Free Event to Get You Moving!
Published on 3 June 2014
On Saturday 7 June 2014, Perthshire Solicitors Property Centre is holding an open event within its St John’s Street premises to talk house-hunters through the new Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme which allows buyers, including first-timers, to clinch a property with as little as a 5% deposit.
The event follows the success of a similar event earlier this year.
Visitors to PSPC will be able to gather some clear-cut financial and mortgage advice and hear from local builders whose homes are available now through Help to Buy, as well as representatives from banks and solicitor firms. Experts from Perthshire house building firms Stephen and GS Brown will attend, along with those from RBS and Santander, as well as PSPC member firm solicitors.
With a 5% deposit, buyers can secure an interest-free loan for up to 20% of the total value of the property. They can also repay the government’s equity stake at any time. Contrary to reports, the scheme does not just apply to new builds, but to all properties as long as it is the applicant’s main residence. The initiative is also open to all buyers, not just first-timers.
The event, which is free and open to all, will be held from 10am until 1pm on Saturday 7 June2014.
