Help to Buy: Equity Loan

How does it work?

Most of the properties in Heritage Park are eligible for the Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme. Open to first time buyers. Help to Buy can help to make the cost of buying a new home more affordable.

With the government-backed scheme, you’ll only need a 5% deposit. The government will provide 20% of the property’s value in an equity loan, meaning you’ll need just a 75% mortgage to cover the rest of the cost.

You won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home.
