General description
Help to Buy Wales is a £170 million shared equity loan scheme designed to support home ownership, stimulate building activity and provide a boost to the housing sector and wider economy. Under the scheme, loans are available to buyers wishing to purchase a new-build property worth up to £300,000. Help to Buy Wales support is available to all home buyers (not just first time buyers) who wish to purchase a new home, but may be constrained in doing so – for example, as a result of deposit requirements – but who could otherwise be expected to repay a mortgage. A shared equity loan of up to a maximum of 20% of the property purchase price is available. In addition, buyers are required to provide a 5% and will then need to secure a mortgage to cover the remaining balance. All builders (of all sizes) are able to register with the scheme and sell properties through the initiative.

The data shown here are aggregated from the individual transaction records recorded by Help to Buy Wales Ltd, an extract of which is supplied monthly to Welsh Government.

Rounding applied
To avoid the potential disclosure of personal information about any individual, any results based on less than three transactions are suppressed, and represented as an asterisk.

Further, results based on three or more transactions are rounded (to the nearest three in terms of transactions or to the nearest thousand pounds in the case of financial amounts) to remove the potential of disclosure by differencing.

Revisions information
All data for a given time period are initially provisional and subject to minor ongoing revision to account for late submission of completed applications to the transactions database. Generally revisions will not be required after a month or so has elapsed after the end of the given period.

Data prior to the last period that have been revised since previously published are marked in the data with an (r).

Data published before June 2015 has been revised to take into account a change to the definition of first time buyers.
