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?
