Your employer may offer this as part of your benefits package. You own the house with your employer jointly and the mortgage is set up in your joint names.
Key worker living
This scheme is designed to help people employed as ‘key workers’ to set up home or upgrade to a family home. We support the key worker living scheme for homebuyers.
Right to Buy
For council tenants who have the chance to buy their house at a discounted price, we can lend up to 100% of the discounted price.
Guarantor backed mortgages
Thinking of helping a family member buy their first home? You may be able to act as Guarantor for the mortgage, helping them take that first big step to independence. See our ‘Guarantors’ page for more information.
