Buying a home

Buying a home – particularly your first home – can be a terrifying experience for many of us. It’s likely to be the biggest purchase you’ll make in your life and because you’ve got to live in it and can’t take it back if you decide you don’t like it, it’s important to get it right. To add to the pressure, no one could ever claim that buying a home is simple. Ask anyone who’s been through it and there’s a big chance that they’ll use words such as ‘complicated’ and ‘stressful’ to describe the experience.

That said, about 70% of us in the UK (source: National Statistics Office) are homeowners so there are plenty who have survived the process. If you’re thinking about joining them, then why not have a look at the information we have here on buying a home?

You may also find this section useful if you’ve never thought about buying a home, perhaps because you think you can’t afford to or just because no one you know has ever owned their own home. Once you’ve finished this section you’ll be armed with facts and can make an informed decision.
