What is Help to Buy?

Help to Buy is the name of a government scheme that aims to help first time buyers, and those looking to move home, purchase residential property. With the Help to Buy Equity Loan, the government will lend you between 15% and 40% of the property price. The percentage of the loan depends on where you live. You will need to put down a deposit of at least 5% and get a mortgage to cover the rest of the property’s value.

Share to Buy is a national property portal, listing Help to Buy, Shared Ownership, rental and other affordable home ownership properties. You can search for properties, use our helpful guides and FAQs to get all the info you need and we can even help you search for mortgages and conveyancing solicitors.
