Help to Buy (Eastleigh)
If you are struggling to save a large deposit for a home in Eastleigh, the Government Help to Buy scheme could help you into a property sooner than you think. There are several different options available:
HELP TO BUY: EQUITY LOAN
This can help first time buyers and those who want to move to a new property purchase a new build house. This scheme involves receiving a equity loan for 20% of the property's purchase price (interest free for 5 years), you then provide a 5% deposit and take out a mortgage for the remaining 75%.
HELP TO BUY: MORTGAGE GUARANTEE
This scheme can help you purchase a new build or older property as long as you do not own any other property at the point of purchase. It involves taking out a mortgage, part of which has been guaranteed by the Government, which allows the lender to offer you a higher loan to value than normal (80-95%).
HELP TO BUY: SHARED OWNERSHIP
This involves buying a share in a property and paying rent on the remaining share. In the future you then have the option to buy further shares if you wish. Certain new build homes are available to purchase through shared ownership and you can also purchase current shared ownership properties which are being resold.
