Lifetime ISA Explained in Hull

Mortgage Advice in Hull

As a Mortgage Broker in Hull, we are often asked about lifetime ISAs, however, it’s rare for applicants to actually know what they are. People tend to get this scheme mixed up with the Help to Buy ISA, they are similar but there are some differences.

Here is all the information that you need to know about the Lifetime ISA and how it could be right for you:

Lifetime ISA Explained UK | MoneymanTV

What is a Lifetime ISA?

To put it simply, a Lifetime ISA is a savings account where your money grows tax-free. On top of whatever you save, the government will give you an extra 25% bonus. Sounds great right…?

Of course, there’s a catch though; there is a maximum to how much you can save each year and it’s only £4,000. On the other hand, this means that the 25% bonus you would receive would be an extra £1,000.

Where can I use my savings?

The proceeds of your account can be used for two different things. Firstly, the Lifetime ISA can be used to buy your first property. So, if you are a First Time Buyer in Hull and are looking to hold off your First Time Buyer mortgage journey for a little while longer, a Lifetime ISA could be for you.

Secondly, you can use a Lifetime ISA as savings for later in life, however, as we are a Mortgage Broker in Hull, we only see clients who are using the ISA as their deposit for their first home. So if you are wanting to save for later in life, you can find more information here on the government’s official webpage: https://www.gov.uk/lifetime-isa.

Are there any restrictions?

In order to qualify for the Lifetime ISA, you must meet some certain requirements:

  • The property that you are buying must cost £450,000 or less
