Essentially, the bigger the deposit the better – the more choice there will be and the lower the interest rate and set up costs.
However, if you don’t have much of a deposit, there are sometimes ways of getting around this through vendor gifted deposits, guarantor mortgages, shared equity or shared ownership schemes.
If you are buying at a discounted price from a family member or from your landlord there are more options available, some only requiring small deposits and some no deposits at all.
We can recommend the type of mortgage that will best meet your needs, whether fixed, tracker, variable or discount and if you want interest only or repayment.
We advise on the lowest overall cost basis taking the interest rate as well as set up fees into account and we search through a whole range of mortgages and lenders on the market.
