You must have at least a 5% deposit
You must not own any other property
You must buy a new build home
The home must not be more than £600000
You cannot sublet your home
In addition to this, the mortgage that you use alongside the scheme is only offered by a selection of banks and building societies and there are some strict rules applied when it comes to income multiples and debt to household income ratios.
