What is the Own New Scheme?

Own New is a collaboration between lenders and the housebuilder that offers a range of incentives to make buying a new build property more accessible, including: 

  • Reduced deposits - The scheme allows you to purchase a new home, such as one of our sustainable properties at Lawnswood, with a deposit as low as 5%. This significantly reduces the upfront financial burden compared to alternative and more traditional mortgage deposits. 
  • Competitive mortgage rates - Own New, gives you access to exclusive mortgage deals with participating lenders. These often come with appealing interest rates, making your monthly repayments more manageable. 

How does Own New work with Cameron Homes?

We are proud to be part of the Own New scheme to help both first-time buyers and existing homeowners join and move on the property ladder. 

Here is how you can benefit:

  • Streamlined process - Our friendly sales team will guide you through the scheme's application process, working closely with you to find your perfect new build home at one of our developments and a mortgage option that fits your needs. 
  • Lowered deposit - With a required deposit as low as 5%, and potentially lower interest rates, the Own New scheme can make buying your dream home much more achievable, giving you the flexibility to put more money towards the finishing touches of your new property.
  • Reduced monthly payments - Own New can help you secure a mortgage with an interest rate starting at just 0.99% for a two-year fixed-rate mortgage, with a 60% loan to value (LTV). Therefore, this significantly reduces your monthly repayments compared to standard mortgage options.
