Armed forces finding a home with help from heylo housing

Residential property company heylo recently signed the Armed Forces Covenant, pledging its commitment to fair treatment and support to the Armed Forces community, including regulars, reserves, veterans and their families. The signing took place in a ceremony held at Wellington Barracks

heylo works in partnership with housebuilders, estate agents and local authorities to deliver part-buy-part-rent solutions across England and Wales. These partnerships, paired with the signing of the Covenant, now bring home ownership within reach for many in the Armed Forces Community,

heylo’s CEO, Nicholas McAlpine-Lee said: “I am both honoured and delighted to sign the Armed Forces Covenant on behalf of heylo, as we believe that everyone in the UK should have the opportunity to access a stable home and the benefits of home ownership.”

This increased access means the majority of serving personnel are able to use Forces Help to Buy as their deposit in conjunction with heylo’s part-buy-part-rent solutions, to get on and move up the housing ladder.

Major General Ben Bathurst, General Officer Commanding London District, co-signed the Armed Forces Covenant with heylo housing. He said: “The support of organisations such as heylo housing is hugely important to all of us in the military. I believe strongly in taking steps to make it easier for Service Personnel to own their own homes, coupled with the Forces Help to Buy scheme, as the domestic stability it provides helps to recruit and to retain the talent that we need in the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force.”
