How does the Help to Buy Equity Loan Scheme work?

This is a scheme that has been set up to help out first-time buyers. Previously it was available to existing homeowners looking to move home, though as of April 2021 this is no longer the case as they have remodelled the scheme. Here are a few important and notable facts about the Help to Buy Scheme:

 

– You will require a minimum of 5% deposit

– Up to 20% of the property’s value will be treated as an equity loan from the Government

– The balance will be covered by a special Help to Buy mortgage.

How do you qualify for the Help to Buy scheme?

We will advise you as to whether or not you may be able to qualify for this scheme – this is all a part of our personalised service. Help to Buy Equity Loans apply to new-build properties, with the maximum value being completely dependant on the area that you live in. The exact figures for your location can be found on the Own Your Home government website. This scheme is designed only for first time buyers.

 

Part of the terms and conditions specify that you should not own any other property i.e., you cannot buy a second home with the help of this scheme.  Part-exchange and sub-letting is also something that will not be allowed.

 

Help to Buy Shared Ownership

Help to Buy Shared Ownership scheme, you can buy a share in a property. The percentage is usually between 25% and 75%, however, on some occasions, you may be allowed to purchase as little as 10%. You then will pay back the remaining percentage through rent.

 

If you can’t quite afford the mortgage on 100% of a home, Help to Buy: Shared Ownership offers you the chance to buy a share of your home (usually between 25% and 75% of the home’s value) and pay rent on the remaining share. Later on, you could buy bigger shares when you can afford to.

For a Help to Buy, you will need to have at least 5% of the sale price of your new build property in Sunderland. The Government will then loan you an additional amount up to 20% of the properties value.

As a trusted and well experienced mortgage broker in Sunderland, we will first carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs, before we begin searching and recommending the most suitable mortgage for you. A credit check will be required for an Agreement in Principle. A formal mortgage offer can be issued once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken.

To avoid any kind of disappointment with a property, we recommend you obtain an Agreement in Principle before you begin property viewings in Sunderland. We would say that at the very latest, you should obtain one before you start to make offers, in order to assist your bargaining position.

A standard Agreement in Principle typically lasts for around 30 to 90 days depending on the Lender. If your Agreement in Principle expires, you can get it easily refreshed.

You may have the option of getting a second mortgage on your home for things like debt consolidation or Home Improvements. This can also be possible if you’re wanting to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let.

Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts to the lender, you may be eligible for a mortgage. Most Lenders will calculate the maximum mortgage with salary plus dividend, whereas others sometimes go off your net profit.

A lender will usually need three payslips for an employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for an applicant who is self-employed. You will also need to provide them with proof of ID, address and 3 months’ bank statements.
