Help To Buy FAQs

The equity loan element of Help to Buy came into operation on 1 April 2013.

Buyers will be provided with an equity loan from the Government of up to 20% of the value of the property. This will be interest free for the first five years. You won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home – See more at: https://www.helptobuy.gov.uk/equity-loan/equity-loans/#sthash.Dwhmb1uE.dpuf

After this period, a fee of 1.75% is payable on the equity loan, this will rise by RPI inflation plus 1%

The loan can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years (or the terms of mortgage), or alternatively on the sale of the property.

The Government is continuing its pledge to help more people across the country become homeowners. It is also concerned with increasing the supply of low-deposit mortgages and new housing

If you can raise a 5% deposit you will be able to buy a new home under Help to Buy

Help to Buy is available for both first-time buyers and existing homeowners.
