Helping you buy your first home

Buying your first home means making big decisions:

• Where should I live?
• Which property should I make my home? 
• How will I pay for it?

At Barclays, we’re helping first time buyers to feel a little more confident when it comes to making those big decisions.

We will be on-hand at the London Home Show 2016, with a team of Mortgage Advisors throughout the day to offer support and guidance to help you understand your property needs and how much you could afford to borrow.

Mortgages designed for first-time buyers

In preparation, I’ve listed below some of our mortgages designed for first-time buyers, to give you an idea of what options might be available to you. As well as offering traditional and specialist fixed rate and tracker mortgages, we also work closely with Government initiatives such as Help to Buy and shared ownership.

  •  Family Springboard mortgage
    A mortgage that enables your family to help you get on the property ladder without having to spend their savings.
  • Helpful Start
    Apply for a joint mortgage with members of your family to help you afford the mortgage for the property you want to buy.
  • Help to Buy London (Equity Loan)
    he government’s London Help to Buy could give your deposit a boost with a contribution of up to 40% for properties in London.
  • Help to Buy (Equity Loan)
    he government’s Help to Buy could give your deposit a boost with a contribution of up to 20%, with schemes available in England and Wales, and 15% in Scotland.
  • Shared Ownership
    Buying a share of a property with a housing association means you can apply for a smaller mortgage amount – and increase your share later if you choose to.
  • Buying with othes
    ​Can’t afford a mortgage by yourself? Buying with someone else can help you take that first big step on to the property ladder.
