Website launched by government for people who want to buy a home

New website brings home ownership schemes together including Right to Buy, Help to Buy and the Help to Buy: ISA available from 1 December

A homebuyers website has been launched by the government to help hard working people who are looking to own their own home:

According to the British Social Attitudes Survey, 86% of people have the ambition to own their own home, and the government aims to support them with a target of helping one million people into home ownership through government backed initiatives by 2020.

Since 2010, over 200,000 people across the UK have already benefitted from the government’s home buying initiatives, opening the door to home ownership.

Visitors to the government’s new website are able to quickly find the schemes that could help them by answering a few simple questions.
