A £2 million pot of funding has been set aside to help struggling first-time buyers.

Dacorum Borough Council is hoping to help a minimum of 50 people get their first home through the launch of the Local Authority Mortgage Scheme.

Under the scheme first-time buyers will be able to purchase a property with a deposit of just five per cent. The borough council will stump up a cash backed indemnity of up to 20 per cent as additional security.
