The Help to Buy scheme is designed to make saving for a deposit easier for first-time buyers, therefore improving the accessibility of purchasing your own home.
It’s a government-backed scheme that allows you to purchase a property with a deposit of as little as 5%. The government will provide you with a loan of up to 20% of the value of a new build home, and you then borrow the rest (up to 75%) from a mortgage lender.
