Last chance with help to buy at energy efficient West Sussex developments

With the Help to Buy deadline fast approaching, buyers can take advantage of the scheme for the last time at Dandara’s developments in West Sussex where a limited selection of energy efficient two and three bedroom homes and two bedroom apartments are available with the scheme.

The housebuilders Fontwell Meadows development on Fontwell Avenue, Fontwell and its Paddock View development on North End Road, Yapton are both selling fast, with many buyers acting to not only use Help to Buy but also make the most of the recently announced stamp duty cuts. 

The homes include a number of energy efficient measures including energy efficient light bulbs used where possible to reduce electricity consumption, energy efficient combi boilers, as well as bathrooms designed with water saving features and fittings which help save litres of water a day per person.

Thanks to these features, the homes benefit from a B EPC rating meaning buyers could save an average of £435 a year on energy bills, with the biggest savings on heating bills - which are on average 59% cheaper on a new build compared to existing homes.*

Nicki Dennis, Sales and Marketing Director at Dandara Southern, commented: “Help to Buy is a fantastic scheme which has helped record numbers of buyers onto the property ladder; it has always been popular since we launched both Fontwell Meadows and Paddock View but we’ve really seen a spike in enquiries in the last few months as first time buyers are trying to secure an energy efficient home before the scheme comes to an end. Buyers want to invest in a home that is future-proofed, the importance of which has never been so clear with the recent energy crisis – EPC ratings are now one of the first things our customers ask about.

“With the recent stamp duty cuts offering a substantial saving, now is a great time for any first time buyers in particular to get the ball rolling as soon as possible and take advantage of the stamp duty savings and Help to Buy before the end of the month.”

Dandara is currently selling its new homes at Fontwell Meadows in Fontwell where a collection of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes are available. Prices start from £260,000 for a two-bedroom apartment with allocated parking.

Dandara’s Paddock View development in Yapton is currently selling two and three bedroom homes with prices starting from £325,000 for a two bedroom terraced home with two parking spaces.
