Help to Buy in Manchester | Mortgage Advice in Manchester
Since the introduction of the Government’s Help to Buy schemes back in 2013, the number of First-Time Buyers starting to climb the property ladder has increased. We’re very experienced in this area, we have a team of Help to Buy Mortgage Advisors in Manchester who are available from 8am-10pm, 7 days a week, so if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call.
There are quite a few different Help to Buy schemes available, however, some are more popular than others. There is the Help to Buy Equity loan scheme and the Help to Buy Shared Ownership loan scheme:
How the Help to Buy Equity Loan Scheme Can Help
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. You won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home. You won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home.
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%). The mortgage would be paid off with your share of the money.
How the Help to Buy Shared Ownership Scheme Can Help
This scheme was brought in by the government to allow homebuyers to purchase a percentage of a mortgage then pay the rest back with rent. For example, you could buy a share of a home (which is usually between 25% or 75%) and then you will have to pay rent on the remaining percentage of the property value that you don’t own. This means that you have a share in the property, and this share percentage can be increased at a later date, people usually do this when they have more money.

As your Mortgage Advisor in Manchester, we are here to help you. Get in touch with us today and make a date for your free mortgage consultation.
Your free initial mortgage consultation in Manchester will last roughly one hour. A dedicated advisor will then recommend a mortgage for you, with no obligation to accept and go forward and proceed with the mortgage in question, if you decide that it is not for you.
As trusted Mortgage Advice professionals in Manchester, we will carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we go ahead with recommending the most suitable mortgage for your situation. From there you will be credit checked, which is a requirement to obtain an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, you can be issued a formal mortgage offer.
We recommend you obtain an Agreement in Principle prior to property viewings in Manchester, in order to avoid potential disappointment. At the very latest we would suggest that you obtain one before you make any offers, to put you in a better bargaining position. As a dedicated Mortgage Broker in Manchester, we are typically able to obtain an agreement in principle within 24 hours.
Generally speaking, an Agreement in Principle will last for between 30 and 90 days, depending on the lender that is used. If your Agreement in Principle expires before you can make use of it, it can be easily refreshed by speaking to your advisor.
If you’re looking to achieve something like debt consolidation or home improvements, you may be able to place a second mortgage on your home. If you’re looking to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let, a second mortgage on that property may also be an option.
If you have struggled with credit problems in the past, you may still be eligible for a mortgage, though a lender may possibly require you to put down a higher deposit than expected. This can be something like 15% of the property purchase price.
Submitting at least one year’s accounts moves you along the process, allowing for you to potentially obtain a mortgage in Manchester. Most lenders will utilise your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage amount you are eligible to borrow, whereas some other lenders will go off your net profit.
In order for an employee to prove their income, it’s usually 3 payslips and the last 2 years’ accounts if you are self-employed. You will also need to provide some proof of ID, address and the last 3 months’ bank statements.
The free initial mortgage consultation that we offer generally lasts up to around an hour. We are then able to turn around an agreement in principle within 24 hours of that appointment. A formal mortgage offer takes, on average, somewhere around three weeks.
