Serving Armed Forces personnel take priority in all our government funded schemes such asHelp to Buy andShared Ownership.

If you purchase a home through Help to Buy, sub-letting of the home is allowed by a serving member of the Armed Forces whose tour of duty requires them to serve away from the area in which they live for a fixed period.

If you are a serving member of the British Armed Forces, or have been honourably discharged in the last 2 years, then you will receive priority for buying a home through Shared Ownership.

Alternatively, you can try theForces Help to Buy Schemewhich is specifically for Armed Forces personnel. This scheme allows you to borrow up to 50% of your salary, interest free, to buy your first home, move to another property on assignment or as your family’s needs change.
