95% Mortgages Are Back!

What’s the backstory?
The government announced today that it will support lenders in offering mortgages with a loan-to-value (LTV) of 95 percent, which are deals for those with a 5% deposit.

What is the significance of this?
Since Covid, many banks and lenders have withdrawn their low-deposit mortgage deals, which are regarded as the riskiest. This meant that many people who wanted those lower-deposit deals were temporarily locked out of purchasing their first home unless they could find more money.

So, can I now have a 95 percent mortgage?
We know that 95 percent mortgages for homes worth up to £600,000 will be available in April from a number of well-known lenders, including HSBC, Barclays, Lloyds, and Natwest, with Virgin Money joining later. They will also be available for all kinds of properties, not just new builds. However, each lender’s loan standards may vary, and your eligibility for these deals will be determined by your personal circumstances.
