The national Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme ended on 31st March 2023 and is no longer available.

This initiative was one of a range of government schemes introduced to help first-time buyers and those struggling to compete financially in a vastly competitive housing market.

Shared ownership continues to be an option available for first-time purchasers, or those with limited incomes.

For those who purchased their home through the Help to Buy scheme and are now looking to sell or remortgage their property, we have the experience and expertise to support you through the necessary legal process.

This will involve you repaying all or part of your Help to Buy: Equity loan by undertaking a number of steps to complete the government’s repayment application process, full details of which are available on GOV.UK

Once this process is complete and an administration fee paid, the Help to Buy Customer Service team will issue a redemption (repayment) letter and the legal agreement can be formalised. Our Residential Property team are vastly experienced in helping our clients complete this process with the Help to Buy scheme and help you pay repay what’s required.

To find out more about the process and how we can help, please call us on 01603 620508 or get in touch via the contact form below.
