Who’s eligible to use Own New’s service? And how does it work?

This scheme is open to anyone buying a new build property including first time buyers and home movers. Own New works with home builders and lenders behind the scenes, taking a fee from the home builders and using this with the lender to reduce the interest on mortgage payments for the initial term.
