Help to buy

The government backed help to buy scheme has helped thousands of people climb the property ladder and with Walton&Allen it could help you too.

What is help to buy?

Help to buy initially began in 2013 as a means to help first time buyers get onto the property ladder. Providing a buyer could raise a 5% deposit then the government would fund the remainder of the deposit as an equity loan. Although the scheme was initially for first time buyers buying new build properties only but was quickly expanded to include people moving up the property ladder. Now the scheme has also been expanded to include existing properties as well as new builds.

If you have any further questions about how you could move into a new home with as little as 5% deposit, talk to a member of the Walton&Allen’s estate agency team today.
