Low Deposit Mortgages

With house prices continuing to rise and the majority of lenders asking for a deposit of at least 10%, for many people the dream of owning their own home has never seemed so out of reach. However, a new government-backed mortgage scheme, introduced in April, could make the dream a little step closer.

The aim of the mortgage guarantee scheme is to help first time buyers or current homeowners secure a mortgage with just a 5% deposit on a property up to the value of £600,000. The scheme is designed to allow people to get the first step on the property ladder without having to find a large lump sum.

It was also introduced with the intention of giving those who could afford mortgage repayments but not the larger deposits the chance to buy a new or bigger home. As part of the scheme, the government will offer lenders the guarantee they need to provide mortgages that cover the other 95%, subject to the usual affordability checks, therefore “guaranteeing” 80% of the property price to the lender.
