The scheme, which helps people buy their first new-build house, sees the government lend up to 20% of the cost of the property.

This means house-hunters only need a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage to purchase the home.

More than 7,000 homes have been bought in Kent under Help to Buy since it was introduced six years ago.

The scheme remains hugely popular, and these houses below are likely to be snapped up soon...
