Good Morning Britain Couple Get 'Help to Buy' Their Dream Home


The love story continues for Liverpool’s Kyle Dove (27) and his fiancée Mellissa Kellett (23) as they celebrate buying their first home together at The Avenue, NGV Liverpool, following Kyle’s infamous proposal on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

The soon to be newlyweds have just purchased a brand new three-bedroom home at The Avenue through Help to Buy, having fallen in love with the development almost as quickly as they fell for each other.

Civil engineering site manager Kyle commented: “For many people buying a house and getting engaged in the same year wouldn’t be possible, however the Help to Buy scheme has enabled us to tailor the process to suit our needs.

“We only needed a 5% deposit, but we wanted to use our savings to put down 15% instead, which meant that we didn’t need to borrow as much. Having that flexibility has enabled us to secure the best possible deal on our mortgage.”

“We’ve been amazed at how quick and stress-free the whole process has been and we’re now looking forward to spending our first Christmas together in our new home.

“Any nerves I had about buying our first home were soon put at ease by Countryside and didn’t come close to proposing live on TV. Hopefully the process of planning a wedding will run just as smoothly!”

 The Avenue at NGV Liverpool comprises of 170 detached and semi-detached homes, 110 of which are available through Help to Buy, a government backed scheme that requires just a 5% deposit. Prices at NGV Liverpool start at £139,950.

Conveniently situated close to the city centre, homes at NGV Liverpool have been intelligently designed to maximise light and space, providing the perfect balance between family life and modern convenience.

Peter Vella, Regional Sales and Marketing Director, Countryside, commented: “When we heard that Kyle and Melissa had chosen to start their new life together at NGV Liverpool we were thrilled. Their story is a great example of how Help To Buy is enabling younger buyers to escape the costly renting cycle and take those first steps onto the property ladder. We wish them all the best for the exciting times ahead at NGV Liverpool.”
