Government NewBuy Scheme
The Government backed NewBuy scheme makes 95% mortgages widely available.
With NewBuy, you only need to put down 5% deposit to buy your dream new home. The NewBuy scheme is open to you if you are a first time buyer or existing home owner, providing that you have a minimum 5% deposit. NewBuy is available on new build homes in England, which can be purchased for £500,000 or less.
First Buy Equity Loans are another alternative where 20% of the cost is covered by an equity loan funded by the government and the house builder.
