Schemes Available to First Time Buyers

Help to Buy

The scheme offers a financial boost for those of you who can raise a 5% deposit.

This is only available on new-build properties and means if this sum is saved, the Government will offer an interest-free loan* worth up to 20% of the property’s value.

The remaining 75% is then repaid in the form of standard mortgage repayments. *this is currently interest free for the first five years but interest then becomes payable thereafter.

Right to Buy

This aims to support council tenants into property ownership.

If you have at least three consecutive years’ tenancy, then you may be entitled to buy your home at a significant discount.

Please consult with your mortgage adviser for full details and any other schemes which could help you purchase your first home.

Shared Ownership

This enables people to purchase a share between 25% and 75% of an existing or new home.

The property is typically purchased from a local housing association, then rent is charged for the percentage of the property not being purchased.

How Our Mortgage Services Help You

A mortgage is usually your biggest financial commitment, so it’s even more important that your first steps on the property ladder are successful. Our advisers can help assess your financial situation using the size of your deposit, your banking and credit history along with other financial information.

Once this has been reviewed and accepted, a mortgage will be granted by the lender. In most cases, a mortgage offer lasts for a period of between three and six months.
