Deposit Unlock is being offered on more and more new homes in the UK – but what exactly is this buyer scheme?

While time is running out for first-time buyers to use the government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which is set to close on 31 March 2023, the Home Builders Federation is rolling out its own Deposit Unlock scheme through its member housebuilders. But what does this scheme involve?

The participating lenders are:

  • Nationwide Building Society
  • Newcastle Building Society
