Waterside Living In Southampton Proves Popular For Forces

Off By Ed Hanna

Looking to buy a house? Whether you’re looking to set up a home base between your military duties or you’re ready to embrace full civilian life, Crest Nicholson has a range of two-bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments that you could be calling your own. Centenary Quay in Southampton offers generous apartments set in a prime waterside location with pristine views, which has already proved popular among military buyers.

Forces Help to Buy

The government Help to Buy* scheme is designed to assist those looking to take a step on or up the property ladder and there is a dedicated version for members of the Armed Forces. Those with at least six months left to serve may be eligible to apply for the Forces Help to Buy scheme when buying a brand new home. All regular armed forces personnel that have completed the pre-requisite length of service and meet certain medical requirements are eligible for the support.

How does it work?

The scheme allows all armed forces personnel to borrow up to 50% of their salary, to a maximum of £25,000 on an interest-free loan to support the purchase of a new home. The loan can be put towards a deposit, estate agent and/or solicitor fees. It can be used to buy a first home or take the next step up the property ladder.

Don’t miss out!

Don’t be left behind, Forces Help to Buy is only available until 31st December this year!

Pop by the Centenary Quay Sales & Marketing Suite and talk with a friendly member of staff about how you can make your dream of home ownership a reality.

An amazing waterside development just minutes from the centre of Southampton that has proven particularly popular with buyers, in part thanks to its excellent transport links and proximity to the Portsmouth Navy Base.

Centenary Quay residents can also enjoy a brand new 24-hour Snap Fitness gym, Mettricks coffee shop and Vivid Beauty on their doorstep, while a brand new sports bar is set to open soon. Within easy reach of the city centre, there are a host of other activities available nearby such as a riverside walking track.
