New homeowners share their story with you


A number of Thakeham new homeowners have used Help to Buy - you can read Natalie Harper's story here - she and her brother bought together in Peacehaven.

Nicky and Rhyan could not believe their luck when they bought a three bedroom new home at Valeside Keep - they didn't realise that Help to Buy could be used by existing homeowners. Click here to find out more.


Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or any other debt secured on it.
