How the scheme works

  2. Choose and reserve your new home.
  3. A Property Information Form will be completed and sent to the local HomeBuy Agent working on behalf of the Homes and Communities Agency, together with a copy of your reservation form.
  4. This form will be checked and an Authority to Proceed letter will be issued.
  5. Upon receipt of your Authority to Proceed letter, you will now be able to complete your full mortgage application.
  6. The legal process will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks to complete.
