Forces Help to Buy
With no-broker fee you will get advice from a team of (ex-military) Mortgage Advisors, who have access to a comprehensive panel, with many High Street and specialists lenders.
The Forces Help to Buy Scheme is available to you, if you’re a regular serviceman or servicewoman in the UK Armed Forces. The Forces Help to Buy scheme could let you borrow up to 50% of your salary to a maximum of £25,000, interest free.
This interest free loan is for buying your first home or moving to another property on assignment or as your family’s needs change. All regular service personnel are eligible who:
- have completed the pre-requisite length of service
- have more than 6 months left to serve at the time they apply
- meet the right medical categories.
However, there may be instances where exceptions to the standard rules may be justifiable, especially where you have extenuating medical and personal circumstances.
You can apply for the loan online through the Joint Personnel Administration (JPA) system and can seek advice on your application through your Pay Office.
Forces Help to Buy is generally paid back over 10 years and interest free. If you have less than 10 years to serve, the remainder will be taken from your gratuity payment on leaving the service.
The Yes Mortgage Services Team are made up of ex-military personnel and understand the pressures servicemen and women are under, in addition to the terminology and banter that comes with service life. We can even read military pay statements!
We have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and were awarded silver status in 2017 for supporting service, ex-service and civilian personnel to get on the property ladder, through mortgage and protection products.
