An Expert View column by our Director Ian Lee has appeared in a prominent position on page three of the Portsmouth News' Homes guide.
In the column Ian, who is a twice former chairman of the Portsmouth Property Association (PPA) and a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), explains the latest developments in the Government's flagship Help to Buy initiative.
Newly released figures show that the Government’s Help to Buy initiative has helped more than one million people since its launch in 2012, writes our Director and Head of General Practice Ian Lee BSc FRICS.
Some 285,000 homeowners – the majority as first time buyers – have used one or more of the Help to Buy schemes, while 960,000 people have opened a Help to Buy ISA.
There are various elements to Help to Buy. They include the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme, which offers buyers up to 20% of a newly-built home’s costs so they only need to provide a 5% deposit.
