Helping you buy

Helping you buy

Whether you’re a first-time buyer or need some help selling your existing property, we’re here to make your move to an Autograph Home easier and more affordable.

Help to Buy

Help to Buy is a government scheme designed to help first time buyers, or existing homeowners, with the cost of a deposit on a new-build home.

With Help to Buy: Equity Loan, the Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your new home, so you can get a 75% mortgage with as little as a 5% deposit up front - plus you won’t be charged loan fees for the first five years of owning your home.

So, for instance, for a £400,000 property, you pay a £20,000 deposit, take out a mortgage for £300,000, and the government loans you the balance of £80,000. The scheme applies to newly built properties only with a value of up to £600,000.

Signature Move 

Our Signature Move service makes selling your existing property easier. If you reserve a new Autograph Home, we’ll arrange for an estate agent to value your property, agree a selling price, organise viewings and manage the whole process on your behalf. Then, when everything’s done and dusted, we’ll even pay the estate agent’s fees.

Part Exchange

If you’re ready to move to your new Autograph Home, there’s no need to wait until you sell your existing property. If your current home meets the conditions for Part Exchange, we’ll buy it from you at a fair market price, confirmed by three local agents. You don’t have to worry about complicated chains and you won’t have to pay agents’ fees. When your new home is ready, so are you.

Home Reach

Home Reach, from Heylo, gets you on the property ladder earlier. With Home Reach, you can buy a share of your chosen new home, and then pay a low monthly rent on the part you don’t buy. As you decide on the size of the share you buy, you have the freedom to buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive home.

To start with, you can purchase up to 75% of your home with either cash savings or by taking out a mortgage, and Heylo will become your landlord for a 125-year lease. You move in right away and make the home your own, paying a monthly rent of 2.75% of the unsold value on the remaining share.

Then, if you wish, you can purchase more of your property over time, until you own the property outright and stop paying rent altogether.
