Help to Buy Mortgage Advice in Bristol
Across All Schemes

It can be a big challenge entering into property ownership without seeking Mortgage Advice in Bristol. Our team is here waiting to answer your calls to help guide you throughout the whole Home Buying Process, and whatever hurdles we should meet along the way.  We’re with you from your initial enquiry right through to you getting your keys and moving in.


Help to Buy Mortgage Advice in Bristol

The Help to Buy Equity Loan Scheme got designed to help both First Time Buyers in Bristol and Home Movers buy a new home, with a 5% deposit.


Help to Buy Equity Loans | Important facts:

You put down a deposit of at least 5%. The government lends you up to 20% of the property’s value as an equity loan. Next, you take out a mortgage on the rest of the property’s value.  So if your deposit was 5% and your equity loan was 20%, you’d then take out a 75% mortgage


Help to Buy | Want to know if you qualify?

We’ll help you with this. Help to Buy Equity loans are only available on new build homes up to the value of £600k. Both home movers and first-time buyers qualify.


You mustn’t own any other property at the time you buy your new home with a Help to Buy Equity Loan. Also, subletting and part-exchange is not allowed. We can provide Help to Buy Mortgage Advice in Bristol, as well as help with solicitors and surveys etc.


We’ll be able to let you know if you qualify for this scheme and explain it to you adequately to make sure you understand what you’re entering. Additionally, we’ll let you know if you qualify for a mortgage and how much your repayments will be.


Example: for a home with a £200,000 price tag:


Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme Example


If the home in the example above sold for £200,000, you’d get £160,000 (80%, from your mortgage and the cash deposit) and you’d pay back £40,000 on the loan (20%). You’d need to pay off your mortgage with your share of the money.


It’s very important that you fully understand how this scheme works and the future options here. This is why speaking to your local Mortgage Broker in Bristol will be highly beneficial.

  • This makes it possible to buy a home with just a 5% deposit whilst Help to Buy Shared Ownership deposits are typically much lower than buying traditionally.
  • 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.

What our customers say

Common mortgage

Our free consultation typically lasts up to an hour or so. We can turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours. A formal mortgage offer takes about three weeks on average.

It’s usually three payslips for an employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for Self Employed. You will also need to produce proof of ID, address, and 3 months’ bank statements.

Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts, you can get a mortgage. Most Lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage, whereas others are known to go off your net profit.

If you have had credit problems, you can still get a mortgage, but you may be required to put down a higher deposit than usual, perhaps 15% of the property purchase price.

It may be possible to get a second mortgage on your home for things like debt consolidation or Home Improvements. It may also be possible to take out a mortgage on a second property if you want to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home, or a Buy to Let.

An Agreement in Principle typically lasts for between 30 and 90 days, depending on the Lender used. If your Agreement in Principle expires, it can always get refreshed.

To avoid possible disappointment, we recommend to our customers you obtain an Agreement in Principle before you begin viewing properties in Bristol. At the very latest you should obtain one prior to making an offer to assist your bargaining position.

As your mortgage broker in Bristol, we carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we recommend the most suitable mortgage for you. A credit check gets required for an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.

Your free mortgage consultation in Bristol will last around one hour. We will then recommend a mortgage for you with no obligation for you to proceed and you can decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the mortgage.

You will need to have at least 5% of the sale price of your new build property in Bristol. The Government will then loan you up to 20% to the property value.
