So you’ve found your perfect new home, let us help you make buying it a little easier.
GHE Homes have a range of schemes designed to make your new home more affordable, and we are always looking at new schemes and incentives to make buying your dream house a reality.
Help to Buy
This is a government backed-scheme to help you move into a new home with as little as a 5% deposit. This incentive is available to everyone from first-time buyers to existing home-owners wanting to buy a ‘new build’ house. The purchase price must be under £600,000, and the scheme allows you to borrow 20% of the purchase price interest-free for the first five years as long as you have a 5% deposit. This means you will only need to secure a mortgage of 75% of the purchase price. If you live in London, you can borrow up to 40% of the purchase price. The scheme is available until 2021.
e.g. Buying an example home with a purchase price of £250,000.
- Deposit £12,500
- Government loan £50,000
- Mortgage amount £ 187,500
