The government has announced that they will extend the Help to Buy: equity loan scheme to December 31st 2020.
This means you can still have an opportunity to buy a brand new home with only a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. The government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your new build home and you wont be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years. The equity loan must be repaid after 25 years or earlier if you sell your home.
Why is this good news? Its simple, the Help to Buy scheme was intended to help 74,000 households buy a new build home by March 2016. So far Help to Buy has supported over 25,000 reservations and this new extension to December 2020 means that a further 120,000 households will have the opportunity to purchase a home.
