Make the most of the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme. Whether you want to get onto the housing ladder or move up it, you can move home with just a 5% deposit.

How it works

The Help to Buy scheme is available on selected plots across Thakeham developments.

The Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your new home, you will only need a 5% deposit and a mortgage to make up the rest.

A great opportunity for first time buyers who are looking to stop renting and start investing. Now is the time to buy a new build house and to enjoy owning your own home, taking those first steps on the property ladder – we don’t think you will look back!

The Government Help to Buy equity loan is also available to existing homeowners looking to buy a new build home and is available for properties up to £600,000.

Am I eligible?

Equity loans are currently available to first time buyers as well as homeowners looking to move. The home you want to buy must be newly built with a price tag of up to £600,000.

You won’t be able to sublet this home or enter a part exchange deal on your old home. You must not own any other property at the time you buy your new home with a Help to Buy equity loan.

New homeowners share their Help to Buy story with you

A number of Thakeham new homeowners have used Help to Buy – Natalie Harper and her brother bought together in Peacehaven.

Nicky and Rhyan could not believe their luck when they bought a three bedroom new home at Valeside Keep – they didn’t realise that Help to Buy could be used by existing homeowners.
