    Abstract

    With it becoming increasingly more difficult for 18-35 year olds to get onto the property ladder, the Government is attempting to intervene by introducing subsidies and schemes such as Help-To-Buy, which should aid first-time buyers and in turn, have a positive impact on the UK economy.
    This research report first reviews housing in the UK and establishes an understanding of the factors affecting housing, which range from economical to political to social factors. The Help-To-Buy scheme is then analysed to ascertain whether the scheme is fulfilling its purpose in getting young people on the property ladder.
    The scheme is now over 2 years old and the first part of the scheme has been extended by 4 years to 2020, therefore, this report encompasses housing commentator opinions in order to evaluate the success of the scheme and to help understand just why the scheme is so popular.
