Help to Buy Equity Loan
The Help to Buy Scheme can be used when you buy a Market Sale property from us but it has the benefit of allowing you to purchase your home with just a 5% deposit rather than 10%.
After raising your deposit, up to 20% of the cost of your new build home is available as an equity loan meaning you only need to take out a 75% mortgage. Also, you won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home.View our homes for sale
Help to Buy FAQs
The ‘Help to Buy Equity Loan’ scheme allows buyers to own 100% of a property with as little as 5% deposit, 75% mortgage and 20% government loan. The scheme makes property up to £600,000 more accessible for people with small deposits and allows buyers to own homes that are otherwise out of their financial reach. The scheme was made available through participating house builders and HomeBuy agents in April 2013 and is available to purchasers who wish to buy a new build property.
Subject to meeting the eligibility criteria and affordability checks, you can use the Help to Buy scheme to purchase a new build property.
The maximum property purchase price varies by region as follows:
- East of England - £407,400
- South - £437,600
- West Midlands - £255,600
- East Midlands - £261,900
The interest rates on the mortgage you select will be set by lenders and so we recommend you speak with a financial advisor directly. The Government will not set the price, this is a commercial decision for individual lenders.
The loan is interest free for the first five years. From year 6 of your equity loan, a fee of 1.75% per year will be levied, payable on a monthly basis. Thereafter this will rise each year in April by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), plus 2%.
The scheme is available for those purchasing a home for the first time but also to purchasers who have previously owned a property subject to qualification - it isn't a shared ownership scheme.
