The Help to Buy scheme gives people on all stages of the property ladder the opportunity to purchase a new home with a deposit of just five per cent.
Under the scheme, the Government will lend up to 20 per cent of the value of the property through an equity loan.

Available on properties up to the value of £600,000 the scheme is a great opportunity for all types of house hunter wanting to own a new home at this iconic development.
