3 simple steps to getting a mortgage
Quickly see how likely you are to be accepted for a mortgage, before you apply
Help to buy is a government scheme which aims to help people who are struggling to buy a home get on the property ladder. There are two parts to the scheme; shared ownership and equity loan.
Shared ownership: Enables you to buy shares (between 25% and 75%) of new or existing help to buy properties. You will need to pay rent on the remaining portion. However, when you can afford to, you can buy additional shares until you eventually own your home in its entirety.
Equity loan: With help to buy new homes, the government lends up to 20% towards the purchase cost, meaning you only need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage to buy your new home. If you are looking to buy a property in London, the percentage the government will lend you increases to 40%. However, the property must cost no more than £600,000.
