Home-ownership schemes

Home-ownership schemes are designed to help people who cannot afford a high-street mortgage to buy a home. By reducing the size of your deposit, they allow you to qualify for a larger mortgage at a better rate.

Help to Buy

Several schemes are operated by the Government, please see the links below for more information.

Warning signCoronavirus (COVID-19): We continue to provide services online and via telephone. However, we recognise that, in some cases, you will need an appointment with an officer so we offer limited pre-booked appointments at the Forum for urgent enquiries. You may experience longer waiting times or an online response due to increased demand on our services. Please call 01442 228000 and ask for the service you require. For council service updates and other advice, please see our COVID-19 page×
