Elmbridge Equity Loan Scheme

If you live or work in Elmbridge and are looking to buy a home of your own but need some financial support to do so, then you may be able to access up to £90,000 under the Elmbridge Equity Loan Scheme. We work in partnership with Catalyst Housing to support would-be purchasers to buy with a low interest loan.

Funding is limited and the scheme is targeted at first-time buyers, although other cases will be considered in exceptional circumstances.

For more information please download the brochure

To register your interest in the scheme, please contact Catalyst’s Equity Loans Team or call them on 0300 456 2077.

Rented homes for key workers

Paragon Community Housing provides key worker homes over seven schemes in Elmbridge.
