Buy your new home now and pay later with Shapps’ new housing scheme
The Housing Minister is leading a new government scheme to help boost the struggling house building industry and allow house builders to build and sell new homes before having to pay for the land that they are built on.
This “buy now, pay later” scheme is being backed by the Homes and Communities Agency and will have a big effect on the construction industry.
The initiative is expected to create 18,000 construction jobs and will see an estimated 3,000 new homes built this year. The scheme is expected to deliver 60,000 new homes over the next decade.
Six sites have been chosen for the wave of new homes. Dave Wilson Homes, Keepmoat and Swan and Countryside have been named as the main contractors and the sites in question are in Basingstoke, Northampton, Telford, Hemel Hempstead, Tower Hamlets and Nottingham.
This new scheme by Grant Shapps and the government will be a huge boost for the housing industry, and will help first-time buyers get on the property ladder, which the government set out to do in their Budget for 2011. It will also create thousands of jobs for plumbing, electrical and gas contractors around the country.
