Help to Buy scheme: move into your first home with just a 5% deposit*

Make the most of this Government-backed scheme for Help to Buy homes and move into your Redrow new build home with as little as a 5% deposit.* A Help to Buy: Equity Loan is a great incentive that allows you to buy a brand-new home much sooner than you may have been able to otherwise. Find out more information about the Help to Buy property scheme below, or search for your new home with Help To Buy in the search box at the end of the page.

*Help to Buy: Equity Loan, subject to eligibility, terms and conditions.

How does the Help to Buy: Equity Loan work?

• Help to Buy homes: only new build homes qualify.
• You'll need a minimum of 5% deposit to qualify.
• It’s available to first-time buyers purchasing a single property who do not currently own a property in or outside of the UK only.
• The Government will lend you up to 20% of the value of your new home through an equity loan, which can be repaid at any time within 25 years (or on the sale of your home, whichever is sooner).
• Meaning you'll only need to secure up to 75% mortgage from a bank or building society.
• The equity loan is interest-free for the first five years.
• In London, the higher property costs are reflected by a 40% equity loan being offered, meaning you only need to secure a 55% mortgage.
• The price of a Help to Buy house depends on where it is in England.
