Details

In 2015, the department commissioned an external evaluation of the Help to Buy equity loan scheme. The research produced a robust assessment of the ‘additionality’ (see below) of the scheme, and provided evidence of the experiences and implementation of the scheme from the perspective of both providers and consumers.

Additionality: identifying the increase in the production of housing services (either through a greater number of new homes built or through a production of bigger homes) as a result of the policy, over and above what would have been produced in its absence.
