Help to Buy

Help to Buy is available to both first time buyers and existing home owners. The scheme means you can buy a new home with just 5% deposit.

  • Raising a mortgage and deposit can be difficult for first time buyers, but with the Help to Buy scheme you only need 5% which is hopefully much more achievable and affordable way to buy your new home.
  • If you’re an existing homeowner, you can use Help to Buy to trade up to a bigger property – you’ll just need to have sold or be selling your current home as the scheme can only be used to purchase your one and only property.

So how does Help to Buy Equity Loan work?

The maximum purchase price of a new home when using the scheme is up to £600,000.

Help to Buy Equity Loan cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion or scheme, and can be used to buy a new build home only.
