Homes handed over to Hailsham's newest residents

Ambersey Green development sets sights on helping Hailsham's first-time buyers.

Latimer, the development arm of Clarion, the UK’s largest housing association, has announced it has reached a major milestone at its Hailsham development, with first homes completed and keys handed over to the town’s newest residents this week.

Buyers of new homes at Ambersey Green, the 110 home scheme off Amberstone Road, will be able to move in on Monday 16 September.

With fittings and high-spec appliances included as standard, the development, which comprises of two, three, four and five-bed homes, is aimed at first-time buyers making their first steps to home ownership and young families looking for high-quality builds in open green space.

Sam Truman, Latimer’s sales manager comments: “This is a major milestone for the scheme. It’s been fantastic to watch the first phase of the development take shape over the past few months and we’re looking forward to seeing the new residents move in to their homes next week.

“Ambersey Green, like all Latimer schemes, has been designed with the long-term sustainability of the community in mind. By offering high-spec homes with transparent pricing, we hope many first-time buyers will be able to put down roots in Hailsham who might have previously felt alienated from home ownership in the South East.

“Across the country, Latimer is dedicated to increasing the pipeline of new-build homes to help fix the country’s housing crisis, but more locally, we’re committed to helping first-time buyers in particular get a foothold on the Hailsham property ladder.” 

Latimer is also inviting prospective homebuyers from the local area to attend a ‘Moving Made Easy’ event on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September, where people will be able to receive free advice on the Assisted Move and Help To Buy schemes.

Through the Assisted Move scheme, Latimer will handle the process of selling the existing property as well as paying the estate agent fees on completion.

People will also be able to learn about the government’s Help to Buy scheme, which allows buyers to purchase a new home with just a five per cent deposit.

Sam added: “The Assisted Move and Help to Buy schemes are designed to make the process of buying a house as easy and stress-free as possible. But many are unaware of how the schemes work or how they can benefit.

“We’re hoping to spread the word to local people about the options available to them and the event will be a fantastic chance for any buyer to discuss what they’re looking for with an experienced property expert.
