Help to Buy: Equity Loan

  • Only available on new build homes.
  • The Government will lend you up to 20% of the value of your new property through an equity loan which is interest free for 5 years
  • This means that only a 75% mortgage will need to be secured from a bank or building society.
  • In England, this scheme is available on house purchases up to the value of £600,000.

Next Steps

Whether you can picture your perfect home or keeping your options open – searching for a new home is an exciting time. Why not sign in or join My Redrow to book an appointment online, or speak with one of our friendly sales consultants to discuss your requirements today!

Help to Sell

From old to new in 4 easy steps – and help towards estate agents' fees

What is Help to Sell?

Help to Sell is a great way to make moving home simpler. It enables you to buy a brand new Redrow home, while we take care of selling your current property for you; even helping out with a contribution towards your estate agent's fees. With Help to Sell, we'll arrange the valuations, appoint an estate agent to conduct your home's marketing activity and take the paperwork off your hands too.

Who is it for?

For all homeowners looking for a hassle free way to sell their home. Unlike Part Exchange, Help to Sell covers any home, whether it's a flat, maisonette or ex-council house, whatever the value relative to the price of your new Redrow home. So whether you want to move up, downsize or even step sideways, Help to Sell could be the best move you could make.

How does it work?

Help to Sell helps you move into your brand new Redrow home in four simple steps: 

Step 1 - Choose your new Redrow home
Step 2 - We’ll agree a valuation and marketing plan for your existing property
Step 3 - We will work with the estate agent to achieve a quick sale and contribute towards your fees
Step 4 - Reserve and move into your new Redrow home

What should I do next?

For an easier way to move, talk to a Redrow Sales Consultant today about how Help to Sell can help get you moving.

 


The contribution towards *estate agent's' fees will vary depending on the property being purchased. Please liaise with our Sales Consultants for full details. Please note, if having sold your property through Help to Sell, you decide for any reason you no longer wish to proceed with the purchase of the Redrow home, then you become responsible for the estate agent's fees and costs. If a customer completes on their related sale prior to the completion of their Redrow home they must pay the estate agent fees in full and the Redrow fee contribution will be reimbursed upon legal completion. Subject to build stage.
