Finance

Whether you’re buying your first home or an existing homeowner looking for more space, we will guide you through the options available to help buy your new home.

The government backed Help to Buy scheme allows you to secure your new home with a 5% deposit. There are two options to choose from - Equity Loan and Mortgage Guarantee.

Mortgage 95 is a mortgage indemnity scheme which allows you to borrow up to 95% of the purchase price with just a 5% deposit. We will cover the 3.8% indemnity cost. 

With our Assisted Selling Plan, we will organise the sale of your existing home for the best possible price, allowing you to reserve your new home with us. In some cases we will offer to buy your existing home in part exchange.

If you’re struggling to raise the deposit or you’d like to move sooner, ask about our Deposit Option. You provide 10% of the deposit and we could add up to 5%, helping secure your new home faster than expected. 

The recent Stamp Duty reform has divided house prices into different tax bands to make buying a new home more affordable. 

You can also personalise your home with an Optional Upgrade Package. Your Customer Experience Manager will advise on our range of standard and optional upgrades, including wardrobes, kitchen appliances and flooring packages.

Which option is best for you?

We will create a personal selling plan, including a review of the property market in your area and an agreed sale price for your home based on two independent valuations. We will work closely with the nominated estate agent to arrange all viewings and enquiries. All offers will be presented to you, and our Customer Experience Manager will guide you through the negotiation process. 







Once you accept an offer we will track the sale of your home, while you start planning for your brand new one.
 
If your chosen home is ready within a four-month period, we may offer to buy your existing home in part exchange.
