Owning your first home is a hugely exciting prospect for people across the country, giving them a place to call their own and placing them securely on the property ladder.
The UK government's Help to Buy scheme is designed to help these first time buyers purchase tasteful, modern and wonderfully located properties with the Help to Buy equity loan.
This loan is provided by the government to be put towards a newly built property, built by a registered Help to Buy homebuilder. With the scheme, you can borrow between 5% and 20% of the price of the new home, with the rest of the cost covered by a regular mortgage from a provider, opening up the market for your first-time buying plans.
