Help to Buy Mortgage Advice in Newcastle Across All Schemes

Following the credit crunch, the government introduced the Help to Buy schemes. These schemes offer a helping hand to buyers struggling to get onto the property ladder. Each scheme works differently; some offer a deposit contribution, whereas others allow applicants to co-own a property. In 2021, the government launched OwnYourHome, a platform that brought all of the current Help to Buy schemes together and introduced a couple more new ones for First Time Buyers.

 

As a Mortgage Broker in Newcastle, we can help you through your Help to Buy journey and talk you through all of the schemes that are currently available. There are many different schemes and some of them may be more beneficial to you than others.

Help to Buy Equity Loan Scheme

Amongst the Help to Buy and OwnYourHome schemes, the Help to Buy Equity Loan is usually the most popular. This scheme helps First Time Buyers make up a total of a 25% mortgage deposit on a new build property.

 

First of all, you will need a minimum of a 5% deposit, although, if you want to increase this amount, you can only go up to a maximum of 20%. You could argue that if you have a 20% deposit, it may be more beneficial to go down the traditional route of applying for a mortgage. The way that this works is that the government loan you the extra portion of the deposit to make up a 25% total. Whatever they loan you, will need to paid back. This total will be interest-free within the first five years of owning the property, and if you have not paid it back within the timeframe, you will begin receiving interest on the total that is left.

How do you qualify for the Help to Buy scheme?

Before you are able to access the Help to Buy Equity Loan, you will need to pass the scheme’s criteria.

 

You can only use the scheme on a new-build property up to a maximum value of £600k. You will also have to be First Time Buyer in Newcastle too.

 

Part of the terms and conditions specify that you should not own any other property i.e. you cannot buy a second home with the help of this scheme. Part-exchange and sub-letting are also not allowed.

Help to Buy Shared Ownership

For the Help to Buy Shared Ownership scheme, you’ll usually be able to purchase 25% or as much as 75% of a home and pay rent on the rest. In some cases, you may be allowed to purchase as little as 10%. If you can’t quite afford to take on a 100% mortgage, this could be the scheme for you in Newcastle.

 

As a Mortgage Broker in Newcastle that regularly deals with Shared Ownership applicants, we usually see that applicants take out a bigger share further down the line. This is normally once the homeowner is settled in, gained an extra source of income or received a pay increase, etc.

Help to Buy Schemes – Do I Qualify?

Remember, you will only need a minimum of a 5% deposit for the Help to Buy Equity Loan and for the Shared Ownership, it will depend on the share that you are planning to take out.

 

There are also other schemes to be aware of, such as the 95% mortgage guarantee scheme, Lifetime ISA and the First Homes scheme. These come under the OwnYourHome umbrella. Like Help to Buy, you will need to qualify for these schemes before you can access them. Some may not be available to you depending on your personal and financial situation.

 

Remember that these schemes were designed to help struggling First Time Buyers get onto the property ladder, not homebuyers who can afford the traditional approach to getting a mortgage.

 

Our team can talk you through these schemes if you would like and talk you through which options could benefit you.

What our customers say

Common mortgage
questions

You will need to have around 5% of the price the new build property in Newcastle is on sale for. The government will then loan (it’s important to remember that this is what this is and you’ll need to pay it back) you up to 20% to the properties value.

Your free mortgage consultation in Newcastle will last approximately about one hour. We will then recommend a mortgage for you, where you have no obligation for you to proceed and then it is your choice whether or not you wish to proceed with the mortgage.

As your Mortgage broker in Newcastle, we will carry out a Fact Find with you to establish your personal & financial needs before we recommend the most suitable mortgage for your circumstances. A credit check will then be required for you to obtain an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, you can then be issued a formal mortgage offer.

To avoid possible disappointment, we would highly suggest that you obtain an Agreement in Principle before you begin viewing a potential new home in Newcastle. At the very latest you should try to obtain one prior to making any offers to help with your bargaining position.

The standard for how long an Agreement in Principle will last is between 30 and 90 days, depending on the lender used. If your Agreement in Principle expires it can be easily refreshed with the help of your advisor.

You may have the option to get a second mortgage on your home in Newcastle for something like debt consolidation or home improvements. It may also be possible for you to take out a mortgage on a second property if you’re looking to potentially use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy-to-Let. If you require the help of a Specialist Mortgage Advisor in Newcastle, we are more than happy to have a chat about your options for a second mortgage.

If you have had credit problems you may still have some options to get a mortgage but this require extra steps, such as being asked to put down a higher deposit than usual, potentially 15% of the property purchase price. If you are having difficulty in trying to obtain a mortgage because of past credit problems, please feel free to get in touch with your Mortgage Broker in Newcastle and we will see how we are able to help!

Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts, you will be able to begin your mortgage process in Newcastle. Most lenders will use a sum of salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage, whereas others are known to use your net profit.

You’ll find that the lenders will usually want to see three payslips from an employee to prove their income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for Self-Employed applicants. You will also need to provide the lender with proof of ID, address and 3 months’ bank statements before they will accept you for a mortgage in Newcastle.

Our free consultation will usually last around an hour or so. Our advisors are able to turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours of your appointment. A formal mortgage offer will on average take about three weeks. Before you know it you will have your mortgage secured in Newcastle.
