New homes at Liberty Place on Knowsley Road are available on a shared ownership basis, which gives people the chance to part-own a home and pay a reasonable rent on the other portion.

Now, getting on the property ladder at the stylish Liberty Place development has never been easier thanks to new lower prices.

One-bedroom apartments are now available for just £30,000 for a 50% share, with monthly rent of £68.75 on the other half.

Two-bedroom apartments are available priced at £35,000 for 50% with a monthly rent of £80.21.

Two-bed duplex apartments are now on offer for just £42,500 for a 50% share, with a monthly rent of £97.40.

Shared ownership is an ideal way to get onto the property ladder by purchasing a share in a property without overstretching yourself financially. When buying a share in a property your deposit will be paid on the share you are purchasing rather than the outright value, making the deposit more achievable for more people who would normally be priced out of the market. You can increase the share you own in the property – and even own it outright – at any time after your initial purchase.

David Taylor, lettings and marketing manager at Helena Living, said: “Liberty Place is a fantastic development of apartments and houses in a desirable area.”

An open day will be held on Saturday, September 18, from 10am to 4pm. For more details or to arrange a viewing call 01744 671555.
