- Help to Buy-Wales is a Government-backed shared equity loan scheme launched here in Wales on 2nd January. Its aim is to assist buyers who cannot afford a large deposit to access a mortgage.
- Available to first time buyers and those already on the property ladder the Help to Buy-Wales scheme requires just a 5% deposit and a mortgage of up to 75% of the property value.
- Purchasers pay just 80% of the property price now and the remaining 20% is provided by a Government equity loan which is interest free for the first 5 years which could make the monthly mortgage repayment lower.
- Help to Buy-Wales is available on all new build homes up to the value of £300,000.
