How does it work?

  • You only need a 5deposit for your new home 
  • The Government provides a ‘Help to Buy Equity Loan” for up to 20% of the value of the property
  • This loan is interest free for 5 years and can be repaid at any time within 25 years or on the sale of your home
  • You then need to secure up to a 75% mortgage
  • Competitive mortgage rates are available, and we can introduce you to a (potentially fee-free) New Home Mortgage Adviser who’ll search the market to find you a great deal.

Who is eligible?

Help to Buy is available to both first time buyers AND existing homeowners.

However, there are a few important conditions:

  • the home you buy must be your only residence
  • the scheme isn’t available to buy-to-let investors or those who will own any other property after they complete.
