Help To Buy

The Help to Buy scheme could allow you to own your new home with as little as a 5% deposit. This Government initiative is open to first time buyers and those looking to sell and move up the property ladder on new homes up to a maximum purchase price of £600,000.

If you have saved your 5% deposit then you could apply for a 20% equity loan from the Government which means you could take advantage of the more attractive mortgage rates for the remaining 75%. Help to Buy puts your Backhouse house more easily in reach as your mortgage repayments could be more affordable than you first thought.

We’d be delighted to tell you more so please contact us on info@backhousehousing.com to speak to one of our dedicated customer service team who can support and guide you.
