Help to Buy Valuations
What and Why?
The Help to Buy scheme was introduced by the government to assist those with 5% deposits to get on the housing ladder. The Help to Buy scheme is a shared equity scheme where the Government lends property buyers up to 40% of the property price, interest-free for 5 years.
If you have benefitted from the Help to Buy scheme and are currently in a position to remortgage, with a view to repaying your loan, then a RICS regulated valuation will be required.
Alternatively, if you received a Help to Buy equity loan to purchase your property and you now want sell, you will need to repay your equity loan at the time of sale.
Whether you are re-mortgaging or selling your property, you must instruct a RICS regulated independent chartered valuation surveyor to carry out the valuation.
