A NEW shared ownership housing development is now on the market for property-hunters in Redditch.

Housing association Bromford has launched its new Mount Gate development of two-bedroom apartments, just off Ipsley Street.

The apartments are priced at £145,000 and feature an open plan kitchen diner with living space, two double bedrooms, bathroom and allocated parking spaces.

As a shared ownership development, homebuyers pay a mortgage on the share they own, and pay rent on the remaining share.

Bromford will contribute £500 towards legal fees on selected properties if reserved on or before Tuesday, August 31.

Claire Richardson, sales manager at Bromford said: “We are delighted to have released these excellent apartments for sale, which the team at Bromford have carefully designed to reflect the needs of local house-hunters, from first-time buyers to downsizers.

“Our legal fees deal also serves as a wonderful opportunity for those looking to make a quick reservation on an apartment with great charm."
