Paul and I are teachers. We'd both re trained. Me from a degree in psychology. Paul had A ' Level's. We had our son after many years trying and spending quite a bit on IVF treatments and now we finally have a our Son but even with all the help the government has given we had found that buying our first home, especially getting a deposit had been out of our reach.
We simply spent so much money on starting our family that we couldn't afford a home for us. We were so happy when Help For Young Families stepped in to save the Day.
We qualified for the whole 5% and we were able to proceed with the purchase of our a leafy suburb three bedroom semi-detached home.
All we had to do was show we had a working income, meet the help-to-buy criteria and since we had a young family - youngest under 10, we qualified !
