Forces Help to Buy Scheme (FHTB) in Leeds Explained

Forces Help to Buy Mortgage Advice in Leeds

Originally introduced back in 2014, this £200 million scheme was intended to boost anyone from the forces who needed help buying a home. The project was meant to end in December 2019.

As a thank you to everyone’s commitment to their Queen and country, the Government has now made this an enduring policy.

Who Can Apply For Forces Help To Buy Scheme?

People who have served in the military have access to borrow a deposit of up to half their annual salary (a maximum of £25,000), interest-free. This can be used to either purchase their first home purchase or to move into a new home.

The most satisfying part is that you don’t need any current savings to get onto the property ladder. The money gets raised from the loan you’ll receive via the scheme can be used to put towards your deposit or other costs, such as:

  • Stamp duty 
  • Estate agent fees
  • Solicitors fees 

In fantastic news for forces personnel, a large majority of lenders will accept the loan towards the deposit for a new home. More relaxed than some other schemes, the Forces Help to Buy loan can be paid back over 10 years, so you don’t have to feel rushed.

Whether you thought you had a chance or not, you are eligible to purchase your home using this scheme, only if you have served your country and can meet the right criteria (length served, service term left and medical categories).
