Are you considering buying a new build home? Then you’ll want to do your research: from finding out about the schemes that could help you get on to the property ladder to weighing up the pros and cons. Here’s what to consider….
What is a new build?
A new build property is one that is brand new and hasn’t been lived in. And if you buy your new build home ‘off-plan’ – which means buying before it has been built – you may be able to choose certain aspects of the design too.
Help to buy schemes
If you want to buy a new build home, the good news is there are three main schemes available to help you secure your dream home. These are:
Help to Buy Equity Loan
This government scheme is designed to help people buy a new build home and get on to the property ladder. When you buy through the scheme, the Government will loan you up to 20% of the property’s value – or up to 40% if the property is in London. This is known as an equity loan. You need a minimum deposit of 5% and you’ll take out a mortgage for the remaining amount. The scheme is available to first time buyers and regional price caps apply on the value of property you can purchase, up to a maximum of £600,000 in London.*
Deposit Unlock is a brand-new scheme that has been devised in collaboration with lenders and the housebuilding industry. It’s designed to enable first-time buyers and existing homeowners to purchase a new build home from participating home builders with just a 5% deposit.
With Shared Ownership you buy a share of a property and pay rent on the rest. The share you can buy is usually between 25% and 75%, however, you can buy a 10% share of some homes. It could be a good option if you have a restricted budget: because you’re only buying a percentage of a property, you’ll need a smaller mortgage and deposit. You can buy a bigger share of your home after moving in. This is called staircasing.
Why should you invest in a new build?
Lots of factors make buying a new build home very appealing.
