What is Help to Buy?
Help to Buy is a scheme available to first time buyers in England
that enables you to buy a new build home with just 5% deposit.
With Help to Buy, you can apply for a Government equity loan of up to 20%* of the cost of a new build home – this loan is interest free for 5 years before interest fees start to be charged in year 6*. The terms and conditions of the Help to Buy scheme do vary slightly across the different regions of England – speak to your sales advisor or local Help to Buy agent to find out more.
