Who needs the bank of mum and dad anyway!

First time buyers make savings at Able Quay Millharbour with leading developer Notting Hill Genesis.

Editorial Team | 10th December, 2020

The Bank of Mum and Dad has been a driving force behind many first-time buyers finding their way onto the property ladder in the capital. 24% of buyers have looked to their parents for financial assistance since the Coronavirus pandemic took hold this year, and a third (33%) of those likely to buy in the next five years have revealed the only way this will be achievable is by using funds gifted by family and friends. However those seeking a self-sufficient way of buying a home in London, should look to leading developer Notting Hill Genesis’ new collection of two-bedroom apartments available through Shared Ownership at Able Quay Millharbour. Located within one of London’s premier districts, buyers can not only secure a new home with a low deposit, but could also save themselves a further £3,858 by taking advantage of Notting Hill Genesis’ exclusive offer to pay the first three months’ rent and service charge!

James Munson, Head of Marketing for Notting Hill Genesis comments: “Whilst parents can be a welcome source of financial help, independent homeownership aspirations, especially among first time buyers, should be encouraged and supported wherever possible, and at Notting Hill Genesis, we do just that. Shared Ownership creates the option to buy a home more affordably with a lower level deposit, and our offer of paying the rent and service charge for the first three months at Able Quay Millharbour provides a further saving that buyers could put toward furnishing their new home – or, at this time of year, help ease the cost of Christmas.”
