The Liberal Democrat MP was given a brief tour of the bank before sitting down to discuss some of the bank’s current schemes. The local MP heard how the bank are issuing mortgages to first time buyers – enabling young people to move onto the housing ladder.
Halifax supports the Government’s new Help to Buy scheme, which aims to help both first time buyers and home movers who have deposits of at least 5% to buy a new build home.
The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green also spoke to other members of staff – including a mortgage advisor and another working with Halifax’s bright sparks charity scheme.
After the visit, Lynne Featherstone MP said:
“It was great to see how Halifax is using the Government’s new scheme to help people get on the housing ladder. This is particularly helpful for young people and those unable to save for huge deposits.
“I wish Halifax in my constituency the best in getting this information out to the people in Haringey who want to buy property.”
