First time buyers

Home and Communities Agency

The government's Home and Communities Agency (HCA) is now offering the Help to Buy Scheme which is equity loan assistance for all home buyers who wish to buy a new home (and not just first time buyers).  Up to a maximum of 20% of the purchase price is available to the buyer through an equity loan funded by the government through the HCA.

The scheme will run from 1 April 2013 until 31 March 2016 (or earlier if all of the funding is taken up).  Help to Buy is available in England from house builders registered to offer the scheme.  The Local Help to Buy Agent covering the Cheshire and Merseyside area is HomesHub, which is part of the Plus Dane Group.  Visit the Help to Buy website
