Julie finds her home for life in North Devon thanks to shared ownership

Julie wanted to move back to the small village of Landkey but thought she couldn't afford it. Thanks to shared ownership she is now part of the community again that she loves.

Julie Brooks and her daughter dreamed of being part of their former community in Landkey, Devon but had been priced out of buying in the village. That was until our new development in Landkey presented her with an opportunity to set up home there again and she jumped at the chance at buying a shared ownership home there.

"It’s hard to put into words how much our move back to the village we lived in for almost 10 years has changed our lives.

''My 12-year-old daughter and I are back within the community and she has her friends around her once again.

''I’ve joined the local running club and will be taking part in the village pub quiz night next!

''I found LiveWest homes in the village online and realised this was my opportunity to move. I contacted LiveWest the next day. They gave me all the information I needed and arranged a viewing. The house was perfect and has beautiful views,  they are stunning, a real bonus!

''I am so lucky and have a home for life and the chance to buy more shares in it when the time is right.

''I couldn’t have moved to this village again with the premium prices of homes but the shared ownership scheme enabled me to. 

''We are so happy here, far more than I could ever have imagined, thank you so much to everyone who helped."
