Help to Buy!
With more and more news about the recovery of the sales market down south, and with signs that the Scottish market is slowly beginning to recovery, The Help to Buy scheme launced in England is now available in Scotland and should help the recovery.
Royal Bank of Scotland are the only lender in Scotland offering a 95% mortgage backed by the government.
RBS are supporting the Government Help to Buy: mortgage guarantee scheme which will open up more mortgages for people with small deposits. So you could buy your home sooner.
What is Help to Buy: mortgage guarantee?
Many credit worthy people are finding it difficult to get a mortgage today because of the large deposits needed following the financial crisis. To help address this, the government has created the Help to Buy: mortgage guarantee scheme to increase the number of low deposit mortgages available for credit worthy households.
How does it work?
Under the scheme, the government offers mortgage lenders the option to purchase a guarantee on mortgages for a new or existing property, where a borrower had a deposit of between 5% - 20%.
How does it benefit me?
If you can afford to repay a mortgage but don't have a large deposit, this scheme will benefit you by giving you access to low deposit mortgages. This means you won't have to wait and save up for a large deposit to buy or move home.
