Help to Buy

Help to Buy was first introduced in 2013 to offer a 20% Government loan (or 40% in London) to first-time buyers of qualifying new-build properties.

The scheme lets customers with a low deposits (typically 5% or over) get their foot on the housing ladder.

How it works

  • You need to provide a 5% deposit.
  • The government will lend you up to 20% of the property value (up to 40% if buying within Greater London).
  • You then need to secure up to a 75% mortgage.
  • The loan is interest free for the first 5 years. After that you'll be charged the full interest rate. 

Who is it for?

  • It's aimed at first time buyers and existing homeowners who are eligible.
  • It is only available on one property, so when it applying it must be for you only property.
  • There are Terms and conditions that apply to all Help to Buy schemes so make sure you check the full eligibility criteria. . 

There are two types of scheme available, one that is purely for newly built homes (the Equity Loan Scheme) and one for Existing Homes (The Mortgage Guarantee Scheme).
