There are very few of us who can afford to buy a property outright and saving a substantial deposit to help us buy a home is difficult in these cash flow tight times, which means that we nearly all need a mortgage to help us. That is where the Help to Buy Scheme came in, whereby the government fronted up to 20 percent of the deposit for you so you only needed a small deposit of 5 percent to be able to buy with a mortgage of just 75 percent loan to value. Sadly this has now ended. Instead use our our 30 years of mortgage advice / market experience and you could be well on your way to borrowing up to 95% loan to value (LTV) of your ideal property.

What Was The Government Help To Buy Mortgage Scheme?Help to Buy is a government mortgage scheme is no longer available. It could help you get a mortgage with a deposit for as low as 5% and had been available for buyers since 2014. Essentially the help to buy mortgages fall under two main government schemes which are aimed at helping homebuyers; whether that is a home mover or first time buyer, get a mortgage with small deposits. Note this point, many people think the helping people to buy means first time buyers only, this is not the case, home movers are also welcome to look at these options. This assistance can be provided either through an equity loan or mortgage guarantee. Both options allow the government to provide a platform to those who can afford it through certain lenders who have agreed to take part in the help to buy plan options. It could help you get the keys to your dream home either with a help to buy route or one of the many other ways of getting on the property ladder if you choose First Choice Finance to help, as an experienced broker could help be a step closer to arranging the mortgage that will get you into your own private residence.
Help To Buy Mortgage Guarantee - Now Suspended.The help to buy mortgage guarantee helped you to buy a property with as little as 5% deposit of the purchase price. The has now been suspended from availability. The only current option is the Help to buy equity loan scheme which is for new builds only. This is unfortunate as it was open to both first time buyers and homeowners alike, and it didn`t just have to be a new build property. As the property didn`t even have to be newly built it vastly increased the housing market you could choose from and as long as the purchase price is below £600,000 you could have been eligible. Let`s hope this comes back soon. The key difference from the second help to buy mortgage scheme `equity loans`, is that the guarantee is provided to the mortgage lender and not to you, so you don`t have to worry about repaying another loan. Whilst there is some important affordability eligibility criteria you must satisfy, there is no upper limit on your level of income you simply need to be able to supply just a 5% deposit. For more information on the help to buy mortgage guarantee status in particular give us a call or check this page and we will try to update you if it comes back.....
Equity Loans On New Build Properties - Ceased in 2022The help to buy equity loan scheme was designed to make new build properties affordable for purchasers who might otherwise not be able to afford one. The basics were that the government will provide you with a loan of up to 20% of the full purchase price of a new build property. You will only be required to provide a 5% deposit and can then take out a mortgage for 75% of the purchase price. For a better idea of how much you need to save, or whether your existing savings are enough head over to our loan to value calculator to give you an exact idea of what 5% of the purchase price might be. You need to bear in mind that the government will own a 20% stake in your home, so for example if you sell your house they will receive 20% of the sale proceeds. Now, if you are ready to go and want to apply for a suitable mortgage we are ready to help.
