Buy your home with just 5% deposit

Help to Buy is the government-backed scheme which helps homebuyers who want to purchase a property, but don’t have a large deposit.

All purchasers eligible

Help to Buy provides assistance to buyers who can raise at least a 5% deposit, with the government then providing a loan up to 20% of the value of the property.

The purchaser can then get a mortgage on the remaining 75% of the cost of their new home, giving access to better interest rates and more affordable repayments.

Help to Buy is available for anyone, not just first time buyers. So anyone looking to move home could be eligible.
