Help to buy
Help-to-Buy is a mortgage guarantee scheme designed to help first-time buyers and existing property owners move up the housing ladder. It allows borrowers with a 5% deposit to buy property worth up to £600,000. With a Help to Buy: Equity Loan the Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your newly built home, so you’ll only need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest.
You won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home. If you live in London, you can borrow up to 40% of the purchase price. The Government has confirmed it will extend its Help to Buy equity loan scheme from 2021 to 2023. However, this extension will be restricted to first-time buyers purchasing newly built homes.

Lifetime Mortgages & Equity Release
A lifetime mortgage is a way to boost your income later in life by allowing you to release some of the equity held in your property. It’s a type of equity release where a loan is secured against your home, which is later repaid once you have entered into long-term care or upon your death. With a lifetime mortgage, you get a tax-free cash sum (usually of £10,000 to £100,000), which may be taken all at once or released in smaller amounts as and when you need them. Interest is accrued on the amount you have borrowed; this can be repaid or added to the total loan amount.
If you still have a mortgage left to pay on your property, the money you release with an equity release mortgage will go to pay this off first. Then, it’s up to you to decide how you spend the rest, whether that’s on a big holiday, making home improvements, or helping to get your children onto the property ladder. You still keep ownership of your home, which you can continue living in until you die or you enter into long-term care.
At this point your home is usually sold and the money from the sale is used to pay off the loan amount. Particularly attractive to homeowners looking for an additional income stream, equity release is gaining in popularity because it lets you get cash from the value that’s tied up in your home, however there is no need to move house or downsize. 5 key reasons why equity release is becoming so popular:
