First Homes scheme for first-time buyers explained

Low-income workers in England will be able to apply for a discount of up to 50% on a new-build home under a new affordable housing pledge due to launch next month. First Homes, as it's known, will launch on June 28 - exactly one year after being confirmed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Under it, first-time buyers will be able to get at least 30% off a new house - and in some cases a half price reduction.

It will see private developers ring-fence 25% of their properties for buyers who qualify for the discount. The scheme will be available to people who are trying to buy a home in the area they grew up, work or currently live in - but are unable to do so because of rising house prices. It is estimated that it could save struggling buyers an average of GBP100,000 off their home.

The government has been consulting on exactly what the First Homes scheme will look like for over a year - and has now revealed its final plans. Here's everything we know about how it will operate.

What is the First Homes scheme?

(C) Getty Images The scheme will be reserved for first-time buyers only

First Homes is the government's latest affordable housing promise and will offer reduced properties to first-time buyers purchasing new-build flats or houses in an area connected to them - such as the place they work. Under the scheme, buyers will be able to get on the ladder for at least 30% less than market value, and potentially up to 50% off in some cases.

The minimum discount eligible Brits will get off their homes will be 30%. However, the government has now announced it's possible that the discount could be as high as 50% off. That is because local authorities will have the discretion over the size of the discount - this will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Who can apply for a First Homes discounted house?

The scheme is only for first-time buyers - and will not apply in Wales or Scotland, the government has confirmed.

And to reserve it for those that need it most, it won't apply if your combined household income is over GBP80,000, or GBP90,000 if you live in London. If you can afford to buy one of the homes with the discount and your savings, you also won't qualify. Buyers must use a mortgage for at least 50% of the price of the discounted home.

Local authorities will also have the flexibility over who qualifies for the first three months. For example, some authorities may give key workers or people who pass the 'local connection' test, first dibs. Local connections may include (but are not limited to) current residency, employment requirements, family connections or special circumstances, such as caring responsibilities.

After three months of the home going on sale, extra conditions set by the local authority will be removed for any First Homes which haven't been sold or reserved.

Will there be a cap on house prices?

There will be a cap on the price of First Home properties, meaning after the discount has been applied, you won't be paying more than GBP250,000, or GBP420,000 if you live in London. But this price cap could be even lower, depending on whether your local authority chooses to lower it.

When will it launch?

(C) Getty Images It will also only apply on new build homes

The scheme will launch on June 28, 2021. However many of the homes are still in development, meaning they are unlikely to be ready before next year when you can move in.

How do I apply?

Unlike Help to Buy, there will be no formal registration for the First Homes scheme.

Instead, hopeful buyers will need to do their own research to find the developers taking part and then apply directly through the company. Buyers can use the official Help to Buy website as well as property websites such as Zoopla and Rightmove to help locate new developments in their chosen area. Some of these will host first-time buyer events and open days where you can enquire and place offers on newly-built and in development properties.

There's also no deadline to hit to apply for a First Home - it all depends on the development and when the property is ready to be moved into.

You'll have to sell it for the discount you purchased it for

(C) Getty Images The discount will have to be passed on

There's one important small print rule buyers need to be aware of. When it comes to selling up, you probably won't make any huge gains relative to fluctuations in the housing market because it will have to be sold to someone (a first-time buyer) who is also on the first-homes scheme. The idea is that this will help circulate affordable homes amongst the group that need it most.

But it means you'll need to sell it with the same discount you bought it for. For example, if you bought it for 30% off market value, you'll also need to sell it for 30% off what it is now worth. However, the sale will not be subject to the same GBP250,000 (and GBP450,000) price caps in London.

Crucially, that also means there is a risk that if the property value goes down, you could end up selling it for less than what you bought it for.

Propertymark, which oversees estate agents, said the scheme is a "creative initiative" and one that could "really work" but warned it could send house prices rising even further.

Chief executive Nathan Emerson, said: "We have a very busy market right now, full of hungry buyers, and there is a danger that introducing more buyers without increasing supply could further push the supply and demand out of balance, meaning house prices would continue to rise," the company said.

Liberty Steel tycoon Sanjeev Gupta to sell seven UK plants employing 1,500 in restructuring

Steel tycoon Sanjeev Gupta is selling seven UK plants employing 1,500 people in a restructuring following the collapse of lender Greensill. They include Liberty Steel's largest UK site, its aerospace and special alloys business at Stocksbridge, near Sheffield, where 762 currently work. Stocksbridge's "downstream" sites at Brinsworth, near Rotherham, employing 101, and West Bromwich, which has 167 workers, are also to be offloaded.

Please use Chrome browser for a more accessible video player

Gupta tells workers: 'I will not give up on you - you are my family'

Meanwhile, parent company GFG Alliance has begun sale processes for Liberty Aluminium Technologies, and Liberty Pressing Solutions, which together employ 475 people - in Coventry, Kidderminster and Witham, in Essex.

Liberty Steel said the Stocksbridge sale would help it complete its UK restructuring and refinancing and allow it to focus on its plant at Rotherham. Advertisement A spokesman declined to add any further comment when asked about the prospects of a sale.

Last month, in a Sky News interview, Mr Gupta promised thousands of UK workers facing uncertainty in the wake of the collapse of its main lender Greensill Capital that he would not shut any of its plants.

More from Business

Currently, his GFG business empire employs 5,000 people in the UK including 3,000 at Liberty Steel. Greensill lent money to firms including Mr Gupta's by buying their invoices at a discount.

Investors including clients of Credit Suisse were among those left exposed to billions of pounds of potential losses by the lender's collapse. The latest announcement follows talks over the weekend in Dubai involving Mr Gupta and his restructuring team with Credit Suisse - which resolved the future of Liberty's business in Australia as well as "identifying a positive solution" for its UK operations.

Liberty said it would protect thousands of UK jobs in its core "green steel" business which involves recycling scrap metal in a process powered by renewable energy.

Earlier this month, the Serious Fraud Office said it was looking into the GFG businesses including links with Greensill.

Fortunes of UK online billionaires soar by a FIFTH during lockdown

Fortunes of UK online billionaires soar by a FIFTH during lockdown: Sunday Times Rich List reveals record 171 billionaires in Britain despite lockdown as Sir Leonard Blavatnik comes out top with GBP23bn wealth

  • Warner Music's Sir Leonard Blavatnik topped the Rich List with a GBP23bn fortune
  • UK billionaires saw their fortunes soar from GBP106.5billion to GBP597.2billion in 2021
  • Losses noted for Philip Green, Duke of Westminster and Andrew Lloyd Webber

By Faith Ridler For Mailonline

Published: 10:27, 21 May 2021 | Updated: 11:37, 21 May 2021

A record 171 billionaires in the UK saw their fortunes soar by more than a fifth as they shook off the financial toll of the pandemic, the Sunday Times Rich List reveals. 

Ukrainian-born Sir Leonard Blavatnik, 63, has topped the Rich List for the second time with his GBP23billion fortune following a GBP7.219billion leap in his wealth.

Overall, the number of UK-based billionaires has jumped by 24 per cent compared to 2020 in a stark contrast with the economic turmoil of a global crisis which saw millions enter furlough.  

But this had little impact on the very wealthiest, with the fortunes of billionaires increasing by 21.7 per cent over the year - from GBP106.5 billion to GBP597.2 billion.   

Blavatnik, 63, saw his personal wealth leap by GBP7.219billion, placing him at the top of the Rich List for the second time since 2015 - when he was worth GBP13.17billion.

Who are the top 10 richest people in the UK in 2021? 

These are the 10 richest people in the country according to the rich list:  

  1. Sir Leonard Blavatnik - GBP23 billion
  2. David and Simon Reuben - GBP21.46 billion
  3. Sri and Gopi Hinduja and family - GBP17 billion
  4. Sir James Dyson and family - GBP16.3 billion
  5. Lakshmi Mittal and family - GBP14.68 billion
  6. Alisher Usmanov - GBP13.4 billion
  7. Kirsten and Jorn Rausing - GBP13 billion
  8. Roman Abramovich - GBP12.1 billion
  9. Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken and Michel de Carvalho - GBP12.01 billion
  10. Guy, George, Alannah and Galen Weston and family - GBP11 billion

The Ukrainian-born businessman made his fortune in the music industry, having cashed in a GBP1.377billion stake in Warner Music when it listed in the US last year.  

Despite his wealth, Blavatnik is understood to have furloughed a member of staff at the global sports subscription service DAZN during the pandemic. 

He took the title of UK's richest man from Sir James Dyson, who slipped back to fourth in the table after his wealth only increased by GBP100million to GBP16.3billion.

The electricals entrepreneur was also beaten by property investors David and Simon Reuben, who reached the second spot after their wealth increased by GBP5.46billion to GBP21.46billion.

Meanwhile, Sri and Gopi Hinduja, who run the Mumbai-based conglomerate Hinduja Group, saw their fortune rise by GBP1billion to clinch the third spot.

Other notable billionaires to feature in the top 10 include Alisher Usmanov, who saw his wealth rise by GBP1.7billion after selling his 30 per cent stake in Arsenal football club.

Chelsea owner and fellow Russian Roman Abramovich also saw his fortune climb, rising by GBP1.9 billion to GBP12.1 billion for the year.

Further down the list, fashion magnate Sir Philip Green saw his fortune drop by GBP20million to GBP910million after his Arcadia fashion empire collapsed into administration in November.

Retailer Anders Povlsen tops Rich List in Scotland 

Scotland's wealthiest people saw their fortunes soar over the course of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the latest Sunday Times Rich List.

Danish retailer Anders Povlsen was named the richest person in Scotland in the latest study, increasing his wealth by GBP1.27 billion to GBP6 billion.

He is named as one of 10 billionaires in the Scottish rich list.

Mr Povlsen, who owns more land in the UK than the Queen and the Church of Scotland combined, increased his fortune chiefly off the back of his retail empire, according to the study.

He has a 25 per cent stake in the online fashion giant Asos - which recently acquired the Topshop, Topman and Miss Selfridge brands - with the bulk of his wealth stemming from the Denmark-based fashion retailer Bestseller.

Lockdown has also proved lucrative for Glenn Gordon and family, owners of the Willian Grant & Sons whisky business.

The family have registered gains of GBP409 million in the past year to lift them to GBP3.595 billion.

John Shaw and Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw lifted their wealth to just under GBP3 billion.

Glaswegian Mr Shaw and his wife own a 60 per cent stake in Biocon, an India-based pharmaceuticals business.

Only five of the top 14 spots on the Scottish list failed to increase their fortune.

The Thomson family are listed in seventh at GBP1.271 billion, down GBP136 million and Trond Mohn and Marit Mohn Westlake and family are in eighth at GBP1.259 billion, down GBP66 million.

Jim McColl is 10th at GBP1 billion, no change on last year; Lord Laidlaw is 12th at GBP787 million, no change; and Sir Brian Souter and Dame Ann Gloag are 14th at GBP650 million, down GBP80 million.

The fall of the Group, which included Topshop, Burton and Dorothy Perkins, was one of the most significant losses noted on the High Street during the Covid crisis. 

Three of the brands were ultimately sold to Boohoo, but thousands of jobs were placed at risk as the retailers prepared to move online.   

Others who saw their wealth sink over the past year include the Duke of Westminster, Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sir Cameron Mackintosh.  

The Duke, who owns the lucrative Grosvenor Estate in Mayfair, London, saw his personal wealth drop by GBP241million. 

However, he did manage to remain in the top spot of the Sunday Times Young Rich List - for those 30 and under - with a fortune of GBP10billion.

He slipped two places to 12th on the main Rich List.

Lockdowns also had an impact on those who make their money on the West End, with Andrew Lloyd Webber's fortune falling by GBP275million.

This meant his total net worth dropped by 34 per cent to GBP525million ahead of theatres finally reopening this month.

The British composer is set to open his latest musical, Cinderella, at the Gillian Lynne Theatre next month. He did not feature on the main Rich List for 2021. 

Les Miserables producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh also saw his wealth shrink amid the pandemic, with his net worth falling GBP40million to GBP1.2billion.

He did, however, manage to remain in the top 250. Sir Cameron is placed at 138.

Musician Adele, 33, is another whose wealth took a hit, dropping by GBP20million to GBP130million amid her divorce from charity CEO Simon Konecki.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who topped the list in 2018, also saw a significant drop in his personal fortune, with the Rich List noting a loss of GBP5.82billion since 2020.

The CEO of the Ineos chemicals group fell 20 places on the List in 2021.     

Robert Watts, compiler of the rich list, said: 'The global pandemic created lucrative opportunities for many online retailers, social networking apps and computer games tycoons.

'The fact many of the super-rich grew so much wealthier at a time when thousands of us have buried loved ones and millions of us worried for our livelihoods makes this a very unsettling boom.' 

Only around one in five of the Rich List's top 250 are women, with 19 of the 53 who appear featuring as half of a married couple. 

Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken and Michel de Carvalho (above) are in 9th place with a fortune of GBP12.01 billion

Another 27 inherited at least some of their wealth.

Elsewhere, the wealth of some of Britain's most established musicians has also jumped, with Sir Mick Jagger, 77, the lead singer of the Rolling Stones, now worth GBP310 million.   

Sir Elton John's personal fortune rose by GBP15 million to GBP375 million, despite the lack of live music performances permitted during the Covid crisis.

But it was Sir Paul McCartney, 78, who topped the list of music millionaires with an estimated net worth of GBP820million, up GBP20million.

He was the only musician to make the main Rich List, sitting in 196th place.   

At the other side of the spectrum, England football star Marcus Rashford has topped the Sunday Times Giving List in a record-breaking year for donations.

Rashford, 23, has also appeared on the Young Rich List for the first time with a fortune of GBP16million.

The likes of One Direction stars Zayn Malik, 28, and Louis Tomlinson, 29, were also featured for their GBP36million and GBP45million fortunes respectively. 

Danish retailer Anders Povlsen was named the richest person in Scotland in the latest study, increasing his wealth by GBP1.27billion to GBP6billion.

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford, 23, tops Sunday Times Giving List after raising GBP20million in donations from supermarkets

England football star Marcus Rashford has topped the Sunday Times Giving List in a record-breaking year for donations.

The Manchester United striker, with a personal worth of GBP16million, has become the youngest person to top the philanthropy list by raising GBP20million in donations from supermarkets for groups tackling child food poverty in the UK.

For the first time, total donations on the list exceeded GBP4billion, with a 36 per cent rise on the previous year's GBP3.2billion taking the 2020 total to more than GBP4.3billion.

Along with helping charity FareShare distribute four million meals to vulnerable children during the pandemic, Rashford, 23, also forced a series of Government U-turns over free school meals.

The Prime Minister retracted his vow not to extend the voucher system into the summer holidays on June 16, two days after Rashford called on his Cabinet to reconsider the decision in an open letter.

In October, he launched a petition urging the Government to again extend free school meals through the half-term and Christmas holidays, eventually pressuring ministers into providing GBP170million of extra funding.

Rashford, who received free school meals himself, was made an MBE in the delayed 2020 Queen's Birthday Honours List.

He has since called for an urgent review of the free school meals system.

Lindsay Boswell, FareShare chief executive, said: 'We are delighted he's been honoured in this way.

Marcus's support for FareShare over the last year - and his commitment to tackling child hunger - has simply been incredible.

The Sainsbury family ranked second in the list, as serial benefactors through a network of trusts which generated just under GBP230million for charities.

Jonathan Ruffer, whose Auckland Project is leading the regeneration of the former County Durham mining town, was third with GBP62million gifted in 2020.

The Sunday Times ranking sets the sums donated or raised for charity against the Rich List wealth valuation for those individuals or families.

Coronavirus has fuelled the giving spree, and the Giving List recorded nine donations of more than GBP100million and 71 gave at least GBP10million - up from 42.

B&M selling Cadbury chocolate bar never sold in the UK before

B&M is now selling a Cadbury chocolate flavour for the first time in the UK. Shoppers are excited for the Cadbury Neapolitan flavour, which was previously only available in Australia. The chocolate bar is meant to look like the classic ice cream dessert.

It is made up of three layers, including Dairy Milk chocolate, Dream white chocolate and strawberry flavoured chocolate. Cadbury said: "Cadbury Dairy Milk Neapolitan is a nostalgic nod to a favourite Australian dessert and a novel take on the ice-cream classic that delivers a unique three-layered block." B&M is known for selling hard-to-find Cadbury flavours like the Dairy Milk Moro and the Dairy Milk Crispy Mint Creme.

Last year shoppers went wild for the Moro bar, which is filled with smooth caramel inside a coating of chocolate malt-flavoured creme and Cadbury's traditional milk chocolate. The discount shop also offers a vintage favourite - the Dairy Milk Top Deck. This tasty flavour includes a layer of milk chocolate topped with rich white chocolate.

The Mint Creme bar pairs classic milk chocolate with a mint flavoured creme filled with crispy mint pieces. B&M announced the Neapolitan flavour on Instagram, saying: "Has anyone else spotted these tasty Cadbury UK bars in store yet?! (originally from Cadbury Australia!) "They've just made an appearance, alongside a wider range of exotic #chocolate bars, so they're well worth picking up next time you pop in for an essential shop."

Excited shopper, kevssnackreviews, also flagged on Instagram that B&M have Coco Orange Shreddies back in stock.

B&M recently hit the news for their new bargain GBP5 solar lights that people have been using to transform their back gardens.

With friends and family only allowed to gather in a group of six outside, many people are snapping up heaters, fire pits and twinkling lights to make their gardens into cosy spaces for guests.
