Many people can't afford to buy a home on the open market but there are government-backed affordable home ownership schemes to help eligible people on to the property ladder.
Help to Buy North West is the Government’s Local Help to Buy Agent for Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire. It provides a one-stop shop for information and applications for affordable home ownership schemes across the scheme areas. These include the Help to Buy Equity Loan and Help to Buy Mortgage Guarantee Schemes.
Information on current schemes and the location of available affordable homes can be found on the Help to Buy North West website.
