Government reform to shared ownership - Comment

28 August 2019

Commenting on today’s announcement by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Robert Jenrick MP, Tim Beale the Chief Executive Officer of Keepmoat Homes said:

“As a leading homebuilder for first time buyers we’re passionate about helping people to own their home and we welcome today’s announcement by the Secretary of State, Robert Jenrick MP, regarding a package of measures to help people on lower incomes get onto the housing ladder.

“Recently we conducted some national research which highlighted the importance of initiatives such as Help to Buy and Shared Ownership in supporting people to buy their first home and I’m sure that the details announced today; which include reviewing a new national shared ownership model and changes to the Help to Buy scheme; will help support even more people to discover the joy and freedom of home ownership.

“The challenge now for us as home builders, working alongside our partners and the Government is to raise awareness of the support that is available and show that home ownership is not a pipe dream.”
