Housing

The ‘Forces Help to Buy’ Scheme is here to help all Armed Forces personnel get on the property ladder. Did you know the scheme enables all Servicemen and Servicewomen to borrow up to 50% of their salary, interest free, in order to buy their first home or move to another property on assignment! As long as you’ve completed the prerequisite length of Service, have more than 6 months left to Serve at the time you apply and meet all the required medical categories you are eligible to apply! The scheme has now extended to 2018, aiming to address the low rate of home ownership in the Armed Forces. We’ve put together a comprehensive list of property companies who support the scheme and will help you and your family get started on the property ladder.
