Own Your Home - Government-Backed Schemes Explained

25th May 2016

Getting on the property ladder can seem an impossible dream for many these days – with interest rates hiked and property prices rising, Britain’s generation of eternal renters is simultaneously growing.

But though renting may seem more feasible in the short term, the costs of rent can rack up to tens of thousands, with very little to show from years of expenditure – and no place to call your own.

With a range of government-backed schemes on the market, several of which are readily available throughout our brand new developments, we could open the door to your new home for you.

We’ve tried to explain the new schemes in the easiest way so you can choose the one that suits your situation.

Help to Buy Equity Loan

Available on all our properties, up to the value of £600,000, with an equity loan, only a 5% deposit is required. The government will lend up to 20% of the value of a property through an interest and repayment free equity loan for the first five years.

Interest is added from the sixth year and the loan can be repaid at any time up to, or on the sale of the home.

So what’s the catch? There isn’t one! Buyers will only need to secure up to a 75% mortgage from a bank or building society.  Plus competitive interest rates and lower monthly mortgage repayments are usually available. Winner winner!

Help to Buy Mortgage Guarantee

Whether you’re a first time buyer or upsizing, a mortgage guarantee could be for you.

A range of 95% mortgages are available on all Rowland homes in England, up to the value £600,000. Although a 95% mortgage will need to be secured from a participating mortgage lender, prospective buyers only need to save for a 5% deposit..

Help to Buy ISA

If you’re saving to buy your first home you could take advantage of a Help to Buy ISA. With this the Government will boost your savings by 25%
