What is the help to buy scheme

The government has created the Help to Buy scheme to help first-time buyers across the UK  benefit from a government savings-boost to help buy your own home.

The new Help to Buy: ISA pays first-time buyers a government bonus.

For example, save £200 a month and we’ll add £50, up to a maximum of £3,000, boosting your ISA savings of £12,000 to £15,000.
