TIP - Get your Help to Buy ISA
If you have not yet done so already you should look to take out a Help to Buy ISA through the Government. You can put in a one off lump sum of £1,000 to start along with your first monthly investment of £200 - remember for each £200 invested the Government contributes £50 towards the purchase of a property.  Click to find out more about the Help to Buy ISA .

What is Help to Buy?

The Government’s Help to Buy Equity Loan initiative in Stockport allows eligible people to buy properties with as little as a 5% deposit. The maximum purchase price of any property you buy is £600,000.

The Government provides you with a loan of up to 20% of the property's purchase price and you have to secure a mortgage for the remaining 75%

For properties in the London area, the London Help to Buy scheme operates. It is broadly the same as the Help to Buy Equity Loan, except the Government provides a loan of up to 40% of the purchase price, to reflect the higher property prices in London, so a mortgage must be secured for the remaining 55% of the purchase price.


You can find out about properties which can be bought using the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme in Stockport by contacting your local Help to Buy agent. You can find out their contact details by enquiring to the Stockport Council, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, Town Hall, Edward Street, Stockport, SK1 3XE, telephone 0161 474 5188.

The Help to Buy initiative also has some specific targeted schemes within it, most notable of which is Armed Forces Help to Buy (click to find out more).

Help to Buy Equity Loan repayments, mortgages and selling your home

When you use the Equity Loan to buy a property in Stockport, no repayments on the Government loan need to be made for 5 years.

The loan is cheaper to finance than it would be on the open market and you only have to get a mortgage for a maximum of 75% of the property’s value. 

That said, the Government has a charge on your property in Stockport, worth up to 20% (40% for London Help to Buy), as well as the mortgage lender’s charge. Until the Government loan is repaid, on sale, the Government will be due up to 20% of on any increase in the property value.

If you would like advice more about the Help to Buy schemes, call 0333 344 3234.
