Help To Buy Mortgage Advice

Phase 1 - New Build Homes

With a Help to Buy mortgage, the government will loan you up to 20% of the cost of a new-build home, so you only need to find a 5% deposit and then take a 75% mortgage to make up the rest.

Help to Buy mortgages on new build homes are available to both first-time buyers and home movers on properties with a value of up to £600,000. You will not be able to rent out this property to anyone else; it must be your main residence.

Here is an example of how this type of mortgage works:

  Cost %
Purchase price £200,000 -
Government Equity Loan £40,000 20
Deposit (cash) £10,000 5
Your Mortgage Amount £150,000 75

If you later sold the property shown in the table above for £210,000, you'd receive £168,000 (80%, from your mortgage and the cash deposit) and pay back £42,000 on the loan (20%). You'd need to pay off your mortgage with your share of the money.

Phase 2 - Mortgage Guarantee Scheme

Initially planned to be introduced in January 2014, the Government has brought this scheme forward to October 2013 for both second hand properties and new build properties.

If you're looking to buy a residential home with just a 5% deposit, then the Help to Buy Mortgage Guarantee scheme could be the way forward for you, and we are able to advise on these products.

The Mortgage Guarantee Scheme aims to increase the availability of mortgages for buyers with small deposits. The Government is aiming to provide £12billion in mortgage guarantees.

The Help to Buy Mortgage Guarantee scheme is available:

  • On both new build and previously owned properties up to £600,000 in value
  • To first-time buyers and existing home-owners

Mortgage Term

Most people opt for a 25 year term when they take their first mortgage out. However, you can apply for a longer or shorter term. If you go for a longer term, your repayments will be lower, but it will take you longer to pay off the debt and the interest due would be higher. The shorter the term, the sooner you will be mortgage free.
