Who is eligible?

The scheme is available to first-time buyers and existing home owners. The home you buy must be your only residence. Help to Buy is not available to assist buy-to-let investors or those who will own any other property after they complete. Book an appointment today and we can introduce you to a New Homes Mortgage Adviser who will be able to tell you if you qualify for the scheme.
