Saving Scheme for first time buyers

image

The deal is only available to First Time Buyers over the age of 16 and not available if you have had any interest in a property before.  The property must cost £250,000 or less unless buying in London then it is £450,000 or less.  You are also unable to open a Help to Buy ISA if you have opened or contributed into a Cash ISA in the same tax year

 

In the first month you can deposit up to £1,200 and then up to £200 per month thereafter.  For every £200 you pay in the government will pay in a further £50.

 

The maximum which you can receive from the government is £3,000, with you paying in a total of £12,000.  The government contribution will only be paid when you purchase a property and if you save a minimum of £1,600, your solicitor will need to apply for this when carrying out the conveyancing work.
