Help to Buy is a Government initiative to assist people getting on or moving up the housing ladder who can afford mortgage payments but are struggling to raise a deposit

Many people in Gloucester and throughout the UK are unable to purchase a home or move house because of the large deposits required in today's difficult mortgage market.

The Help to Buy scheme is a government scheme which could make getting on to, or moving up, the housing ladder more accessable.  It helps existing home owners and first time buyers purchase a home with as little as 5% deposit.

If you are looking to purchase a property in Gloucester up to the value of £600,000 there are two Help to Buy schemes available:

The Two "Help to Buy" schemes are included?

  • Help to Buy "equity loan", available on new build properties now.  You can find details on this scheme here.
  • Help to Buy "mortgage guarantee", designed to encourage greater provision of mortgages for people with smaller deposits.  

What is the "Help to Buy": equity loan?

The Help to Buy - equity loan scheme is only available with new build homes.

Under the scheme

  • Government provides equity loan of 20%
  • You arrange a mortgage for 75%
  • Meaning your deposit is 5%

Many developers advertise plots that are eligible for Help to Buy on, so you can search for Help to Buy homes now using our property search.
