When Neighbours Become Good Friends at Mayfield Park

When Sundar (38) & Priya (37) Ganesh and their nine year old daughter, Lakshana moved into their four bedroom house at Mayfield Park, in Carshalton Beeches with Bellway Homes’ Help to Buy scheme, they were so delighted that they recommended the house next door to their old neighbours, to be reunited again.

Sundar explains, “My wife and I were renting an apartment in Croydon for six years when we decided to purchase our first home in Carshalton Beeches. Our daughter really wanted to continue her education locally, and we ideally wanted her to be in the catchment area of Sutton Borough for her next steps. We viewed pictures and the plans of the four bedroom home we desired and put the deposit down there and then with aid from the Help to Buy scheme. We were very happy that the whole process took less than four months, it went by so smoothly.”

“Our rent used to be £1,150 a month, but now we are paying slightly above our usual rent, which is great as all that money is going straight to our mortgage so nothing is wasted. We also always wanted a new build, as we feel the quality and size is far better than a second hand property. All the maintenance and finishing is done, it looks like a show home, I won’t need to do anything to the house for at least another 10 years!”

“We are so delighted with our Bellway home that we have recommended the properties to our neighbours back in Croydon, and they are now moving in next door and we couldn’t be more excited. My daughter will have her best friend back and we can enjoy our lives together in our brand new homes. We are organising a party for our families and we can’t wait to invite our close friends and neighbours over too.”
