If you have an existing help to buy ISA, you will be able to use the savings and claim the government bonus provided the purchase price is less than £250,000 (or £450,000 in London) and you have at least £1,600 saved up. If you have a Lifetime ISA (LISA) then the account must have been open for at least a year.
