Helping People to Buy and Rent

Wycombe is an expensive part of the country.  It is hard for people, but especially young people, to afford a place to rent or buy.   

Local schemes, like the Twenty 11 scheme, are helping people to live in affordable homes and offer rents, tenancies, and support that change with people’s circumstances and which encourage tenants to play a part in their community.

The biggest problem young people face getting on the housing ladder is the deposit. There are more than three million people, many with good jobs, who have been locked out of the mortgage market. Conservatives will encourage a new market in long-term fixed rate mortgages which slash the cost of deposits, opening up a secure path to home ownership for first-time buyers in all parts of the United Kingdom.

We will offer more homes to local families, enabling councils to use contributions from developers to discount homes by a third for local people who cannot otherwise afford to buy in their area.

Conservatives continue their commitment to Right to Buy for all council tenants, and the voluntary Right to Buy scheme agreed with housing associations. We will reform shared ownership, making it fairer and more transparent.
