Help to Buy Scheme
The Help to Buy initiative was introduced by the UK government in April 2013 to allow first time buyers and home movers to purchase a new home with a 5% deposit.
The Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme is available on new build properties from participating home builders and offers an interest rate as low as 2.34%. A minimum of a 5% deposit is required in order to receive a 20% equity loan from the government, followed by a 75% mortgage from a qualified lender.
Unlike other shared equity schemes, you will retain 100% ownership of your home. In England the equity loan from the government will be interest free for the first 5 years. After year 5, a 1.75% fee is payable which will rise alongside RPI inflation, plus 1% annually. In Scotland the equity loan remains interest free for the duration of the loan.
