Halifax Intermediaries has set deadlines for all Help to Buy 2 applications and completions.
The lender will take applications until 8pm on 31 December. Help to Buy 2 completions now have a 31 May 2017 deadline.
Brokers were informed yesterday and the changes take place today.
Halifax Intermediaries is setting the deadlines following the news from the Treasury in September that the Help to Buy 2 scheme will close by the end of the year.
A Halifax Intermediaries spokeswoman says: “We remain committed to supporting first-time buyers on to the property ladder by helping ensure existing customers have enough time to complete. We will review individual cases up until the end of June.”
