The help to buy scheme explained

The Help to Buy scheme was started by the government in 2013 to support people looking to buy property, either by providing equity loans, mortgage guarantees or cash bonuses to special Help To Buy ISAs, amongst various other services. It is particularly useful for people who might not possess enough capital for a deposit on a property, as with Help To Buy you only need 5% of a property’s value as a deposit. It is often used by first-time buyers as a means to get on the property ladder, many of whom are purchasing new build properties.
