What is a 95% Mortgage
What is a 95% mortgage?
A 95% mortgage allows you to borrow 95% of the value of a property, and the remaining 5% is covered through your deposit. A 5% deposit would help you get onto the property ladder sooner as you don’t have to save up as much.
Government 95% mortgage guarantee scheme
It was announced in the Spring Budget that a new scheme of 95% mortgages guaranteed by the Government will launch next Month. This will allow homebuyers to secure mortgages with 5% deposits, with the government underwriting the 95% mortgage loans. 95% mortgages were withdrawn by most lenders at the start of the pandemic and so this should allow more people to purchase property.
What do we know?
- The scheme is available to all home buyers (not first time buyers) on properties up to £600,000
- The scheme is available from April 2021
- Major lenders already signed up are Barclays, HSBC, Natwest and Santender
