HELP TO BUY ISA – CLOSING DATE NOVEMBER 30, 2019

28 June 2019

It can be a real challenge to get onto the property ladder, but there is help on hand with a Help to Buy ISA.

 

This is a high-interest savings account available for people buying their first property and is available at most high street banks and building societies.

 

You can earn up to 2.53% interest tax-free and then the Government will add 25% free cash on top of what you save providing you and the property you purchase meet the qualifying criteria.

 

You will need to make an initial deposit of £1,000. After that you can deposit a maximum of £200 a month.

 

The ISA can be used for a property with a full market value of up to £250,000 or up to £450,000 in London.

 

However, the Government has set a closing date for new applications of November 30, 2019, so please do not delay in taking advantage of this scheme.

 

Provided you open your Help to Buy ISA before then you can keep saving until 2029.
