Q: Who is eligible for a NewBuy mortgage?

Any UK citizen or person with indefinite leave to remain who is purchasing a new build property for their main residence is eligible.

By Emma Ann Hughes | Published Jul 26, 2012 | comments

NewBuy is open to all UK buyers of new build residential property – both houses and flats - in England, not just first-time buyers, who have a deposit of between 5 per cent and 10 per cent.

Nobody buying a second home or buying with a buy-to-let mortgage is eligible, neither are shared ownership or shared equity deals.

Properties cannot be purchased for renting, warned Andrew Baddeley-Chappell, head of mortgage strategy and policy on the NewBuy scheme for Nationwide.
