How does the Help to Buy: Equity Loan Scheme work?
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.
Example: for a home with a £200,000 price tag:
If the home in the example above sold for £200,000, you’d get £160,000 (80%, from your mortgage and the cash deposit) and you’d pay back £40,000 on the loan (20%). You’d need to pay off your mortgage with your share of the money.
It’s very important that you fully understand how this scheme works and the future options here.
We search 1000s of mortgage deals across a large number of lenders, including:

Your free mortgage consultation in Lincoln will generally last around 60 minutes. An advisor will then recommend a mortgage for you, with no obligation for you to go forward. You are free to decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the mortgage in question.
As a dedicated and experienced mortgage broker in Lincoln, we work on your behalf. We will carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we recommend the most suitable mortgage for your circumstances. A credit check will then be required for you to obtain an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued to you by the lender.
To avoid any kind of possible disappointment, we would definitely recommend that you obtain an Agreement in Principle before you begin viewing properties in Lincoln. At the very latest you should obtain one prior to making an offer, as it is free of charge and can put you in a much better bargaining position down the line.
An Agreement in Principle will usually lasts for anywhere between 30 and 90 days depending on the Lender that is used. If your Agreement in Principle expires it can always be refreshed with the help of your mortgage advisor.
It may be possible to get a second mortgage on your home if you’re looking to do Debt Consolidation or Home Improvements. You may also find that it’s possible to take out a mortgage on a second property if you’re wanting to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let.
If you have had any type of credit problems in the past, you can still get a mortgage but you may possibly be required to put down a higher deposit than expected, perhaps 15% of the properties purchase price.
Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts, you are then eligible for a mortgage. Most Lenders will be using your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage, whereas others have been known to go off your net profit.
It’s usually three payslips that a lender will need to see for an employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for Self Employed. You will also need to produce proof of ID, address and the last 3 months’ bank statements.
The general amount of time that your free consultation with an advisor will last is around an hour or so. A mortgage advisor can turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours of your consultation. A formal mortgage offer will take on average about three weeks.
