What is Help to Buy?

Help to Buy infographic

With Help to Buy, you could buy a brand-new home sooner than you think.

  • You only need a 5% deposit.
  • The Government lends you up to 20% of the value of the property.
  • The loan is interest-free for 5 years, making your dream home more affordable.
  • You then need to secure a 75% mortgage.

There are a range of competitive mortgage rates available with this scheme, so it’s worth comparing lenders to find the best deal. We can introduce you to a New Home Mortgage Adviser who’ll search the market to find you a great deal.
