On the 1st April 2014 the Government launched Forces Help to Buy, a deposit loan scheme from the Ministry of Defence (MOD) for regular Armed Forces members to use along with Help to Buy, to purchase a new build house with just a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage. 

The scheme aims to make it easier for Britain’s regular Armed Forces personnel to borrow their 5% deposit from the MOD and take advantage of Help to Buy – the popular scheme that has already helped so many on the property ladder across the UK. The scheme is available to regular Armed Forces Personnel who are first time buyers and those who may need to move due to a change in circumstances. It offers an interest free loan to applicants of up to 50% of their salary, with a maximum of £25,000. The loan is repayable in monthly instalments over the term and the typical amounts per rank are listed below:

Rank Maximum Loan Amount 
Private £10,800
Sergeant £15,000
Corporal £13,200
Major £23,800

With the help of a Forces Help to Buy deposit loan Armed Forces are given the necessary boost to secure a 75% mortgage with a 20% Help to Buy equity loan funded by Government.
