About us

We are one of three agents appointed by the government to help provide Help to Buy schemes across England. We cover the Midlands and London.

What we do

Help to Buy is a government scheme (opens in a new window) providing a range of options designed to make it more affordable for you to buy a home. As a Help to Buy agent, our role is to:

  • help you understand the schemes
  • assess whether you are eligible to take part
  • do an initial assessment of affordability – to make sure you can comfortably cover any payments associated with your home purchase
  • guide you through the home buying process through Help to Buy.

We have the authority to give you the go-ahead to purchase a home with help from:

  • Help to Buy: Equity Loan
  • Shared Ownership
  • Home Ownership for People with Long-Term Disabilities (HOLD)
  • Older Peoples Shared Ownership (OPSO)
  • Rent to Buy
