A Help 2 Own Success Story
Kirsty, 23 and Michael, 26, have recently been successful in acquiring a property with the help of the Help 2 Own scheme.
Where were you both living previously?
Kirsty: I was living with my parents in Pontnewydd
Michael: I had recently finished university and returned home to live with my parents.
How long do you think it would have taken you to purchase a property without the aid of Help 2 Own?
Both: At least 5 years!
How did you find the whole process?
Michael: It was really easy from start to finish
Kirsty: Yes, I agree, it was really easy and straightforward from the time we joined to the time we purchased the property.
From your involvement in the process can you let us know what your positive and negative experiences of the scheme have been?
Both: Positives- it helps young people like us access the housing market! Negatives- we cannot think of anything negative about the scheme!
Would you recommend the scheme to others?
Both- Yes, definitely, many of our friends are registered on the scheme after struggling to get on the property ladder.
