Help to Buy Equity Loans

Help to Buy Equity Loans are only available for those buying a newly constructed home worth under £600,000.00.

With property prices at an all-time high, buyers are finding it increasingly difficult to raise a large deposit needed to secure a home. The government is aware of this problem and in 2013 initiated the help to buy scheme as a way to help those without a large deposit purchase their first property or move into a new to buy loans

Provided that you do not own any other property at the time that you apply for help to buy equity loan and that you have a deposit of 5%, the government will lend to you up to 20% of the property value as an equity loan. You will then be responsible for raising a mortgage of 75% of the balance of the purchase price.

The first five years of the help to buy equity loan is interest-free. From year six, interest is charged subject to the help to buy lending criteria.
Repayment of the equity loan must be made upon the sale of the property.

Our conveyancing experts can advise clients on all aspects of help to buy equity loans which include making the application concerning a proposed purchase.

Our Conveyancing team can also advise and assist when a property that is subject to an existing help to buy equity loan is going to be remortgaged or if you wish to repay the help to buy equity loan.

In cases where a property is owned by a married couple or cohabiting couples, and a separation takes place, it is often necessary to transfer the property into one of the co-owners names. There is a legal process to undertake with the help to buy equity loan provider, and that is a process which our expert lawyers can undertake on your behalf and with little fuss.

We have a range of experienced lawyers who can advise on the process of obtaining, transferring of redeeming your help to buy equity loan and completing the process of the same.

We have been involved with Taylor Bracewell for the last 5 months, following the sudden death of a close relative. Probate was obtained quickly and efficiently, all the same with the conveyancing of his property. All the way through, we have been well informed of the legal requirements, and always kept up to date with progress. You have helped us greatly through this very difficult time and we really appreciate this. Many thanks for your kindness. Mr & Mrs Newman opening-speachmarks closing-speachmarks
Buying and selling a property is know for being stressful. Taylor Bracewell acknowledge this and worked with us to fill in the gaps when we were unsure. Having a direct telephone number to Richard was a huge help, he answered directly and always replied to our emails. With six sellers/buyers in our chain, the process was long but Taylor Bracewell's professional service eased the way to a very satisfying conclusion. I would have no doubts in recommending Taylor Bracewell as conveyancing solicitors. Mr & Mrs Whiteley opening-speachmarks closing-speachmarks
