At Metis we build homes for all markets, from first time buyers looking to take their first step on the property ladder to those downsizing who are looking for a more peaceful lifestyle. Help to Buy is available on all of our eligible homes that meet the Government's Help to Buy criteria.
What is Help to Buy?
Help to Buy is equity loan assistance to home buyers from Homes England.
Help to Buy makes new build homes available to all home buyers (not just first time buyers) who wish to buy a new home, but may be constrained in doing so – for example as a result of deposit requirements – but who could otherwise be expected to sustain a mortgage. Up to a maximum of 20% in England and up to 40% in London, of the purchase price is available to the buyer through an equity loan funded by the Government through Homes England.
Help to Buy is available in England from house builders registered to offer the scheme. Help to Buy has been available since 2013. In November 2015, Government announced an extension of the initiative up to 2021 (it may close earlier if all of the funding is taken up before 2021). This guide provides an overview of the product.
