For first time buyers, the biggest hurdle to overcome when buying a house is often the large deposit that’s needed. That’s why the government has introduced the Help to Buy scheme. It’s designed to help more people get on the property ladder and achieve their dream of homeownership.

The Help to Buy scheme allows you to take out an equity loan from the government of 15% of the property value. That means you need to save a deposit of just 5% and you’ll only need an 80% mortgage in total.

There is a wide range of Help to Buy properties in both Leeds and Bradford. We’ve outlined everything you need to know about each area below, to help you make your decision about where to buy your new home.
 

Central

Buying a property in the heart of either city means that you’re right in the centre of all the action. These properties are perfect for first-time buyers.

To the northeast of both cities, you’ll find plenty of charming towns and villages in the miles between Leeds and York, as well as developments on the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Perfect for families, these homes offer great value for money.
