Green Mortgages

A green mortgage specifically targets “green” energy efficient homes.

The incentive for buying a “green” property is some lenders view this as a positive step and can mean you have access to a preferential mortgage borrowing rate. An energy efficient home can also mean reduced running costs . Terms and conditions apply.
Climate change is a real issue and this has not been lost on the housebuilding industry, who are always looking to make new build homes more energy efficient.

95% Mortgage Guarantee

This scheme is available to first time buyers and current homeowners, enabling them to secure a mortgage with a 5% deposit on a house up to the value of £600,000. This scheme is available to new builds and second hand properties. Under this new scheme, the government guarantees the last proportion of the mortgage over 80%.
Meaning on a 95% mortgage, the government guarantees the last 15%  of the mortgage so they will compensate your lender should the mortgage fall into arrears.

Deposit Unlock

Deposit Unlock is a new scheme to help buyers, both first time and home movers, to buy a new build home with only a small deposit.

There are a number of Housebuilders participating and a limited number of participating mortgage lenders (currently Newcastle Building Society, Accord and Nationwide).
The scheme is aimed at helping buyers to purchase a new build home with a small deposit gives you access to additional 95% mortgages on new build properties.
It “replaces” the Help to Buy scheme that will come to an end in 2023, which allows first time buyers to purchase a new build home with a 5% deposit.

Low-cost Initiative for First Time Buyers (LIFT)

The LIFT scheme aims to help those people on low to moderate incomes, who can demonstrate they can’t buy a new build house or purchase an affordable new build home from a council or housing association, without help.
Although buyers will own the property outright, the shared equity interest in the purchase will be covered by a standard security on their property.
Applicants fund the majority share of their purchase and own the property outright, with the Scottish Government retaining the remaining share of the property under a shared equity agreement.
For example, the buyer pays for 70% of their new home, the Scottish Government will then pay for and hold 30% of the share in the  property, with the opportunity to increase their share in the future.
