A Stratford housing show hopes to help Londoners put a foot on the property ladder.

The Town Hall in the Broadway hosts the First Time Buyer Home Show on Saturday.

Visitors at the free event, which runs from 10am until 4pm, can receive mortgage and legal advice, organisers say.

Schemes would also be available to reduce the upfront costs of homeownership, they added.

Managing director Lynda Clark said the capital offered “some of the biggest challenges” for newcomers to the property market.

She described Newham as a “massive draw for aspirational homebuyers” with its “value for money” and “ever-increasing benefits of the ongoing regeneration”.

Seminars on topics including purchasing schemes will be held throughout the day.
