HTB Equity Loan - Apply Online.jpg

The way you access a Help to Buy agent is changing 

From 2 January 2020, you will be able to apply for help to buy schemes from one of three agents across England. This means our current Help to Buy agents’ services will shortly be replaced. 

The changes should not affect your house purchase. 

If you are buying a new home using a Help to Buy: Equity Loan, we will automatically transfer everything to your new agent, so that they can continue to support your equity loan application and house purchase. 

If you have any questions, please get in touch. 

 

Between 16 December 2019 and 2 January 2020, we are unable to accept applications for affordable home ownership. From 2nd January 2020 you will be able to apply for OPSO, Shared Ownership and Shared Ownership Resales as normal. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Help to Buy

If you are applying for Help to Buy you will need to have reserved a property before you apply, as we require the details of the property you are going to purchase. You can then complete the Property Information Form (PIF) and submit this to us, along with your reservation form.

We require you to print and sign the PIF and either email or post this to us. You must also complete a Direct Debit Form (available below) for the £1 per month management fee you will pay if accepted onto the scheme. This will be emailed to you once you complete your application online. Your application process won’t start until we receive signed copies of all these forms. Applying online is the quickest way to get a decision - watch our video below to find out how:
