Ben Harrison and his partner Karen French who both work as freelance musicians, had been renting in Ealing for the last eight years, and were keen to stay in west London. Eager to purchase their first home together they were aware that they would need the Government’s Help to Buy scheme to assist them with their initial step onto the ladder. After discovering Brentford Lock West online, they were keen to investigate whether they really could afford to purchase such an impressive, highly specified apartment which offered its own private balcony and a direct water view.
After meeting with the sales team on site and exploring the local area, the couple are delighted to have just secured themselves a one bedroom, water facing apartment at Brentford Lock West. Ben Harrison commented: “To be situated directly on the water and with our own balcony, overlooking the canal, is like a dream come true – we never imagined we would be able to afford such a great first home. Help to Buy has proved a lifeline for us, helping us to finally get out of rented and into our very own home.”
As they settle into their new home, avid football fans Rhys and Anna still can’t believe they have managed to score themselves a brand new home in their beloved Brentford.
As season ticket holders at Brentford FC and after having rented in the area for over six years, Rhys Williams and his partner Anna Mason dreamed of owning their own home in Brentford. However, it wasn’t until the couple came across Brentford Lock West and became aware of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, that this dream became a reality for them.
Rhys Williams commented: “I have a strong affiliation with Brentford and after having rented in the area for such a long time, we were really keen to stay here and to stay close to friends. However, we really didn’t think we’d be able to afford anything here. The Help to Buy scheme has meant that we have a stunning new home, right on the canal and we couldn’t be happier.
We have a huge terrace and we are just a short stroll from some great parks and outside spaces – it’s such a great location.”
