What is Help to Buy?

The Help to Buy Equity Loan is a Government scheme for first time buyers on new build properties only. It provides an equity loan of up to 20% of the purchase price, which you can put towards the cost of buying a new build. This means that you could own your first home with just a 5% deposit.

Am I eligible for Help to Buy?

To be eligible for the Help to Buy equity loan, you must be a first time buyer and buying a new build property from a registered house builder.

You cannot own, or have ever owned, a home or residential land now or in the past in the UK or abroad.

There is also additional criteria that you have to meet with both Help to Buy and mortgage lenders. Our new build mortgage advisors are very experienced with the differing criteria and they will be able to guide you through this process.
