Discover August Fields
Built upon a bronze age fort at the mouth of the River Ouse, with a strong maritime history, the harbour town of Newhaven may be small but still delivers on location. Nestled between the South Downs and the south coast, less than 10 miles east of Brighton, Newhaven offers you the chance to live close to the coast, countryside and city.
With its cross-channel ferry service, port and marina, Newhaven will appeal to anyone who dreams to be at sea. Newhaven Fort is a local attraction, but there are plenty of nearby sights to explore including Paradise Park botanical gardens and Seven Sisters Cliffs. Stay local for beach …
Help to Buy is an equity loan scheme to help you buy a new home. If you have a 5% deposit and can cover 75% of the value of the home with a mortgage (or 55% in London), the Government will lend you up to the remaining 20% (40% in London) in the form of an equity loan that carries 0% interest in the first 5 years. This is available on a variety of new-build properties for first time buyers and is subject to the property price, the subsequent price cap in that region and the developer offering the option.

The rules for shared ownership are different to a private purchase. In short, as long as you don’t currently own, or won’t own another property when you move in to a new home, you’re likely to qualify. Help to Buy is available to first time buyers only and the property value itself must fall below a price threshold for that specific area which varies in terms of the average house price in the region.
