Affordable housing - help to buy

Social rented housing in Stevenage is in increasingly high demand and short supply, but there are now a number of affordable housing options available to local people who wish to buy a property but cannot buy on the open market  because, for example, they are unable to save for a large deposit.

Help to buy

"Help to buy" is a government initiative designed to help people get on the home ownership ladder . Help to buy is operated by different agencies in different parts of the country and from 1st April 2014 the Help to buy agent for the East and South East Region, which includes Hertfordshire, is Bedfordshire Pilgrims Housing Association.

The available Help to buy options vary from time to time and from area to area, so for up to date information on what is currently available in and around Stevenage please contact Bedfordshire Pilgrims Housing Association directly.

Telephone: 03333 214044
