Help to Buy
What is it?
Help to Buy is available to first time home buyers and home movers looking to move into a new build home with a price of up to £600,000. The Government will lend you up to 20% of the purchase price and you won’t be charged fees* on this loan for the first five years of home ownership. This means you will only need a 75% mortgage and a 5% cash deposit to buy your new home. This scheme is only available in England.
Looking to buy in London?
Help to Buy works different in London. The HTB Equity Loan from the government is for up to 40% of the value of a property, provided you have a deposit of 5% you will only need a mortgage of 55% of your new home.
The Help to Buy rules are changing from April 2021. Get in touch to find out more.
