Buy a new home in London with just a 5% deposit

If you are looking to buy a property in London, then the London Help to Buy scheme could help you to move sooner than you think.

All you need is a 5% deposit to secure your home. The Government will lend you up to 40% of the property value, meaning you only have to secure a mortgage of up to 55% from a bank or building society. The Government equity loan is interest-free for the first five years and can be repaid at any time during the loan term or on the sale of your home.

London Help to Buy:

  • Requires a minimum deposit of 5% of the property value of your new home.
  • Is available on new-build homes up to £600,000.
  • Is available for properties located in one of London’s 32 boroughs, or the city of London itself.
  • Both first time buyers and existing homeowners can benefit from the scheme.
