Help to Buy will dramatically cut the time it takes for aspiring homeowners to achieve their homebuying goal.

We expect to help 25,500 homebuyers in the next three years. With an average mortgage of £140,000, the total lent by RBS and NatWest is likely to exceed £3.5bn.

Some people we interviewed about trying to buy a home have been trying to get onto the housing ladder for years, while others depend on help from their parents to save for a deposit.
