How does Help to Buy Equity Loan work?
With Help to Buy Equity Loan, you only need a minimum deposit of 5% of the value of your new home. The Government lends you an equity loan of up to 20% of the value of your home (15% in Scotland, 40% in London), so you’ll only need a 75% mortgage (80% in Scotland, 55% in London).
How long will the Help Buy scheme run for?
The current scheme will be available until March 2023.
Is Help to Buy a shared ownership scheme?
No. With the Help to Buy Equity Loan, you purchase 100% of your home and legally own 100% of your home.
Can I pay off the equity loan before the end of the first 5 years?
Yes. Once you have purchased your home, you can choose at any time to make voluntary part repayments or a full repayment, based on the market value at that time. The minimum voluntary repayment is 10% of the market value at that time.
