Forces Help to Buy

Buying a property in any circumstance can be a challenging and daunting experience, especially if you're serving in the armed forces.


How we can help you

The Forces Help to Buy scheme let you borrow the equivalent of half your annual salary (up to a maximum of £25,000) to assist with the deposit and costs of buying a home.

Whether you’re a first-time buyer or you’re moving home, it pays to work with an expert who understands the scheme. We’ve worked with many service personnel to help them to make the most of Forces Help to Buy and we know the scheme inside out. We’ll work with you to get you the finance you need to buy the home you want.

And, along with our bespoke mortgage advice, we’ll guide you through the buying process, making sure you feel like you have someone alongside you every step of the way.

Fee-free* mortgage advice – we will not charge you a penny. We’re fee-free* and always will be
Whole of market – we compare 1000s of products to find the one that is best suited to your needs
Taking the weight off your shoulders – we liaise with your lender, solicitor, and estate agent so you don’t have to do any of the heavy lifting
* Our fee-free residential mortgage advice is subject to a minimum loan size of £75,000. In the instance of loan amounts below £75,000 we will need to charge an administration fee of £295
