Introduction

Governments have a habit of bringing in headline grabbing legislation but for the conveyancer this results in the need to learn yet more formalities, details and form filling let alone being equipped to answer the inevitable questions from your clients.

There are several schemes currently operating and you need to have at least a basic familiarity with all of them.

The 2018 Budget announced the extension of the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme until 2023 (on certain conditions) - this is expected to help around 120,000 UK families buy a new build home by then, another 25000 having already benefited from these loans.

Help to Buy may ‘make the dream of owning your own home a reality…’ but for the conveyancer of course there is a different reality - that of becoming familiar with the procedures, rules and timing and getting to grips with a forest of paperwork - and getting it right!
