Homes deposit deal extended

David Wilson Homes has announced that it will be extending its 5% deposit contribution for current members and recent retirees from the Armed Forces throughout Shropshire.

The leading homebuilder started the scheme on the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE Day). Initially, the scheme was due to finish in the summer 2021, but a recent decision was made to extend it for the foreseeable future.

Dominic Harman, Managing Director of David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “David Wilson Homes’ Armed Forces Deposit Contribution scheme has already helped so many across the UK to buy their own homes.

“We want to continue to support Armed Forces personnel and give them the same opportunity, so we are happily extending this offer.”

The homebuilder has been supporting the Armed Forces throughout the last few years. It has a long-standing partnership with Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI), supporting the charity in confronting the challenges of veteran homelessness. The partnership delivers new homes, mental health support and jobs for ex Armed Forces personnel.

David Wilson Homes’ scheme works by offering Armed Forces a 5% deposit contribution up to £15,000. For example, if they were interested in a home costing £200,000, they would qualify for a contribution of £10,000. Those wishing to apply should speak to a Sales Adviser during an appointment, who can introduce applicants to a specialist New Homes Mortgage Adviser.

Not only will currently enlisted members of the Armed Forces be eligible for the deposit boost, but anyone set to retire from the forces this year will remain eligible for up to 12 months from the date they retire.

David Wilson Homes is currently building homes in Shropshire at The Grove at Doseley Park in Telford and Drayton Meadows in Market Drayton.
