Bancon Homes can assist with buying your new home ranging from helping with your deposit to taking over the burden of selling your present home. We make moving simple.
What is Help to Buy?
The Help to Buy (Scotland) Scheme is a Scottish Government scheme to help you to buy a new build home from Bancon Homes with as little as 5% deposit.
Who is it for?
Help to Buy is available on homes up to the value of £200,000 The ‘Help to Buy Equity Loans’ are available to everyone, whether you’re a first time buyer or an existing homeowner who’s looking to move up the property ladder.
How does it work?
The Government will lend you up to 20% of the value of your new build Bancon home up to the value of £200,000 through an interest free equity loan for five years. This means you’ll only need to secure a 80% mortgage with a 5% deposit.
How do I know if I’m eligible?
In the first instance you will need to contact Bancon Homes or the Sales Consultant at the development that you are interested in. You will then be referred to our independent financial advisors who will put you in touch with one of the agents who administers the scheme so that you can complete an application form and submit this to the agents. The agent will then contact you to let you know if your application is eligible.

Your mortgage lender is likely to require you contribute a deposit of 5% of the full purchase price and your mortgage and deposit must cover a combined minimum 80% of the total purchase price. Your mortgage from a qualifying lender must be a repayment mortgage and you are not permitted to buy a Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme property with an interest-only first mortgage.
