Help to Buy – Wales
Our overarching priority is to increase the supply of housing in Wales. As part of this work, Help to Buy – Wales (external link) has been launched. This is a £170 million shared equity loan scheme designed to support home ownership, stimulate building activity and provide a welcome boost to the housing sector.
Help to Buy - Wales shared equity loans are now available to potential homebuyers. All builders – large and small – are able to register with the scheme. Help to Buy – Wales is due to end on 31 March 2016.
Help to Buy – Wales: Shared Equity Loan
Help to Buy – Wales is our initiative to help first time buyers and existing home owners purchase a new-build home up to a value of £300,000 with as little as a 5% deposit.
It applies to all eligible buyers in Wales. Builders can also register to participate.
Lesley Griffiths announces extension of Help to Buy – Wales
Communities and Tackling Poverty Minister, Lesley Griffiths, has announced the extension of the successful Help to Buy – Wales shared equity scheme.
The £170 million scheme is providing a welcome boost for buyers and builders alike by making home-ownership easier for people who have struggled to secure large cash deposits. To date, Help to Buy – Wales has enabled 1,200 people in Wales buy their home and has received the backing of over 170 builders.
Lesley Griffiths said:
"We want Wales to be a nation where everyone has access to a high quality, safe and affordable home and have been working the construction industry to increase the supply of new homes in Wales.
"Over the past year, Help to Buy - Wales has become an important factor in stimulating the construction of new market housing in Wales through the support it offers to people purchasing those homes.
"In order to build on this success, I am today setting out the Welsh Government’s intention to extend the Help to Buy – Wales scheme."
The precise details of the extended scheme will be confirmed after the next Spending Review.
