Help to buy


With a Help to Buy: Equity Loan the Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your newly built home, so you’ll only need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest.


Help to Buy – Wales provides a shared equity loan to buyers of new-build homes. The scheme supports the purchase of homes up to £300,000 bought through a registered Help to Buy – Wales builder.

Stamp Duty

As a First Time Buyer in England, there's no Stamp Duty on homes up to the value of £300,000, which could save you anywhere up to £5,000. If you're buying one of our homes between £300,000 - £500,000 you will pay 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000.

For example: On a purchase price of £350,000, you’ll pay 0% on the first £300,000 and then pay 5% on the remaining £50,000 – that’s total of £2,500 in Stamp Duty to pay!
