Subject to eligibility, terms and conditions. 

You must buy your home from a homebuilder registered for Help to Buy: Equity Loan. After selecting the plot of your choice, you’ll pay a £200 reservation fee at which point you will receive free mortgage advice. A specialist will then help you through your application.
