Housebuilder’s Yorkshire Homes Offered With Help To Buy

Posted 12 January 2021 by Keith Osborne

Barratt Developments is offering a range of homes around Yorkshire which can be purchased via the new Help To Buy scheme...

Help To Buy has been a very popular scheme since its original launch in 2013, and Yorkshire and the Humber has been one of the regions using it the most. With the scheme re-launching in April this year, one major housebuilder is already offering an impressive range of home available with the government-backed initiative.

Unlike the scheme in its original form, from 1 April 2021 it is only available to first-time buyers and there are price caps per region – in the case of Yorkshire and the Humber, the maximum price that can be purchased using Help to Buy is £228,100. Like the original scheme, the buyer will be provided with an equity loan by the government of 20% of the full price and needs a deposit of only 5% of the price and a mortgage for 75% – so savings and income can be much lower than is required to buy without Help to Buy. Moreover, the loan is interest-free for the first five years.

Barratt Developments was WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the Year in 2019 and under its brands Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes has a wide array of brand new homes for sale that qualify for Help to Buy across the Yorkshire and the Humber region.
