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.
