Help to Buy Mortgage Advice in Leicester
Across All Schemes

As a Mortgage Advisor in Leicester, it is our job to explore and explain the different schemes available to you. Before we look into the Help to Buy schemes, we will research the possibility of you getting accepted for a standard mortgage with a 5% deposit and discuss these options with you until we find the most suitable way forward for your personal situation.


Help to Buy commonly applies for First Time Buyers in Leicester who are looking for that extra bit of help in order to make that first step onto the property ladder in a newly built home. There are various schemes that come under the Help to Buy umbrella, in our experience the two most popular options are the Help to Buy Equity Loan and Help to Buy Shared Ownership.

Help to Buy Equity Loan

The Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme is one of the more popular options, allowing you to receive a loan from the government of up to 20% of the cost of your newly built home. You will also need a 5% cash deposit on top of this 20%, leaving you a 75% mortgage to pay off. You will not receive any interest fees on this 20% across the first five years of you having ownership of this newly built home. Although, if you have not paid off this 20% by the end of these five years, you will be charged interest on the loan until you pay it off.

Help to Buy Shared Ownership

Help to Buy Shared Ownership scheme, you can usually buy as little as 25% or as much as 75% of a home and pay rent on the rest.  If you can’t quite afford the mortgage on 100% of a home, Help to Buy: Shared Ownership offers you the chance to buy a share of your home (again, typically between 25% and 75% of the home’s value) and pay rent on the remaining share. Later on, you could buy bigger shares when you can afford to.

What our customers say

Common mortgage

You will need to put forward at least 5% of the sale price of your new build property in Leicester. The Government will then loan you an additional 20% of the value of the property to make this up to 25%. You must remember though, that this is absolutely just a loan and you will need to pay this back eventually.

Your free mortgage consultation in Leicester will last for about one hour. Your advisor will then recommend a mortgage for you and you can decide whether or not you wish to go ahead with it.

As your Mortgage Broker in Leicester, we will carry out a Fact Find to determine your needs prior to recommending a mortgage that is the most appropriate. A credit check is then required for an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.

We recommend that you obtain an Agreement in Principle ahead of viewing properties in Leicester, to avoid any potential disappointment. At the very latest we believe you should obtain one prior to making an offer to help with your bargaining position

An Agreement in Principle will usually last for between 30 and 90 days depending on the Lender. If your Agreement in Principle expires it can always be refreshed with the assistance of your mortgage advisor.

You may possibly be able to get a second mortgage on your home for debt consolidation or Home Improvements. The usage of a second mortgages extends to using it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let in Leicester.

If you have had problems with your credit, you can still get a mortgage, however, you may need to put down a higher deposit than usual, often 15% of the purchase price.

You are able to get a mortgage once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts. Most Lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage amount you can borrow, whereas others go off your net profit.

To prove your income amount, it’s usually the latest three payslips for an employee and the latest 2 years’ accounts for self-employed. On top of this, you will need to produce proof of ID, address and 3 months’ bank statements.

Our free consultation will usually lasts up to an hour or so. Your mortgage advisor can turn around an agreement in principle within 24 hours of this consultation and a formal mortgage offer takes about three weeks on average in Leicester.
