For many people, the size of a deposit needed to get a mortgage can be the biggest obstacle to buying their first home or moving up the ladder. Help to Buy Mortgage Guarantee helps lower this barrier by getting you moving with just a 5% deposit.
Another great aspect of Help to Buy Mortgage Guarantee is that it isn’t a shared ownership scheme – you’ll own 100% of your home. So if your home increases in value, only you will benefit from the increased equity.

Do you have a bigger deposit?
If you have a 10% deposit (or more), you may be interested in Deposit Boost. With this scheme we could boost your deposit by funding an additional 5% of the sale price, giving you 15% deposit in total. This means you need to borrow less from a lender and could even secure a more competitive mortgage rate.
