Here is how Help to Buy is changing real people’s lives for the better

James Griffiths

Homes By Esh are delighted to share one of their happy customers experience of purchasing their first home using the Help to Buy Equity Loan!


James Griffiths, a 26-year-old electrical engineer, is enjoying life as a homeowner in his very first property, located at the Scholars Park development in Darlington with the assistance of Help to Buy.

Using the Help to Buy Equity Loan, James was able to purchase a stunning 4-bedroom new build home with fantastic connections to Darlington town centre. His determination to be a homeowner pushed James to explore options like the Help to Buy scheme, allowing him to secure his dream property with just a 5% deposit.

It is clear that James could not be happier with the result:

“The open plan layout of the property was just what I was looking for. Modern living is all about that spacious kitchen and living area being the hub of the home and the bi-fold doors into the garden are the perfect finishing touch. It is a real standout feature of an already well-designed and considered property."

“I’m delighted to be able to call this my home!”

Scholars Park is a large development from Homes By Esh, consisting of sixty 2, 3 and 4-bedroom properties in Darlington. Help to Buy is available on all sixty properties.

Colin Willetts, deputy managing director at Homes By Esh, commented on the success of the Help to Buy scheme, saying:

“From downsizers to first time buyers, we have been fortunate to help a number of homeowners purchase their dream home through our part exchange and Help to Buy schemes.” 

So whether you are a first-time buyer looking for your ideal first home, or a current homeowner wanting to make a move, you could benefit from exploring the options available through Help to Buy.

The help to Buy Equity Loan is a scheme designed to help you buy a new build home up to the value of £600,000. An equity loan between 10-20% is available to make your purchase more affordable, and you will only need a 5% deposit.
