Since 2010 over 563,000 households with help from government-backed affordable housing schemes have gained the stability, opportunity and security that comes from buying a home.
Our plans include:
- a new Help to Buy: ISA from December 2015 to help first-time buyers save for a deposit faster
- the Starter Homes scheme that will offer a 20% discount for first-time buyers
- extending the Right to Buy to more housing association tenants.
