Finding the best 90% mortgage deal

A 90% Loan to Value (LTV) mortgage allows you to buy a home by putting down a deposit of 10% of the property’s value (or using the equity in a current property if you’re looking to remortgage), and borrowing the remaining 90%. The term ‘Loan to Value’ is used to describe the size of the mortgage in relation to the property value.

If you want peace of mind that your mortgage payments won’t change if interest rates rise, you might want to consider locking into a fixed rate 90% mortgage deal. Alternatively, you might prefer a variable rate 90% deal if you believe that interest rates are likely to stay low for longer.

You may also be eligible for one of the current Government schemes designed to help those with smaller deposits, such as Help to Buy or Shared Ownership.

Whichever type of 90% mortgage you choose, we’ll give you our expert advice and search across the market to find the best deal for you. If you can’t stretch to a 10% deposit, there are also 95% mortgages to choose from too, so get in touch today and see how we can help.
