London Help To Buy Equity Loans

  • London Help To Buy, provided by the Government, was launched in February 2016 and is available for properties across all London boroughs.
  • London Help to Buy applies to newly built homes worth £600,000 or less and is available to both: first-time buyers and home movers.
  • The Government lends up to 40% of the cost of a new London home; the buyers need to raise a deposit of at least 5% and to secure a 55% mortgage to make up the rest.
  • The equity loan is for a maximum of 25 years of before if the property is sold or mortgage is redeemed.
  • There is no interest charge on the 40% loan for the first five years.  A management fee of £1 a month applies from the date of purchase.  From year six, a fee of 1.75% is payable on the equity loan, which rises annually by RPI (Retail Price Index) inflation plus 1%.

Some of the lenders offering London Help To Buy are Aldermore, Bank of Scotland, Barclays, Halifax, Leeds, Lloyds, Nationwide, NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander, Teachers and TSB.
