Buying a two-bedroom apartment with London Help to Buy at The Gateway, Chiswick, could save you over £500 a month, compared to renting a similar size apartment in the W4 area.
New figures reveal the average price of renting a two bedroom home in the West London postcode is £2072 pcm, compared to monthly repayments of just £1550 – including both mortgage repayments and service charge – when buying a two bedroom home worth £575,000 through London Help to Buy at the L&Q development.
Additionally, those currently letting a one bedroom home could save almost £200 per month by buying, with just a 5% deposit required when purchasing through the scheme – which offers buyers the opportunity to borrow up to 40% of the purchase price from the Government, resulting in a lower mortgage amount.
Cathy Lloyd, Sales and Customer Services Director for L&Q’s North Region, comments; “Raising a 10% deposit has always been an issue for those looking to purchase their first home, especially here in the capital, where the cost of renting is so high. To be able to own your own home in Chiswick and save up to £500 per month in outgoings at the same time is a great opportunity for those wanting to stay in the same area in which they rent.”
