Your local Help to Buy agent can guide you through the options available and explain the eligibility and affordability criteria. Help to Buy agents are appointed by the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency.
Help to Buy agents administer the Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme, with responsibility for providing authority to proceed for people purchasing a home with assistance from this scheme.
