How does Help to Buy work?

How does Help to Buy work?

With a Help to Buy loan, first-time buyers can own a home with just a 5% deposit.
As part of the scheme, the government will lend you up to 20% of the cost of your home, so you’ll only have to pay a 75% mortgage on the rest.
To make sure the scheme is accessible to those who will benefit most, there are regional price caps. In the North West this is capped at £224,400.

EXAMPLE: Purchasing a property valued at £172,000

(1)YOUR deposit

5% deposit as your contribution: £8,600


The government will top-up your deposit by 20%: £34,400


You will then pay a mortgage on the remaining 75%: £129,000
