Help To Buy Scheme For First Time Buyers
The Help to Buy (HTB) scheme was introduced in January 2017 to help first-time buyers purchase or self-build a new house or apartment and has been extended to the end of 2024.
The scheme allows first time buyers who purchase a newly built home or plan on building one themselves to claim back up to €30,000 in income tax and DIRT on bank deposit interest paid over the last four years.
This means that first time buyers can now potentially get their full 10% deposit via the scheme and not have to provide any funds themselves.

“I have used Educ Mortgages twice in the past 5 years when buying two different properties and I really cannot recommend them enough. I found them always very professional, knowledgeable, quick to respond with a friendly attitude. They made the process of buying a new home much easier for me and my family and I’m so grateful for their amazing service!”
– N. Vojvodic
"My husband and I availed of the EDUC Mortgages advisory service in the past few months, when buying our first home. Séan, our advisor was fantastic! He made the whole process very straightforward! In addition to being very contactable, he was extremely obliging in assisting and advising us on all areas of our mortgage application in a very friendly and personal manner."
– M. Kenny
"We used EDUC mortgages to apply for our self-build mortgage after having difficulty getting approval with our bank. We found them to be professional, knowledgeable and very efficient. If we had any questions they were always only a phone call away. We are halfway through building our house now and delighted that we decided to go with EDUC Mortgages."
– P. Moroney
"I found working with Sean very straight forward. His knowledge of the current mortgage market was great and he was able to negotiate a good deal for me with Ulster Bank. I would have no problem recommending him to others and have done so already. In fact, colleagues of mine are currently dealing with him."
From the very beginning, Cathal demonstrated a remarkable level of professionalism, knowledge, and dedication to his clients. He patiently explained the intricacies of the mortgage market and the various options available to me. Cathal and his colleague Clodagh promptly responded to my inquiries, kept me updated on the progress, and proactively addressed any potential issues that arose. I always felt informed and supported at every stage of the mortgage application. I would highly recommend EDUC Mortgages to my colleagues and friends.
– C. Hickey
"My husband and I (both INTO members) used Educ mortgages when looking for our self-build mortgage last year. Sean made the whole mortgage process pain free! He was so encouraging and positive. His advice was invaluable. We are now over halfway through the project and hope to move into our beautiful new home during the summer. We have and will continue to recommend Educ mortgages to others."
