A Sheffield couple have praised a scheme which has helped them to purchase their own home.
Steven Yuen, aged 27, and 25-year-old Serena Wong had thought home ownership was beyond their reach. However, after enquiring about new homes at Sheffield Housing Company’s Cutlers View development off Park Spring Drive, they were able to buy a three-bedroom house with an interest-free loan and a mortgage with a 5 per cent deposit. Mr Yuen said: “The help-to-buy scheme has not only helped us to get a foot on to the property ladder, we have also been able to save £200 per month compared to what we were paying in rent. We are really happy.”
