If you need help to buy your own home

If you can't afford to buy a property on the open market, the Government has created the Help to Buy scheme to assist you towards taking your first steps on the property ladder.

Help to Buy includes several products not all of which are limited to first time buyers or restricted to new build properties:

  • Equity loans
  • Mortgage guarantee scheme
  • Affordable home ownership products including shared ownership, shared equity and discounted market sale

You will need to register for Equity loans or the Mortgage Guarantee scheme using the links above. Many developers across our district will offer these products on new build homes.
