Helping You Move
Help to Buy
If you are interested in buying a new build property, the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme could help. The scheme makes it possible to borrow up to 20% of the cost of a new build from the government. You only need a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest.
Here’s a quick summary of the important bits:
- Available in England for affiliated new builds with a value up to £600,000.
- Both first-time buyers and existing homeowners are eligible.
- Buyers need a minimum deposit of 5%.
- You must occupy the property and it must be your only property.
How does it work?
With the Equity Loan scheme you can borrow 20% of the purchase price of a new build property valued up to £600,000. You won’t have to pay anything on the 20% loan for the first five years. In the sixth year you will be charged 1.75% of the loan’s value, which will increase every year by the retail price index plus 1%.
