People looking to get their foot on the housing ladder are being invited to Barclays Bank on the Lynn High Street 
tomorrow, for a Help-to-Buy Clinic.

With house prices and mortgage lender deposit requirements consistently climbing, it’s no wonder that in recent years it has become almost impossible for many to get a foot on, or up, the property ladder.

If people want to purchase a home but can’t afford to buy on the open market, Help to Buy, a Government scheme created to help people take their first steps into home ownership, could be the solution. There are a number of different products within the scheme that are designed to make buying a home more affordable, including shared ownership and the Help to Buy equity loan scheme.

Hayley Roan, stakeholder manager for Help to Buy East and South East said: “There are some excellent schemes available to help first time buyers get that important first step on the ladder.

“We are delighted that we will also have developers available at our event so we can not only tell people about the various schemes but also show them what properties they could potentially buy using such a scheme.”

The Help to Buy clinic, which is supported by West Norfolk Council, takes place between 10am and 2pm.

The clinic is free to attend and no appointments are necessary. Just drop in for a chat.

William H Brown will be there on behalf of the borough council to promote the opportunities available on the current Nar Ouse Regeneration area project (NORA).

A Barclays Mortgage Adviser will be on hand to offer free advice on the available Woolwich mortgage products.
