With as little as 5% deposit the Help-to-Buy equity loan scheme is available to first-time buyers.
The government’s Help-to-Buy Equity Loan scheme has proved to be extremely popular. The government lends you up to 20% (40% if you’re in London) of the cost of your newly built home. You contribute a deposit of 5% or more and arrange a mortgage of up to 75% to make up the difference between your government loan and personal deposit.
You will not be charged interest on your government equity loan for the first five years of owning your new home. This scheme is available for first-time buyers and has proved popular with those who struggle to meet the deposit requirements for a regular purchase.
The rules and criteria surrounding Help-to-Buy loans and mortgages are changing, and we believe it is more important than ever to be able to call upon expert advice when exploring this area.
