Shared Equity Homebuy can help you by providing a loan for up to 20% of the cost of your home. You will only need to provide a 5% deposit and a then obtain a 75% mortgage to make up the difference.
A Shared Equity Homebuy loan can help to boost the size of your deposit which could make it easier for you to purchase a suitable property in the area that you wish to buy. Subject to eligibility this loan is available for properties on the open market.
In the example, if you wanted to buy a property worth £250,000 Parity Trust would provide a loan of £50,000. You would just need a 5% deposit of £12,500 and then obtain a mortgage of £187,500 from another provider for the remaining part.
The amount you owe is linked to the property value so an independent valuation will be required at the outset and when you sell. There is a collar in place which means if you sell and your property price has fallen you will still need to pay back the amount you borrowed.
You are able to make additional lump sum payments or pay the loan off early without penalty — terms and conditions apply. For further details please contact us on 023 9237 5921 or you can enquire online using the form below.
