The Mohamed family are delighted to have finally found a place to call home
Ibrahim Mohamed, 42, a local probation officer and his wife Diane, 40, a full-time mum, have just moved into a brand new HomesHub home. They share their three-bedroom home with son Jamra, 6 and their 4-year-old daughter Kenza.
“We needed a proper family home. Where we were living just wasn’t suitable for our family. It wasn’t child friendly and there was no garden for the children to play outside. We were struggling to find anything suitable in the area. A couple of years ago we would have tried to buy but we just aren’t able to get a mortgage in the current financial climate,” explained Ibrahim.
The Mohamed family found the answer to their housing dilemma through HomesHub Rent to Buy at Northumberland Street.
“There is a massive need for this type of property. There are lots people like us who can’t buy but are struggling to get a decent, affordable home. This is the perfect scheme for us. The rent is reasonable but we also feel so much more secure than privately renting. We knew that HomesHub and Plus Dane were a good company and weren’t going to just sell the property or just throw us out for no reason. As long as we stick to the terms of the tenancy agreement we know that have a long-term home here,” said Diane.
“My favourite thing about the house is that it is just so well insulated; we only need the heating on for an hour in the morning then an hour at night and the house is warm all day. In fact the kids are sleeping in as they are so warm and cosy that they don’t wake up! Our previous home was really cold we had the heating on loads, but I can see we will save on bills this winter,” said Ibrahim.
The couple and their children are now enjoying making a family home here. Diane has loved buying new furniture for her home.
