What is a Help to Buy Remortgage?

The Help to Buy scheme was a scheme put in place by the government to help first time buyers and home movers in purchasing their dream home. The Help to buy equity loan scheme meant that you took a loan from the government for up to 20% of the property value. The equity loan was interest free for the first 5 years but then interest starts to be payable and increases each year going forwards from the 5 years. If you initially purchased your home through the Help to Buy equity loan scheme, it is important to speak to a specialist mortgage broker when you remortgage to check all of your options.
