Forces Help to Buy

Giving those in the Armed Forces a helping hand on to the property ladder in conjunction with Help to Buy.

In 2014 the Government launched Forces Help to Buy, a deposit loan scheme from the Ministry of Defence (MOD) for regular Armed Forces members. It has been extended until 31st December 2019.

How it works

The scheme aims to make it easier for Britain’s regular Armed Forces personnel by enabling successful applicants to borrow their 5% deposit from the MOD. They could also take advantage of Help to Buy – the popular scheme that has already helped so many on the property ladder across the UK giving the necessary boost to secure a 75% mortgage with a 20% Help to Buy equity loan funded by Government.

How much could I borrow?

The scheme 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 installments over the term and the typical amounts per rank are listed below:

     Maximum Loan Amount

Private

     £10,800

Sergeant

     £15,000

Corporal

     £13,200

Major

     £23,800


Who is eligible & how do I apply?

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.
