Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
I concur with that tax experts opinion.
For the Help to Buy Scheme the purchase price must be no more than £600,000. Under this scheme, you can borrow 20% of the purchase price interest-free for the first five years as long as you have at least a 5% deposit. If you live in London, you can borrow up to 40% of the purchase price.
In my opinion I think you are.
Because you proportional ownership of the other property is negligible.
A 1% holding is negligible.
I am sorry. The general opinion is that if you own another property anywhere in the world you are not eligible, but I cannt accept that a mere 1% ownership would preclude you from the scheme.
Thank you for your support.
