Modern living in an historic city
Hamilton Gardens is a development of homes ideally located on the edge of Leicester, offering a quiet semi-rural atmosphere while also being a stone’s throw from one of England’s best cities.
The local area benefits from local amenities ideal for you to unwind and enjoy. The local area benefits from a choice of golf courses, health clubs and great cycle routes for you to get out and explore the countryside. For schooling, Leicester also has several nurseries as well as a selection of primary and secondary schools accessible from your new home.
Hamilton Gardens has excellent transport links. Its location on the edge of England’s central city means it is within easy reach of much of the rest of the country.
Leicester city centre is only a 20-minute drive away, and Hamilton itself is conveniently placed near Leicester’s A46 Ring Road, which offers easy access to the M1 and thus the rest of the UK.
Leicester is exceptionally well connected by rail. London is only one hour and 20 minutes away, and Leicester railway station also connects to Luton Airport, Loughborough, Sheffield and Nottingham. The East Midlands Airport is also nearby at Castle Donington and offers a range of internal and international flights
What is Shared Ownership?
Shared Ownership is an excellent way for people who are unable to buy on the open market to take their first step onto the property ladder. Under most Shared Ownership schemes, you buy a share of between 25% and 75% of the property’s value and pay a subsidised rent on the remaining share. A key advantage is that, as part-owner, you have a stability of
tenure that renting cannot offer. Over time, you can usually buy more of the property until you own 100%.
You will need a small deposit at the outset – generally a minimum of 5% of your share, subject to conditions – and you will need to raise a mortgage on the rest of the sum required.
Am I eligible?
There are certain conditions to be eligible for a Shared Ownership property:
• Your annual household income must be no more than £80,000 (for London boroughs this is £90,000).
• You must be unable to purchase a home suitable for your needs without assistance.
• In many cases, you must be able to demonstrate a connection to the local area of the development.
• You must not have any outstanding credit issues (i.E. Unsatisfied defaults or county court judgments).
• You must be a first-time buyer. If you already own a home and need to move but cannot afford to, or you have equity from a recent sale, please contact us, as there are some circumstances under which you may still be eligible.
If we think you may be eligible, you will be asked to have a free financial assessment with a Shared Ownership mortgage specialist to find out what share you can afford to buy. You will also be asked to complete an application form with the local Help to Buy agent. Sometimes you may need to be registered with your Local Authority. Specific criteria will be detailed on the information for each property.
