Until 31 March 2021
The clock is ticking on the Governments existing Help to Buy scheme which ends on 31 March 2021 so make sure you don’t miss the deadline!
A new Help to Buy scheme for first time buyers only in England will replace it on 1 April 2021. As with the current Help to Buy scheme, you could borrow up to 20% of the cost of a new build home. The amount you can purchase a home for using the scheme will depend on where in England you are buying.
Help to Buy is a government-backed scheme which could help you get on or up the property
ladder with just a 5% deposit. It’s the perfect solution if you struggle to save.
Here’s how it works…
The Equity Loan Scheme results in more affordable home ownership.
With Equity Loan Scheme you only need a 5% deposit and it's open to both first-time buyers and home movers alike.
With the Equity Loan Scheme the government provides you with a loan of up to 20% through the Homes
and Communities Agency (HCA). This is interest free for the first five years. When added to your 5% deposit
(giving you a deposit of 25% in total) it means you could access more attractive mortgage rates for cheaper monthly
repayments. You can repay the equity loan at any time without penalty.
Equity Loan Scheme can be used to purchase homes worth up to £600,000 but it can't be used to purchase a buy-to-let property.
Please note: the terms of the Help to Buy initiative vary between England, Wales and Scotland.
Even London has its own version. So please research the scheme in the area most relevant to where you live and/or wish to buy.
