Help to Buy Mortgages - Your Questions Answered

By offering a more manageable deposit of just 5%, help to buy mortgages allow you to save and buy a property much quicker than ever before.

It is a route which helps many make the step from wasting money on rent to finally having a foot on the property ladder.

What is a Help to Buy Mortgage?

The help to buy scheme is a Government led initiative introduced to assist those looking to own their own home. By offering lower deposits and lower rates of interest for fixed periods of time, it helps more people own their own homes.

How do Help to Buy Mortgages work?

Help to buy mortgages are designed much like a regular mortgage but come with smaller deposits, no interest on your loan for the first 5 years and cheaper rates because you’re borrowing less overall. The Government lends you up to 20% equity of the cost of a new build home, meaning you’ll only need a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest. You can redeem or contribute more to the equity further into your mortgage deal.

How do you get a Help to Buy Mortgage?

You can only qualify for a help to buy mortgage if you’re a first-time buyer or an existing homeowner who wants to buy a ‘new build’ house. From April 2021 until March 2023 the scheme will be limited to first-time buyers only. The home you want to purchase must be your only place of residence and not a buy to let project

Things to consider before choosing a Help to Buy Mortgage

Having a deposit is key to a help to buy mortgage, although it can be as small as 5%, you must make sure this lump sum is in cash and accessible. It’s also important to ready yourself financial scrutiny and a thorough process throughout.
