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.
