Help to Buy Conveyancing
With houses prices and living costs rising too fast for wages to keep up, saving up to buy a home can feel futile.
Not everyone has the financial means to scrape together a deposit or get the huge mortgage required to buy a home nowadays, particularly if you are a single person or you don’t have a family to rely on.
Help to Buy was put in place by the government to help first time buyers get on the housing ladder. Some of the different schemes available include:
- Help to Buy: equity loan scheme – get a government loan of up to 20% of the value of a new build home
- Shared ownership – read more about the shared ownership scheme here
- Help to Buy: ISA – this scheme is only available if you already have an open Help to Buy ISA

2. Give us a call or send us a message
So, give us a call at your nearest branch, or fill in our online enquiry form, and we’ll give you a call back as soon as possible.
3. Let us work our magic
We can be ready to start your conveyancing as soon as you find your dream home or secure a seller. But before we can start acting, we’ll need to get some admin out of the way, such as verifying your identity. You’ll also need time to look over our terms & conditions to make sure you’re happy. So, if possible, get in touch with us a few weeks before you need us.
When you’re ready to instruct us, we’ll also confirm your conveyancing quote in writing. We specialise in fixed fee conveyancing, so you can trust that the price we give you is the price you’ll pay.
If any extra work is needed during your conveyancing transaction (e.g. a problem arises that needs some additional legal attention), we’ll always discuss this with you first, provide an updated quote, and obtain your consent to incur the necessary costs.
How our Help to Buy solicitors can help you
Help to Buy purchases and sales come with unique factors that need special legal attention. For example:
- Before solicitors can exchange contracts on a house, they may need Authority to Proceed from your Help to Buy agent.
- Help to Buy properties are always new builds which require particular enquiries to ensure they’re up to standard, especially if the property hasn’t yet been completed.
- Completing a Help to Buy transaction can be more complex in terms of transfers of funds. There can easily be delays if not managed carefully.
We are well versed in the requirements of Help to Buy conveyancing transactions. We’ll make sure that your home purchase or sale progresses as quickly and efficiently as possible with no unnecessary delays.
