Pride in every detail – first time home buying with FABRICA

Buying your first home can be a stressful process, particularly when trying to find the right balance between location, size, specification and cost, but you don’t need to compromise when buying with FABRICA.

From apartments of striking urban architecture to houses with a more rural intimate charm, every FABRICA development reflects our dedication to high-quality, sustainable living and exceptional customer service.

The Help to Buy scheme assists first time buyers with getting on the property ladder, but you need to act fast as the scheme ends on March 31st 2023. A minimum 5% deposit is required, along with a 75% mortgage (55% in London). The remaining 20% (40% in London) is an equity loan from the government that is interest free for the first five years. The scheme applies only to new build homes and has a price cap of £600,000 in London and £437,600 in the South East.

Shared Ownership allows first time buyers to take out a mortgage on a property for a percentage of the purchase price and pay rent on the rest. It’s available to UK residents with a household income below £90,000 in London, and £80,000 outside of London. You will need to purchase a minimum percentage between 25% and 75% (T&Cs apply) of the property value. Your deposit however only needs to be 5-10% of the share you are buying, not of the full market value. Rent is only paid on the remaining value of the property, making this a very affordable solution to getting on the property ladder.
