As the government launches its latest scheme to boost the market and protect lenders we ask what is NewBuy all about? And will it work?

What is NewBuy?

Do I qualify?

NewBuy is an initiative that sees mortgages underwritten by developers and the government.

The scheme does come with some restrictions. It is only available on flats and houses with a maximum value of £500,000 and is available in England only. It is however open to anyone buying a house who meets the aforementioned criteria and not just first-time buyers, making it different to previous government schemes which have largely been targeted at buyers seeking their first home.

How does it work? Since the credit crunch hit lenders have been more risk averse than ever. As such they want anyone purchasing a home to have a huge deposit so as to reduce the risk to themselves should anything go wrong. Of course, first-time buyers have struggled to come up with such large deposits thus leaving the market in something of a predicament. With NewBuy, the government and the housing developer underwrite the mortgage thereby reducing the risk to the lender. The developer pays the lender 3.5% of the property price while the government provides a guarantee of an additional 5.5% (the governments money will only be called upon if there is a market crash, in the meantime it is simply there as a guarantee.) This means the buyer can have a deposit as small as 5% of the property price and the lender knows if anything is to go wrong it is protected.

What if I can’t pay my mortgage? The guarantee provided by the government and the payment from the developer provides something of a safety net for lenders but buyers aren’t afforded the same protection. The buyer is still solely responsible for the NewBuy mortgage, just as with any other mortgage. If you were to lose your job or run into difficulty making your repayments you would need to contact your lender.

What’s great about it? Any scheme that allows more firsttime buyers to get onto the property ladder has got to be seen as a positive. The maximum loan size is extremely generous and the fact that NewBuy is not just restricted to firsttimers means it’s a great product.

Who is offering it? At the moment four lenders have committed to offering NewBuy; Barclays, NatWest, Nationwide and Santander – other lenders are set to sign up shortly. The developers that have currently signed up to offer NewBuy are Barratt, Bovis, Bellway, Linden Homes, Persimmon, Redrow and Taylor Wimpey.

What’s not? Some industry commentators have claimed house prices are still causing the bulk of the problem and that until they are brought down to a reasonable level the market will continue to suffer. The fact that the scheme is only available on new builds may also deter some would-be buyers.

X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X

UNDERWRITE DEFINITION: Underwriting means that someone (in this case the developer and the government) signs to accept liability like an insurance policy. They guarantee the lender payment in case of loss or damage.

HOT TOPIC

WHAT DO THE EXPERTS SAY? Housing minister Grant Shapps said: “We want to help everyone achieve their aspirations, and feel the pride of home ownership. So I'm delighted that from today the NewBuy Guarantee will give thousands of prospective buyers the chance to buy a home with a fraction of the deposit normally required.” Paul Smee, CML director general, said: “NewBuy mortgages will help creditworthy borrowers who

simply haven't yet managed to build up a large enough deposit to gain access to finance to buy a newly built home.” Stewart Baseley, executive chairman of the Home Builders Federation, said: “NewBuy will help thousands of people to meet their aspirations to buy a new home, freeing up the housing market and helping first time buyers and those unable to take the next step on the ladder.”

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE The latest scheme is a clear step in the right direction but what else could be done? We asked a selection of Liverpool estate agents what they think: PETER BELLAMY - director, Northwood (Liverpool South) “We think the new initiative is a great idea and obviously it shows that the government is trying to help move the housing market forward. However, it only helps a very small number. If the government want to make a wider impact on the housing market they should consider schemes that affect re-sale properties as well as new build. Extending the stamp duty holiday would help but by far the biggest impact would be schemes to encourage lenders to lend money more willingly. PAUL LEA - chairman, Venmore “In an ideal world, the NewBuy scheme would not only cover new build properties but stretch to any property that came onto the housing market. The cold reality, however, is that it doesn’t but the benefit of the scheme is that it’s not just for first-time buyers, like its predecessor FirstBuy, it is for anyone who does not have the required deposit whether they are second-time or even third-time buyers.” “Unfortunately, the lending market isn’t what it once was but schemes like NewBuy are in a position to help a great deal of people get onto the property ladder who would have been unable to otherwise.” STEVEN MCLOUGHLIN - branch manager, Andrew Louis (Prescot) The scheme is a step in the right direction, but only addresses a limited part of the market, to make a significant impact the government needs to put more pressure on the high street lenders to offer more affordable 90% mortgages only then will we see a significant improvement in the market.”

Countryside & Lloyds confirmed for First Time Buyers Show  With just a few weeks to go, the First Time Buyers Show 2012 is set to be the biggest event yet as two more big names have signed up to exhibit at the show. Countryside Properties has shown its dedication to helping first time buyers across the region by taking out a stand at the event – which takes place on April 21 at the Halliwell Jones stadium in Warrington. Lender Lloyds TSB has also also taken out a stand. Countryside and Lloyds join a host of other names representing the Merseyside property sector at the event including Lovell, Riverside Home Ownership and Rightmove. Peter Vella, regional sales and marketing director at Countryside, said: “The First Time Buyers Show is a great opportunity for Countryside Properties to engage

with one of the most important drivers of the property market – those making their first foray into the marketplace. We recognise that many first time buyers need help to get onto the property ladder and we have developed a portfolio of accommodation options to suit most budgets. Our services do not stop at simply finding the perfect property for first time buyers we can also help if meeting the full cost of a mortgage is proving difficult, our shared equity schemes help reduce the deposits needed from purchasers allowing them to look forward to a new home without the full cost of a mortgage. The event is being hosted by HomesHub, the governmentappointed affordable homes agent in the North West. With record numbers of tickets being downloaded for the show this year’s event looks set to be huge. Other names confirmed for the

show include Bovis Homes, Persimmon, Plus Dane, Faraday Mortgages and Paul Crowley Solicitors. With easy access from the M62 and good local transport links, the

event will open from 10am-4pm. Download your free ticket from www.firsttimebuyersshow.com. For more information contact Jo Tait on 0151 709 3871.

LLOYDS 'LENDS A HAND' TO LIVERPOOL BUYERS  Lloyds TSB and Liverpool City Council have joined forces to help first time buyers buy a home with a deposit of just 5%.

The Local Lend a Hand product will be available in local branches of Lloyds TSB from 22 March. Lloyds TSB worked with Sector Treasury

Lloyds TSB and Liverpool City Council

Services, part of the Capita Group, to develop the Local Lend a Hand product. The scheme enables borrowers to buy their first home with a deposit less than the 25

per cent required by most mortgage lenders. The fixed rate mortgage products that will be available during this scheme will also be at a lower rate of interest than would normally be available for this level of deposit. Liverpool City Council Leader, Councillor Joe Anderson, said: “We are very proud to be able to offer a helping hand to members of our community, who, without this initiative, would not have the opportunity to own their own home. We are hoping to help more than 200 first time buyers in Liverpool to become home owners.” Stephen Noakes, commercial director for

mortgages at Lloyds, added: "With the launch of Local Lend a Hand in Liverpool, we're making the housing market more accessible to more people. We know that many young people turn to the Bank of Mum and Dad to get their foot on the ladder, but that's not a solution for everyone. "Helping people to buy their first home is crucial in achieving and maintaining a sustainable housing market. Local Lend a Hand addresses some of the real problems that prospective buyers in Liverpool might face." For more information visit your local branch of Lloyds TSB. Your Move 43

VIRTUAL SERVICE AIMS TO HELP SMES  A new company is aiming to lighten the financial burden on small to medium-sized businesses nationwide by providing them with a virtual secretary and receptionist service. Keepoint is a virtual office suite. It offers four different virtual assistant packages including short-term holiday cover, diary management, bookkeeping, customer service and complaints handling. Director Jon Massie said: “First impressions count for any business, so being able to answer the phone to new or existing clients professionally during working hours is essential; this is expensive to do when hiring your own staff. What we have developed is a solution that offers a high level of customer service in a cost effective manner”. For more information visit www.keepoint.co.uk or call 08000 116635.

Paul Crowley raises the bar for law firms  Liverpool solicitors Paul Crowley & Co is celebrating after being awarded three prestigious accreditations this month. “We are extremely proud to have achieved these three accreditations in such a short space of time. It’s a huge achievement which very few

law firms in the UK can boast and I think it really raises the bar in terms of standards of excellence for other law firms in the city,” says Senior Partner Paul Crowley. The Solicitors were awarded Lexcel, the Law Society’s international Practice Management Standard accreditation which ensures the highest levels of

professionalism and customer care. The firm has also been accepted into the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), which is the highest recognised quality standard for residential conveyancers. Finally, the firm was recently awarded the Investors in People (IiP) standard for excellence in HR and people management. The news comes following the firm’s naming as Your Move’s Best Property Law Firm of the Year. Paul attributes the firm’s recent successful track record to its people-focused approach which he says puts both employees and clients at the centre of the organisation. Paul adds: “It’s a real tribute to the hard work and constant commitment of our entire staff team, and marks the continuations of a very successful year of growth for our firm, despite the challenges of a difficult economic climate.” Paul Crowley & Co Solicitors is an established legal firm with three offices based in the heart of communities in Merseyside, including two on Breck Road in Anfield and one on County Road in Walton.

HOMEOWNERS CAN SAVE HUNDREDS OF POUNDS WITH ENERGY SAVE  Energy Save Ltd is offering free solar panels to homeowners in Liverpool, which can help them save up to 30 to 50 per cent off their annual electricity bills. Installing solar panels on the average house would usually cost up to £8,000 but Energy Save Ltd is offering home-owners the chance to get the panels for free. Its investors will receive a 44 Your Move

return on the excess energy they sell back to the national grid. “The uptake for this has been phenomenal,” says Steve Tobin, managing director of Energy Save Ltd which is based in Wavertree. “We’ve currently got 100 advisors across the country signing people up. People are in effect renting their roof out but in return they get 25 years worth of free electricity in the daytime.” “Once installed it takes about two months to realise the

difference. People might have to change the way they do things a little. For example we advise people to use the washing machine during the day, when they won’t be charged for it,” says Wyn Hughes, energy advisor at Energy Save Ltd. There are some restrictions on who can get free solar panels, the property has to be your own home or if you are renting you need the permission of the landlord. You must have more than 20

square metres of space free on your roof and it must be south facing and free from overlooking trees. Energy Save Ltd also provides free loft and cavity insulation for home-owners, landlords and people on benefits. To talk about getting free solar panel, loft or cavity insulation please call Energy Save Ltd on 0151 203 2723.

Infinity has restored The Albany to its former glory in a multimillion pound refurbishment. Now Liverpool estate agent City Residential is delighted to be offering a range of apartments for sale and rent at the address.

iPad properties for Andrew Louis  Andrew Louis is the first estate agents in the city to use cutting edge iPad 3 technology to market its properties.

Andrew Williams

The Liverpool city centre estate agents will be using the brand new iPad 3’s when valuing properties to put a property’s information straight out on to the market. “From the seller’s doorstep to the systems, it will get the property out there at least a day earlier,” says Andrew Williams, new business manager at Andrew Louis. “This saves a lot of time as there will be no going back to the office or sorting a second appointment. The quicker it’s out there the quicker there is a chance of an offer.” They will use the new technology to show sellers comparable properties, complete a listing and perform all of the photography at the valuing of a property. This means that they can

generate an instruction straight away without the need to make a further appointment. The agent will use the new iPad to give a presentation of the way the company works and company procedures so that all information will be available to the seller instantly and will be completely up to date. “We will be the first agent in the city centre to introduce iPad���s at valuation,” says Andrew. “We want to show the company’s commitment to advancement in technology. We also want to improve customer service and standards in the industry.” The iPad 3 was released on 16 March.

Darren Carter

As the finishing touches are currently being put to its North John Street office, branch manager Darren Carter says the agents are already up and running, listing and letting a number of properties for clients. He says: “We're almost there in terms of the opening but we're already letting properties for clients – before we've even opened our doors. The message we want to get across is we are absolutely open for business and our team is perfectly placed to cater for your property needs.” With branches all over the UK, Reeds Rains already has several offices in the Merseyside area including Prescot, Crosby, Formby,Woolton and West Derby. It's brand new Liverpool office will primarily deal with the sale and letting of city centre apartments but will display property for clients across Merseyside.

MORECROFTS ACHIEVES 'QUALITY' STATUS

Leading auctioneer makes buying at auction easy  A North West property auctioneer is aiming to dispel the myths surround the auction process.

Julie Johnson

 Morecrofts Solicitors in Merseyside has secured membership to the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme - the mark of excellence for the home buying process. Conveyancing Quality Scheme - the mark of excellence for the home buying process. The law firm which is close to celebrating 200 years in business underwent rigorous assessment by the Law Society in order to secure CQS status. Practice Manager Julie Johnson said: “Morecrofts Solicitors is delighted to have secured CQS status. “It comes at a timely period of activity for us too following the launch of the Government’s NewBuy scheme that is designed to help overcome the deposit gap for new residential property purchasers. “We are well placed to advise new home buyers based upon our strong relationship with the home building industry and mortgage lenders who are working in partnership with the Government on NewBuy. Speaking further about Morecrofts’ new quality mark, Ms Johnson added: “Recognition of the high standards we provide to our residential property clients is a signal to future home-buyers of the excellent service level we provide at what is often a stressful time for many people.”

Kate Lay, head of residential at Pugh & Co auctioneers, says auctions can give the impression of being intimidating but with the right preparation and a little knowhow, buying a property at auction can be extremely profitable. “It also avoids all the usual lengthy purchasing procedures and the risk of everything falling through at the last minute,” adds Kate. “One solid piece of advice would be to make sure you do some research beforehand, register with an auctioneer and view the properties that you are interested in. Secondly, know what price

range you are willing to pay and can afford.” Kate says when you have spotted the property or properties for you, it’s time to think about legal and financial matters. Auctioneers should have a legal pack for you to read, which is simple to follow. You then just need to ensure you have a 10 per cent deposit with you or £2,000 (whichever is greater) on the auction day. The remaining 90 per cent is due within 28 days or you can arrange to have a mortgage in place. The Pugh & Co catalogue for the next wave of auctions in April has closed this week. The next Liverpool auction will take place at Aintree Racecourse at 2pm on April 25.

TALENT IN THE CITY

Toxteth born Tony Bellew is the British light-heavyweight boxing champion. Nicknamed ‘The Bomber’ because of his punching power he will defend his title at ‘The Big Bang’ at the Liverpool Echo Arena on 14 April. We caught up with him in-between training sessions to talk about broken hands, Nandos and ‘punching people in the head for a living.’

INTERVIEW BY KATE HANRATTY Your fight is coming up, how much training do you do in preparation? I train twice a day minimum so that is about six hours of training a day. I go for a 5.30am run and then I train at Rotunda ABC on Lambeth Road. How does it feel to fight in your hometown of Liverpool? There is no better buzz than fighting in your hometown, there are always loads of people there and I get tons of support. It’s flattering for me, people put me on a pedestal as a professional boxer but I’m just the same as anybody else. The only difference is that I punch people in the head for a living. It’s my job. My Liverpool fans make loads of noise and at times I can’t even hear myself think. To me it’s surreal. I think ‘why are they screaming and shouting for me?’ I think I get such great support because the fans can relate to me, they know I’m from a similar background to them and I’m the same as they are. I can only liken it to when I go the match and scream for the Everton players. What do you think about Liverpool as a city? Liverpool is one of the best cities you

could ever wish to go to. It’s full of good people and it’s got everything. You go to London and you have to travel 30 miles to go from one good place to another and in Liverpool it’s all close together. I love Liverpool I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. London is too big and too fast for me it just gets on my nerves, to be honest. Liverpool suits me down to the ground. You’ve got two little boys, how would you feel if they wanted to go into boxing? No, no, no. Corey’s six and Cobey’s three. I hate the idea of it. They’re both far too handsome for all that. They haven’t got my looks they’ve got their mothers. Corey is quite big for his age and he told me the other day that he wants to be a cage fighter but hopefully it’s just a phase. I’ll teach them the basics of boxing, they’ll be able to defend themselves, but I’m trying to steer them into other things, not boxing. What do you do on the day of a fight? I’ll sit and relax. We do a 10 week countdown to get into shape so for the last week before the fight I do nothing, it’s just about making sure I’m in great shape for the night. Should everything go right on the night, how will you celebrate? It always depends on my hands. I’ve broke my hands five times. So if they’re OK me and my missus will go and have a quiet drink or something to eat. I love Nandos, Viva Brazil and Bem Brasil and when I go there and I’m not

dieting in the run up to a fight I can make sure that I really get my money’s worth. What do you make of your opponent? Danny McIntosh is a former European champion. He is dangerous and he can punch, but I feel I’m better. I punch harder than him but It’s all about who is the better man on the night. He is dangerous and I’ll give him 100 per cent respect for that and 100 per cent of my attention on the night.

TABLE TALK

KATE HANRATTY HAS LUNCH WITH.... Anne-Marie O’Doherty, Field Sales Manager, Lovell.

‘L

iverpool’s best kept secret’ Ludus, recently opened on Bold Street. The laidback lounge bar offers a massive choice of 19 different cocktails, 12 different rums and 9 different whiskeys. Even for the very discerning Ludus will have something for you. Think of a 1950’s diner but a more upmarket version. The bar has black and white checkerboard flooring, clashing nicely with red sofas from which you have a vantage point on to busy Bold Street. An excellent spot for some people-watching. Flat screen TV’s tastefully built into the wall offer images of a roaring fire as the day winds on. Meeting with Anne-Marie O’Doherty, Lovell’s field sales manager we were impressed by what Ludus had to offer. Both on the same page, we order two steak and onion ciabattas with a side of hummus, pitta and olives. Even on a working lunch we can’t help but be tempted by the alcohol-free versions of Ludus’ extensive cocktail menu with names such as the Grateful Dead and Grey Goose Le Fizz. Lovell is known for affordable housing and creates sites which they sell directly to the public and to local housing associations. Anne-Marie co-manages a team of 15, setting up, marketing and selling homes across the North West and has 20 years experience in the industry. “People are happy at this point to be buying a new house that is affordable and Lovell gives them the opportunity to do this. We’re building and regenerating communities in the city. Most of the places we build in people are welcoming as they can see what we are trying to do. If we didn’t have schemes to help then people wouldn’t be able to buy,” says Anne-Marie. Lovell currently has local sites in Garston, Kensington, Tranmere and Rock Ferry on the Wirral.

LUDUS 108 BOLD STREET L1 4HY

Cuisine: Signatures slider burgers, upmarket sandwiches, salads and traditional fish ‘n’ chips. Book: No need to book just drop in. Parking: On Bold Street you’ll be lucky to find a spot. Watch out for those traffic wardens. Good for: Thrice cooked chips, cocktails and a relaxed atmosphere. Price: Thrice cooked chips £2.45, from £5.95 for sandwiches. Call 0151 709 6607 www.ludusbar.co.uk

Anne-Marie thinks that the recently announced NewBuy scheme could see a return to people being able to access the money they need to get on the property ladder. “The NewBuy scheme has generated a lot of interest so far. We’re just going through the process of introducing it. I do think it’s going to help.” The steak ciabattas come alongside chips in mini decorative deep fry pans complete with faux-newspaper pages. It’s a nice touch. The ‘thrice cooked’ chips tasted just as good as those from the best chip shop. It

“NewBuy scheme has generated a lot of interest”

seems that cooking them three times really does makes a difference. The sweet caramelised onions also compliment the 28 day mature steak. An average day’s work for Anne-Marie is very varied. After lunch she will be off to a site in Kensington to check on the progress of their show homes. “I go from studying the designs of houses to looking at different pieces of land for sites. Open plan living used to be really popular at one time but now it’s going back to people wanting more traditional separate kitchens and living rooms. We look at house types and the areas that people want them in. The market is changing all the time but the good thing about Lovell is that we get the

customer service right. There are more long-term Lovell projects coming up in the future for Manchester and Liverpool,” adds Anne-Marie. Before we left we were lucky enough to get a peek at the downstairs bar which is modelled on a 1920’s prohibition bar complete with chesterfields, wing backed armchairs and lush red velvet curtains. If you’ve been waiting for somewhere new to go in the city, Ludus is it. Latin for play, game and training it’s a place you don’t want to miss out on for food or a drink next time you’re on Bold Street. For more information on Lovell visit www.lovell.co.uk
