Plumlife is the Government’s Local Help to Buy Agent for Greater Manchester, Lancashire and South Yorkshire, and is a one-stop shop for information and applications for affordable home ownership schemes across these areas. These include Help to Buy – Equity Loan and Help to Buy Shared Ownership.

As Help to Buy Agent, Plumlife helps eligible working people to step either on or up the property ladder, offering a range of schemes funded by the government.

Help to Buy schemes are designed to reduce the costs of home ownership by lowering the deposit required by lenders, and also keeping monthly repayments down.   

Plumlife works in partnership with housing associations and most of the UK’s top house builders, to offer a superb choice of desirable new-build homes at developments which offer government-backed affordable ownership options.

Customers can access free, impartial financial advice through Plumlife’s regional panel of independent mortgage advisers. Get help and advice on which schemes suits you best and how to secure the most suitable mortgage product for you.
