Help to Buy hub

Written by:
Tips, comment and advice on the Help to Buy scheme, in association with Barratt Homes.

The hub, created in partnership with Your Mortgage, draws together news, tips, comment and advice on the government’s Help to Buy scheme.

The Help to Buy initiative was launched by Chancellor George Osborne in 2013 and aims to help people buy a home with a deposit as small as 5 per cent.

Whether you’re a first-time buyer or second stepper, we hope the hub will provide you with all the information you need to help you on your journey to purchasing the perfect property.

Barratt Homes highlights:

• An easy-to-follow infographic explaining the two different parts of the Help to Buy scheme.
• A two minute video highlighting the benefits of Help to Buy.
• A Help to Buy calculator showing you what properties are on the market based on your own financial situation.
