Schemes to help people get on the property ladder

Buying your first home should be an exciting time. We work with you, offering advice and support every step of the way.

How we can help

Stepping onto the property ladder as a first-time buyer can be both exciting and daunting. At Freers Askew Bunting, we're here to provide clarity during this new chapter of your life. Our experienced team has successfully supported countless first-time buyers in realising their dream of homeownership.

First-time buyer schemes have been designed to make this dream more attainable. Such schemes can provide financial boosts, like reduced deposit requirements or shared ownership options. However, while these schemes can be beneficial, it's crucial to fully understand them to make the most of the support available.

Each scheme comes with its set of criteria and benefits. For instance, while some might offer a helping hand with deposits, others might present shared ownership opportunities, where you buy a part of the property and rent the remainder. Knowing which scheme best suits your financial situation and long-term goals can make all the difference.

The options can feel overwhelming, but you're not alone. Our team is committed to shedding light on each available scheme, breaking down their specifics in understandable terms. We guide you through the entire process, ensuring paperwork is precise and deadlines are met.
