London Help To Buy
How does it work?
The London Help to Buy scheme could help you realise the dream of owning your own home in the capital. When you put down as little as a 5% deposit on a newly built home, you can get a Government equity loan - for up to 40% of the purchase price.
If the home in the example above sold for £535,000, you would get £214,000 (40% from your mortgage and the cash deposit) and you would pay back £294,250 on the loan (55%). You would need to pay off your mortgage with your share of the money.
You won't be charged loan fees on the 40% loan for the first five years of owning your home.
Aldermore, Bank of Scotland, Barclays, Halifax, Leeds, Lloyds, Nationwide, NatWest, Newcastle, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander, Teachers and TSB offer London Help to Buy.
Who is eligible?
London Help to Buy equity loans are available to first time buyers as well as homeowners looking to move. The home you want to buy must be newly built with a price tag of up to £600,000.
You won't be able to sublet this home or enter a part exchange deal on your old home. You must not own any other property at the time you buy your new home with London Help to Buy.
