Owning Your Dream Home Sooner: Unveiling the Benefits of 95% Mortgages and How a Mortgage Broker Can Help

For many aspiring homeowners, the biggest hurdle is saving a substantial deposit. This is where 95% mortgages, also known as high loan-to-value (LTV) mortgages, come in. However, securing one requires careful consideration and often the guidance of a skilled mortgage broker.pen_spark

95% mortgages are back and this is good news for all first-time buyers with a smaller deposit who’re looking to get onto the property ladder with a 5% deposit.

With a deposit at this level, you can move away from renting or living with family as soon as possible and have your very own place you can call home.

What is a 95% mortgage?

A 95% mortgage, also known as a 95% loan-to-value (LTV) mortgage, is a mortgage to purchase a property with a small deposit (at least 5% but less than 10% deposit of the purchase price).

Your deposit is the amount of money that you need to put into the mortgage to make up 100% of the final purchase price.

You still require the income and good credit score to borrow the remaining 95% so you can buy your new home.

Working with Paul has been a hugely positive experience. Paul took the time to understand our needs and financial situation, ultimately securing us a mortgage deal that we would not have been able to obtain on our own. His guidance and patience over an extended time was invaluable in guiding us through a volatile period in the property market. I highly recommend working with Paul at Your Property Financial.

It has been great working with Paul. He helped us to redeem our help to buy equity loan which didn't seem possible to me when I first contacted him. It took much longer than expected due to many obstacles but Paul explained every step of the process very clearly and he regularly communicated with me to ensure the remortgage went through as efficiently as possible. I would definitely recommend working with Your Property Financial.
I would highly recommend Paul as a mortgage broker. As a first time lone buyer I began the process feeling very out of my depth, particularly in a market where mortgage rates are very high. But from the get go Paul provided reassurance and practical guidance and has been immensely helpful throughout the process. I've really appreciated his responsiveness, honesty and support.

I reached out to Paul 2 years ago and giving this review now because I wanted to ensure that I could give a true review of what benefits I have experienced from using his service. I am thrilled with the financial expertise given to me by Paul. His skillful negotiation secured me an excellent mortgage rate within a short turn around time. This has not only set me on the path to paying off my principal balance but has also allowed me to simultaneously build a solid emergency fund. His initial guidance has been invaluable in shaping my financial future. I look forward to working with Paul again, once my 5 year plan is near its end. Highly recommended!

Paul has been consistently excellent, ensuring we got the best possible mortgage deal at a time when rates weren't great. Paul worked with us to understand our financial complexities and went above and beyond to ensure they were understood by mortgage providers. We've been made to understand every stage of the process, and as first time buyers we were able to feel confident in the decisions we made. I would highly recommend working with Paul at Your Property Financial.
My almost a year-long journey with Paul as my broker has been truly amazing, despite a few hiccups during the mortgage process. Working with him has been the best decision ever! As a first-time buyer, I lacked knowledge about purchasing a home, but Paul's guidance and expertise were outstanding. He explained things in a clear and concise way. What impressed me the most was Paul's responsiveness. He promptly addressed all my questions and concerns, never making me feel like a bother. Even when I faced challenges, Paul's determination and problem-solving skills were unwavering. I felt so supported throughout the entire process. Thanks to Paul's unwavering support, I managed to reach this point. I highly recommend him to anyone, especially fellow first-time buyers. Paul's knowledge, patience, and reliability are unmatched. He's not just a broker; he's an invaluable ally in this complex process. Thank you, Paul!

How does a 95% mortgage work?

A 95% mortgage enables you to borrow up to 95% of the purchase price of the property you want to buy, with the remaining 5% made up of your deposit.

An arrangement such as this will sometimes be referred to as a 95% LTV mortgage, where LTV stands for ‘loan-to-value’ ratio.

The lender will still want to see if you can afford the mortgage, so they will be accessing things like your income, expenditure and, very importantly, your credit score and results as well.

What is 95 mortgage for new build home?

A 95% mortgage for a new build property allows you to buy a brand new home with a minimal deposit, typically just 5%. This can be a game-changer for first-time buyers who might struggle to save a larger amount upfront.

Here’s the gist:

  • Lower Deposit: You only need 5% of the purchase price as a down payment, making homeownership more accessible.
  • Faster on the Ladder: You can buy sooner, potentially avoiding years of saving for a bigger deposit, especially in a rising market.
  • Government Help: Some government schemes in the UK (like Help to Buy) might even offer additional support for new builds with 95% mortgages.

However, keep in mind:

  • Higher Rates: Expect less favourable interest rates compared to mortgages with larger deposits.
  • Limited Options: Fewer lenders might offer 95% mortgages for new builds, potentially restricting your choices.

Lenders will however expect better than standard credit reports with nearly all lenders offering 95% only agreeing to lend where the applicants have a near-perfect credit report and score.

It is also worth noting that with a 95% mortgage it’s not just about having a good credit score but showing that you’ve had some form of credit recently and have used it responsibly.
