The Forces Help to Buy scheme allows Regular Serving Personnel to borrow up to 50% of their annual salary to a maximum of £25,000, interest free. This advance may contribute towards a deposit for owning your own home, solicitor’s and estate agent’s fees, and in some extenuating cases to adapt a current property as your family’s needs change.
All regular service personnel are eligible who:
have completed the pre-requisite length of service
are not a reservist or member of the Military Provost Guard 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.
