Buyers could be eligible for a 20 per cent discount on a home at Weston Homes’ 1023 West scheme just off London Road in Brentwood, Essex, subject to meeting certain criteria.

The 20 per cent discount is part of the Discount Market Sale (DMS) scheme where Weston Homes, working in partnership with Brentwood Borough Council, has a number of one-bedroom new apartments that are available to buy at just 80 per cent of their market value but still giving their buyer 100 per cent of the ownership. Buyers just need to live or work in one of the areas required for the scheme, and earn less than £90,000 per year.

1023 West is a development of 81 converted and newly built one- and two-bedroom apartments and three- and four-bedroom houses all with private outdoor space, located within attractive gardens and mature landscaped grounds.

The development has retained the original Georgian La Plata House, a Georgian manor-house formerly used as a Police Station which provides nine stylish one- and two-bedroom apartments.

First time buyer Alessandro Sottilaro, who has reserved an apartment with Weston Homes using the DMS scheme said: “I liked the Weston Homes apartments, but I initially thought that we could not afford one until I found the Discount Market Sale scheme which offers a 20% discount. By using the discount, we could afford a new apartment that is perfect for us.

We went directly to the showroom, met the sales consultants and within five minutes we wanted one of the homes and bought immediately. I love the fact that it is so fresh, modern and finished to such a high standard”.

Suzanne Aplin, group sales and marketing director at Weston Homes said: “The DMS scheme gives people a chance to buy and fully own outright one of our fantastic, all-inclusive private apartments at 1023 West but with a great 20 per cent discount.

“People sometimes think there are a lot of hoops you have to jump through to qualify for DMS, but the process is straight-forward and the scheme is designed to help buyers onto the property ladder and own their own home. Our fully inclusive specification means you can just move in and start enjoying the 1023 West lifestyle”.
