Could a Lifetime ISA help you buy your first home?

Lifetime ISA's allow you to invest up to £4,000 in this current tax year towards your first home. For every £4 you save the government will top it up by £1, that's a 25% bonus on the money you pay in every year until you are 50, but it's only for those aged 18-39.

For first-time buyers getting onto the property ladder has never been harder. If you want to start a new life in a home you can call your own, a Lifetime ISA could be a great way for you to save for your deposit that little bit faster.

About your results

The figures are a guide only and we can't guarantee them. They are not a reliable indication of future performance. The amount you get back depends on how the investment grows, stocks and shares can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you paid in. Also, the cost of living generally increases so the final amount may not buy as much in the future as it could now.

We'll send you statements four times a year to show you how your account is coming along.

The results assume amounts for low (2%) mid (5%) and high (8%) annual growth levels. These figures include a deduction of annual management charges of 1% and additional expenses of up to 0.3%. They also include an estimated inflation rate of 2.5%. Calculations are not exact and charges and inflation rates may vary in the future.
