Get on the property ladder using Help to Buy

If you're eligible you can take advantage of the government's Help to Buy Scheme.

The government Help to Buy scheme offers eligible people the chance to purchase a home through one of three methods. For first time buyers there is the Help to Buy ISA, where you save for a deposit for your first home and the government will add 25% on top of your savings – up to a maximum of £3,000 extra. The provider of the ISA will also pay interest on your savings, tax fee – this can be as much as 2.5% but you should shop around for the current best deals. For full details click here.

The Help to Buy Equity Loan enables you to buy a new home with just a 5% deposit. The government lends you up to 20% of your deposit on a new build home, thus you will buy a home with 5% of your savings, 20% from the loan, with a 75% mortgage. There are no fees or interest to pay for the first 5 years, interest will be payable from year 6 onwards. For full details click here.

The Help to Buy Shared Ownership scheme is for people who cannot afford to purchase 100% of a property. Instead they buy between 25% and 75% of a leasehold property, and pay rent on the remainder to a housing association. You can purchase either a new build or preowned home if you are a first time buyer or a former homeowner. For full details click here.
