WhatHouse? Award-winning developer Lovell Homes hosted a Summer Family Fun Day event at its Royal Victoria Court development in Newport. 

The event was designed to share information and advice on mortgages and Help to Buy Wales, and prospective buyers and existing residents also had the chance to meet Leo the llama and his alpaca pals.

Royal Victoria Court is located off Cardiff Road, on the site of the former Whiteheads steelworks, and consists of a collection of 264 two-, three- and four-bedroom houses and one- and two-bedroom apartments.

At the event, Leo the llama and his alpaca pals, baby Nigel and Trifle, were present to welcome prospective buyers to the development and entertain the children, while their parents met with the Lovell sales team and independent mortgage advisors from ABP Mortgages, to receive free, impartial advice on all things mortgages and Help to Buy Wales.

Suzie Hewitt, regional sales director at Lovell Homes, says: “Although the weather wasn’t great, It was wonderful to see the Family Fun Day event be as successful as it was. Leo the llama, baby Nigel and Trifle were fantastic, and we are delighted to have provided our current and future customers with such a memorable experience. At Lovell Homes, we put great care into the design and build of our properties to make sure that future residents can be proud to call them home. We would encourage anyone who is interested in a home in the Newport area to get in touch as soon as possible.”

Help to Buy Wales is available on properties up to £300,000, meaning that a selection of two- and three-bedroom homes at Royal Victoria Court are eligible. The scheme enables buyers to purchase a new build property with just a 5% deposit, and the remainder is made up from a 75% mortgage and a 20% equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years.

Royal Victoria Court is being delivered by Lovell in partnership with Tirion Homes and with support from Welsh Government. The development will consist of 528 properties, including 264 open market sale homes and 234 affordable homes for rent with Tirion Homes, alongside an additional 30 properties for low-cost home ownership through Melin Homes.

Royal Victoria Court is now open seven days a week, 10am to 5pm. Prices at the development start from £172,000.
