Buying with Moat again

Ashvine Park

Jurga, Daniel and their daughter had outgrown their terrace house in Chatham and wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the towns.

We were already in a Moat shared ownership house and couldn’t afford to buy on the open market for our next move. Shared ownership really was our only option – other than moving up north to cheaper property prices.

We looked at a couple of houses for shared ownership with other housing associations, but settled with Moat again as they were eager to help us find what we were looking for.

We settled on a 2-bed house at Ashvine Park that we reserved off-plan. It was a bit daunting buying off-plan but we had lived in a house already so could work out a rough furniture layout. 

There’s so much space and it’s peaceful and quiet. Exactly what we were looking for. We already know Canterbury very well so having the shops and restaurants on our doorstep is fantastic.

The resales officer Sam and Josh at Moat have been really accommodating and very friendly, which made all the difference when we were stressed and frustrated about our chain. We’ve only had a couple of issues with the new house and the defects team have been on it.

We love our new home. Our daughter goes into London for work once a week so having the train stations nearby is helpful. We’re lucky shared ownership gave us the opportunity to find a bigger house in a lovely neighbourhood.
