So, what is Help to buy and how does it work? Help to buy is a UK government scheme which aims to help people who are struggling to buy a home to 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 a new or existing help to buy property. 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 (builds) homes, the government can lend a maximum of 20% towards the purchase cost, meaning you only need a 5% cash deposit and a maximum 75% mortgage to buy your new home. If you are looking to buy a property in the wider London area, the percentage the government will lend you increases to 40%. However, the property must cost no more than £600,000. There are also property price caps for other regions. This scheme was revised in 2020 and is only available for first time buyers.
If you are interested in the help to buy scheme or want to check your eligibility, our expert mortgage advisors are here to help. They are available 7 days a week to meet or chat with you, and will tell you how much you can afford to borrow and which mortgage product best suits your needs.
