Where to buy a home in Cheshire under the new Help to Buy scheme

THE Government’s hugely popular Help to Buy equity loan scheme for new-build homes is changing on April 1 and will only be available to first time buyers.

Price caps that vary by region will also apply. In the North West the price cap is set at £224,400, so properties that come in under this can still be purchased via the new scheme by those who have not previously owned a property.

This means they can receive a Government-backed loan for up to 20% of the purchase price, interest free for the first five years, and need only save for a 5% deposit while applying for a 75% mortgage.

The new scheme applies to properties that will be completed after April 1, 2021 and is already open for applications given many new homes are purchased off-plan with a completion date some months away.
