Countrywide comment on the launch of the Government's FirstBuy Direct scheme


Monday, June 20, 2011

Commenting on the Government's new FirstBuy Direct Scheme, Grenville Turner, Chief Executive of Countrywide, the UK's largest Property Services Group said;

"We are pleased that the government is moving quickly with the launch of this initiative. We believe that this will give a much needed boost to the first time buyer market and also underpin the New Build/Developer market which has experienced difficulty over the last three years.

"However, in order to ensure that this initiative delivers, the government, developers and fellow mortgage and estate agency intermediaries will need to work together to advise buyers and ensure that they fully understand the benefits of this scheme.

"At Countrywide, we are fully committed and support this initiative and are already actively working with developers on the sale of new homes across the country through our 1300 estate agency and lettings offices. We have also recently launched a specialist national network of mortgage consultants focusing on new build financial services, who will be able to assist with the mortgage financing of properties within this specialist scheme."

Countrywide have launched a dedicated advice line for this scheme. Those wishing to discuss their the Firstbuy Direct scheme can contact us on 0800 158 3938 Monday to Friday and 0800 206 1366 on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
