Help to Buy mortgage guarantee
Help to Buy will dramatically cut the time it takes for aspiring homeowners to achieve their homebuying goal.
We expect to help 25,500 homebuyers in the next three years. With an average mortgage of £140,000, the total lent by RBS and NatWest is likely to exceed £3.5bn.
Some people we interviewed about trying to buy a home have been trying to get onto the housing ladder for years, while others depend on help from their parents to save for a deposit.

Guarantee backed mortgages
RBS and NatWest are among the first mortgage lenders to offer guarantee backed mortgages from the start of the scheme. We offer a range of competitive 95% mortgages only available to first and next time buyers through Help to Buy.

“We are committed to helping as many people as possible across Britain to get on with their lives, to buy their first home, to move to a bigger house as their family grows. That’s why RBS fully support the Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme.”
It’s often said that when the US sneezes the world catches a cold, in matters of to the economy at least. The past week may go down as the one where the world realised that it can catch a cold from China too. The good news? Last week’s events have been fought off. The bad news? China’s difficult period has a long way to go.
