The government has created the Help to Buy scheme to help hard-working people like you take steps to buy your own home. This scheme is available on some of the new home sites we offer.
How does it work?
With a Help to Buy: equity loan the Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your new-build home, so you’ll only need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest.
You won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home.
Example: for a home with a £200,000 price tag
In the future, if the home in the example above sold for £210,000, you’d get £168,000 (80%, from your mortgage and the cash deposit) and you’d pay back £42,000 on the loan (20%) if you moved within five years. You’d need to pay off your mortgage with your share of the money.
