Getting on the housing ladder

Iain and Sharon realise that it can be really tough to get on the housing ladder these days.  Properties are expensive and mortgages can be difficult to get, especially if you only have a small deposit. It can be very frustrating when you are probably paying more in monthly rent than you would pay in any mortgage repayments.  Or are you fed up with still having to live with family when you feel you could afford your own place.  Well, help might be at hand with a government backed scheme called “Help to Buy.”

Help to Buy Scheme

This is a government scheme which could make getting on to, or moving up, the housing ladder more accessible. It helps existing home owners and first time buyers purchase a home with as little as 5% deposit.

The downloadable guide below provides further information on the two ways to purchase a property with this scheme:

1. Mortgage Guarantee

The guide explains how the scheme works and you can also see if you would be eligible with the quick checklist provided.

2. Equity Loan

Available on new build properties only, download the guide to get a basic understanding of how the equity loan operates and if it would be suitable for you.
