Homebuy properties are purchased with the aid of a Welsh Government funded equity loan. We don’t currently have any new Homebuy properties planned, but we may do in the future.
As a Homebuy purchaser you will need to be able to fund 70% or in some cases 50% of the purchase price of a property usually through a mortgage and we will provide you with a grant financed from the Welsh Government. This is a second charge of the property, and you usually have the chance to re-pay us as and when you are in a position to do so or at point of Sale.
