Father and daughter secure home through joint ownership

Posted 23 March 2016 by Helen Christie

Like thousands of parents, a Pershore father recognised the difficulties in the younger generation getting on the property ladder, so he decided to opt for a joint home ownership with his daughter.

Robin Turner, (47) and his daughter Kirstie (24) were the first customers to move into the Persimmon Homes Wyre Meadows development and believe buying together made complete financial sense, plus it is a way to help his daughter get on the property ladder.

“Joint ownership was the perfect solution for us as we were both looking at buying, but for the partnership to work it needed to be the right property,” explains Robin.

“I had previously rented in Evesham, but worked in Pershore. We both really liked the location so, as soon as I saw the Persimmon signs, we were keen to look at the properties."

Robin and Kirstie opted for the three-bedroom Clayton house type for its spacious interior, enabling them to each feel they had their own private space, while still living together.

“The property was a timber frame construction and, being a joiner, I was very keen to watch as much of the construction as I could,” says Robin. “I was very pleased with the build quality and we have found the property to be very warm.” 

All properties at Wyre Meadows use the company’s Space4 technology which features timber frame construction. The development offers a collection of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes in a selection of eleven different house designs, all finished to the highest specification. 

Robin adds: “We used the Help to Buy scheme to make the purchase and I feel the joint ownership is also helping Kirstie to get on the property ladder.

“I believe it’s been a good investment to buy a well-built house in a desirable location. And as property prices increase over the coming years, my daughter will be able to use the property’s capital to purchase a home on her own in the future.”

Carol Selway, head of sales at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, says: “We believe homes should be sustainable by being inherently efficient in their design and construction and the timber frame construction addresses this: “This method of construction helps reduce possible delays in the build due to any adverse weather conditions and provides customers with a consistent build quality.

“We are delighted that Robin and Kirstie have chosen a property at Wyre Meadows. This development has generated a lot of interest, which we believe is due to its picturesque location and quality build. By the end of construction Wyre Meadows will feature a new community of 260 homes.”
