Finding the best 95% mortgage deal

When you take out a 95% mortgage, you’ll put down a deposit of 5% and borrow the remaining 95% of the property value. These are often described as being ‘95% Loan to Value’ (LTV) deals. Loan to Value is a term used to express the percentage of the mortgage in relation to the property value.

Some lenders only offer this type of deal to first time buyers, who may also be eligible for the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, designed to help those with small deposits. Find out more about in our guide on Help to Buy.

It’s worth noting that if you can afford to put down a bigger deposit, you may be able to take out a 90% mortgage and will have access to a wider range of mortgage deals at lower rates.

If you’re not sure which deals you might be eligible for, or would like more information on the various options available to you, contact us today to speak to an expert adviser.
