More than 35,000 households have been helped on to the property ladder through the Government's low-deposit Help to Buy schemes, housing minister Kris Hopkins has announced.
The latest figures show that since the launch of Help to Buy 14 months ago in England, 22,831 people have bought newly-built homes through the Help to Buy equity loan scheme.
A further 7,313 sales have taken place through the Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme which was launched across the UK last October.
In England, 5,173 sales have also happened through the NewBuy scheme, taking the overall number of homes sold under the Help to Buy banner to over 35,000.
All sales which take place through the Help to Buy equity loan scheme and three-quarters of those for all the schemes running under Help to Buy are for new-build properties, the Government said.
Recent estimates show that Help to Buy accounts for 3% of overall house sales.
Mr Hopkins said: "In 2010 we inherited a broken housing market, where hard-working people who could afford a mortgage were locked out of home ownership because they couldn't get the deposit together.
"And with housebuilding up a third over the past year, it's clearly having a wider impact."
