing demand for high-quality new homes, Duchy Homes is proud to now be able to offer its signature new builds to a wider group of home owners who can enjoy contemporary living and luxurious design built with premium materials, fixtures and fittings.

Duchy Homes is a multi-award-winning house builder and has been honoured with many prestigious awards year-on-year from the National House Building Council (NHBC) in both quality and health and safety. Its repeated triumph marks its ongoing commitment to achieve the highest standards in housebuilding and to deliver excellence as standard.
