Eligible deposits with UK institutions are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme up to a maximum level of protection of £85,000 per person per institution.

Open: the Help to Buy: ISA is available from a range of banks and building societies.

The accounts are available to each first time buyer, not each household. This means that if you are planning to buy with your partner, for example, you could receive a government bonus of up to £6,000 towards your first home.

Save: save up to £200 a month into your Help to Buy: ISA. To kickstart your account, in your first month, you can deposit a lump sum of up to £1,200.

The minimum government bonus is £400, meaning that you need to have saved at least £1,600 into your Help to Buy: ISA before you can claim your bonus. The maximum government bonus you can receive is £3,000 – to receive that, you need to have saved £12,000.

Receive bonus: when you are close to buying your first home, you will need to instruct your solicitor or conveyancer to apply for your government bonus. Once they receive the government bonus, it will be added to the money you are putting towards your first home. The bonus must be included with the funds consolidated at the completion of the property transaction. The bonus cannot be used for the deposit due at the exchange of contracts, to pay for solicitor’s, estate agent’s fees or any other indirect costs associated with buying a home.

Most first-time buyers will be eligible for the scheme, provided they truly are first-time buyers and don’t own property anywhere else (find out more about the scheme here), and a lot of savings providers are offering suitable accounts. Below is a list of the top Help to Buy ISAs currently available, and as an added bonus, because they’re ISAs, all the interest you earn will be entirely tax-free*!

*Tax advantages will depend on your circumstances and may change in the future.
