Would you trust your other half to buy a new home?

Factual entertainment format Honey I Bought the House is a nail-biting approach to the reality of buying a first home, which sees couples given a £15,000 deposit to get them on the property ladder. The only catch is they are separated immediately and one has three weeks to secure a property – or they lose the money. The hunt is on for the perfect home. Will their partner be thrilled with their new property and sign the mortgage papers, or risk losing that precious deposit?

Each episode delivers comic insight into the vastly differing ideas that many couples have about what makes an ideal home. We see how one person’s dream house is another’s worst nightmare, as we tell the story of the struggle to buy the perfect property for their other half.

And that’s not all; they must have an offer accepted on a property and then get their partner’s approval before the money’s in the bag, putting their relationship – and finances in the balance.
