Help to buy

a helping hand to buy your new home

At Metis Homes we build homes for all markets, from first time buyers looking to take their first step on the property ladder to those downsizing who are looking for a more peaceful lifestyle.

Help to Buy is available on all of our eligible homes that meet the Government's Help to Buy criteria.

What is Help to Buy?

It’s a scheme backed by the government to help more people buy a new home. It allows you to buy a new home with just a 5% deposit.
You fund 80% of the purchase price through a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. Homes England, the government agency, provides you with a five year interest free equity loan for the remaining 20%. Best of all, you own 100% of your home.

Help to Buy is available to ALL buyers purchasing their own home* – not just first time buyers – on properties priced up to £600,000.
As with all loans, buyers are assessed for eligibility and affordability.

*The Help to Buy Equity scheme has specific terms and conditions as prescribed by Homes England.  For more information visit: www.helptobuy.gov.uk

What are the loan conditions?

Your loan is interest free for the first five years. After that, you pay an annual fee of 1.75% in the sixth year. Thereafter, the annual fee is fixed in line with the Retail Price Index, plus 1%. The RPI may of course go up or down. Please note this is not the same as the interest rates that govern mortgage repayments.

The loan must be repaid within 25 years or earlier if you sell your home. There is the option to make earlier repayments.

Metis Homes is delighted to offer the Help to Buy scheme on all our properties, making it easier than ever to buy one of our high quality new homes.

How does it work?

Enter a property price in our Help to Buy calculator to work out your contribution.

For example...

Property Price = £400,000
Deposit (5%) = £20,000
Government Loan (20%) = £80,000
Mortgage Required (75%) = £300,000

Not eligable?

If you are not eligible for the scheme, we will refund your reservation fee in full.

You should then arrange a repayment mortgage to cover 75% of the purchase cost. We can refer you to an independent financial advisor who will help you find a suitable mortgage.
Your 5% deposit is payable on exchange of contracts.
Finally, move in and enjoy living in your beautiful new home.

Help to Buy is available in England from house builders registered to offer the scheme. Help to Buy has been available since 2013. In November 2015, Government announced an extension of the initiative up to 2021 (it may close earlier if all of the funding is taken up before 2021). This guide provides an overview of the product. If you’d like to know more, or if you want to apply, please contact your Local Help to Buy Agent www.helptobuy.org.uk

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or any debt secured on it.

*Subject to status, Help to Buy Terms and Conditions are available on selected properties in England only. Eligible applicants will be offered an equity loan of up to a maximum of 20% of the purchase price (based on the open market value). Applicants are required to fund at least 80% of the purchase price by means of a conventional mortgage, savings/deposit where required. The equity loan is provided by Homes England and held as a second charge. This offer is not available in conjunction with any other promotion. Full details will be provided on request.
