First Time Buyers
We helped Matt and Cat Bradford-Aunger take their first step on the property ladder.
The couple had put their plans to buy a house on hold because of wedding costs, vet bills and costly car repairs.
A few months later Cat’s father shared a newspaper clipping about our new Lend a Hand product. This led to a discussion about how the family could help them get onto the property ladder. After having initial conversations with us, Cat’s parents provided a deposit using some of their pension.
Less than two months later Matt and Cat were in a two-bedroom mid-terraced house with a garden, which they’re now mid-way through renovating.
We’re committed to lending ￡10bn to help people buy their first home in 2019.
As someone from a working class background, owning a home is such a huge milestone for me. Owning a house has always been a dream and without the Lend a Hand Team it wouldn't have been possible. They made the process seamless from start to finish and supported us through all the confusing obstacles we faced.
