Help to Buy Mortgage Advice in York

Armed Forces Help to Buy Scheme | MoneymanTV

It’s great news for any military personnel! This is because according to Army Families Federation Defence Secretary, Ben Wallace, the current Armed Forces Help to Buy Scheme has been extended until the end of 2022!

It was originally introduced way back in 2014, this £200 million scheme was brought in as a means of helping those in the military to get onto the property ladder. It was meant to go away in December of 2019, but thankfully it stuck around!

How does this help to buy work?  

Eligible military personnel will be able to borrow a deposit that is up to half their annual salary (a maximum of £25,000), without any interest added on. This can either be used to purchase their first home as a first time buyer, or move into a new home.

The best part of using this scheme is that you won’t need to have any current savings in order to get a home. A portion of the money that is raised from the loan can be put towards either your deposit, or something else, such as: 

  • Stamp duty 
  • Estate agent fees 
  • Solicitors fees 

This is amazing for forces personnel and even better yet, the majority of mortgage lenders will accept the loan as your deposit for a new home.

The Forces Help to Buy Scheme is a lot more laid back than other schemes, allowing you to pay back your loan over a period of 10 years. This means you don’t have to feel so rushed and can enjoy life in your new home.

Once before, you may not have thought you could ever own your own home. Times have changed though and so long as you have served your country and can meet the right criteria (length served, service term left and medical categories), you will meet the eligibility criteria for purchasing a home using this scheme.
