Details

In 2015, the department commissioned an external evaluation of the Help to Buy equity loan scheme with the principal aim of establishing the ‘additionality’ of the scheme: the number of new homes built in addition to what would have been built in the absence of the policy.

The 2017 study provides an updated evaluation of the Help to Buy equity loan scheme with the principal aim to provide a comprehensive evidence base focussed on the additionality of the scheme – covering both demand and supply additionality.
