Help to Buy England

Consider how you could move with just a 5% deposit

The government’s Help to Buy scheme means you could afford more than you think when looking for your dream home.


How Help to Buy works:

  • You can reserve a home with a deposit starting from just 5% of the total purchase price

  • The government will lend you up to 20% of the value of your new home via an equity loan, so you will only need a 75% mortgage

  • The equity loan is interest-free for five years – it can be paid back at any time or upon the sale of your home

  • Currently available to all home buyers, but from 2021 the scheme will only be available to first-time buyers, so don’t miss out on securing your dream home.

The scheme is available to all homebuyers, not just first-time buyers, and will run until March 2021; don’t miss out on securing your dream home. For more information, get in touch with the Sales Executive at your desired development who can explain more about how Help to Buy works.

If you qualify for Help to Buy assistance and you raise a mortgage of at least 75% of the purchase price of your new home from a lender, you can borrow up to the remaining 20% of the purchase price by taking out a loan secured over your new home from the government’s Homes & Community Agency (HCA) over a period of 25 years. A 5% deposit is required by the lender. More may be required depending upon circumstances and your lender’s criteria. Help to Buy is subject to eligibility and terms and conditions.
