Help to Buy Wales
Help to Buy Wales is the new shared equity scheme from the Welsh Government aimed to help homebuyers purchase a new home with as little as 5% deposit.
Help to Buy Wales is available to both first-time buyers and existing homeowners on new-build properties across Wales with a maximum purchase price of up to £300,000.
Through Help to Buy Wales buyers with a minimum of 5% deposit can receive an interest free equity loan* of up to 20% of the value of their new home, leaving only a 75% mortgage to secure with a high street lender.
The interest free equity loan is provided by the Welsh Government and can be repaid at any time.
The scheme is available to homebuyers regardless of their annual personal income with mortgages expected to be available from a range of high street lenders.
A similar scheme is also in operation in England with Help to Buy.
To take advantage of Help to Buy Wales search for your new home and speak to a member of our sales team or contact us for further information.
