Help to Buy for Homemovers
With as little as a 5% deposit, the Help to Buy Equity Loan will allow you to borrow 20% of the purchase price, interest-free for the first five years. In the sixth year, you will pay 1.75%, rising annually by the increase (if any) in the Retail Price Index (RPI), plus 1%. For those in the London area, you can borrow up to 40% of the purchase price.
So if you’re pondering over how you might be able to afford your next move, it’s worth reading the rest of this article that looks at the Equity Loan in more depth.

Perhaps your current home hasn’t gone up in value enough to fund the deposit for your next move, or perhaps the price jump between your current home and the new house you want to move into is too high. In which case, the Help to Buy Equity Loan might be just what you need.
The Help to Buy Equity Loan is excellent for those looking to move home into a new build property that is no more than £600,000 (£300,000 in Wales), but who are struggling to find the funds for a deposit.
So if you already own a small property and are looking to move up the ladder and into a new build, the Equity Loan could give you the boost you need to help get you to where you want to be, without having to wait and build up your savings first. Finding the deposit is still the largest challenge many buyers are faced with, and since the scheme started, almost two in ten applicants are already existing homeowners in need of that extra boost to move them up the housing ladder.
