A SCHEME for people trying to get on the property ladder has already helped 102 people in North West Leicestershire buy their first home this year.
‘Help to Buy’ was set up in 2013, and has helped 27,000 people across the UK to be granted a mortgage so far by offering incentives such as a five per cent deposit.
Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire said that due to a collapse in house building, hardworking people found it nearly impossible to buy their own home.
He said: “That’s why the Conservatives, as part of our long-term economic plan, launched Help to Buy so that more people could get an affordable mortgage and get on the housing ladder.
“Now, even more families have been able to achieve their dream of owning their own home and can now enjoy greater financial security allowing them to plan for their future.”
