How does Help to Buy work?
The Help to Buy equity loan scheme enables first time buyers and existing home owners to purchase a new home with just a 5% deposit.
The government will lend you up to 20% of the value of your new home, leaving you to raise the remaining 75% from your mortgage provider. Significantly, you will not be charged any fees on the 20% loan the government would provide for the first five years.
