Find your local Help to Buy agent

Your local Help to Buy agent can guide you through the options available and explain the eligibility and affordability criteria. Help to Buy agents are appointed by Homes England.

Help to Buy agents administer the Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme but not the mortgage guarantee scheme. They have the authority to give the go-ahead for you to purchase a home with help from the equity loan scheme. The agents make other key decisions during the purchase process. For the Help to Buy: Mortgage Guarantee, please contact the participating lenders directly.

How you access a Help to Buy: Equity Loan is changing

From 2 January 2020, you can apply for an equity loan from one of three Help to Buy agents appointed to provide the scheme in England. They will support with your application for an equity loan.

Help to Buy agents offer support and guidance about equity loans and how to purchase your new build property. Agents offer support based on the geographical area that they cover.

What this means for you:

Depending on when you are due to complete your house purchase you may not be affected by any of the changes we are making.

If you are due to complete your house purchase before the end of December 2019, nothing changes. You will continue to receive support from your existing Help to Buy agent to complete the house buying process.

If your completion date has changed or you are due to complete from January 2020, we will automatically pass your details to the new agent to ensure your purchase continues to go through.
