Devina moved into her affordable rent flat within the Tingewick Road development in Buckingham in April 2021 and quickly settled in with her family. The two-bedroom flat houses her, her young son, and infant daughter and is now a busy family home, where her children have space to play and learn to walk!
She was new to the area, having previously been living with her mother and her children in Luton before moving to Buckingham. Moving to a new area was a little daunting but Devina has found Buckingham to be a friendly place.
The flat itself is within a brand new development on Tingewick Road in Buckingham. The scheme was a package deal built for Hightown by Taylor French Developments and produced 50 flats for affordable rent.
Devina was pleased to be moving into a newly built home and loves the clean and bright decoration throughout the property. She found applying to rent the flat straight forward and the letting process with Hightown was quick and efficient. Devina was grateful to have seen a video of the interior of the property before signing the lease since COVID restrictions were in place at the time and stopped her from viewing it in person.
She likes the area and has found her neighbours particularly helpful, with one of them lending her a hand to pick up a second-hand freezer for her since she doesn't have a car.
Devina told us that now she has a secure place to live she can think about returning to work as a nursery assistant when her daughter is a bit older. Devina adds:
"I'm so glad I moved here. The people are lovely and the area is great for children. It does feel like home."
