Buy a new home in Yorkshire & Lancashire using the Help to Buy Scheme. It could enable you to buy with only a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage.
We offer the Help to Buy scheme across all our developments in Yorkshire & Lancashire.
Help to Buy is a government-backed scheme that is essentially an extension of the FirstBuy scheme but is now accessible to all buyers (dependent on your financial circumstances), not just for first time buyers. A new home for you and your family may have been inaccessible to you before this scheme.
Now, you can buy your new home with as little as a 5% deposit by using a 20% equity loan from the government and a 75% mortgage.
