Help to Buy
Help to Buy is a government scheme which helps people to get on or move up the property ladder. As rising house prices mean a continued struggle when it comes to raising a deposit, the government has also introduced variations on the same theme. This includes Help to Buy London and the Help to Buy ISA. You can find everything you need at our hub page.
