Persimmon Homes

Armed Forces/ Key Worker Discount

If you're a key worker or member of the armed forces you could get a £500 discount for every £25,000 you spend on a new Persimmon home.

How does it work? 

Using our Armed Forces/Key Worker discount, for every £25,000 you spend towards the value of a Persimmon home, we can give you a discount of £500, up to a maximum discount of £25,000. 


For example, if the home you wanted to purchase was £250,000, we could offer you a discount of £5,000, since £250,000 divided by £25,000 is 10. This would mean your £250,000 would be discounted to £245,000. 

If you're eligible for the scheme and would like to know more, speak to the sales team at your chosen development who will be able to put you in touch with a specialist New Homes Mortgage Advisor.
