Take Advantage of Help to Buy

A happy couple embracing after moving into their new house using the help to buy scheme

As BBC News recently revealed, one in three new build properties outside London have been bought through the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which offers a great opportunity for those struggling to get a foot on – or up – the property ladder.

The scheme allows buyers to purchase properties of up to £600,000 with just a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage, whilst the Government will provide a loan of up to 20% which is interest free for the first five years. EPGL has a fantastic choice of properties available through Help to Buy across many of its developments, including The Limes in Radwinter, Woodland Rise in Great Chesterford and Barley Mews in Great Shelford.
