Affordable housing

We provide a substantial number of much needed affordable homes in the UK each year. During 2010, we delivered 1,824 affordable homes, which was 18% of our total home completions.

Taylor Wimpey is committed to helping its customers and in particular first time buyers secure a new home. We have a number of Taylor Wimpey schemes to help prospective customers finance their home purchase with us. Our Friends and Family Advantage product allows others to contribute towards a first time buyer’s deposit and earn interest on their money. In addition, in early 2011, Taylor Wimpey launched the ‘Take5’ 95% mortgage product, using an insurance backed guarantee to provide an affordable source of funding to first time buyers. We have also participated in the UK government’s HomeBuy scheme until it closed, completing 450 homes as part of this initiative during 2010. The HomeBuy scheme provided financial help for people who could not otherwise afford to buy a home.
